I switched to this after being on Mg oxide 500 mg. I can tell there is a huge difference in amount absorbed with this product having 400 mg (100 less). My neck and back pains have significantly decreased and am hoping it will prevent any more kidney stones from forming. The only thing I don't like about this product is the size of the tablet is huge and hard to choke down. I am now just crushing it up instead.

Seriously, I have a normal sized throat and mouth but I always feel like gagging whenever I pop these pills. Why can't you make them smaller?

These are too large for my son to take. We liked the capsules in this brand, but they don't seem to be available any more. Tablets are OK for me.

Peter Gillham's Natural Vitality, Natural Calm Plus Calcium worked much better for me and it's yummy too! I guess a liquid formulas are absorbed more easily.

I changed from another brand to this brand because I read and was told by my physician that magnesium glycinate is absorbed much easier into the body. This is chelated which makes it even better. My only concern is that the pill is rather large so if you have a problem with swallowing pills this may not be the product for you.

Works, 2-4 per dose to feel relaxed.

Pill is too large and is difficult to swallow

This product did not help my leg cramps the way other magnesiums have and, as a result, I'm back using my old standby from the local health shop. It made me sleepy and that's good. I'm using these with other magnesium products to use them up but I won't buy them again.

I feel that the Bioprene( which is Black Pepper Extract) did not agree with me, however, my husband seems to tolerate it. I will look for a product without this in it.

I have to take 500mgs of Magnesium daily to prevent my TMJ from acting up - I didn't realize that these were 240mgs for 2 pills, and those pills are rather large. I'll finish off the bottle, but try another brand next time ... Doctor's Best is usually excellent, so this was surprising. Oh well.

I take 2 of this in the afternoon and 2 before sleep to complete the 400mg dose, to be very honest the tablets are kinda huge which turns me off. If I take even two of these at night, I'd get fatigued and drowsy the NEXT DAY. Which is a shame, because it seems to work but I don't exactly enjoy being drowsy in the middle of the day.
