Magnesium Citrate Powder
Magnesium Citrate is a chemical cross between Citric Acid and Magnesium Carbonate. Since Magnesium is needed for at least 300 different bodily reactions to take place, it is quite necessary to maintain high levels of it.
Health Benefits Provided By Magnesium Citrate
Magnesium assists in the body’s ability to make use of glucose and is important in the process of transferring energy throughout the body. It keeps the heart healthy by dilating the arteries and blood vessels; without Magnesium, these vessels may begin to shrink and cause reduced blood flow. Magnesium also maintains oral health and immune system operation.
As it turns out, Magnesium is a necessary component for all cells in the body to function normally. It also helps keep bones strong and durable and also establishes the normal function of muscles and nerves. Without Magnesium, it would be almost impossible to synthesize or metabolize proteins and energy correctly.
Serving Size & Timing
It is recommended that Magnesium Citrate be consumed in serving sizes of 1662 (1/2 tsp) to 3324mg (1 tsp) once per day. It should be mixed with a liquid beforehand.
It is recommended by the FDA that Magnesium not be taken in excess of 400 mg per day. Since the actual Magnesium content in Magnesium Citrate only amounts to about 15%, this means that for a serving of 1 tsp, this supplement contains 500mg Magnesium. Since Magnesium should be taken in a ratio of 1:2 with Calcium for the desired effects to truly take place, it is also best to take a supplement of Calcium equal to twice the amount of Magnesium you are taking as long as this amount is still safely within the daily recommendations for both.

MAGNESIUM CITRATE SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered, to this supplement is safe to consume. Taking too much, however, may result in diarrhea and side effects such as indigestion, loss of appetite, weakness of muscles, low blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, respiratory issues and nausea.
Those who have experienced kidney problems in the past and those who are taking supplements or other products which already have high Magnesium content should speak with a medical professional before taking this supplement.
There are a few different groups of people that are at a higher risk for suffering Magnesium deficiency. This list includes the elderly, people who use diuretics excessively and diabetics. Women who take pill-form contraception are also at risk. Since maintaining a Magnesium-rich diet can be difficult, supplementation is often ideal for many individuals. It has also been shown that the efficiency of Magnesium supplementation increases when taken in tandem with Calcium. For best results, it is recommended that Magnesium be consumed at a ratio of 1:2 with Calcium.
If combined with a liquid high in acidic content such as lemonade or orange juice, this solution is highly soluble. It is less so in water. The product should be stored in an area that is free from light, heat and moisture in order to maintain its effectiveness and overall potency.
Measure out about 1662mg (1/2 tsp) Magnesium Citrate. Then add the juice of half of a lemon or lime. Add 8oz of hot water or one small cup if you do not have an accurate measuring device and then stir for 30-60 seconds. The next step is to add sugar; however, this is optional. Bring this solution to a cool by placing it in a refrigerator or by mixing with ice cubes. This should not dilute the effectiveness of the Magnesium solution.
I got my package last evening and before bed time took my first 1/2 ts of Magnesium. I had the best rest i have had for a very long time. my body became completely relaxed and i could not do anything but fall asleep. Also around 2 am as i am sleeping i became aware of an invigorating wonderful sensation of energy flow throughout my body so I am guessing its the results of good relaxation that lead to deep sleep where repair and healing took place and the circulation of blood and energy increased. This supplement is definitely pure. I am very pleased and will recommend it to anyone.

The subject line says it all! I only recently realized I was only getting 26% of my daily requirement of magnesium! Why didn't I know? I guess I thought doctors were supposed to tell us such things; but, upon reflection, I believe it is truly up to each of us to investigate and learn these things ourselves.
Following my Bariatric Surgery over 10 years ago, the doctors cautioned me about the absolute need to take Calcium Citrate because it would be more bioavailable for my body; but, never, ever, ever, did any doctor ever tell me about the crucial need for magnesium, or even that I would need to separate my taking my thyroid medication from any form of magnesium or iron, by 4 hours before my medication and 4 hours after my medication. If you don't separate the eating of iron or magnesium by these times, then, your medication is crippled, which means the doctors will prescribe a higher dosage. Right?
I only found that out 2 1/2 months ago, so I have been religiously setting my alarm for 4:00 a.m. to take my thyroid pill, going back to bed and sleeping for another 4 hours. Then, I get to eat. Yeah.
I recently discovered BulkSupplements.com and happily ordered Magnesium Citrate and Calcium Citrate, 1 k of each. I commenced about a month ago taking 1 tsp. of Calcium Citrate and 1 tsp. of Magnesium Citrate. I didn't notice any difference for several days, but then, my tongue started salivating with the eating or drinking of ... anything.
Then, 6-17-2015 I added 1/4 teaspoon of Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside (a product BulkSupplements.com wants me to review, and I'll do that), to my morning 1:1 Calcium Citrate/Magnesium Citrate combo. Immediately, my tongue commenced really letting me know it liked what was passing over it. So, I really, really know my body is loving what I am doing.
What a pleasurable experience! Here I am pushing 80 (not quite there), and I never realized my tongue could actually taste, much less salivate. I guess it has always had the ability to sense something, otherwise, I doubt if I would have been addicted to sugars for many years; but, I never knew my tongue could salivate because it never did.
Why do I take 1:1 Calcium Citrate to Magnesium Citrate in place of 2:1 of these two products? First, because of my Bariatric Surgery, and my 50% malabsorption, I must double the dosage of ... everything. Second, our Lord told me to take this specific 1:1 combination. Who am I to argue?
Thanks, BulkSupplements.com for great products, excellent delivery, great packaging, etc.

