Mg Bisglycinate - excellent value

Great results. Potent effective. My sis and others with Parkinson’s note great improvement in muscle release.

Vegan alternative

It has too much glucosamine compared with the ones that the doctor prescribed me but is is a good vegan alternative to any other brands. I will keep buying it.

It's really hard to take it, because of the taste. Disappointed.

Really good product, absorbs well when taken with enough water. Perfect.

This is the most disappointing magnesium bisglycinate I have tried to date. It is completely unpalatable for me.

Taste is terrible. Needs to be hidden in something else

Tastes awful

I bought this to add to electrolyte solution for fasting. Sorry, but hated the taste. Not going to keep using it

Magnesium Bis glycinate

I think your product is ok, but it gave me Diarrhea so I had to stop taking it after 1 week. I stopped taking it because I had no idea of what to do about it

Love It!!

Not only it helped me with GOOD NIGHT SLEEP, but it also turned very hardened muscle into SOFT!!

Tastes like fish, but only at first sip

I was apprehensive about tasting this product. It dissolves in water quite easily, and tastes neutral when you take the first sip. But then there is an unmistakable fishy aftertaste. I was horrified, wondering how to drink the whole glass of squeezed fish juice. Then it started tasting like raw eggs, which was a vast improvement.

Effective and mild on the stomach

I am a repeat buyer. Good for better sleep and general wellbeing.

Best Magnesium, awful taste.

I've tried other Mag formulations and this one is the most stable for my guts. Tastes pretty awful. I drink home made grass fed beef or organic chicken bone broth every day as well so do get plenty of glycine. Don't need the Mag Threonate type, I include Taurine with this Mag Bisgycinate at the same time on an empty stomach to provide the same mental relax. I have a little raw honey to distract the taste after it.

Taste is not very nice.

This product tastes AWFUL! If you're looking for something easy to drink, I wouldn't recommend this one.

The taste is really not good but this doesn't mean that the product is not good !

Taste is not so great, but it works very good.

Ok, as said by others the taste is not so great. Personally I don't have problems with that, because it helps me very much with my migraine attacks. Since I use it, 2 big teaspoons per day, I have very less migraine. Really happy with the product.

Great for restful sleep

As a night-time magnesium supplement I rely on Now's magnesium bisglycinate for a restful night's sleep and maintaining cramp-free rest. I find that it is highly dissolvable , reasonably palatable, but overall highly effective.

Relief from FM insomnia!

I was skeptical because everyone was complaining about the flavor. Well, I wanted to save some money and avoid fillers. The first sip is unique but it wasn't so atrocious. I even give it to my 5 yr old in juice and she can't hardly tell. It was the key to sleep for me as a FM patient. It doesn't do much for muscle cramps so I'm adding malic acid but it does take a LOT of the edge off the pain. I realize my body is requiring less and less as I keep taking it and you'll know cause you'll get the runs. Mixes easily in warm water and I take 1 teaspoon shared up over the course of a day and I give my 5 yr old 1/4 teaspoon in 100 ml of juice at bedtime. She sleeps and stays asleep and is a lot less anxious at school.

Great Product!

A great product! Dissolves fast. Not the best tasting but it is acceptable. Ivan

Great form of magnesium

Sure it tastes pretty yuck but it works for us! Helps with restless legs, cramps of all kinds, headaches, PMS. Add some lemon juice to the mix and it’s fine :)

Posted by on August 26 2019
Good product

Much better than Magnesium Citrate (absorption and no loose stools) but taste is awful.

Posted by on August 21 2019
The Taste Isn’t Nice, Yet Very Dominant ...

Placed only 2tsp in a large smoothie and the taste is so strong and somewhat, unfortunately unpleasant.

