Highly absorbable magnesium, but huge pills
 March 2, 2014
"I had been buying Magnesium Taurate by Cardiovascular Research for years, but discovered that Vitacost had their own brand. It is much more affordable, which is great, but the pills are huge. I will continue buying it for the cost savings, though."

It works
 February 3, 2014
"I was giving my mom the powder form of magnesium but it was hard for her to remember how much to put in the water and to even remember to take it. I got the pill form and now it's not a problem anymore. It works for her and she doesn't have to mess with mixing it with water!"

"I just received my order and discovered these are horse size pills.So far I've been able to swallow them, but if you have any issues with swallowing large tablets, this may not be the one for you.
I can'treally comment on the effectiveness as I've only taken for a few days.
