"The bioavailability of Mg citrate equals that of way more expensive Mg products. Mg is high on my list of supplements as it is plays an essential role in so many enzymatic processes. I have to chew this as I have trouble swallowing tablets, but that's o.k."
"I've been taking this product for awhile and recently had a full nutrition panel. My magnesium was in the normal range, so it does th job. Yes, the tablets are large but I don't have any problem swallowing--some of my other supplements are just as large. I believe it's misleading to put 400mg on front, however. Generally this means per tablet, but it is actually the amount in two tablets. I even forgot this for awhile and was thinking one tablet provided the full 400."
"I guess the citrate ingredient made this pill so much larger than the other Vitacost magnesium I usually take. I did not realize this when I purchased them. Naturally, I did not know until I opened the bottle.This was probably my fault, but I wish there had been a larger notation for those who have a hard time swallowing large pills. Otherwise, the product is great."
"Good source of Magnesium It is very effective and much better absorbed than magnesiumoxide Only one tablet of 200 mg per day is more than sufficient for me The tablets are relatively large; capsules would be better."
"I have used Vitacost Magnesium citrate for a few years and find it works great to get rid of that restless leg thing...I sleep better as well and it helps with keeping the plumbing clear (although that was not an issue). I recommend it to anyone who has the jimmy leg or leg cramps. It is very inexpensive too, through vitacost and I usually get more than one at a time. I take 2 at bedtime..."
"Super pleased with this product. It works and it's affordable! As a mother of 12 I must search for the best quality and most affordable price for my very large family, Vitacost makes this not only easy but inexpensive. Thanks!"
"I've got a supplements-happy doctor. Not that I'm complaining, but I pop a lot of them. This is a new addition, and I had to be careful what form of Magnesium I took, so I checked Vitacost, of course! I easily found what I was looking for and it's great. If you're large pill-shy, this may not be for you. These are big tablets. But if you're not picky or can handle "horse pills," these are a great choice."
"It seems to absorb once swallowed with no upset stomach or anything. I got two bottles at a terrific price. I usually have no swallowing troubles with any vitamins at all....but THIS one, is large and dry and if not careful, it can go down hard. Three times now I swallowed too fast ( always with liquid) and man! It hurt my throat all the way down! I have never had that happen before. SO now I am very careful, aiming the tablet way in the back of tongue before swallowing with fluids. ( Usually my morning coffee :) ) Not sure I will order this brand again, but it was a good price, thus the 4 stars."
