using poorly absorbed magnesium
Posted by Reviewer1613928 on Apr 20, 2016
I have fibromyalgia and was taking this to help with my muscles. This was working fairly well in keeping my muscle cramps at bay, but they must've changed the formula yet again. The blend is glycinate & oxide but who knows the ratio of the two could've changed to them using more oxide to cut costs. It could be more like a 50/50 ratio. That's what it feels like because both me & my husband are suffering from an increased amount of muscle cramps. Oxides are so poorly absorbed that out of a 500mg dose you're lucky if you're absorbing 12mg. Don't waste you're money on this. Looks like I'm going to have to switch to the Dr. Best brand. There's is all glycinate.
Glad you are now carrying this product

I was happy to find Carlson Labs Magnesium at I-herb as I buy most of my supplements from I-herb and this was the only one I couldn't get. Thanks!

I have been using this product now for three weeks and I haven't has as many leg cramps as I used to. I am very satified. Tablets could be some what smaller or smoother for easier to swollow. I will continue to use them.

Well absorbed and does the work. Just a bit too much of excipients.
