Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization. It is a required cofactor for and estimated 300 enzymes. Among the reactions catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acids synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism. Magnesium status is also important for regulation of calcium balance through its effects on the parathyroid gland. Magnesium Citrate is easily absorbed, and NOW Magnesium Citrate Softgels are provided in a liquid base with chelated forms for superior bioavailability.

Been taking this for 3 years . . . Bottom Line: YES, I would recommend this to a friend . . . Dietary supplement Magnesium Citrate Softgels provides magnesium in three forms (citrate, glycinate, and malate). Magnesium is a mineral involved in metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization. Three healthy adult volunteers 26-59 years old participated in a clinical trial to study the bioavailability of Magnesium Citrate Softgels, a dietary supplement by NOW Foods. Serum magnesium concentration was measured at baseline, and 1,4, and 24 hours following oral administration of 3 Magnesium Citrate Softgels providing 400 mg elemental Mg. . . RESULTS: The average magnesium peaked 4 hours after supplementation reaching 7% above the baseline level. Average magnesium returned to the near-baseline levels 24 hours post-supplementation, about 3% over the baseline level. . . . Check my profile (Green Text Maybe?) for more reviews! . . .

I take magnesium for all the reasons it's important, but particularly including peristalsis. I am finding I need less milligrams for the same result with this product, which contains a combination of several different types of magnesium, than my previous product of magnesium citrate alone. I like it! The softgels are surprisingly large (long oval shape), but because they're softgels, I don't have any problem swallowing them.
Very Happy with this product

I take Magnesium Citrate for constipation. The Softgels, though large, are easy to swallow with water. I have had problems with another brand whose capsules contain very fine powder that burst when caught in my throat, choking me on the cloud of powder released into my lungs. Taken with Country Life, P-5-P (Pyridoxal 5' Phosphate), 50 mg/day for good absorption by the body, the Softgels appear to work better than other alternatives.

Have had very bad Fibromyalgia since 1977, and taken all kinds of drugs for it. None helped at all. This helps very much.
My GP recommended this to my wife and it worked.

Some time ago, my GP recommended this to us for better sleep. Recently my wife was having difficulties in going to toilet. She tried a lot of things like kiwifruit, GP prescribed medication and also the external use medication. All of them didn't work very well until my GP asked her to try this and it worked. Now she is taking it every night and the next day everything comes out ok.
