Magnesium has many functions in the human body. In bone health, it plays a role in the structural integrity of bone. Magnesium plays a role in over 300 fundamental life dependent cellular reactions. Vitamin B5 is vital for a healthy nervous system and has many other roles in maintaining health. Vitamin B6 is also vital for a healthy nervous system and aids in the absorption of magnesium. Vitamin C is required for the growth and repair of tissues. It is essential in wound healing and for the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C also enhances the absorption of magnesium. Potassium is an important mineral for maintaining the pH balance of blood, body-water balance, and for proper nerve and muscle function. Selenium is a mineral and an antioxidant with many functions, including defending against free-radical damage. Manganese is another important mineral needed for healthy skin, bone, and cartilage formation. Zinc is an essential mineral that is found in almost every cell. It stimulates the activity of approximately 100 enzymes. Folate is a member of the B-Vitamin family, which helps produce and maintain new cells. Folate is needed to make DNA and RNA, the building blocks of cells. Biotin is another member of the B-Vitamin family that assists the body in metabolizing protein, fats and carbohydrates from food. Chromium is a trace mineral needed by the body for normal growth and health. Chromium helps your body use sugar properly. It is also needed for the breakdown of proteins and fats.

I like this product because it mixes in COLD water. I only need to use 1/4 the suggested daily amount, and I add some extra water to taste because it has strong enough cherry flavor. This works well for me and I will buy it again!
This is a good source of supplemental magnesium. I divide the two-scoop dosage into half-scoops four times a day in organic hot tea as a sweetener. In summer I will use it to sweeten organic iced tea and organic limeade.
Taste is way tooo Awful.

Impossible to ingest. I can't believe that this is able to be sold. I read the reviews, and I am trying to figure out how other people are able to take this powder.? Too sweet and strong... absolutely can't recommend. It is going to sit on my shelf, till I meet someone that actually can drink this. Hmmm
I love this stuff!

we ALL need more magnesium...and this is a simple and tasty way to get it. The taste is just like a cherry posicle, and the price can't be beat. After suffering decades of muscle cramps, difficulty sleeping and headaches I've finally found a cure! Regular use of magnesium has made a HUGE difference in my life. It works quickly and effectively. The difference is subtle but very real. Buy it for the taste, reorder it for profound improvement you will feel. Iherb ships really quickly, too. I believe that nutritional supplements saved my life. I've tried a lot of products, and I know what works and what doesn't. My reviews are honest, straighforward, and based on my experience. Read my other reviews to quickly learn from my three decades of research and experimentation.
An easy-to-take and effective Magnesium Supplement

Indeed, as other customers have commented here, this product is sweet (think Kool-Aid!), thanks to the stevia that's part of this mix. In general I don't care for most stevia-flavored products, but this drink isn't that bad. I've tried a few other brands, but I keep coming back to this one. Since I've tested low in magnesium in the past (very common for most Americans nowadays), I've made this drink a part of my morning routine and I do notice a difference when I don't take it. The recommended serving size is 2 scoops, which confers 700 mg of Magnesium (as magnesium malate), and a good array of supporting synergistic nutrients. As anyone who has taken magnesium supplements in the past may know, 700 mg of magnesium is a fairly hefty dose to take all at once, and may produce the unintended consequence of loose stools. Because of this issue, and because this product tastes so sweet, I've found it's much more practical to use only half the recommended dose (1 scoop). Lately I have been mixing it with warm filtered water (rather than cold or room temperature water) and adding the juice of a fresh-squeezed lime. The lime cuts the sweetness a bit and gives it a pleasant tanginess. If you're taking free-form amino acid supplements of any kind (i.e., BCAA's, arginine, tyrosine, glutamine, etc), which often have to be taken on an empty stomach for full effect, this is a great drink to take them with, since it will help them get absorbed and metabolized.

I've taken this every night for a few years. Love the taste, and love the calming effects

It's less expensive than the brand I was using, it's got other vitamins included too. It doesn't dissolve without stirring like it says on the label. I'm also not too fond of the Cherry flavor so I dilute it more or add my Emergen-C packet to it.
