Magnesium is one of those hard-working minerals that simply doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It plays a key role in over 800 different chemical reactions in the body and is involved in everything from DNA synthesis, energy production and metabolism, to muscle strength, nerve function, heart rate regulation and bone building. Magnesium is also an active ingredient in alleviating constipation. That’s one busy mineral.
Unfortunately, magnesium deficiency is extremely common. Medications like antibiotics, corticosteroids, diuretics and contraceptives hinder our ability to absorb magnesium. Refining and processing strip magnesium from our food. Even agricultural soil and water are being depleted of magnesium. It is no wonder that 68% of adults have trouble getting enough from their diets.

Been using these for about 3 weeks now and they seem to be working very well. I bought them because I wanted a natural solution for insomnia and restless legs as the medication I was prescribed had very unwanted side effects. I take 2 capsules which is double the recommended dose on the bottle, but I read the recommended dose for RLS is around 400mg. So far I've slept very well with it and no unwanted effects. The bisglycinate formulation definitely works much better than other forms of magnesium I've tried such as oxide and citrate.
Super service of my international order. I actively search for a quality product with a good elemental magnesium content and have found I can get that at Natures Source.
I have had leg cramps for many years. My doctor recommended magnesium supplements. I have tried other brands which did seem to help, but I did notice a more pronounced effect with this brand. I also really like that it is available in smaller doses of 200mg which can be taken throughout the day.
And so far so good. Helps muscles after workout.
