  • Mixability

Magnesium Citrate is a chemical cross between Citric Acid and Magnesium Carbonate. It is an easily absorbed kind of Magnesium which happens to be one of the most important minerals in the body, thus making Magnesium Citrate a great way for the body to replenish low levels of Magnesium. Since Magnesium is needed for at least three hundred different bodily reactions to take place, it is quite necessary to maintain high levels of it.


Serving Size & Timing

It is recommended that Magnesium Citrate be consumed in serving sizes of 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp once per day. It should be mixed with a liquid beforehand. In milligrams, a serving of 1/2 tsp is equal to about 1662mg while a full teaspoon is equal to about 3324mg.

It is recommended by the FDA that Magnesium not be taken in excess of 400mg per day. Since the actual Magnesium content in Magnesium Citrate only amounts to about 15%, this means that for a serving of 1tsp or 3324mg, the amount of Magnesium present would be 500mg altogether. Therefore, it is best to take a little bit less than that if you wish to stick within the FDA guidelines. 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, no adverse side effects usually come along with Magnesium based supplements. In addition to making sure that the Magnesium is better absorbed though, it is best to take Calcium along with Magnesium in order to prevent any kind of gastrointestinal discomfort that might be associated with the Magnesium.

Taking more than the recommended dose of Magnesium may result in diarrhea. Also, if taking too much Magnesium, this can result in the same side effects that might have taken place if suffering from Magnesium deficiency. These include diarrhea, loss of appetite, and 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.

How to Mix Magnesium Citrate

There are some misconceptions associated with the solubility of Magnesium Citrate. Even though when you mix Magnesium Citrate with water, it usually forms a cloud which eventually settles on the bottom of the glass, it is not entirely insoluble. If the water has a reasonably high temperature and a reasonably high acidity level too, the chances that the Magnesium Citrate will dissolve will be much greater.

To make sure that the Magnesium Citrate is dissolved correctly, it is best to add both hot water as well as lemon or lime juice to the Magnesium Citrate powder. If you wish, you may also add a sweetener to cover up for the tartness of the lemon. As long as the water is heated to a temperature above 159 degrees Fahrenheit, the Magnesium Citrate will be dissolved well in the water leaving a clear glass rather than a cloudy one.

Once finished mixing, this supplement should be stored in an area that is free from light, heat, and moisture in order for it to retain its potency.

The exact instructions for preparation including measurements are as follows:

Measure out about 1662mg (1/2 tsp) Magnesium Citrate. Then add the juice of half of a lemon or lime, this means only squeeze the juice out of one part of a lemon that has been cut in two. Add 8oz of hot water or one small cup if you do not have an accurate measuring device and then stir. This stirring should only last 30 to 60 seconds. The next step is to add sugar, however this is optional. Then bring this solution to a cool by placing it in a refrigerator or by putting ice cubes or cold water in it. The ice cubes and cold water should bring the final solution to about 12 fl oz water total. Even though the water has been diluted by the end, this should not dilute the effectiveness of the Magnesium solution. It will still be just as strong and the added Calcium will allow the body to absorb the Magnesium much more easily while experiencing minimal negative side effects along with it.

Customer Reviews

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 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:
