Helps my friend fall asleep
Posted by Reviewer2091215 on Jun 24, 2014
My friend finds Magnesium in general (he is using chelate) helps him fall asleep. This Citrate and the Chelate are good formulas. Taurate is good, too, especially for depression. Avoid oxide and the cheap formulas, as they aren't very effective and they may be harmful...............I recently found a supplement that knocks me right out for sleep called "Cortisol Manager by Integrative Therapeutics Inc." given by my Naturopath. I recommend Iherb stock it. UPDATE: I tried mag and cal in citrate forms and my body could NOT tolerate them. So I'm back to taurate and cal coral.
This is not a "Citrate" but "Tricitrate" formula

This is not a "Citrate" but "Tricitrate". Tricitrate has more dense formula with 3 magnesium atoms in one molecule. This formula lets to reduce amount of powder to 1/2 tsp - which contains full daily dose. But it has worse water solubility. And for me it was not so effective as usual Citrate. Also it gives me some unpleasant side effects - sometimes after taking it I feel unpleasantly unemotional and closed into myself. This is not the same "calming" effect of usual Citrate. On the positive side it does help with sleep - I fall asleep much faster. I will switch to other brand next time.

Doesn't taste the best but the Mg definitely makes a difference.
If you gasp

That could happen if you sweat a lot, or you have active lifestyle (sport, hiking, etc.) taking this will help. Now... The taste is sour, and it's always something left at the bottom after drinking it. Looks like little pieces of calcium. Overall, it's a good combination of quality, price and quantity.
ανεκτή γεύση, καλό αποτέλεσμα

Κάθε βράδυ διαλύω τη συνιστώμενη δόση σε μισό ποτήρι νερό και το πίνω. Έχει ανεκτή ελαφρώς ξινή γεύση και νομίζω ότι με βοηθά λίγο στον ύπνο.

A very pure form of Magnesium, and citrate is one of the best form to use. I fall a sleep much faster and sleep better after starting to use this.
Better than expected

There are a lot of negative reviews for this product regarding taste and solubility, but having taken it alongside Natural Calm, there is hardly any difference. It will give you the runs if you take too much at one time, but so will Natural Calm. It works out cheaper, but I'm not sure how accurate the dosing guide is. Natural Calm is labelled as 2 rounded teaspoons/4.5 g providing 350 mg/87% DV magnesium, but the NOW product states 1/2 a level teaspoon/1.9 g as providing 315mg/79% DV. They seem almost identical, so I can't really see the NOW product being 4 times more potent. I take a quarter teaspoon twice a day which I find tolerable.
