Magnesium is a mineral that can be found in a number of foods and is most prevalent in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, nuts and grains.
Magnesium contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue and electrolyte balance. Magnesium contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism and normal functioning of the nervous system. Magnesium contributes to normal psychological function, muscle function and normal protein synthesis. It also helps with the maintenance of normal bones and teeth and also has a role in the process of cell division.
For anyone engaged in a long term physical training plan, getting the right dietary balance is absolutely essential. The body requires the right kind of nutrients in order to perform and develop correctly, and whether these come from food or from supplements, they are needed for many purposes. As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming 2.6g Magnesium Citrate (providing approximately 400mg of Magnesium), daily. Our Magnesium Citrate is standardised to approximately 15% Magnesium content.
Warnings: Magnesium Citrate can have a laxative affect, so you may need to alter our ‘Suggested Use’ to meet your personal needs. If you do experience these affects it is recommended that you reduce your dosage size.
Add your preferred amount of water or fruit juice into our shaker. Then add 2.6g, shake and consume. Use once daily.
Note: We advise that all servings are measured using an accurate set of scales. While we make every attempt to provide an accurate equivalent measure using our Myprotein scoops, these are only approximate and are not a substitute for using a standardised measuring device.
Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dose. This product is a food supplement and therefore should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Store in a cool dry place, out of the reach of young children.

Magnesium Citrate is a great product. I have problems with muscle strength/pain together with temperature fluctuations when in pain. Since taking this product, I have felt stronger, have less pain and I no longer break out in sweats. In addition, my nails have grown like wildfire. These improvements happened quite quickly after starting this product, so I recommend it highly. I make mine up with a little Ribena and water, and just stir before each mouthful as it is a little grainy and the grains sink to the bottom.
Mixability is really truly poor and this particular magnesium citrate powder doesn't have that characteristic acidic/lemon taste to it like all the other magnesium citrate powders I have used. I use magnesium citrate as an osmotic laxative and where I only had to use one tablespoon with other brands, I don't even get the same results with two tablespoons with this magnesium citrate powder. CONCLUSION: I think this is a extremely low quality product that does absolutely nothing
Have been looking for magnesium citrate. Found this which are of top quality and it's the cheapest of them all.Goes Well With:water
Have been looking for magnesium citrate. Found this which are of top quality and it*s also cheapest of them all.Goes Well With:Water
Excellent product and an easy way of obtaining this essential element
Doesn't dissolve in water, which means you get a 'gritty' taste. Goes better with thicker, 'gloopier' drinks like orange and mango juice.Goes Well With:Thicker juices, not water
I'm using it for digestion and anxiety, it seems to be working. Although I took too much and it had a laxative effect, albeit not uncomfortable, I wouldn't want to do that again! Service was excellent, I would have liked a measuring spoon supplied, or known it didn't include one. It is grainy and doesn't seem to dissolve - but I drink it with water and it's fine. I Will use Myprotein again.Goes Well With:Water
The best way to but Magnesium. Easily add to food with very little taste. I add it to my morning breakfast of Flax seeds, D-Ribose & coconut milk (the stuff in tine not the rubbish drinks).
Well, i train regular and have all kinds of supplements to help keep me fit. However for the past few months there have been major building works and major noise disruption all around me.....You can imagine, Sleepless nights, irritable moods, agitation etc etc. Driving me crazy. I read that magnesium helps with nervousness. Magnesium Citrate in particular has been shown to be effective at stress relief. So i purchased some from my protein. I take about 500mg just before bedtime, it mixes well with water and is tasteless. It took around three nights for me to feel a difference. I do seem less bothered about the noise at night and have been able to sleep through ever since taking it
Good if you want your muscles be relaxed.
Perhaps I haven't been using this long enough to notice effectivness but it didn't harm me and I do seem to have headaches which is the reason I am taking it for. Tastewise, it's not bad because it has no taste at all. The thing I don't like about this magnesium powder is that it just doesn't dissolve in water. I stir as quickly as I can, but as soon as I lift the glass, all of it is already on the bottom. Tried putting it in a smoothie, can still feel the sandy/chalky texture. I wonder if you can put it in food, like soups? Perhaps then it woudn't be such a pain to consume.Goes Well With:Smoothies I guess, better than water.
If you want to increase your magnesium intake then this Magnesium Citrate will do it.Goes Well With:zinc and magnesium pill
This Magnesium Citrate doesn't mix well with water. It stays at the bottom which makes it hard to drink.
I'm not too sure about the efficiency, although calf cramps haven't occurred since supplementation. On the other hand the laxative effect sometimes occurs very late rather than sooner so only time will tell.
Magnesium Citrate is a great product at a great price. Taken before bed gives a great nights sleep.
"I love this supplement. I take a 1/4tsp upon waking, and at bedtime - with a bit of water. It's a little bit sour, and tastes fine. Magnesium calms me like nothing else, and I sleep really well now because of it. It's also very good for your bowels and promotes regularity. Plus, for women, it is fantastic for eliminating monthly hormonal problems - take an extra 1/4tsp per day for days 14-28 of your cycle (with 50mg B6). You lose a lot of magnesium when you sweat (and exercise heavily), and you need more when you are stressed. I increase the dose by 1/4tsp per day at these times. I can't recommend it enough. It's such a fantastic mineral. Google it, to confirm this."
