So, if there are 500 mg in 1 teaspoon, 1/4 teaspoon would contain one fourth of this value;
1 x 500 = 125
Hence, there are 125 milligrams in one fourth of a teaspoon.
I am European and we use the metric system.
Milli is latin for 1000, so milligrams means 1000 st of a gram.
One Gram equals 1000 Miligram. If a teasponn can hold 5 grams then it equals 5000 Milligrams.
Hope the others that equal a 1/4 teaspoon with 125 Milligram are not taking MEDICINE as they would have just overdosed by actually taking 1250 grams. James you are absolutely correct!
