+ very cost effective
+ fairly good taste, dissolves well
+ fairly easy to dose with a teaspoon
- .. which is still more complicated than simply popping a pill
- atleast I would've liked it combined with magnesium powder

I have been using this for a while and I have tried almost everything to deal with the absolutely terrible taste. I have mixed it in my food (e.g. yoghurt) and juice and no matter what I do the very bitter taste makes it almost impossible for me to eat this.
Not as convenient as pills, but...

I've heard the powder form is more easily absorbed by your body, but it is definately more of a hassle to take in the morning. You have to measure out the right amount and mix it into a drink. I usually take my pills in a hurry before heading out to a run so I've felt a little irritated by the amount of work it takes to get this supplement ready. One day is fine, but day after day... it starts to wear on you.
But Now foods is awesome! Great quality product and great price. Arrived in good condition!
Can't take this
