Here is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading magnesium supplements: Innovix Labs Advanced Magnesium, Doctor's Best High Absorption 100% Chelated Magnesium (240 Count), JigSaw Magnesium w/SRT (120 Count), Nutrigold Magnesium Gold, Now Foods Magnesium Citrate (200 mgs), Natural Vitality Natural Calm Raspberry Lemon, Solgar Magnesium Citrate, Life Extension Magnesium Caps, Thorne Research Magnesium Citrate, and Now Foods Magnesium Capsules (400 mgs).

INTRODUCTION: Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

Magnesium is present in all cells of the body. It is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization. It helps to regulate calcium transport and absorption. By stimulating the secretion of calcitonin, it aids the influx of calcium into bone and promotes optimal bone mineralization. It has been called nature's calcium channel blocker. The idea refers to magnesium's ability to block calcium from entering muscle and heart cells.

Magnesium is the second most prevalent electrolyte in the body, yet over two-thirds of us get less than the minimum recommended 400 mgs per day. Most of us get about half that much. Note that 400 mgs is just enough to keep us from feeling the major deficiency symptoms.

It is believed that magnesium is responsible for assisting your body in processing calcium and keeping it in the bones, whereas phosphorus (and phosphoric acid) leach the calcium from the bones, causing bone spurs [joint pain], kidney stones, weak bones (osteoporosis). Magnesium is also supposed to help lower blood pressure.
I can say I have taken this supplement for years and never suffered a kidney stone and I noticed that when I first started taking this supplement a lot of my joint pain went away (and stayed away). I also have great bone density.
The NOW Brand seems to be one of the, if not the best supplement companies. I hope they continue to produce the same quality they have in the past. It gets frustrating when companies cut quality to save money.

Size Name: 180 Capsules / 400mg Verified Purchase
I ordered this under the impression it was purely magnesium citrate. The main ingredient is actually magnesium oxide, which, with a gastric bioavailability of 4% (that is, only about 4mg of every 100mg you ingest is absorbed) is worthless as a source of supplemental magnesium. This prompted me to return it.

I'm a workout enthusiast. I eat clean and work out hard. Despite my diet, I was still cramping up towards the end of some of my workouts (typically after about 45 minutes - 1 hour of intense training). After some research, I found that many people are deficient in Magnesium; and, one of the side effects was muscle cramping.

After a few days of taking these as directed, I noticed that I was beginning to cramp less and less until if finally stopped. I haven't cramped in many months now. I would recommend this to anyone that experiences muscle cramps while working out.

If you look at my other reviews I talk about trying out quite a few things to allay my anxiety. Even being a biochemistry major I never considered that I would have a magnesium deficiency, but one night after experiencing insomnia for the millionth time I lay in bed and suddenly realized that this was one of my problems. Within two days of taking 800mg I was feeling like a new person. I can officially say that the anxiety I suffered since a kid completely disappeared and gave credence to my theory that my anxiety was never psychological, but 100% biological. Even my breathing has changed to a relaxed calm breathing even in stressful situations. This is an absolute must for anyone to take and everyone needs to take it as it is not in the soil anymore because of modern agricultural practices. Your entire life will change.

These magnesium capsules are so much easier to swallow then tablets! I take 2 a day to reduce muscle cramps and spasms and migraines. I have not taken them long enough to tell if there is a difference in effectiveness compared to tablets but the fact that I can swallow them without choking is a huge plus.

This was another recommendation from my doctor. I have a spinal injury, which affects the surrounding muscles. I take 2 capsules every night at bedtime & it really helps reduce the muscle tightness & pain. I definitely recommend this product.
