Pepto-Bismol contains bismuth subsalicylate, and its possible to extract the bismuth from it and use it to grow metal crystals.
This is a re-visit of a project that I attempted a few years ago:

I believe that metals are all anti-microbial by nature. The bismuth is probably having a devastating effect on the bacteria bloom in your digestive tract that is causing the diarrhea. Wait, you spent ~$120 to get a trace amount of bismuth? Yeah.. kind of the opposite of cost effective, eh? :D BOSS. That was not proper chemical pouring procedure. Slow down and make a nice steady pour. Also, pour it so that the pour strikes near or on a wall, the hydrostatic force will just carry the majority of the added chemical straight to the bottom of the container.. Which also gives you a much much more even saturation level, before you even pick up the stir stick. 'Ball of Bismuth' Uh-huh. Sure. Come on now, that thing has got to be like 91.3% aluminum, with a sprinkling of bismuth. Interesting from a ssientific standpoint. I would say that you need a much mush better way of seperating out the slag than wht you're doing, but you got decent results, so.. Whatever is clever, Trevor. :)

Well I just saw your video, Really cool By the way. I also am a rock hound and have seen Bismuth crystals and thought they where much cheeper so I went to the web site and notice the was making a killing off of your recommendation. I hope your viewers are as smarter then the average Bear. Again I love what you do and love to see your next Experaments.

Imagine being the cashier for the store. Just like a man approached and is like, “I would like 10 Anti acid chewable’s” Personally I would think - wow either this man plans to eat a metric ton of spicy food, or wow this man is making some anti acid street drug. What would you think?

Hold up. "I was able to get twice the amount of chewables for only 50% more" So.. they costed the same price?? lmao Edit: so I did the math and I'm just stupid. 100% more product for 50% of the cost. It all makes sense now.

wonder if you could put a smaller bit of tubing over the to of the test tube using a glass stopper tipped tube. Might have kept moisture in longer... I haven't tried that, but might be worth a try sometime.

phenolphthalein is pink when basic which is constipating (as in Pepto), and yellow when acidic which is laxative (often mixed with docusate or in Fam-Lax)

Just started watching the video, so don't know if it's mentioned but any carbonated drink will neutralize stomach acid. That's why some people drink coke or sprite/7up, etc to settle their stomach. Sparkling water, seltzer water, champagne, beer, it's NOT a good idea to consume any of them if you want to digest your food. Wait an hour before and after consuming the carbonated drink to eat. That should be enough time to clear it and make more stomach acid or digest the food. Dr. Joel Wallach and Dr. Peter Glidden have talked about it.

My experience with this pink goo is awful! If I take it, it does the exact opposite of that which it is meant to do! Merely the SMELL of it triggers my gag reflex! I theorize that this occurs because, when I was a child, every time I had some stomach flu, etc, my mother started pouring that shite down my throat. Additionally, since it was the flu, NOTHING was gonna stop the vomiting! Thus I was vomiting that shit! So, it's not unlike my reaction to the smell and taste of tequila! I drank too much of it once and puked it up! Ever since, the smell makes me gag! Same, same with the pink goo!! Yeah?

Hey bud, if you want to prevent oxidation from atmosphere, do an argon purge. Us welders do it to prevent weld oxidization. Heavier than air and will sit in the glassware like water

You know that @ 4:19 you should have poured the HCl down your stir rod and avoided splashing and spilling. Chemist and others have been doing that for over a hundred years and anyone who's ever taken a chemistry class would have known that. The video in the link below shows exactly this process.
