    The least loosening magnesium supplement.

    I can't tolerate enough of most magnesium supplements because they make me too loose. With this product I can take 2-3 per day and have normal bowels.

            These pills are effective and melt OK in stomach. I usually prefer capsules for that, but I prefer a larger dose more. I need these for my adrenal fatigue as I throw out my minerals fast and daily. I get cramps without Mg.

              Suffered from restless legs and muscle cramps for years and tried many forms of magnesium. This was the only one that has worked I will never stop taking this no cramps no restlessness .... brilliant product. Soils worldwide are depleted of magnesium and potassium/calcium rich fertilizers upset the balance in our bodies. Magnesium protects the heart and lowers cholesterol amongst many other things. Vital for everyone.

                      I was on prescribed medication for RLS which didn't stop the Restless Leg Syndrome. When I added the Magnesium Citrate, it allowed me to get to sleep but had the runs in the morning. Magnesium Glycinate alleviates that problem. The tablets are HUGE and VERY hard to swallow and sometimes produced gastric distress because I don't think they went all the way down. I found that swallowing them with flavored soda water somehow helped them go down and also didn't produce the gastric distress. I do think they could reshape the tablets or something to make them easier to swallow. I highly recommend this product for RLS!

                          This is a good product, but the label and description are misleading - you have no way of knowing till the bottle is in your hand that you need 2 tablets to equal 400 mg. So you have to take twice as many, and pay twice as much as you thought when you ordered. So, I'd recommend it but with a warning.

                              I've been taking Magnesium Glycinate for sleep at night and have noticed a tremendous difference in my ability to fall asleep, waking less frequently and being able to fall back to sleep easily. I don't feel groggy at all in the morning and feel well rested. I have battled insomnia for 5 years now and have found that Magnesium Glycinate really works well for me. I'll be taking it for many years to come as it works!

                                      First, as proven in a very large medical study, Mg works better than ANY statin - it not only lowered my LDL by 64 points but more importantly, this also raised my HDL by 19 points!!! This type (Mg Glycinate) appears to be easier on my system (hopefully, it does as well on my LDL/HDL but I don't know this yet; my first use was with the simple Mg oxide and that worked very well.) The Mg when added to my high dose Niacin (use niacin only under a MD's careful supervision for liver issues! Blood liver function tests are essential!) doubled my HDL! Warning - large dose niacin can lead to liver failure do not take except after consulting with your doctor! NEVER combine a statin and niacin except by a doctors advice and supervision.

                                              My internist prescribes only this brand and type of magnesium because it very solluble and does not cause upset stomach like other magnesium supplements. I once traveled over 100 miles to get Kal Magenesium at the only health food store that provided it. I was very thankful that Vitamin Shoppe sells the product. Not only do I appreciate the convenience of ordering from my home, but I save over half the cost for the product. I have been using Kal magnesium glycinate for over ten years to calm my aggitation due to lymes disease and migraines.

                                                  I read a study about taking 600mg per day of magnesium and it helping the frequency of the participants migraines gow down. I was getting 10 days of migraines per month. Started taking this magnesium 2 weeks ago and haven't had a migraine yet. I'm sure I will get more migraines, but I am hopeful it really will help limits the number of migraines I have per month. So far so good!

                                                      I can't tolerate enough of most magnesium supplements because they make me too loose. With this product I can take 2-3 per day and have normal bowels.

                                                      Jeff K: With adrenal stress, I use the element to help my adrenals rest in the evening, taking a tablet at bedtime. It does seem to help for this issue, but I don't remember how long before I noticed the difference. Jeff K Jan 14, 2013

                                                      James P: It depends on why you're taking magnesium, which is involved in 300 different chemical reactions in the body. If you're taking it for leg cramps, or better sleep, results could come relatively quickly. Jan 14, 2013

                                                      James P: Yes, you can take it indefinitely.
                                                      Are there any risks associated with too much magnesium?
                                                      High doses of magnesium can lead to a laxative effect or diarrhea, and high levels of magnesium in the blood can lead to heart problems.

                                                      Are there any other special considerations?
                                                      If you have heart disease or kidney problems, consult with your physician before taking magnesium supplements, as they can adversely affect these conditions.

                                                      If you take oral tetracycline, magnesium may reduce its effectiveness. Read label directions for more information.

                                                      And for more information, you can check Dr. Andrew Weil's Web site.

                                                      John S: We are all different. I suggest you talk it over with a physician that has a holistic philosophy. My doc has me do periodic blood work as I have 2 chronic illnesses. I take what she recommends, and she explains the reasons. I don't take supplements one day a week so my body has to work on its own. But, what is appropriate for me, may not be for you. Also, some supplements should not be taken without a break or above certain dosages. Bottom line: become an informed consumer and have a plan and reason for taking anything, not just a sales ad.
                                                      Be well.

                                                      Rodger G: Hi Carolyn,

                                                      As I understand it, there are possible negative side effects that can be realized by taking this form or magnesium. Also existing health conditions may pre-empt its use.

                                                      Best advice is to discuss this with your personal physician before taking to determine if okay to take and if so, in what amounts and over what period of time.

                                                      Judy S: Hiya Maureen,

                                                      They aren't small... They are white and oval shaped. And about 7/8 of an inch long (at their longest point) and 3/7 of an inch wide and 1/4 of and inch thick. I take them with food and they seem to go down easier...

                                                      Hope that helps!

                                                      Nancy B: I bought Mag Glycinate because it's not supposed to cause 'intestinal hurry' as much as other forms.

                                                      It doesn't work for ME. I've also tried Pico Ionic drops in water - they don't work unless I take very tiny amounts at a time throughout the day.

                                                      Next, I'll try magnesium applied to my skinn -

                                                      Margaret S: Hello, these pills measure 15/16" long, 7/16" wide at the center (tapering to 1/4" at the ends) and are 5/16" thick (tapering to 3/16" thick at the ends. They're pretty big--but the tapered shape makes it a little easier to swallow IMO. Hope this helps! Sep 9, 2013

                                                      Megan R: Serving size is two, and a serving is 400MG. So a single pill is 200MG. Also I have read that only about 40% is actually absorbed (much higher than other forms of Magnesium), so keep that in mind as you are taking these pills. May 29, 2014
