  • Highly bioavailable magnesium supplement

  • Easy to mix magnesium glycinate powder makes it convenient for everyone to take

  • Gentle on your stomach and GI tract

It is estimated that as many as 75 percent of Americans don't get enough magnesium from their daily diet, which is why more and more nutritionists are recommending magnesium supplements to their clients—but not all magnesium supplements are the same. Some have better bioavailability than others and some can cause stomach discomfort in some people. Swanson Ultra® Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate powder utilizes TRAACS® technology to bring you a highly bioavailable magnesium supplement that's gentle on the GI tract. Just one scoop of this flavor-free powder delivers 400 mg of magnesium.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use it daily as a supplement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Form of Magnesium This powdered form of magnesium is a highly absorbable (glycinate) form. If you use too much your body will tell you. My only complaint is the taste. You must mix it with liquid and even then it is difficult to mask. But I will continue to use it since it is a very good product and economical.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good benefits; hard to take The benefit of magnesium for me is wonderful! However, trying to take it in a powdered form is hard. The best I've come up with is to stir this into a glass of water (4 oz, for me) and add a liberal dose of lemon juice. I prefer the powder, though, as it is more readily absorbed and keeps me from having to take another pill. I take it at night, so putting it in a smoothie is not an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only non flavored powdered mag All the other powdered magnesium products contain added flavor and sweetener. I like the fact that I can add this to my protein drink and it does not change the taste. I beats swallowing another pill too! Great product. Wish Swanson offered a larger container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only product I can find that is magnesium glycinate without magnesium stearate which makes vitamins etc hard to assimmilate

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tastes gross If I am being really honest I will say that the taste is really gross. That being said, it's probably healthy for a body but I can't get past the taste.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not "tasteless" Oh man, does this stuff taste terrible. I mixed it into water, and while the flavor is not overly strong, it's foul. Sweet and fishy, like decaying aquarium water. Even plugging the nose leaves you with a bad aftertaste. I hate to write a bad review because I LOVE Swanson products, but this one is a miss. I give it three stars because I can't speak to the quality of the product or its usefulness nor compare it to any other magnesium powders, so it wouldn't be fair to rate it a one. I'll be sending this one back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient to use I'm so happy Swanson has come up with Albion magnesium glycinate in a bulk powder. I like to take larger amounts of magnesium than is convenient with pills, and I never have any intestinal upset from using this glycinate form.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product awkward container I haven't found a perfect mag supp yet in terms of completely avoiding the laxative effect - this is one of the best so far. The taste in water isn't too bad either. Just a minor negative: unfortunately Swanson has changed the canister it comes in - it's bigger in diameter (net weight is unchanged# and it's just really awkward to pull it off the cabinet shelf unless i use both hands. #I have average-sized female hands.) I also don't like how much shelf real estate is being taken up by this one thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent version of magnesium I've tried two other types of magnesium supplements in the past (not from Swanson) and had been dissatisfied - one of them had a poor absorption rate and the tablets were huge. The other was a powder to be mixed with water or juice, but it had an unwelcome laxative side effect. This magnesium glycinate is excellent. The only drawback is the flavor of the powder is really strong and isn't really disguised by juice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice Thank you Swanson for offering this type of magnesium in powder form. My husband has a hard time swallowing large capsules and pills and needs small doses of Mag throughout the day. Furthermore, glycinate is one of the best forms of magnesium in terms of absorption and effectiveness. This has been a lifesaver for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Great Magnesium I take magnesium glycinate because I like the way my body responds to it. This magnesium glycinate is especially great because it works well, and tastes great.
Date published: 2014-06-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powdered mag glycinate Not only is the glycinate form of magnesium one of the preferred and most absorbable, this powdered kind is much easier to incorporate in one's diet. My husband has difficulty swallowing pills so this is perfect and so affordable. Thank you Swansons for making this available!
