Product Description

Size: 90

Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization.  It is a required cofactor for an estimated 300 enzymes.  Among the reactions catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism.  Magnesium status is also important for regulation of calcium balance through its effects on the parathyroid gland.  Magnesium Citrate is easily absorbed, and NOW® Magnesium Citrate Softgels are provided in a liquid base with chelated forms for superior bioavailability.*

I rarely write reviews but I felt very motivated to add my two cents here in recognition of how much this product helped me with insomnia and constipation. I took four caps a day and topped it off with a glass of CALM (another magnesium product) and felt somewhat better in three days. After two and one half weeks, I was much, much better. While magnesium is in many foods, there's probably not enough of it anymore so we are all mag deficient. I'm positive I was because it also helped with a restless leg syndrome problem, and that, after two weeks. Now I take four caps per day, no Calm anymore and supplement with a big serving of raw vegetables each morning (I cut them up and take them to work in Tupperware)and of course, constant water. The pills are big but weighty so they do go down pretty easy. Also, taking four, but two at a time is working good for me. Forget melatonin, drugs, laxatives, fiber cereals....those are not the right solutions. This is. Thanks to all who posted before me and convinced me to try it. After six months of the mag in this form I am even feeling it in my mood-- very calm!

As lovely as a title that is, it's true! I have unfortunately suffered from constipation for as long as I can remember. Going 1 - 2 times a week was a sad normal for me. I was sure it had to do with the crappy food I was eating and not drinking enough water, so this year I finally vowed to clean up my diet, and I did...but the constipation did not go away. Desperate I tried to find some type of supplement to relieve this. I tried Cascara Sagrada, a natural laxative, which did work, but after reading about all of the complications you can have from taking that, I decided to stop. I tried Fiber pills which did nothing for me. Finally I was watching an episode of Dr. Oz and he had mentioned that Magnesium helps relieve constipation. I figured I would give it a try.

I have never been so happy! I now have a healthy bowel movement every single day! I take 2 of these at night before bedtime and saw results within the first couple days. I have been taking them for almost a month now and everything is still working properly. The only thing I do not like is the size of the pills, they are rather large, but the coating on the outside makes them easy to swallow, so it's not too terrible, they just look overwhelmingly big.

If this is a problem you are having, I would definitely give these a shot, they have changed my life entirely!

Beware. NOT 400mg per capsule. Must consume three capsules to reach 400 mgs. Very misleading. Description should include 400mg per three capsules.

this product clearly advertises 400mg. However contrary to this "boast" you must take 3 tablets to obtain 400mg. Ergo 133mg.per tablet,not 400mg. as they claimed it to be. I feel that this is purposely misleading and dishonest and that AMAZON should require an honest description of all products which they promote. Unfortunately, I was fooled this time but I won't be fooled in the future. I hope this helps someone else.

I'm perfectly happy with this product. I went by ratings & reviews, plus reserching the best kinds before ordering it. I love that it's a softgel capsul! It is still a very large pill, but much easier to swallow. I ran out & needed some right away, so bought a bottle of the hard pills. The hard pills are even bigger. The coating makes them hard to swallow & it makes me nauseated. Since I'm going to need to take it for awhile, I'm sticking with the softgel. I have to take them because I am taking the 50,000 IU prescription Vitamin D & have suffered "heart symptoms" from it since I began taking it (palpitations, rapind heart rate, high bp,etc. After doing research (my doctor didn't know what was wrong), I discovered some people who take it, get these symptoms, especially if they are already deficient in magnesium. If I take the magnesium twice a day, the symptoms ease considerably.

UPDATE 4/2013: I ran out of the soft gels again & bought another brand of the hard capsuls at the store, unfortunately I didn't realize they weren't the citrate kind until it was too late. They don't make me nauseated, but they are hard as a rock & I can tell by the way I feel that I am not getting the same benefits from them.
I would like to mention to anyone thinking about buying these - LOOK CAREFULLY at what you are buying! There are 3 DIFFERENT types of pills being sold through this link, depending on the size of the bottle - tablets, v-caps & soft gels. Personally, I think it's wrong of Amazon to list these together, because i you aren't careful, you will end up with something you don't want! I wanted to buy a larger quantity than the 90, so I was going to order the 250 bottle until I discovered they are the tablets.

Many experts believe the most common/cheaper form of magnesium found in drugstores, markets, etc. which is Magnesium Oxide is a real waste. This is due to poor bioavailability. Hence my quest to find Magnesium Citrate or another form of magnesium which has superior absorption. There are several choices which I want to research further. I know Bluebonnet makes a great Magnesium Citrate- at least it works very well for me. Like anything else, we're all different & your mileage may vary. I absolutely like the fact these are in soft gel form and always go that route with supplements unless unavailable.. then my next choice is liquid.. even though I've found a few that are impossible to swallow if your gag reflexes are sensitive to bad taste and smell. Personally I had better results with Bluebonnet, but they're also pricier. If you're looking to save a few bucks, this one might be a good choice.