Posted by on August 14 2019
yep, awesome

take it before bedtime in a little bit of water, keeps you regular and helps you relax and sleep

awful taste

The taste is revolting, had to throw away after one dose

Posted by on March 03 2019
I think it works quite well but feel mildly traumatised by taste so don't take as often as directed. i guess you could take with juice .

maybe the most revolting tasting supplement ever. tastes sulphurous with a lingering after taste of trough lolly. I am veteran of gross tasting medicines but this wins hands down for worst ever flavour

Water tastes amazing with this

I've added 1/4 teaspoon of Magnesium Bisglycinate Powder in about 1 liter of water and it tastes amazing to me. I read how other people complain about the taste. If your body doesn't like the taste, it's because it DOES NOT NEED this form of magnesium, so try a different form, or try a different element. Maybe you need Potassium more, or maybe you need Boron, or maybe you don't have enough HCL which is why you can not absorb Magnesium. For example I can not stand Magnesium Sulfate, and the more I take it, the more leg crams I have as well. This one I like, and I feel good with it as well. PS: I read how "4% glycine supplementation caused a 65.7% reduction in caries development". So maybe that's why my body thinks it likes it. Who knows.

Good enough

Best magnesium out there, it's my second order of this product. Probably will be better if there is capsule form.

Bad taste

Could not get passed the taste.

Posted by on November 21 2018
Good stuff.

Good deal for the price. If you're after effective Magnesium Bisglycinate Powder this is the best Ive tried, and I do recommend this product. I don't need more than 1/2 of teaspoon every 2 or 3 days.

Not great taste

I don`t think I`d have ordered this product if I knew how much I would dislike the taste. I have no idea re the effect. I try to take it in the evening or before bed, I am never sure what makes me have a more relaxed/tense body...Sorry can`t help too much

Posted by on April 26 2018
i'm sleeping better and with no cramps

I take two tsp a day and have seen a dramatic improvement in muscle cramps that used to hit me at night, and in length of sleep.

Posted by on February 20 2018
Inedible in Water

I bought this because I was looking for a Magnesium Bisglycinate powder. I ignored the other reviews that commented on the taste because I figured, how bad could it possibly be? Maybe they were being overly sensitive. They were NOT. Upon mixing a tsp of the powder with 8 oz of water, I tried drinking it, and the taste is HORRIFFIC. No joke. It's completely inedible in water. I can't describe in words what it tastes like, but suffice to say, I would throw up if I had to drink the whole thing. I'm not a juice drinker, but I would imagine that if it was mixed in juice, it would probably be tolerable. NOW Foods really needs to flavour this.

Great for relaxation and against muscle cramps

I'm using Magnesium Bisglycinate Powder from Now Foods since more that one year now. I'm really confident with this product, as it helps me relax. I take it before I go to bed and this helps me sleep ans restore better. I also use it right before and after sports/training and i have no muscle cramps anymore. Great! Magnesium Bisglycinate does also a great job against menstruation cramps. When cramps occur, I take magnesium every two hours and this way I stay pain-free. I have used other forms of magnesium before (magnesium citrate), but I noticed no effect. With Magnesium Bisglycinate, I feel it directly. Ánd I feel it, when i forget to take it after a training... So I would definitely recommend this product!

It's helped me a lot!

Posted by on March 06 2017

I had spent MONTHS almost without sleep because coming off medicines. I had bought many forms of magnesium and spent a lot of money on all kinds of stuff that were supposed to help with sleep. Finally I found this formula. My sleep became normal instantly and now 8 weeks since starting this my sleep is now normal . This has been a TOTAL LIFESAVER. I wake up refreshed. I thank god and would like others to know.

One of the best forms of Mg

Easy to use. It is true, the taste is little bit awful :-) but I got used. Maybe it is good idea to use with pottasium together.

Posted by on November 08 2016
Easy to use, great value.

I have reordered this a couple of times now. It's great value and easy to mix up/dissolve. It has a strange taste. My partner likes the taste but I just find it weird. We have it before bedtime.

Posted by on November 03 2016

works better for me to relax the muscles than magnesiumcitrate. taste is awful, I now fill two of the largest capsules ( from now) that is about the same amount as a teaspoon. take them with a cup of herbal brew. It's not easy to fill the capsules, the powder is a bit sticky, but still this is a very good product

Posted by on August 16 2016
a new form of mag for me

I dont know how good this is asorbjng better for me.

Posted by on July 01 2016
Very good.

Gives me a restful sleep and calms my sore muscles. If you can tolerate or mask the bad taste get this and you will not regret it.

