        That warning or sticker is only in the state of California. The laws are different there and it's basically just saying that if you're pregnant to consult with a doctor because supplements such as herbs may cause birth defects, etc. So that sticker/warning is on all the supplements geared towards pregnant women. I've noticed that many people misinterpret the sticker and think that it means magnesium or any other supplement is harmful for everyone. Magnesium is an essential mineral, it should be safe if one takes it as directed.

        I'm VERY disappointed in this purchase I made. I trusted V.S. to have listed ALL the ingredients of this product, but there are 3 more ingredients they did NOT list! And there is NO silica in it as stated online. One of the missing ingredients is polyethylene glycol which is NOT healthy to consume! Had I seen ALL the ingredients that are listed on the bottle I would NOT have bought this!

          I take one 200 mg tablet each morning after my wife suggested I try it to help ease my legs cramping and waking me up at night.

                  I take one tablet nightly to avoid leg cramps. When I forget to take it, I usually wake up with a knot in my calf. That's just my experience, but it works for me.

                        Great product and great quality from Vitamin Shoppe! Magnesium helps to lesson my muscle cramps and has helped me tremendously with my varicose vein cramping. Working construction, standing on my legs all day, at night when relaxing I would get very serious leg cramps. My Doctor recommended magnesium replacement. Also a I love lifting weights for exercise and have lifted for many years Magnesium is the first thing your muscles deplete from strenuous activity what a great way to replenish your bodies vascular system and muscles.

                            I had 24 hour headaches every day that ranged from mild to severe I subsequently learned these were "tension:" headaches. After neurological consults, MRI's, CAT scans, acupuncture, migraine medication, etc etc and much money spent, I did not have relief of my pain, I read that magnesium is helpful for tension and I started taking magnesium citrate; within a week the headaches I had for ten years were gone. I now only occasionally have headaches when under stress but much much less. I take magnesium every day without fail and like the Vitamin Shoppe brand. I don't know about the polyethylene glycol but I haven't had any bad effects from that.

                              My husband and I have been take 400mg, 2X daily for a few years, now. I love the heart/brain benefits and along with Vit. C, we are REGULAR for the first time in years!
                              FYI, the post referring to polyethylene glycol ingredient scared me initially, however, it's ethylene glycol that is toxic, used to make anit-freeze, not PEG. So for now, I'll continue taking this product.

                                  Taking 1 tablet per day, half in the morning, half in the evening, completely eliminated my heart palpitations (benign PVCs) within 1 week. I am a 26 year old male in good health, but had been experiencing them on/off for 5 years. If you are suffering from this incredibly irritating condition as well, I highly recommend trying this form of magnesium.

                                      I was having leg cramps and my doctor recommended magnesium citrate. For me ,it has helped a lot.She said this works better than just magnesium.actually she said the plain mag that you buy over the counter will not help anything. I found that vitamin shoppe is best priced and I use other vitamin shoppe products to get the best price and quanity

                                          My muscle function improved when I switched from Mag. oxide to Mag. Citrate.

                                          your body does not absorb mag oxide but this is the form the mag that the medical society uses to test it's effectiveness.... as usual trying to claim that poisonous medications are the best way to go....

                                              You can feel the difference when you take this at night for sleep. 400mg and I sleep like a baby. The oxide form does nothing except mess with my gut.

                                                  I have TMJ very bad and I read that taking Magnesium Citrate would help and I am amazed that my TMJ is about 75 percent better after only taking this for 3 days. If you have doubts do a search on the internet regarding TMJ and is vitamin too see others who have had success with this. I only wish my doctor would have told me about this sooner.

                                                      That warning or sticker is only in the state of California. The laws are different there and it's basically just saying that if you're pregnant to consult with a doctor because supplements such as herbs may cause birth defects, etc. So that sticker/warning is on all the supplements geared towards pregnant women. I've noticed that many people misinterpret the sticker and think that it means magnesium or any other supplement is harmful for everyone. Magnesium is an essential mineral, it should be safe if one takes it as directed.

                                                          Hi. I purchased this product solely for the purpose of a sleeping aid. While I do not know the medical ramifications for foetal tissue or a woman's reproductive system, I'd generally recommend a dose of 200 to 400 mgs prior to going to bed for its somnulent affects. Also, if it is taken on a regular basis, the user will notice a healthy, overall decrease in anxiety. I guess, given the other review, the standard rule applies, before taking any vitamin, supplement, or herbal extract, first consult your physician.

                                                              Best Answer: I take magnesium citrate for muscle and heart health. Citrate is better absorbed than oxide. I've been taking it for years. I don't know why you want to take it so I can't say if it works or not. If you don't have any health issues whereby you shouldn't be taking extra magnesium (talk with a nutritionist and/or doctor) then I'd consider it.

                                                              Best Answer: The difference is in the organic acid used to make the magnesium soluble and palatable. Malic acid's chemical formula is HO2CCH2CHOHCO2H=C4H6O5. Citric acid's chemical formula is HO2CCH2COHCH2CO2HCO2H=C6H8O7. Both are natural organic acids found in fruits. There may be minor differences in solubility, but otherwise the supplements should be equivalent if they contain the same amount of magnesium per tablet or caplet, and which you choose would depend on your personal preference.
