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.

My naturopath wanted me to take magnesium glycinate for health issues he's treating me for. Most of the supplements he sells at his clinic are priced lower than I can buy them anywhere locally (although many are only available through a health practicioner). This item is less than ½ the cost of his, plus I live in Canada and the 15% tax is a killer. It's a great value, so hopefully the quality is as good.

Easy to Swallow
Have tried other products and found they are large pills and are very difficult to swallow without gagging. This product is in capsule format and is very easy to swallow.

Best Magnesium I have Ever tried
I started taking magnesium after reading Dr Stephen Sinatra's book, Metabolic Cardiology. I tried many kinds of magnesium without any results and read about the chelated form. Love this product and it is a standard for my wife and I. Great price too.

Great Mag supplement
I've been taking this mag supplement for a few months. The value is great and I find that I sleep much more soundly since I began a mag protocol.

This is a good addition to magnesium supplements that I take.

This is the best quality magnesium product for the best price that I have found on any health/vitamin site.

Good deal on Albion magnesium
Was looking for this Albion product -- of course the best value was on Swanson!

By way of blood work my magnesium levels came up short so I like that Swanson sells a Chelated Magnesium which is the kind that the body easily processes. Price was good and the easy to swallow capsules were a plus. It came in a low amount of 133mg. per capsule which is just right as one should take a small amount at a time as not to upset the digestive system..
I will continue to buy from Swanson..ordering was easy and delivery was quick...CJ

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.

There are many types of magnesium on the market. This one seems to be very absorb-able so you get a goodly amount where it is needed without diarrhea, and it is a good price.

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.
May 18, 2013
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.

This magnesium is easy on the stomach.

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.
