    Finally a solution to my horrible leg cramps! I was getting nightly leg cramps that started at my ankle and went up into my inner thigh. The pain was so bad it actually made me vomit. Much worse than calf cramps. I tried all the usual remedies and nothing worked. A little research suggested I might need more magnesium even though I eat a variety of high-magnesium foods. It worked right away! And my doctor approves.

    I take one in the morning with breakfast and another with dinner. I have a VERY hard time swallowing pills, so I was concerned with the size of the pill. But it's sort of flat and I've discovered a way to make it easier. The simple remedy is to take your Slow-Mag with a bite of food. Chew a mouthful of food, pop in the pill, and it goes right down. (I don't chew the Slow-Mag.)

    I have absolutely no stomach discomfort, and I never have cramps anymore as long as I remember to take my Slow-Mag supplement.

    The reviews have indicated that this is a great product! I felt as though I wasted my money. I could not swallow this product. It was a flat and wide tablet. If you have any difficulties swallowing, you may not want to try this (contrary to what others have written).

        Comments about Slow-Mag Magnesium Chloride With Calcium, Tablets, 60 ea:

        Magnesium has SO many health benefits - from heart health to muscle function to helping with constipation problems, especially if you take a calcium supplement which can CAUSE that problem. I have fewer leg cramps and magnesium actually has been shown to relax & help you sleep better - so I've read, anyway. This is magnesium CHLORIDE, which is absorbed MUCH more readily than most of the magnesium supplements on the shelf - most of them are magnesium citrate, which does not absorb easily at all.

            As I am on a liquid diet after jaw surgery , I must use something that will dissolve. Recommended by my cardiologist for my arrythmia and leg cramps.
            Works well so far -4 months.

              My doctor wants me to take magnesium. I've heard reviews that slow-mag is the best absorbed. I'm perfectly satisfied with this product and will continue to use it.

                  Comments about Slow-Mag Magnesium Chloride With Calcium, Tablets, 60 ea:

                  I am a 52 yr old woman. My chiropractor recommended taking magnesium to help with muscle cramps in my legs and feet. I tried several brands, but couldn't tolerate the common side effect of diarrhea (magnesium sulfate is also used as a laxative). SlowMag (magnesium chloride) has been much easier to tolerate. I take one tablet twice a day, and it really helps to prevent cramps in my feet and legs. It also makes a difference in how often and how severely I experience restless legs. At first, I took an anti-diarreal tablet with each dose, but my body adjusted over a couple of months, and I no longer need to do that. I've also noted that I have fewer premature ventricular contractions (irregular heart beat) since taking SlowMag.
                  I work with pregnant women, and now recommend SlowMag to help with both the constipation and cramps that so many pregnant ladies suffer with at the end of pregnancy.

                  Comments about Slow-Mag Magnesium Chloride With Calcium, Tablets, 60 ea:

                  This product prevents me from feeling crampy in my body, especially at night. Woke up with a charly horse and it didn't fully go away the next morning. I took two of these tablets and my whole body began to melt to relaxation. I have taken many cal/mag supplements before with no effect and this must be the right form my body needs. I suspect it is very absorbable. I tried chelated minerals and also that coral calcium and found I was sensitive to calcium citrate. Citrus sensitivity. In the past I suffered really bad from CFS and found relief in supplement and diet changes as well as staying away from chemicals. This was a good find!

                  My husband complained about cramping in his hips and thighs at work. He began taking it and has no problem and feels so much better too! Now we both take it but it cost a bit too much I think. Inside the box is a recommendation on what our body needs daily of calcium and magnesium. And one dose really isn't enough. :(

                  Also, this agrees with my IBS. Very happy!

                    After being bothered with hand and foot cramps these magnesium tablets
                    have been wonderful. If I skip them for a few days the cramps return.
