Sodium hypochlorite, NaClO, to be exact. In other words these people would have you ingest Clorox or Comet in concentrations ~ 14 times as concentrated as the above named cleaners.

Currently Clorox is 6% NaOCl (according to the bottle label). The MSDS sheet from May, 2005, indicates a concentration of 6.15%, but one from August of 2009 says it is 5-10% (http://www.thecloroxcompany.com/products/msds/#Bleach). Go figure. For years it was 5.25%, and was (and still is) the preferred irrigating solution for dentists performing root canal treatments.

Of course, these people are the worst sort of charlatans to be promoting the "per os" consumption of sodium hypochlorite at any concentration.
