Everyone needs more magnesium
The beautiful mineral -that what the Chinese call magnesium. But it comes in many different forms - most of which do not get digested and sent to all of our cells in our bodies The KAL magnisium Glycinate is one of the better formulas. Two at night and relax! I also use a Magnesium Oil for transdermal absorbtion, Ancient Minerals. Very good - don't know why Swanson's doesn't carry it. They do carry another brand and i do use it in the bath, but it isn't as pure. It seems like everything comes from the Zechstein sea bed but if it isn't purified, who knows what other minerals and pollutants we're getting?

A great supplement
I take this as part of my doctor recommended vitamin regimen. I have been very happy with them.

Good Quality Supplement
This is a good quality magnesium supplement. The pills are indeed of quite a large size, but for some reason they are much easier to handle than other pills of similar size I've had. This particular supplement seems to be of high quality-- I was drawn to it for the lack of fillers and the glycinate chelate form, and it seems to be more effective than the 'triple' magnesium Swanson caps as well as Swanson's chelated brand. Maybe it's the tablets, maybe it's Swanson, either way you pay for it. In this case it's worth it.

Good price. Cheaper than buying local.

better for me
This is a better magnesium supplement for me.
I have several allergies to foods and can't take the extra stuff they put in some of the magnesium supplements, like ginger and pepper.
My health care provider recommended this one since it is just magnesium glycinate. I sometimes need to chew the pills as they are just too big. Just drink alot of water to get the taste out of my mouth.

needs a coating
Very good value for the money, but it is a large pill and could use a coating to make it go down a bit easier.

Same as Chelated Magnesium
This is one of the most effective magnesiums I've tried, even compared to chelated mags. I had been using only Carson's Chelated, but this is much less expensive.

Good Value - PILLS TOO LARGE!
This product is a good value, BUT the pills are way TOO LARGE to swallow. Tried cutting in half, but then to jagged and also makes difficult to swallow.
