"Stomach upset is not an effect of a particular BRAND but of the AMOUNT you are taking,.....some folks need more than others. Think of "Milk of Magnesia"....it has a laxative effect (it contains magnesium). When loose bowels occur, back off on the amount you take until you reach that optimal dosage (no loose stools). We all need magnesium........just some folks need more than others. Hope this clears up the issue. I have learned this from watching YOUR HEALTH WITH DR RICHARD AND CINDY BECKER on CTN and WHT. This is a wonderful and very informative/educational health program. Well worth watching!"
"Magnesium malate is a highly absorbable form of magnesium and assists in many processes in our bodies, including muscle relaxation. this seems a high quality product for a decent price. I take 2 before bed, it really helps me sleep!"
"I have found this product to be easy to digest in the higher range of dosages without any discomfort at the same time delivering benefits from this very important mineral for overall general well being."
"This is an excellent form (malate) of magnesium, readily usable by the body. The "oxide" form found in many lower quality mineral supplements is not easily absorbed and can create internal "rusting" and free radical damage. I find this product works well for me and my wife, and it is an excellent value as well."
"I was very pleased to find this fine product with Magnesium Malate as the main ingredient rather than many lesser quality Magnesium products which use Magnesium "OXIDE".
This product has performed as well for me as magnesium which I have paid much more for ... I couldn't be more satisfied ... Thank you Source Naturals and Vitacost for another excellent quality supplement at a fair price!"
"I would reorder this product. My only complaint is the size of the capsules. They are larger than I would prefer. Seems to be doing the job of balancing the CA & Vitamin D. I won't know for sure until it's time for more blood tests."
"My kids are able to swallow these capsules easily. It helps them sleep good at night. I know Magnesium Malate is one of the best absorbed magnesium supplements available. Magnesium is one of the minerals most people are deficient in. This product was great for us."
"This is a great quality product, helps digestion & also with keeping things moving as they should. Good value. I take 2 capsules 3 x day. You need to take a multivitamin/mineral supplement along with this so you dont have an imbalance of minerals in the body."
"After doing some research, I found that the magnesium MALATE form of magnesium is absorbed best. The most common form in many supplements is magnesium OXIDE. The oxide form has a very low absorption rate. So low, that it is often used to relieve constipation because it draws water INTO the intestines. That's good if you're taking magnesium to be more regular. But if you want to absorb more of it, the malate form is the way to go. I also chose the CAPSULES because they absorb better than tablets. Just one downside : it takes 6 capsules to get your RDA of magnesium. But because it's such high quality, I only take 3. That way, the bottle lasts over 2 months."
