"I am taking this product, Magnesium Ultra thinking I am getting a top grade product. I was surprised in reading an article by Dr. Mercola saying about what to look for in buying a magnesium supplement. He mentioned to stay away from the ingredient Magnesium Stearate. Not sure but it sounded like it was not good for you. I read that AFTER I purchased the product without this knowledge from the article. I will finish the bottle because it can't be that bad or it wouldn't be in your product line. But I probably won't buy it anymore. I really don't know anything about Dr. Mercola either, but reading the Article did make sense to me......."
"I've been on this magnesium for well over a year, and have tried many different forms of magnesium. No other products have given the relief from muscle spasms and tightness without sending me running to the washroom. I think the multiple forms of magnesium, especially these, are the reason for the success of this product. I also like the capsule, rather than tablet form...they seem to me to absorb more quickly. Great product..I'd recommend this to everyone looking for a good magnesium that DOESN'T affect the intestines."
"I took this supplement originally for a year or so. I didn't think I noticed any positive effects, so I let my supply lapse when I ran out. After a month or so, I noticed that I was getting really bad cramps in my calves. No amount of stretching seemed to make it better, and the tightness was pretty much unceasing for at least 3 weeks. A discussion with a friend of mine led me to realize that it might have been due to my no longer supplementing magnesium.
I immediately placed an order with Vitacost to renew my supply. Sure enough, after only a couple of days back on these, my cramped muscles started to ease up. I haven't suffered any muscle cramps since. Never again will I let my supply of this run out."
"This magnesium supplement is just the right dosage and I find it to be relaxing in a subtle way. Since I tend to have tight muscles I find this to be very beneficial. It is easy on the stomach (as are all Vitacost products) and has a nice side benefit of helping to avoid constipation."
"I have a chronic magnesium deficiency, found by accident during a long hospital stay. This magnesium allows me to keep my blood levels up without having my bowels affected, like a lot of magnesium supplements will do. This is the only magnesium supplement I will use!"
"I like the magnesium a lot. My body seems to absorb it well and I notice the difference if I stop taking it. I don't like gelatin caps, which these come in, so if possible I open up the cap and dump the powder in a smoothie."
