"It has a metallic taste which in water is very noticeable. If you mix with OJ or juice it is fine. I like the product. It does settle to the bottom so you have to continually mix. I have mixed it into applesauce for my kids and they did not notice."

"Excellent
source of absorbable magnesium and, surprisingly, this works well with
a sublingual 2.5 mg melatonin in the evening for a better night's
sleep. We take tsp of the ascorbate magnesium with 4 oz of water and a
melatonin about 45 minutes before laying down. Works like a charm.
