"This is a good absorbable form of magnesium and the price is terrific. And, it doesn't have rice flour as an inactive/other ingredient as do many of the other vitacost supplements so it is a great buy."
"I was using a more expensive product but after reading the reviews on this Chelated Magnesium I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did. It works wonderfully! But, I'm not surprised...Vitacost has excellent product for an affordable cost."
"I have been using magnesium for about 4 months now. Two months after trying the naturally calm powder that is to mixed with water daily, I bought this for more convenience. It is easy to swallow, but it just does not give me the same calmness and muscle relaxed feel that the previous product had. It does have an affect though, it's probably 30% less effective than the other one."
"Magnesium comes, like calcium, bound to several compounds, and this is one of the best in terms of absorption. Citrate, aspartate, amino acid chelate are all good forms (oxide is probably your least desirable), and the Glycinate form is right up there with the best."
"I needed magnesium glycinate in a hurry, so I went to the local GNC and they didn't know what I was talking about. They only had magnesium oxide. I was happy to be able to get the easily absorbable glycinate at Vitacost with free and fast shipping. Thnk you!"
"I switched to this product from a MUCH more expensive product and found it to be just as great!! I was tentative because sometimes the switch just won't work. But not this time. Thank you vitacost for making such a great brand."
"I bought this to alleviate cramping in my feet as well as help me be more regular with bowel movements. Using 200mg's 2x a day it has done what I wanted. It has helped my 14 yr old daughter too using 200 mg's a day with regularity and muscle cramping. No stomach discomfort and both of us have sensitive ones. Will continue to use."
