Super-Strength Magnesium Citrate
This is a quality source of magnesium that we all need. Make sure to match it with the right amount of calcium.

Great dose of magnesium for the price, though some might find the tablets a bit hard to swallow.

Please take out the extra chemicals
This is a great value, but I wish it could just have vegetable cellulose and rice flour or something. Not a fan of all the chemicals in this supplement.

I think this is a very good magnesium. They say glycinate absorbs better but it costs more and I have taken both and they seem to work equally as well and the citrate is less expensive mg to mg. I would highly recommend this product!

Can't say I've felt a difference since taking these, but I know I need to increase my magnesium intake, and these fit the bill. I have no problem swallowing these.

Quality is the key word
Been using this product for years but Swanson's seems to be the most effective........definitely works

Magnesium is very important for my health. This is an excellent supplement. I've noticed positive changes since beginning this product.

Economical magesium source
This product gives the daily recommended 400mg of magnesium. Being a citrate makes for higher absorption. Two pills daily and I know I'm covered. Plus the Swanson price makes it economical
and thus affordable long term.

Good starting point
I consider magnesium citrate the basic level of magnesium supplementation and perhaps a good place to start for someone trying to enhance their intake of magnesium. I say this because it is relatively inexpensive and much better absorbed than the oxide from which is poorly absorbed and is what you would find in most drug stores. That being said, there are other forms of magnesium that are even more effective than mag citrate. Two of the best absorbed forms in my opinion are magnesium glycinate and magnesium taurate. Also there is the magnesium oil spays and lotions which allow you to absorb magnesium transdermally through the skin. I have tried them all and definitely encourage other people to do so as well because magnesium is a very important mineral that is deficient in most people's diets.

My G.P. thought taking this supplement was a good idea. I am neutral as to its benefits.

Muscle, nerve and calcium friend
I believe this has helped restore my magnesium levels, in conjunction with increased Vit. D3 intake, as now it takes fewer capsules to reach too much.

Keeps my magnesium levels good but I had been taking 2 tabs a day but do well with 1 now.

Good product, Hard to Swallow
This is a type of magnesium that most people can tolerate well and Swanson's is very good. The only criticism is the size of the tablets making them hard to swallow.

Best magnesium I ever used
This magnesium is great. I have tried many & I think this is the best I have ever used. I love it!
March 28, 2012
Tablets are quite large. I started to feel the benefits
in just a few days!
March 18, 2012
I am very pleased, the cost and quality cannot be beat..large pill, but you get nearly 50% daily needs in one pill

my new magnesium friend
I very much like the magnesium citrate that I am able to buy from Swanson vitamins. The price and quality are remarkable. I have found this citrate form to agree with my system. I have tried many other forms and brands, but this one really helps me. It was the first thing I ordered from this company, and it is the high quality and great prices that have kept me coming back for other supplements.

I like most all of the Swanson brand and magnesium citrate is great. I have been taking this about a year now. No plans of changing and highly recommend!

BIG tablet good product
This is a horse tablet I had to get used to swallowing. I like this form of magnesium, though, and am reordering.

I like the Swanson brand of Magnesium Citrate.

Tablets TOO BIG
Honestly, these huge tablets are sized for horses. I bought two bottles but I can't swallow these things! They are three times thicker than you would expect. I'd rather take 3 small supplements comfortably than try to choke down one big one. And I do mean choke.

Magnesium for "Superman" workouts
I've been tracking my calories on a health website (fitday) and quickly discovered I was running a deficit in magnesium even though my diet has been rich in fruits and vegetables.
In fact new research is indicating that the RDA for this critical mineral should be raised.
For athletes, especially endurance athletes, higher levels of magnesium are critical for performance. Just google "Magnesium: The Multi-Purpose Mineral" and you'll find an excellent article backed up with references.
Since taking this product my workouts have become more efficient and I can exercise longer and harder. When I upped my overall intake from the minimum RDA (tracked) I noticed a marked improvement in my exercise performance.
At this price, for these results, I cannot recommend this product highly enough. Bravo!

We all need Magnesium
I think Magnesium Citrate is the best form but I would prefer a capsule. This large tablet is not difficult for me to swallow but I worry about the absorbtion. It seems ok. I feel better when I take Magnesium. My doctor told me an easy way to swallow a big pill is to tilt my head down a bit when I swallow - as opposed to tilting the head back. It works!

I am very pleased with the product. Thanks
