Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate
Very easy on my system
I'm supposed to take magnesium with my calicum supplements, however it always bothered my stomach. Then I read the reviews about this Swanson product and ordered some to try. Soooo glad I did, because the reviews are correct for me and I have no trouble at all with my stomach and this product! Success at last!!

Our PCP recommended that we get more magnesium in our daily diets and this particular product was highly recommended by a friend.
We've had no issues with our magnesium levels since we began taking it.

Superb form of magnesium!
This product is by far the best I've used. It's much better absorbed with none of the stomach effects that can be associated with other forms of magnesium. I highly recommend it!

Quick and Good Quality
This was my first order from Swanson Vitamins. I was impressed at how quickly the order arrived. This specific vitamin was suggested by my husbands doctor and he advised that the quailty was much better than similar products purchased locally.

This magnesium helps my heart and keeps me regular. It is easy on the stomach. I haven't been able to find it's equivalent in the health food stores.

I purposely look for the Albion trademark with this and other supplements because it represents a unique patent providing for maximum absorption. I take this product throughout the day but especially before bed and I can tell it calms my body down and I sleep better. I've been taking it for two plus years now and highly recommend it. The price is a great value as well.

This product is a lifesaver for me and this product has really made a difference in the way I feel. There is no magnesium product that comes close to this.

I prefer this type of magnesium, since it doesn't "mess" with my intestinal tract.

I like this particular magnesium better than any other I've tried!

I cannot tolerate regular Magnesiums, they just run right thru me. Not this one, it stays and makes me feel wonderful.

High Quality Magnesium Supplement
I became very impressed with Swanson's brand of supplements when I found this product. Magnesium glycinate is one of the most absorbable forms of magnesium, but is also one of the hardest to find. This formulation also contains long pepper and ginger to further enhance magnesium absorprtion into the body. I am very pleased with the formulation and value of this product.

Excellent Source of Magnesium
I love this magnesium supplement. It doesn't bother my stomach when I take it in larger doses. However, because the individual caps are only 133mg I end up having to swallow more capsules, hence the lower convenience score. Overall an excellent choice for magnesium in my opinion.

The best absorbed Mg I have used, just wish it came in more than 133mg.

An old stand-by
I tried several other products with magnesium as the main ingredient, but I found this product in chelated form the best for me. It is said that the body can absorb it much better. I find it excellent in all six categories! Thank You, Swanson!

It's expensive when put in comparison to other magnesium supplements. The elemental Mg to dollar ration is pretty high. But, the absorption rate is apparently better than other kinds of magnesium. But, for my next bottle of Mg I would not buy this again.

Great product at a great price
I take just over 2g of calcium daily from my protein supplements and needed to start supplementing with magnesium to keep the 2:1 calcium-to-magnesium ratio. After a lot of research, I decided to look for products containing Albion TRAACS magnesium and found this product. I couldn't believe how low the price was compared to the other Albion TRAACS magnesium products I have found (Bluebonnet, Carlson's, and Doctor's Best to name a few).
Anyways, I am happy with this purchase. It is easy on my stomach unlike what others have said. Albion TRAACS in a capsule form together with a black pepper extract makes it highly bioavailable!

I'm almost through my first bottle and I'm finding that 300 mg daily (3 capsules) does as well as 500-800 mg of the non-chelated magnesium. Getting more benefit with less quantity is the way to go for me.

Yeah! No diarrhea!
I find this magnesium is simply absorbed and hence does not irritate the intestinal tract. I take 300mg in the am, and 300 in the pm, and no problems at all.

This product upset my stomach more than most magnesium supplements. About right for the price range, though.

Best Type of Magnesium
I was very pleased to learn that the Albion Chelated Magnesium is magnesium glycinate. This is supposed to be one of the best-absorbed types of magnesium but is usually very expensive. Albion is very affordable for such a high quality product.