I suffer from restless leg syndrome and put off taking meds. After talking to a friend of mine I decided to try Magnesium CItrate.......all I can say is wow. My restlessness is gone and I sleep wonderfully. I now enter REM sleep and feel very rested when I wake up. Thanks Bulk Supplements for having the product available for me.

This supplement promotes calmness and helps you relax. My sisters all reported an improvement in muscle soreness as well. A little gritty when mixed into water, so adding stevia and lemon juice helps. Just remember to drink all the grit, because you need it!

I had ordered Magnesium citrate initially to help with this thumping sound in my ear. I researched the benefits and found that it is an important supplement wr don't get enough of. Aid in sleep is an area I could use it in also.

I found this way of taking magnesium easy and a great way to get it right into my system, no hard tablet or capsule for my stomach to have to break down. Thanks bulk supplements oh yes the price is great too!!

Magnesium citrate is one of those minerals that everyone should supplement. We're all pretty deficient in magnesium. Hundreds of processes in the human body require magnesium. The sleep benefits are subtle but apparent.
I ordered 1kg because the value was too good considering the 300 servings at recommended dosage. It came in the mail a couple days after ordering. I'll definitely be continue to supplement magnesium for the rest of my life and I'll get it from BulkSupplements as long as they're around.

After returning a box of vitamins and minerals from a large internet company because of added ingredients which studies now show can be detrimental (magnesium stearate, cellulose aka wood pulp and other dubious additives) . I found Bulk Supplements offering vitamins and minerals that are clean. I spent days searching thru the vitamin and mineral offerings on other web sites and in stores and found even the pricey brands contained other dubious ingredients !
The magnesium citrate before bed has helped me sleep sound and relaxed a big improvement for me. And its clean with no added fillers.
You can pay twice as much in a health food store for similar products.
I am very happy with my purchase, it arrived very fast as well.

This is the best thing to take for the muscle cramps. I wish I knew it years ago when I played tennis very often. It was impossible to enyoy the sport that I liked but bothered by the painful cramps. This Magnesium Citrate is fast acting, it works within a few hours after taking. I'll take it everyday from now on.

Two thumbs up for fast delivery. After receiving my MC I immediately mixed MC with distilled water since I was experiencing lower and upper back spasms. On the second day total relief! Of course I mixed in ascorbic acid with MC as well. Definitely, will purchase more MC.

This is my second order of mag citrate. It works wonders for my otherwise horrendous leg and foot muscle cramps. If I skip it for a few days the night cramps start to creep up again. The cramps themselves remind me to take the mag....so I do! Otherwise I may end up with a bad episode.
I like a product called True Lemon, it a citrus drink purchased elsewhere. I mix it with the mag citrate and it's pleasant enough tasting. Love the results!

No taste and mixes great!

I feel so calm and relaxed after taking this before bed and I wake up with more energy. This causes no bowel issues for me like other magnesium supplements. Make sure you mix it with hot, acidic water to make sure it dissolves completely! As always, Bulk Supplements delivers quality on every level! :D

Magnesium is one of the most important nutrients, and next to vitamin D, the nutrient people are most likely deficient in. Since magnesium is involved in hundreds of processes in the human body, those that are deficient (anyone that consumes a western diet) should definitely supplement with magnesium citrate.
Bulksupplements' magnesium citrate is odorless, flavorless, and mixes well with water. Consume at night to relax your muscles and promote restful sleep. To learn more about magnesium go here:
