Great product for best price
Great product for best price
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.
Great magnesium, but mag citrate equally effective and cheaper

All magnesium supplements are not created equal. Before I tried this, I was taking NOW Foods magnesium citrate. Prior to that I was taking magnesium oxide. The oxide form did nothing at all. Both the citrate and this (glycinate/lycinate) form have done AMAZING things for me. I take at least 3 per day, with meals. I no longer have painful muscle spasms in my feet, or muscle twitches in my face. It relieves my menstrual cramps, loosens my tight neck, shoulder, and back muscles that cause headaches if I do not take enough. After having so many benefits from magnesium citrate, I thought I'd try this magnesium glycinate/lysinate form, to see if it was more potent and might allow me to take fewer tablets. I've actually found it to work exactly the same as the NOW mag citrate tablets, for me, and the citrate tablets are cheaper. But this form does still work, and I still consider it a good product.

Do to modern farming techniques most everyone these days is deficient in Magnesium. You can't go wrong with this product. Dr.'s Best puts out quality products. The USDA recommendations for Mag intake is very low. People have been convinced they need to take twice as much calcium as magnesium and that is not true. You should take equal amounts and error on the side of taking more magnesium. Some even do well taking twice as much magnesium. I have written much about Magnesium and to see my favorite magnesium product go to my iHerb home page. If you liked this write up kindly click the yes button. Peace and good health!

My husband was having severe palpitations 24 hours a day. He started taking Doctor's Best and the palpitations stopped within 3 days. I highly reccomend this product!!!

A good size capsule. I did well with these over the period I was nursing a pulled calf muscle. My heart beats felt strong and even. There were no adverse reactions. Although I'm back to taking niacin daily, I'd re-order Doctor's Best, High Absorption Magnesium again.
Less muscle cramps

My boyfriend has been suffering from severe muscle cramps in his legs, especially during nights. His problem has almost disappeared since he started taking these pills.
Good product, big pills

This is a decent version of magnesium which I've recommended to several people. The glycinate is far more absorbable than other forms of magnesium (Thank you, 'Magnesium Miracle', for your great info on magnesium!!! - I recommend the book!), and neither my husband nor myself have 'exceeded bowel tolerance', which was so easily induced by other kinds of magnesium. My only quibble is with the size - these aren't the biggest pills ever, but they're pretty substantial. I'd LOVE it if Doc's Best could shrink them up a little - it would make them a 5-star product. As it is, I grin and bear it, since they are a little hard to swallow for me.
Seem to be ok

I tried these magnesium tablets and they seem to be ok - no problems - however I prefer the NOW brand capsules because I only have to take one and they keep me regular!

I take quite a large dose of magnesium before bed to help with sleep. The good thing about this high absorption magn. is that unlike others it doesn't end up in the toilet!

works well as I take this product 3 times daily, 400mg/dose.
