I really like Now Foods, they make good products for an affordable price. Their magnesium citrate really helps me with muscle pain from fibromyalgia, and at very high doses (3-4 grams) it works well as a safe laxative. Please ignore the one-star review at the top of the page. There are lots of things that can be used as effective toilet cleaners that are safe to consume - vinegar and bicarb come to mind. If citric acid was dangerous, then none of us would eat oranges, lemons and grapefruit, blueberries, tomatoes or pineapple. Magnesium citrate is perfectly safe, and studies have shown that it's one of the most bio-available form of magnesium (the other is magnesium gluconate). It's also been shown to help prevent the formation of kidney stones. Magnesium citrate is both affordable and well absorbed, which makes it an excellent way to take magnesium if you require supplementation.

Very dissapointed with loose powder, tasting awfully, in the container. The unpleasant powder covers every tablet and it's impossible not to feel it. I have ordered this product twice and the problem continues.

This product worked for like maybe 2 weeks and then stopped working all together. I won't re-order this one.

Too much loose powder in the bottles.

seems like 1 or more capsules were broken so the rest of them now covered in the magnesium citrate powder

This product doesn't work nearly as well as other Mag Citrate products I've used for bowel regularity. The price is good but you'll have to take more.
