In updating my experience with this Calcium/Magnesium Citrate powder, one must note that if you do have any form of inflamatory bowel disease, a little too much of this stuff [amount varies for the individual] will give you a very loose stool. While it is still best absorbed by people with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns compared to other products, small doses are indicated, or else you will be staying very near the restroom. That having been said this is the best calcium/magnesium product and you get a half pound for just $6.00. On the other hand, people with chronic constipation get nothing but good from this product as it makes them very regular very fast.

If you need Calcium and Magnesium Citrate powder, this "NOW" product is an excellent and reasonably priced choice. In addition to the obvious, it contains a reasonable dose of Vitamin D [100 IU per Tsp.] as well as Calcium and Magnesium in equal quantities, which is important for treating certain conditions and for general health. It even tastes O.K., like mild lemon juice [citrate]. We mix 1 teaspoon into citrus juice with powdered Brewer's Yeast and Astragalus twice per day.

Of course if you really don't like the taste of this in any beverage or food, you can easily make your own capsules. Size "00", or "000" being the ideal as a therapeutic dose can be had with 1 or 2 capsules. One might ask, then why not just buy pills in the first place. The answer is simply this; why have the 3 needed nutrients adulterated with heat and fillers and in the process made less active and more difficult to assimilate?

This "NOW" Product is one of the few that offers both minerals in Citrate form.

I know this is just due to the purposes for which I bought this, but just wanted to write this up in case it would help others. I bought this since it was linked to several sites showing how to make homemade remineralizing toothpaste. It wasn't until after I tasted it that I realized it fizzles and has a surprisingly very sour taste that I did some research and found out there are 2 kinds of calcium powder, and that this is the sour kind, which is not so pleasant in a toothpaste formulation. Not sure why those blogs linked to this kind of calcium powder? Wish I knew this so I could've gotten the other calcium powder, as I also worry about whether the sourness means higher acidity which means not so good for tooth enamel? Anyways, haven't used it again since that first time, will do more research.

I like taking supplements in powder form because I think they are more easily absorbed by the body. I think this is especially true for calcium and magnesium. You can mix this with either water or juice.

The reasons I like this product:

* The purity. The only ingredients in here are calcium citrate, magnesium citrate and vitamin D. All three ingredients work together to support strong bones. It is suitable for vegetarians and vegans too.

* Small amount needed. You only need 1 1 /4 teaspoon so an 8 ounce container lasts you for over a month (50 servings per container).

* The ingredient quality. Calcium citrate is more easily absorbed that calcium carbonate, the ingredient in most calcium supplements. Magnesium citrate is higher quality magnesium than magnesium oxide, which can have side effects.

* I sleep so much better on the days I take this supplement. I have learned that it's best for me to take it in the late afternoon.

* It's easy to fit into my day. I mix it up with water and drink it during my light cardio workouts in the afternoon.

One thing to note is that the taste is somewhat sour, which may not appeal to some folks. If you mix it with juice, you may not taste it as much.

I recommend this product to anyone wanting to add more calcium, magnesium and vitamin d into their diet.

First, a big thank you to Amazon for providing this forum. I am grateful for this.

Bought this without looking to make sure it was gmo free. Bought NOW gmo-free lecithin--EXCELLENT product.(had to request that the Co-op store order gmo-free lecithin) Bought NOW gmo-free xylitol and have just re-ordered. Great product. Not only is this powder not gmo-free, it seems to be "hiding gmo content" because it is a calcium-mg. supp. It has a surprise-- soy-derivative on the label. The supp. is not listed in NOW'S "COMPLETE LIST OF GMO-FREE PRODUCTS" on NOW's website. It has this dorky rating from some rating organization, which they proudly display. Its a "GMP" seal (not finding a gmo free indication saying otherwise, I thought it was for "genetically modified product" at first when it got here). I forgot to include this product with my other order I made the same evening, paying by mistake for standard shipping. This product is going back in the mail, still sealed. The soy or its possible infusion with herbicide may be why some are having problems with loose stools. The rest of the formula for this powder is "to die for", I think. I'm a 66 old lady (ha ha), still trying to exercise regularly, and have felt that mg. in the past has helped leg pain after. Now I need calcium also to combat a tired back, and hoped to get everything I need in a powder. Think again. Already have large capsules (triple OOO's)if it won't dissolve. Really thought that it would NOT be gmo, like so many other of their great products. Wouldn't be so grumpy---if we were not trying to volunteer to get the labeling initiative passed here in the golden state so gave it 2 for trying, and because it was bargain priced, instead of 1 star--LOL (No bargain)
