Magnesium and Malate in one product.

Posted by iJenNZ on Aug 14, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I have problems tolerating supplements but this is one that I have no problems with. Magnesium malate is the form of magnesium that is recommended for those with the Multi System disorders (MCS, FM, CFS etc) but is especially useful for people with Fibromyalgia. There are so many things I have noticed that have improved or disappeared since I have been able to take magnesium regularly. For instance I used to get very painful outer ears whenever they got cold but that no longer happens. Likewise, I no longer get muscle cramps in my toes in bed at night which contributes to a better night's sleep though I have found to prevent this I need to get the right balance between magnesium, calcium, sodium chloride and potassium. Potassium I get via one banana per day and sodium chloride via the Redmond's Real Salt I add to food (I do not eat processed foods therefore do not get any salt from this source). I have found that I only need a very small amount of calcium to prevent the cramps. Too much, and they come back again. About 150mg calcium per day is what works for me. This product has helped me in so many ways, I consider it number one among the "must haves".

Thanks for your feedback!

Good Product

This was purchased for a family member who was diagnosed with iron deficiency anaemia and who could not tolerate the prescription ferrous sulphate. It has the added benefit of also containing safe forms of folate and vitamin B12. A word of warning - do not take an iron supplement unless blood tests show that you have are iron deficient. Iron overload is a very serious and relatively common condition which, if present, could be made worse by supplementing with iron.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great product combining both magnesium and malate.

It is great it is also available in this large size that goes so much further and also gives the economy of buying a bulk amount.

Great flavour.

If Ceylon Cinnamon is available where I live, I have yet to find it. The more delicate flavour is far superior to the more common Cassia Cinnamon. I prefer to buying this bulk size that goes so much further.

A good product for those with Chemical Sensitivities

The oral absorption of this product is ideal and it contains no additives which decreases the possibility of a reaction if you have chemical sensitivities.

Pall Protocol

Posted by iJenNZ on Jul 14, 2012 | Verified Purchase

This product is intended to be used in conjunction with other products that are part of the Pall protocol for the treatment of the Multi system disorders such as Chronic Fatigue, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Fibromyalgia. Although I am not using the full protocol, I am using most of it and have notice a very definite improvement in symptoms. Thank you iherb for stocking this product at a very reasonable price.

The Tingling is gone.

Posted by iJenNZ on Aug 13, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I started taking this product as it is one of the supplements recommended to help down regulate the NO/ONOO- cycle which is said to be at the root of the symptoms of the Multi System Illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. (Google, Martin Pall PhD, for more details). The combination of supplements I am taking is definitely helping with the Chemical Sensitivities but an unexpected side effect is that it has eliminated the tingling and numbness in my hands and arms at night which was caused by Ulna Nerve Compression. I no longer have to spend time when I wake up in the morning moving and flexing hand and arm muscles to get the feeling back.

Helped me Overcome Intolerances.

Posted by iJenNZ on Aug 14, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Prior to taking this supplement, I had a difficult time finding supplements I could tolerate due to Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Because of this I started this supplement by taking only minute amounts at the beginning and building up. Each time I increased the amount I would notice a strange feeling in my head that was quite different from other reactions I have had. I did persist and found that this reaction would disappear as my body adjusted to the higher dose. Once I was able to take a full capsule each day, I found that was able to take other supplements with a greatly reduced likelihood of intolerance.

One of my favourites.

A lovely rich chocolate with a good mouth feel. This is one of only a few organic and fair trade dark chocolate bars I have been able to find that does not contain soy lecithin. An important consideration for those who are soy intolerant.

Thanks for your feedback!

Almost like miracle product.

Posted by iJenNZ on Aug 07, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I am very impressed with this product. There are many uses I have put it to. When used in conjunction with colloidal silver cream, it prevents my lips from becoming very dry. I have found the itch of an insect bite can often be controlled with this oil. When used regularly, it has diminished some broken veins on my face. It is the main product that is preventing the dry cracked skin I get on one small part of one thumb.
