"I have been taking magnesium for a number of years and gone through lots of different brands. Now, under doctors orders, my husband takes 800 mg of magnesium 2 times a day. This product seems to work well, and is easy on the stomach. The price is good also."
"How important is magnesium for the overall health, I think, everybody knows. When not - they are the books from Carolen Dean MD and Marc Sircus MD. Best of all is the helated magnesium. Best form is glycinate (small molecule, easy penetrates cells). And best of the glycinates is this made according the Albion protocol. This is the Vitacost Helated Magnesium - best quality, best price. Go ahead!"
"As with all products purchased from Vitacost, these vitamins are an excellent value and I have complete confidence I am getting a quality product for the best price. I highly recommend these products!"
"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."
"Because this is only 200 mg tablets, I can take one in the morning and one in the evening and that gives me the exact required dosage of magnesium. It does absorbed easily. I heartily recommend it. It prevents leg cramps while I am in bed sleeping. That makes it all worth while!"
"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."
