NOW Magnesium Citrate tablets are fast-acting, safe and ideal for anyone who has their sights set on attaining optimal levels of this vital nutrient. While this macro-mineral is easily obtained from many foods, low magnesium levels are extremely common for many Americans. Alcohol consumption, the presence of fluoride, and the consumption of certain foods either increase our need for magnesium, or decrease its absorption. Magnesium is not only one of the key nutrients required in both calcium utilization and protein synthesis, but it also plays a tremendous role in virtually every enzymatic reaction in our body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trying something new I havnt been taking this long enough to have an accurate rating. I do know that Im pleased with Swanson products and I buy a multitude of items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good; 2 tabs per day inconvenient Most magnesium supplements seem to use magnesium oxide, which is not as good as (and less recommended than) magnesium citrate. I used to order a Swanson brand magnesium citrate which is no longer available. This is at least as good as the Swanson brand product, but more expensive. I find having to take 2 capsules per day inconvenient, and would prefer a dose of 1 per day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product from NOW Foods Another quality product from NOW Foods. Use this supplement to enhance the absorption and effectiveness of my vitamin C and D supplements. Magnesium is the forgotten essential mineral. And of course, gluten free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnesium Citrate Great price and convenient size for some of the better absorption magnesium out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnesium I love Now Brand products since they have allergens clearly listed on package. Great quality and price also.
Date published: 2013-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good magnesium formulation Magnesium citrate is substantially easier to absorb than the cheaper magnesium oxyde common sold. This is a good formulation that provides easily assimilated Mg in high concentrations and at a reasonable price. After considerable research on my part, this was the best Mg product I could find for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Helpful What is helpful for so many things! Everyone should take it. Magnesium citrate is the most easily absorbed form. I take 2-3 of these before bed every night and sleep very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One good product I do not really notice any benefits of this product but I do know I need it with my calcium and therefore I get it. I take Now Foods products most often because they don't have so many unwanted extra ingredients like gluten, soy, shellfish, etc. This product is good because of my allergies. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from they're chewable! I like these as they are chewable and the taste is bland so it does not bother me. It's not hard to break them up and after that they dissolve easily. I could not swallow that size and am happy to use something that will be absorbed so easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased After reading that the citrate type of magnesium was better absorbed, I decided to give this a try. Very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tablets vers gelcaps My husband bought these vitamins for me and I took all of them and was happy with them. When they ran out he ordered them again and this time I got tablets which I find very hard to swallow. When I went back to the site I found the vitamins but, can not find the gel caps. This should be pointed out to the customer and was not.
