Magnesium Citrate is easily absorbed, and NOW Foods Magnesium Citrate Softgels are provided in a liquid base with chelated forms for superior bioavailability. Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization. It is a required cofactor for an estimated 300 enzymes. Among the reactions catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism. Magnesium status is also important for regulation of calcium balance through its effects on the parathyroid gland.

Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish or shellfish ingredients.

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Magnesium Citrate Softgels is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gel Caps too big Not only are the gel caps huge, the daily dose is 3 gel caps. That is very hard to tolerate when consuming a full spectrum of supplements. Swanson brand is preferred and definitely more user friendly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mg citrate plus With this supplement you get citrate plus 2 other types of magnesium. Each type has different effects in the body so the value of this product depends on one's individual needs. Personally for me, it is not as effective as citrate by itself. I was also a bit surprised at the length of the capsules (one inch) however as long as I swallow them lengthwise I have no problem. In fact, one reason I chose this particular product was the capsule form as a 200 or more mg tablet can be very difficult to get down. At this point I have not decided whether to re-purchase or keep hunting for the elusive ideal magnesium citrate capsule.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok Did not see any change in relaxation, although the Swason brand does work than the NOW brand in this case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good basic My husband doesn't care for capsules, so I'm glad Swanson offers magnesium in a softgel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too large These soft gels are quite large, and usually I have no problem with soft gels, as they are generally pliable and have some "give" to them so that they easily slip down the throat when swallowed. These soft gels, however, are actually very firm, with no "give", and one became stuck in my throat. It wouldn't go up or down, and I had to wait for it to dissolve--awful! Cannot recommend them at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Brand I like NOW FOODS products. They are clearly labeled especially as to allergens. They nearly always say "Contains no" then lists them--milk and gluten are what I'm looking for. I particularly like this Magnesium Citrate because it is a soft gel, and is easy to swallow, even though large in size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Capsule size This capsule looks big but is designed for easy swallowing. I had taken 200mg pills before, but they were not available so I tried these 400mg capsules. Keeps me regulated just like the 200mg. Keeps me relaxed too. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pills are too big for some

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't know about the other reviewer, but... I specifically purchased these because they were the gel caps. It's the only reason my daughter and I can take them easily. I also use the Calm powder form, but these are easier to use and they work just as they say they do.
