Product Description

Magnesium activates the enzymes necessary for a number of physiological functions, including neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function, and the regulation of the acid-alkaline balance in the body. It is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids and fats; also for energy production, and the utilization of calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium. This vital mineral also helps utilize B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, and vitamin E.

Magnesium is a crucial element in the body, and even more so because unlike the other electrolytes (calcium, potassium, sodium) it's rarely found in our modern diet, so the chances of being deficient are very high.

Since magnesium is involved in so many processes in the body, a deficiency can manifest itself with a variety of symptoms, the most common of which is muscle cramps. In my case, however, it's hearth arrhythmia.

Magnesium is a quite reactive metal, so as a supplement you will always find it in the form of a salt or cheated to an amino acid. The different forms of magnesium can be quite different, however, in the way they are absorbed and metabolized by the body.

-Magnesium oxide is the absolute worst (and unfortunately it's the form usually found in cheaper multivitamins) because it doesn't really get absorbed by the body, so it's a waste of time.
-Magnesium sulfate (Epsom Salts) is also not good to use internally because of poor bioavailability p.
-Magnesium citrate is probably the best bang for your buck, it's fairly bioavailable and usually cheap. Beware though that with magnesium citrate you can easily get diarrhea.
-Magnesium maleate is also pretty good in terms of bioavailability and it's unlikely to cause diarrhea, but I found that at doses of 100% RDA I would get nausea that would last for a few hours.

Magnesium glycinate, so far, has been my favorite (I'm testing magnesium threonate which is very promising, but too soon to write on that). It's very bioavailable, it doesn't cause diarrhea or any other side effects, and it works for my purpose: I take it when I get arrythmia and it makes it go away.

I'm also very happy with the Pure Encapsulation brand.

I take this with L-Theanine at night for a calming effect. I was taking Ambien for sleep prior to starting this regimen (Dr. Recommended) and have not needed the Ambien since. I am very happy! Make sure to get the "Glycinate" form of Magnesium if using it for the calming effect, it is the most easily absorbed and bioavailable form.

Pure Encapsulations is one of my favorite supplement brands, and even though there is a significant price premium over brands like Jarrow or NOW I personally think it is very much worth it. Not only are Pure Encapsulations products free of any fillers/additives, but they are also made in the USA.

As for the Magnesium, it has really done wonders for my sleep. I'm one of those people who has a difficult time falling asleep (especially after a stressful day), but these pills knock me out 30-60 minutes after taking them. I take one magnesium capsule at night along with one Garden of Life mykind Organics Plant Calcium, 180 Organic Tablet since I'm sensitive to dairy and don't usually get the RDA through my regular diet.

The capsules are a good size: not too large, but not tiny either. I personally find them easy to swallow. The container is plastic and quite small, so it doesn't take up too much room in my cabinet.

My alternative medicine doctor recommend I take this before bed to help with interruped sleep. It works! I suggested to my mother and it helped her as well. Also helped her restless leg, as it relaxes the muscles in your body. Pure is one of the top brands I trust. I highly recommend it.

This is indeed the great brand Pure Encapsulations, at a great price -- and the form of magnesium that is best for many people: namely, magnesium glycinate. The glycinate form of magnesium can prevent the diarrhea that other forms of magnesium often cause. I had been experiencing loose stools and/or diarrhea for approximately two years, and finally determined it might be caused by the form of magnesium in my multi-vitamin-mineral supplement. I tried the magnesium glycinate offered by Pure Encapsulations, and in 10 days or so, the loose stools stopped. This allows me to take the higher amount of magnesium I need without the repurcussions of most forms of magnesium.

This magnesium is like gold to me! My magnesium was very low due to years and years of taking antacids and other heartburn pills and tablets. Antacids deplete magnesium. Who knew? I take 400mg per day and the shakiness, dizziness, fatigue and muscle spasms are gone. No diarrhea with this one, unlike magnesium oxide.
I can't believe how much better I feel. In just two days, you'll feel a difference!

Been taking magnesium glycinate for several years and it's my favorite form of magnesium because it doesn't cause the "speeding up" of my digestion that other magnesium forms can cause.

I like the pu encapsulation products as they do not have additives such as magnesium stearate and others in them.
