Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate
Best Magnesium I've Ever Purchased
I have tried other brands of chelated magnesium and this is the only one I have been able to tolerate. I sought out Albion based on recommendations by a nutritionist that their formulation is particularly easy to tolerate and have found it to be true. Swanson provides minerals by Albion at the best price I have been able to find (more than 50% less than other places I have found). This is a great product at a great value. I take this product everyday and if I miss a dose, I really notice the difference in how I feel.

This is, indeed, a top notch Magnesium product. I really don't see why they insist on using the big 00 capsule to deliver only 133 mg. of Magnesium, even though, granted, the Glycinate (chelating part of the molecule) takes up space. After all, companies use 00 capsules to provide various formulations containing 1,000 mg. and more.
I found excellent results when taking 6 capsules of Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate. . . . Exactly the same as I experience when taking 2 of Swanson's Triple Magnesium Complex (400 mg. per capsule), which supplies roughly the same potency at a fraction of the price.
Still, I like this Swanson / Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate product. It is of high quality, and it is effective. Swanson's price for the Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate is a typically Swanson good deal, too. I value Magnesium's importance highly. It is all too underutilized and underappreciated by all too many. So then, you have a couple of very good choices from Swanson to get your Magnificent Magnesium.
Personally, I recommend whatever works best for you. You are the winner either way.

We need more magnesium
I have been using the magnesium oil by Swanson and I love it and feel better now. We decided to try this also and we are impressed with it. We will be ordering again.

Glycinate is Superb
Compared with other forms of magnesium, glycinate comes out a winner. This being in soluble form means it's better absorbed and more effective in raising magnesium levels in the body. When I take a couple with calcium shortly before bedtime, I'm able to have a deeper, more restful sleep and awaken more refreshed. Great value!

Best Form of Magnesium
Albion is known for their great forms of amino acid chelated minerals. I threw away my cheap, ineffective magnesium and this one is great. Most people are magnesium deficient, and I feel fortunate that I can get Albion's minerals with the Swanson label at such a good price.

sleeping like a baby...
I was having trouble sleeping. I heard that magnesium glycinate (chelated) might help relax me before bedtime and help my calcium be better absorbed. I started taking 2 capsules at night with my calcium. I really notice if I forget, because I can read more than 5 pages. If I take the magnesium, the book starts falling before I finish 5 pages. I sleep better through the night and wake up more refreshed. I can't say it's scientific proof, but I feel that it is working as I wanted it to. I'm very happy with this product.

This supplement has been a quality addition to my supplement regime. The Mg helps relax my muscles, and induces a deeper sleep. Works for me.

This brand of magnesium was recommended to me by a medical practitioner. The quality, value, and effectiveness cannot be beat.
I fully recommend this product for the above-mentioned and for the ease of ordering.

Chelated helps absorption
Many health supplement users take calcium but ignore magnesium. For that reason we always order a calcium product which is balanced with magnesium.
In addition, at times one can have an increased need for magnesium, including to reverse an overhigh ratio of calcium, caused either by other supplements or by food and metabolic balances.
The concept of chelation is to help the body absorb the magnesium better, which makes sense, rather than have the supplement pass through the body without any benefit.
After running out of this product and temporarily buying un-chelated from the drugstore, I can tell the difference with un-chelated magnesium products. They seem very crude and non-absorbable, even to plain eyesight and taste.
I have confidence that this chelated magnesium is absorbable and effective in restoring calcium/magnesium balance.

This form of magnesium has really helped to keep my levels up according to my doctor and he also is pleased with this particular formula of magnesium.

Essential for Health
98% of Americans have low Mg levels, every
enzymatic process requires Mg, highest
concentration is in brain, necessary for
muscles, bones----what else need I say?
Although I cannot say what this has corrected,
this is a supplement that I take three times
Thank You, Swanson, Again---but this one
has truly changed my life.

No longer the value it once was
This product is the only one I buy for easy magnesium intake without upset stomach. The formula used to be pretty pure, but in recent batches, Swanson has added things such as magnesium oxide, citric acid and maltodextrin. Totally unnecessary in my view. Had they retained the "pure" formula of yore, I would have given this product 5 stars throughout.

So far, so good
Appears to be a good choice to get more Mg in the body. We will see how my blood panel looks like in the next year.

Can't go a day without it!!!
I wish I had known about this 20 years ago! It has helped tremendously with my muscle flexibility/mobility. I really notice when I skip a dose. This is definitely THE way for me to get a higher dose of magnesium without the unwanted bowel side effects that are common with magnesium oxide. I highly recommend this product!!!

Thankful for Magnesium
This is one of the forms of Magnesium recommended in a Magnesium book I read which taught about the many benefits of Magnesium.
I'm an athlete who sweats a lot and was likely low in Mag. After supplementing it, I greatly improved many issues I had. Also helps relax me - a bonus!
I recommend this form of Mag to almost everyone.

Chelated is the way to go.
I am taking more of the chelated supplements due to the greater absorbancy with them. Swanson has a quality product for a fair price.

This particular variety of magnesium is well tolerated due to it patented formulation. Also, Swanson adds ginger and pepper fruit to make it even better absorbed. Great value for this quality of Albion magnesium from Swanson. You cannot get better magnesium than this for muscle relaxation and sleep.

Love this product!
I have tried other magnesium supplements and like this one best of all. I feel much better after taking it with lot's more energy and for my over-all health. I take one capsule with my breakfast and one capsule with my lunch. I don't take any later in the day since I find that the energy it gives me will keep me awake at night. This is a very good product and I find Swanson's to be an excellent distributer to work with.

The right mix & the right dose at the right price
I find the Albion chelated magnesium taken with dinner helps me rest more soundly at night.

This form of Mg is the best that can be absorbed by the body. Over intake of Magnesium causes diarrhea and I noticed that for me - the amount is 300 mg per dose. I now take 200 mg 3 times a day. Remember Mg needs to be balanced against Calcium (generally 1:2 ratio) but Magnesium is more readily destroyed than Calcium during cooking so taking Mg supplements is a good thing.
I only wish that Swanson would print the amount of elemental Magnesium on the bottle so that we can calculate how much is being absorbed.