Good value for money, uses TRAACS, no fillers

This is a really good product from Now Foods. I fill empty gelatine capsules with approx 300mg of Magnesium Bisgylcinate powder, take one a day before bed. This makes it more economical than buying pre-capped products and I like the fact it has no fillers. It has really helped with my sleeping and calming my anxiety. Magnesium glycinate is magnesium attached to a glycine molecule. The combination of the two is not only calming but is a very good form for absorption. Magnesium helps lower cortisol the stress hormone which can cause anxiety and can increase storage of fat around the middle of the body. This product is made using the Albion TRAACS system which is a patented technology which ensures excellent chelates of minerals with amino acids, (in this case magnesium with glycine). This product also has no fillers and the only other added ingredient is Citric Acid (presumably to improve stomach acid for breakdown of the product). Highly recommended.

Magnesium Bisglycinate

A very good product .good on the stomach.taken with water only YUK! Has to be mixed with a cordial or a juice to smother the really bad taste. I am put off somewhat when mixed with vegetable juice or cordial at the major colour change of the drink. still looking for a good mixture that doesnt change colour and has a good or fair taste.

I think this is a great form of magnesium. I am trying to move aay from tablets and use this with a small amount of pottasium amd vit c.

Posted by on February 18 2016
This is our favorite magnesium

We like this quality very much. Does not affect the function of the stomach and really relaxes muscles and insures restful night.

Works well, bad taste

It took me a couple of weeks to really get used to the taste, I thought it tasted like a mix between feces and vomit. However, it works great, at least as well as other similar products (I used some Mg. glycinate in capsule form before, form other brand). No obvious stomach discomfort, even as I take it a few hours after my last daily meal, but one might want to eat some small thing along with it if one does notice some discomfort. I take this a couple of hours before bed, together with a recent addition of extra l-lysine and glycine powder (rather calming amino acids, that also are rather sweet so they do cover up some taste), in a small amount of water, stir and swallow quickly. About 3-5 grams of this powder on its own produces a noticeable sedation for me. It does dissolve rather well, but sometimes some turns into sticky strands.

Relajante de los nervios musculares

Es efectivo, solo que el sabor es un poco desagradable si solo se mezcla con agua, si se mezcla con zumo para enmascarar el sabor es perfecta. Además es bastante efectiva como relajante muscular y ayuda a conciliar el sueño.

Неприятный вкус

Не смогла пить в порошке - вкус очень специфический, как разведенное в воде большое количество соды. Хочу заказать пустые капсулы и использовать в них, так как форма магния очень хорошая и хочется ее использовать.

На вкус отвратителен

Пить не возможно, так и не смогла привыкнуть, вкус просто ужасный!

Самое сильное отравление

Так долго ждала свои витаминчики ) думала все как в отзывах наладиться сон и помогу организму ! Но что я получила в итоге отравление , мне не зашел вообще ) порция магния = рвота и температура , это ужасно мне так плохо никогда не было даже не знаю в чем причина ! Даже боюсь кому то отдать теперь или предложить ,

лучший магний

Покупала, т.к. были проблемы со сном. Читала в отзывах о противном вкусе, но не такой уж он и противный. Зато эффективность очень хорошая. Потерпеть секундочку раз в день и наслаждаться налаженной работой организма, думаю это не большая цена за его эффективность. правда я приспособилась к его приему не сразу. Много где читала, что магний надо употреблять перед сном. Попробовала несколько раз, но получалось так, что меня начинало клонить ко сну, но если я сразу спать не легла, а пошла почистить зубы или еще нужно было что-то сделать, то через 5 минут желание спать пропадало и я опять долго не могла заснуть. уже думала, что зря потратила деньги. но решила попробовать пить его с утра. Стала разводить его утром вместе с витамином С и калием и вуаля. С утра прилив сил и бодрости, а к вечеру естественная и не проходящая через 5 минут тяга ко сну. Когда этот магний закончился, решила попробовать цитрат магния этой же фирмы. мне говорили, что он должен быть эффективней, и его уж точно надо принимать перед сном, но... я его принимала за час до сна, сон приходит, но очень медленно, как будто с большим запозданием и в итоге я вставала утром с трудом и вся разбитая, будто действие магния еще не закончилось и мне надо еще спать, но я не могу, надо на работу. Пробовала его по совету доктора распределить маленькими порциями на весь день, но тогда мне после обеда очень хотелось спать и я ничего тогда не могу делать, голова в тумане. Может конечно нужно принимать цитрат магния часов за 5 до сна, но как-то устала я экспериментировать. Вобщем заказала опять бисглицинат, мне он действительно понравился!

