Magnesium is a mineral that is crucial for energy production, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralisation. Magnesium can be found in a number of foods and is most prevalent in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, nuts and grains.
Magnesium has a number of important functions in the human body including turning the food we eat in to energy and ensuring correct endocrine system function to promote healthy bones. Magnesium is also required as a cofactor for over 300 enzyme systems. Among the systems catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism.
From an athletic perspective it is required for metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats for energy. As part of its role in the activity of enzymes, it is involved in the transmission of nerve impulses and myofibril contractions. Therefore, Magnesium can play a pivotal role in the production of energy for both anaerobic and aerobic exercise.
Magnesium Citrate is a highly bio-available form of Magnesium which allows greater uptake in to your system. 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.
As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming 2.6g Magnesium Citrate (providing approximately 400mg of Magnesium), daily. Best consumed with your preferred amount of water or fruit juice.
1 x level MP Plastic Scoop (small) weighs 3.6g. (not included).

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).

I ordered the 500g puch as it is a great value for money compared to other retailers. I take 2.6g a day with my usual BCAA and Glutamine mix. I used to have frequent headaches before taking magnesium. Highly recommended.

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

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.

This Magnesium Citrate doesn't mix well with water. It stays at the bottom which makes it hard to drink.
Still being tested

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. 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.

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."

Well priced product but there are more absorbable forms such as Magnesium Glycinate. Until I find a better supplement this will be my main choice.
