One of the best forms of supplemental Mag
Posted by Reviewer1398395 on Sep 07, 2008
Good price, though I wish it came in smaller tablets -- I'd rather take 2 moderately-sized tablets than one giant horse pill. Also, although the calcium carbonate this contains is probably just filler, and has a very small amount of elemental calcium, I still wish it wasn't included at all. I get plenty of calcium in my diet, and more than I really want in my supplements (from various calcium salts, plus my multi).

I've used different formulas of magnesium. I wanted to try the malic version because Malic Acid can chelate aluminum from the body. It's also supposed to increase energy production. Other types of magnesium make the tired, this one doesn't, so it's perfect if taken during the day. I only wish I could get a clean 200 mg elemental magnesium per pill.
pretty good but some down sides

it's good value and one of the better forms of mag, altho at 3 servings a day I got loose stools. 1 serving a day is the max my body can take. If you've got a sensitive GI tract you're probably better off with mag oil or mag glycinate
unsure if this is effective at 2 a day

I have compared this product with NOW magnesium caps(400 mg) and with Natural Vitality Natural Calm magnesium drink, and it does not seem to have an effect at 2 tabs a day. Possibly at a higher dosage it would, but I am comparing the three to find the most cost effective solution. I need to take this for benign tremors.
Good source of magnesium

I keep craving high in magnesium foods (i didn't do it before starting taking vitamin D, and magnesium deficiency is linked with taking high doses of vitamin D) It also upsets my stomach if i take a larger dose, so i'm not sure if my body is using it properly.

My trainer got me to take ridiculously expensive magnesium for a while. So I switched to this. I normally can swallow large pills, but find this a bit difficult to swallow. Also I find it hard to take so many variety of supplements. I don't particularly see the effect of taking magnesium. So I decided that I can get it through taking bath (I do almost daily) with Dead Sea salt which contains high magnesium. I also experimented with adding essential and carrier oils to make small batches of salt scrub and I enjoy that ritual for magnesium absorption much better

the tablets were stuck together in the bottle. I don't know if they got too hot or what. I have taken these for years & they help keep me regular & feel better. I hope the next shipment comes in better condition.
Motherf@#ing huge tablets

Well, I cannot tell if it really helps me with cramps or pain since the only use I see for it is to regulate how often I need to go to toilet. So if you got constipation and cramps this is meant for you :D

No frills, good product. If you have trouble swallowing a fairly large tablet, look elsewhere.
