Better than I expected
Posted by Reviewer3186500 on Apr 26, 2016
Pills are too big and a little bit difficult for swallow, but the product is good. It helps me with stress and insomnia, gives me better recuperation after trainning, and works as a nervous tonic.

small tablets that are dry and a bit hard to swallow. They dissolved in the box before i finished it, even though I took 2 pills a day, so make sure you have enough cotton in the box. Wish this magnesium form came in caps.

Mag chloride is the most easily absorbed form of magnesium. It helps relax my muscles and makes me feel calmer.

Theoretically it increases the NK cell activity three fold. This package is not economical though. One needs 6 tablets for a daily dose. Plus they disintegrate from damp very easily, even if kept in a dark and dry place.

Crumbly tablets. Give energy. Best taken in AM.

I find this form of magnesium gives me energy, rather than sleep, so I take one in the morning with breakfast. Not good at night for me, making me too buzzy. They fall apart very easily, and can damage other pills or supplements if you have them in a pill organizer, so it's best to keep them in their original bottle, and take one out each morning, as needed.

Magnesium chloride many health experts believe is THE most important mineral or supplement in the world. A large number of us do not get what we require daily. This excellent product delivers!
Absorb moisture and disintegrate quickly

According to my research, Magnesium Chloride is one of the more easily absorbed forms of Magnesium. I'm sure the product itself is fine. However, I cannot recommend this particular execution of the product as it quickly absorbs moisture and the tablet begins to fall apart. Like some other reviewers, I put the tablet in a pill case along with my other supplements for travel purposes. The tablet not only begins to disintegrate quickly, but it causes a 'melting' of any liquid capsule that it is in contact with. It did not fully melt through the liquid cap, but it caused enough surface melting to make a gooey mess of my supplements. Even straight out of the bottle, I found it a bit hard to swallow due to the nature of the tablet.

Questionable Quality Of Late
Posted by Reviewer2961002 on Nov 25, 2014
I've been using this for about two years and have been happy with it as far as raising my serum magnesium levels a few tenths of a point more than other forms/brands. But lately the pills have had larger brownish "splotches" than usual. Now, maybe this is just a normal variation for magnesium chloride, but I emailed Alta Heath -- twice -- to set my mind to rest about this, and both times they failed to respond. So I'll look to a liquid brand of mag chloride, or maybe try malate, or go back to glycinate.
Excellent product: absorbs immediately

I have been struggling with magnesium deficiency due to active lifestyle and have tried many products. Oxide was a great laxative, citrate was a bit more applicable but still causes stomach upset and the amount of pills needed to consume was too many. This is the best magnesium in pill form there is. My girl friend likes them too. It has helped me with stiff shoulders, neck and upper back pain and insomnia. This stuff really relaxes the muscles and I was amazed and very happy to notice how quick it was working. The stomach fluid has high HCl concentration so the chloride joins it and instantly releases the elemental magnesium for the processes. It also seems to lower the blood pressure gently (slight vasodilation due to muscle relaxation). I will definitely buy this product again if I choose to go for another magnesium in pill form. I usually take 2 tabs 2 times a day and my gf takes some too so the package could be twice the size. I'm already having a slight panic because I really don't know what to do when these run out. Fortunately the iHerb is so convenient so when the salary hits my bank account I'm ordering again.

It is so hard to get Magnesium Chloride thank you for stocking it and for being so quick to send it.
