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.

Most of us are deficient in magnesium. I read about magnesium citrate in "The Magnesium Miracle", by Dr. Carolyn Dean. Magnesium oil is more easily absorbed by the body, but this product is not as messy.

I've tried a few different brands and compounds of magnesium supplements, and this one seems to cause me the least gastric upset per elemental magnesium equivalent. I'm sure this will vary from person to person, but it works well for me.

I was experiencing a lot of muscle cramps & my doctor suggested I try magnesium tablets. I have been on them for a month now & it definitely seems to have reduced the cramps already.

I have found this product to be helpful with muscle twitching and aching also for calming my nervous system and inducing sleep. The citrate form seems to best for me. The capsules are quite big but are managable (even my 8 yr. old can take them). It is great value for money.

Koristim ga već duže ,ali kombiniram sa ostalim oblicima magnezija(glicinat,klorid) jer izaziva proljev.

The magnesium seemed to work. The only problem was occasional diarrhea even when taken with food.

My mom is extremely happy that her nights are not disturbed by severe leg cramps anymore. I doubt that this is the best quality, but my mom is perfectly happy with this reasonable priced product.
