"My 65 year old wife fell and broke her upper left arm 12 years ago and wound up with a partial shoulder replacement. Her doctor told her to be sure and take calcium, magnesium, vitamin D supplements. Although the surgery was successful, my wife had (minor) pain with the implant. Somewhere I read that the daily magnesium dose should equal the daily calcium dose, so I started giving my wife "Vitacost Magnesium Ultra - 300 mg Capsules" with her daily "Vitacost Calcium, Magnesium & Vitamin D" supplement...the pain has subsided, leaving my wife more comfortable and stronger."
"This product has helped me greatly in relieving restless leg issues especially at night. Massage therapist recommends a high dose regularly to help relieve tight, tense muscles. Also a help in relieving occasional constipation."
"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."
