Great form of this important mineral

This product is probably a safer choice than taking laxatives, especially the "polymer" based ones.
Magnesium itself is important for health; it's hard to get in food. The cheap oxide form is poorly absorbed.
Not the FDA, but the Office of Dietary Supplements writes about its role (Google 'magnesium health' without the '):
An observational study examined the effect of various nutritional factors on incidence of high blood pressure in over 30,000 US male health professionals. After four years of follow-up, it was found that a lower risk of hypertension was associated with dietary patterns that provided more magnesium, potassium, and dietary fiber . For 6 years, the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study followed approximately 8,000 men and women who were initially free of hypertension. In this study, the risk of developing hypertension decreased as dietary magnesium intake increased in women, but not in men .

Cheap, not pure

Again this Now Foods - Magnesium Citrate is the cheapest one and you will find that out, label says that it is 100% citrate only but when you try to dissolve it into water, you will find about 5-10% of remaining hard contamination on your mug after you drank everything else away. This contamination is maybe copper or some other metal, it turns greenish/bluish quite fast, should you drink this or not, well I don't as I do not have any idea what it is. Will not buy again definitely.
probably not even magnesium citrate

so if you put it on the tongue it bites - too acidic.
it doesnt dissolve completely.
and i noticed some chemical fizzy reaction.
so basically i put it into water, shake it well
and leave for several minutes to have the reaction complete.
then i drink leaving about half of the powder in the bottom.
the odor reminded me a sewer.
at least i hope that i consume SOME of actual magnesium citrate.
i think it's kinda mix of citric acid and some magnesium inorganic salt,
probably some carbonate.
really poor experience with that product.
all negative reviews are proved to be true.

Aware that magnesium and cause diarrhea when too much is used and when taken without calcium, so I was careful. Over time I found it began to cause diarrhea no matter how little I used. I have gluten sensitivity and though I'm on a gluten-free diet I may still have problems with absorption so that may be why I had trouble. Switching to mag glycinate to see if that works better.
