  • Nervous system support

  • With glycinate & malate

  • Superior bioavailability

Magnesium Citrate is easily absorbed, and NOW Foods Magnesium Citrate softgels are provided in a liquid base with chelated forms for superior bioavailability. 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.

Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mg citrate plus With this supplement you get citrate plus 2 other types of magnesium. Each type has different effects in the body so the value of this product depends on one's individual needs. Personally for me, it is not as effective as citrate by itself. I was also a bit surprised at the length of the capsules (one inch) however as long as I swallow them lengthwise I have no problem. In fact, one reason I chose this particular product was the capsule form as a 200 or more mg tablet can be very difficult to get down. At this point I have not decided whether to re-purchase or keep hunting for the elusive ideal magnesium citrate capsule. April 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ok Did not see any change in relaxation, although the Swason brand does work than the NOW brand in this case. January 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good basic My husband doesn't care for capsules, so I'm glad Swanson offers magnesium in a softgel. October 16, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too large These soft gels are quite large, and usually I have no problem with soft gels, as they are generally pliable and have some "give" to them so that they easily slip down the throat when swallowed. These soft gels, however, are actually very firm, with no "give", and one became stuck in my throat. It wouldn't go up or down, and I had to wait for it to dissolve--awful! Cannot recommend them at all. May 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable Brand I like NOW FOODS products. They are clearly labeled especially as to allergens. They nearly always say "Contains no" then lists them--milk and gluten are what I'm looking for. I particularly like this Magnesium Citrate because it is a soft gel, and is easy to swallow, even though large in size. March 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Capsule size This capsule looks big but is designed for easy swallowing. I had taken 200mg pills before, but they were not available so I tried these 400mg capsules. Keeps me regulated just like the 200mg. Keeps me relaxed too. Great product. November 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't know about the other reviewer, but... I specifically purchased these because they were the gel caps. It's the only reason my daughter and I can take them easily. I also use the Calm powder form, but these are easier to use and they work just as they say they do. December 17, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by horse pills paid extra for these softgels , thinking they would be easy to swallow. WRONG!!! August 1, 2011
