Made things worse for me
Posted by Reviewer1733310 on Aug 02, 2010 | Verified Purchase
I had good results with omeprazol in the past to fight my GERD but I thought I would try something more natural (if Betaine HCl can be called natural): alas not only did it not improve my condition, it made it worse ! Whenever I take one of this caps, my GERD wakes up. When I stop taking it, my GERD slows down. I will search for a better alternative...

As soon as I stop taking B5, my acne comes back. I had to take mega-doses years ago, but I could slowly reduce my intake to 1 pill a day and even less for several years now. Also giving me vivid dreams which is not unpleasant.
Too much side-effects
Posted by Reviewer1733310 on Apr 19, 2012 | Verified Purchase
Taking only 1 softgel a day - so 1/3 of the daily recommended value - I'm getting too much of the side-effects of magnesium - you know what I mean. And I don't see any of the supposed benefits. Don't know if I will keep my bottle, in case of need, or just throw it.

The taste is strong but last 30 s. At least there is enough gum so that you don't need to take two pieces like with other brands.
No effect at all

I can't believe I took the whole thing, and had absolutely no result ! It doesn't taste bad, it's easy to take, and after reading all the good reviews here, I thought it would be quite efficient. I was wrong.

The texture is very soft and it tastes great. I'm totally satisfied with this product, I will probably try other products from Tom's of Maine !

I'm taking magnesium to prevent muscular cramps after intense physical activity. This product gives me complete satisfaction: no cramp at all after an intense cycling session. For comparison I also tried another product from another brand (Now Foods, Magnesium Citrate) which has double the amount of magnesium. Well, that magnesium from Now has been totally useless, I'm having cramps at night even though I'm supposed to get twice the amount of magnesium compared to this product ! So in the future I will stick with this product. I'm only taking one tablet before exercise and one tablet after and finally have good nights.
Low fiber diet

I realized that my current diet was very low on fibers so decided to take psyllium husk. After some time, I feel better, lighter. And whenever I forget my intake I feel heavier, more oppressed. So it must be working.

Taste good, but pieces are a /little/ too small and/or don't last long enough
Great taste, good texture
