Rated 2 out of 5 by Georgepie74 is it even magnesium?
I'd like some input from Swanson regarding this product.
Does it have some kind of PH buffer in it, because other pure Magnesium citrate powder than I have ordered tastes noticeably sour (like citrus) or citric acid (hence the name) This however tastes like nothing, completely neutral.
In addition, it does not react to alkaline chemicals so I have doubts that it is even magnesium citrate..
Typically I get a relaxed sensation when taking these supplements (as I always have with either mag citrate capsules or the powder. This I do not.
Simple Question :

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ima11 Effective and easy to dissolve
We switched to this from a well known brand due to it better dissolving properties when mixed with water. Also was one dollar less for same amount.

I like the powder because one can measure the amount one uses to fit the situation.

I have used another brand for years and thought I would try the Swanson brand, what a mistake! It would not dissolve (even in boiling water) and it tasted awful. I am going back to my old brand even though it costs 4x as much, it's worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by irakor I don't like it
I used to buy Ionic-Fizz Magnesium Plus for my bones, to take with calcium and vitamin D. It makes a tasty drink that I took with my meals. However, it's price almost doubled recently, so I bought this one to try, its price is great. But when I solved it in a cup of water it is not tasty at all. I don't want to take it with sweet juices because I am trying to have less sugar. So next time I will buy magnesium capsules from Swanson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by notomarx This is a return purchase
I have used this product now for over 2 years and continue to find it to be one of the best sources of Magnesium. The product dissolves in water which is how you know it contains real now plastic ingredients. This is a return purchase and I will continue to purchase the product.

Swanson's Pure Magnesium Citrate Powder has an excellent price and, unlike pill form, has no added ingredients. It is just pure magnesium. I mix it with a quarter teaspoon of Swanson's Vitamin C with rosehips powder and water at night. This combination helps me get to sleep.

No fillers...just Magnesium Citrate so you are giving your body what it needs without extra chemicals. It seems to help me sleep better and relax.

How wonderful to finally find pure magnesium citrate powder without all the fillers! And I don't even have to open capsules in order to mix it with my juice or milk. Saves a lot of time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pingo Doesn't mix
Unfortunately this doesn't dissolve in water, the only way to take it is to put it in a smoothie. I prefer to have it in water and sip on it throughout the day but this just sits on the bottom of my water bottle. I hope they fix this because it is really good value.

I like powdered products to add to my green drink in the mornings. This is an easy way to get in my magnesium.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kate77 Sorry cannot recommend this
I have used and liked this product previously but this batch is awful. Will not dissolve and is gritty like glass particles in the bottom of the cup. Also the good taste is now gone and it tastes like chalk. Am returning the two I just purchased. Sorry Swansons, this is not good.

As soon as the powder hits water, it turns to glue at the bottom of your cup. Try to mix it with a spoon - and you'll end up scraping hard your spoon to take this stuff off it. Tried cold, warm and hot water with the same results. Absolutely not acceptable. Returning. P.S. Customer service rep on phone was very nice and helpful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by motherhenof5 Not as it was.....taffy consistency now
I agree with the other reviewer that stated it was like glue. I have been buying this very product for about a year, and it had always been great. This last batch from about 2 months ago is different. I heard they might have changed suppliers, but the label does not indicate anything different. It does not dissolve well but is like taffy at the bottom, not to mention it is not tart anymore, instead it takes the taste away from the drink and makes it hard to drink. I cannot recommend this to anyone! But, NOW Foods has a magnesium citrate powder that is a good deal from Swanson and is good. It tastes and mixes like this one USED to do. I do recommend the NOW version.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sara135 the bottle was bad
I have bought this twice - the first bottle was okay - not spectacular but accepable.
The second bottles of both the Mg Citrate and the Calcium Citrate are not. Back to NOW brand for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leacat Magnesium Citrate - Swanson brand
I highly recommend magnesium citrate and the Swanson brand is just what I was looking for. After reading information by Russell Blaylock about the possible benefits of magnesium citrate I was moved to purchase this product. I find it to be of excellent quality and a fantastic bargain.

Rated 1 out of 5 Swanson magnesium powder
This product is a waste of money. I gave it a try to keep my order all Swanson products. It is not usable. The powder does not dissolve no matter what I try. I have ordered the brand name powder at retail stores and here from Swanson. Never had a problem. Use the good stuff from the start, not this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by zzzz good product - useless label
This is a good product with a good price. It is nice to use as the powder does not clump. The label is pretty useless, however, because it does not tell you how much is in a tablespoon, teaspoon, or anything realistic. The product comes with a little plastic scoop inside. The label says, '1 scoop 3.9 G' Come on. Who would take that much at once ? I'm sure there would be a little diarrhea problem for most people. And the body can only absorb 400 mg or so at once, depending on the form of magnesium, so you should take smaller doses more often if you want to load up. Nowhere does it say how a scoop relates to a common measure, so I had to get into the messy business of pouring from the scoop into measuring spoons to determine that 1 scoop is about 1 heaping teaspoon. The label also says, 'amount per serving 630 mg'. OK. So what measure am I supposed to use to get that ? It is not like I could eyeball the scoop. That would be a little over 1/6th of a scoop. The labeling makes me think this product was slapped together with little thought for the customer.