На вкус что-то напоминающее соду, сырое яйцо. Не такой ужасный, как сдесь описывают, легко привыкла. Принимала перед сном, хорошо успокаивает, легче уснуть. Днем тоже чувствую себя более спокойной, обычно бесящие ситуации и личности не выводят из себя. Очень мягко действует, побочек не заметила. Рекомендую. Хорошо принимать с витамин В6 в табл. или уколах. Лучше действует.

UNMÖGLICH runterzukriegen, widerlicher Geschmack

ich bin absolut schmerzfrei, was den geschmack diverser nem`s betrifft, wenn sie wirksam sind. der geschmack von diesem puver, selbstverständlich im wasser gelöst, ist dermassen widerlich, dass es kaum möglich ist, runterschlucken. auch saft etc schaffen keine abhilfe. löst sich gut, jedoch habe ich keine überwältigenden ergebnisse verzeichnen können. die dose steht nun nutzlos rum und ich werde lieber etwas in tabletten oder kapselform bestellen.

Отвратительный Вкус

Не уверена насчёт действия препарата. Лично я не вижу разницу по спокойствию, сну и т.д. Скорее даже хуже стало, но не связываю это с препаратом. Был стресс на работе. Возможно именно благодаря магнию я вообще засыпала в те дни. Не могу сказать. А вот вкус просто невозможный, приторно-горько-сладкий. Пить только с закрытым носом и сразу запивать чистой водой. Так что если у вас есть альтернативы, то лучше подумайте, прежде чем покупать именно этот препарат.

Posted by on July 27 2019

Из всех видов магния для меня этот оказался лучшим. Спокойна, как слон, засыпю быстро, ночью не просыпаюсь, после ранней кошачьей побудки( часиков в5), могу заснуть снова. Для меня, с моими пожизненными поблемами со сном ( мне, увы, 61 год ), это просто счастье..НО! пить это можно только, как пьют чистый спирт))) выдох, пьёшь, запиваешь-закусываешь, вдох)) иначе НЕВОЗМОЖНО!))

Posted by on May 27 2019
вкус не подошел

насколько я терпима ко вкусам,этот превзошел всё мое терпение, Порошок разводится в воде, я просто не могу заставить себя это пить, поэтому заказала магний в таблетках Doktors best, да ещё в хелатной форме, там вкус похожий, но можно быстро проглотить, хотя и не без труда, так как таблетки крупные

Отлично Помогает Заснуть

Порошок разводится водой, хорошо растворяется. На вкус как пищевая сода. Первые дни это конечно кажется ужасным. Но потом привыкаешь. Пью один раз в день с едой перед сном. Через час-три обычно ложусь спать. И прекрасно засыпаю. Не проваливаюсь в глубокий сон. А легко расслабляюсь и отключаюсь. Прекратились мышечные судороги т.н. синдром беспокойных ног. Головные боли стали очень редкими. Но помимо магния я пью еще омегу, цинк, коэнзимQ10, витамин Д. Так что думаю тут все в комплексе влияет. Но вот легкое засыпание и отсутствие судорог это точно спасибо магнию

Posted by on June 12 2017
It tastes horrible

When I was reading the reviews the first time, I was like, the flavour can't be that bad right? Let's give it a try, okay, the flavour IS HORRIBLE NOT, THE NEXT. It's the most awful things that I have never taste, it tastes like rotten fish. I gave it 3 stars because it really makes me rest better and feel better but I had to buy empty capsules to put the magnesium in it, because if not I would not be able to take it, I almost puke with it.

Magnésium sans effet laxatif

J'ai acheté ce produit pour mon mari qui ne supporte pas le magnésium. Celui-ci lui convient. Une étoile en moins: le dosage est difficile à faire sans une dosette adaptée. Il m'a fallu mesurer avec des dosettes en ma possession mais c'est loin d'être précis. Or, avec la crainte de l'effet laxatif, j'ai besoin d'un dosage précis.

Posted by on February 16 2017
Вкус неприятен

В виде порошка купила из соображений экономии, представленная форма очень хорошо усваивается и не раздражает желудок, однако вкус пренеприятен. Больше не закажу, лучше уж в таблетках или капсулах.
