Cheap Ingredients and Doesn't Mix
 October 1, 2013
"This product uses the inferior form of vitamin D (Vitamin D2 vs the better form, D3). Granted, you're not buying this as a vitamin D supplement but the fact that they use a cheap form of vitamin D makes the product itself suspect.
Also, this product is disgusting. It doesn't mix at all. I even tried it in a protein shake using a blender and it wouldn't mix. The minute you let your liquid rest, the entire thing just sinks to the bottom of your glass. And if you drink it while it is "mixed up," your mouth is full of what feels like sand.
This is the absolute worst calcium/mag. supplement I've ever tried. The best product I've been able to find is the Lifetime Liquid Calcium/Mag supplement sold here on Vitacost.

"Calcium and magnesium pills can be so big. It's much more convenient to put a scoop (the small scoop that is included is cute) into my protein shake. I sent some to my sister as well and she loves it too."

"a great way to get my calcium and magnesium!!
I add it to my smoothie before I shake everything up together (too lazy to use blender) and it dissolves instantly into my water or rice/soy/other milks.."

"Great cal/mag! It comes with a scoop for a teaspoon too. This cal/mag does its job for me. I put it in my morning shake, the flavor seems to blend fine!"

I'm very disappointed
 March 23, 2009
"I used to take NSI Magnesium calm for my constipation and it worked very well. I don't know why I tried this Magnesium. It has a horrible taste and it doesn't help with my constipation at all."
