I rarely review a product and certainly not so soon after starting to use it. But I have tried everything on God's green earth, including natural laxitives of all kinds and forms, may different fibers, prescription meds, etc. Most recently, I've gone back to harsh laxitives because nothing else has been working. Well...just three days after starting Mag 07, I have lost 4 lbs, much of my bloating is gone and my bowels are working again. The amazing part is I have not had any stomach cramps...just relief. I'm so excited to have potentially found a product that will help me. I can only hope it continues to work in the same way.

I purchased this a couple years ago & only used it a few times because it made my stool very watery (of course was drinking lots of water at the time). The end of last year I was doing some heavy duty studying so I was drinking lots of coffee, caffeine energy drinks, diet sodas, taking Excedrin almost every day, etc. My eating was atrocious...lots of fast foods, processed foods, and sugary sweets and to top it off I was barely drinking any water. This went on for about 3 months.
When I decided to start eating healthy & lose some weight, although I rehydrated myself (drinking at least a gallon of water a day), I still wasn't losing the weight I should have, my stomach was constantly bloated, & I was barely going to the bathroom. I tried metamucil bars which worked a little, then I tried psyllium husks which also worked a little. I tried senna capsules & that barely worked, even an enema barely produced results. At first I thought "maybe I'm not backed up" but I wasn't going hardly at all...I would get the urge but then...nothing.
I then began taking 3 Mag 07 in the evening & let me tell you...things are REALLY moving now! Not just water either like before! This is a stool softener so don't expect your stool to come out formed, but this worked when NOTHING else did. I'm going to keep taking 3-4 every evening for the next 5-7 days as recommended on the bottle as a cleanse. HIGHLY recommend this...no cramping & very predictable. I've been taking it at 11pm & by 4 or 5am I have to go.
UPDATE- MARCH 17, 2012: After taking 3-4 each night for 7 days and then 1 or 2 for seven days, don't want to gross anyone out but my stool went from very dark (the color of strong coffee)for several days & finally it got to where I could see through it. I'm happy to say I'm now all cleaned out & REGULAR. I only take a couple on occasion now. I've also lost about 15 lbs. since with diet & exercise of course, but my weight loss is steady now unlike before.

If you're using this stuff, you should feel comfortable reading reviews about bowel movements! ;-)
I'm a female, 5'4", 119 lbs. and the first night I started these, I thought I'd kick things off with the maximum recommendation of 5 capsules...a HUGE mistake! Within hours (in the middle of the night, mind you), I was running back and forth to the bathroom with diarrhea. Looking back, I should have started off a bit slower to see how my body reacted to this stuff. Once I figured the right dose out for a cleanse (I just need 3), I was able to sleep through the night and use the bathroom at my own leisure upon waking. My BMs were somewhere between soft and diarrhea but I was going much more regularly, not urgently. Following a night of Mag07, I would start my day with Pearls IC probiotics and found that this a great combo!
Upon completetion of the 10-day cleanse, I have continued to take 1 capsule before bed for maintenance. My insides have never felt better which of course, have reflected on the outside! My belly feels flat and my digestive system no longer feels stopped up. I swear, I can actually feel my body utilizing vitamins that I used to feel pass right through, never fully absorbing. I'll also say that taking care of your intestinal tract is the base of a strong immune system. While everyone else has started getting colds and the flu, I remain illness-free and full of energy!
I love this product and I tell everyone about it!

