Rated 5 out of 5 by FitDoc1 GLYCINATE vs MALATE
I regularly use Swanson's Magnesium Malate. That has been my preferred form of Magnesium supplement for quite a while now. Swanson was out of it when I needed to replenish my Magnesium inventory. I don't like Mag Oxide, so I won't buy that. I like the Albion Chelated minerals, which they bind (the verb 'to Chelate' comes from the Greek, meaning to bind or claw together.) to the amino acid, Glycine. So, since I didn't want to be out of Magnesium, I got this product.
I find this to be an okay product. I wasn't as pleased with it as I am with the Magnesium Malate form. However, this is a good, respectable substitute. It filled in for me while I was waiting for Swanson to get their Magnesium Malate back in stock. When they did, it was weaker in Elemental Magnesium than the previous / original Magnesium Malate product. But that's another story for another time. I still went back to the Mag Malate product.

This is a very reasonably priced product that works well. I only wish that it had no added ingredients besides magnesium glycinate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by glogirl A Needed Supplement
Magnesium is necessary for bones, as well as many other bodily functions. I like this because most others contain citrate - which I definitely do not want. Glycinate is not exactly what I want, but it is albion chelated, is the closest to what I want, and is affordable.

Gentle on stomach. With meals I take this along with a calcium supplement that lacks magnesium. Have also noticed its calming effect at bedtime. Wouldn't switch to any other magnesium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by keithli Good quality & Price but inconvenient
I do not doubt the quality. Albion is one of the most well-known producers of chelated minerals in the world. It's good that Swanson uses ingredients from Albion, and is offering it at a reasonable price.
The disadvantage is that Swanson't hasn't created one pill that contains all the 4 main nutrients for bone health: magnesium, calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K2. A competitor had created one, which I'm using. The disadvantage of this competitor's product (each tablet contains 300mg of calcium, 150mg of magnesium, 250 IU of vitamin D and 25 mcg of K2) is its size: the tablet is too big.
I think it'd be a good idea for Swanson to produce a 4-in-1 like the above-describe in a smaller capsule size. The capsule size of this magnesium product is OK. It should contain around half the amounts in each capsule: 150mg of Albion chelated calcium, 75mg of Albion chelated magnesium, 125 IU of vitamin D3 and 12.5 to 25 mcg of K2 (natural or synthetic). Around 4 capsules of such a 4-in-1 per day would be a good idea for many who wish to obtain important bone nutrition.
What most people can't obtain through typical bone supplements is vitamin K2, which is an important bone nutrition. Such a 4-in-1 would fill in the gap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by glolilly Not sure yet
I wish the recommendation would not just offer a yes or no but a maybe because I didn't want to say no but I could not really say yes because after a couple of weeks I can't really tell what it is doing to my muscles and nerves. So I am still on the fence about this one.

I have been using magnesium glycinate for about 3 months now. I replaced my previous, more expensive brand with this product from Swanson after I finished the bottle. It is just as effective as the previous brand. I have been using the Swanson product for about a month.
I sleep through the night, 6 -7 hours, sometimes more!!
I haven't had any stomach issues sometimes associated with magnesium. I would highly recommend this product.

A great product. Magnesium is needed in the body to help with the production of over 300 enzymes. I just wish it came in a little bit larger size like 250 mg per capsule.

I take a couple of Swanson's Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate before going to bed. Not only does it help me to relax and get to sleep easily, but it also has the added benefit of improving my regularity.

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.

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!

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.