I searched for this product to replace a different brand that is much too expensive, PoopDoc. Love the name, but don't like the price. After reading the Mag 07 label, reading the instructions, and seeing that the feedback is pretty much the same; I decided it has to be the same product. After trying it, I'm happy that it IS the same product and for about 1/2 the price!
I am 64 and have had severe constipation frequently since I've been 2 years old. No one knew about dairy intolerance when I was growing up and my family ate dairy products every day. Even when I learned about it in my early thirties, I didn't know it wasn't lactose ... It was milk protein or something like that which causes the opposite effect. Anyway, not eating dairy helped, but apparently all those years of eating it caused a very sluggish system. When I say "severe" constipation, I mean once or twice a week was a good week. There were many times I didn't go for two weeks ... awful. Doctors were unhelpful so I had to resort to expensive and possibly dependency-forming products in the drug store. Sometimes laxatives didn't even work nor did prune juice until after taking it for three or four days. Sorry for the boring story, but I'm a great test case for this product.
Thanks to this formula, I can have a healthier digestive track and I feel a lot better. Since it only affects the material inside the intestine instead of forcing the intestine to contract, you don't have to worry about dependency. I did do the 3-day cleanse by taking 5 capsules nightly. Yes, of course that causes diarrhea, but amazingly there is no discomfort or cramping. After that, it does take awhile to figure out what dosage is right for you for maintenance. I don't take it every night. It seems to be fine to take it every other night or even every 3 nights (for me). I take two plus one magnesium citrate supplement at the same time. They seem to work well together. If I've had ice cream or pizza, i have to take 3. The minimum you must take at one time depends on your individual system. For me, one is not enough to work, so I always take 2 or more.
Remember that Mag 07 is not a replacement for magnesium supplementation. That form is not as absorbable in the body as other forms of magnesium, at least that seems to be the concensus of the majority. Also, do not take Vitamin C in the evening when you take Mag 07. It seems to prevent it from working. The nights I forgot and took Vitamin C, the Mag 07 did not work at all so was a waste of pills.
Hope my review is helpful.

*This review may be somewhat graphic if you are uncomfortable talking about bowel movements*
I started using this recently after hearing an ad on the radio. I have been struggling with constipation from medication for a long time and have used many different products. Recently I was blocked up so bad I literally could not gather the strength to push. I was out of steam and just could not go. I said to myself I was not going to struggle anymore and find something to flush me out.
I bought this and at first I took 3 at night, but nothing happened. So I upped it to 5. No change, so I took 7 the next night. I woke up a few times very thirsty and drank a lot of water. When I woke up, I felt that I may have to go. It was not a overwhelming "I don't know if I can make it to the bathroom" type feeling. There was no cramping, just a little gas. But wow, the floodgates opened and with hardly any straining or pushing at all, everything came out. I went 4 or 5 more times that day. It liquefied the whole blockage very gently with no uncomfortable cramping. I felt so much better inside and relieved that I didn't have to worry about how I was going to get through my next movement. People who suffer from constant constipation know what I mean. I take 3 every day and maybe 5 when I feel I need it. I have never strained or felt uncomfortable since. If you are suffering please try it, and if it doesn't work keep upping the dose until it happens and make sure to drink a lot of water! It needs water to work. If you are worried about the quality because of the lower price, do not, this works just the same as the more expensive product. I have used both and can't tell the difference.

THE BEST 24 cents I spend every day (I take 2 one hour before going to bed). I could eat salads 3 times a day and still be constipated. This product eliminated all of that. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

I had tried everything before to help with my "problem" and NOTHING worked until I found Mag07. I needed to have a good product for cleansing and keeping things moving because I was treating systemic candida and needed to clear out everything. This certainly does the job! I took five the first night and could barely leave the house the next day! Backed off to four a night for a week and got a great cleansing effect. I now take 2 or 3 every night and have no trouble "moving" several times a day. Belly is washboard flat because all the bloat and toxins are gone! Your stomach will make a lot of ridiculously loud and gurgling noises in the beginning, but that has backed off quite a bit. it was so loud my dogs would come to investigate! great stuff and does exactly what it claims. Gets you clean and keeps you moving. I don't think I realized how lousy I was feeling until after I felt good again.

Let me start off by saying that I am incredibly sensitive and my stomach and intestines especially cannot handle laxatives, even gentle ones. I also have many digestive issues and a very sluggish colon that gets backed up easily (sorry tmi but this is a review for a product to help you stay regular after all ;) I usually get severe cramping and pain when taking even aloe Vera to stay regular. Mag07 is the only product that doesn't ever give me discomfort. It literally will make you feel like you expelled so much "s***" from your body (pun intended). I take anywhere from 1-4 a night. Start with 1 and go up from there. The only mistake I made with this was taking five the first time I tried it and I ended up being out at the store and having to run to the bathroom! Still
No pain though. Just lots of time on the toilet. I will continue taking these for the rest of my life and I recommend them to everyone.

this product is great, as everybody says it does not cause gas or bloating. It just keeps you regular. It does not give you the runs or anything like that is typical of a laxative.
