    It wasn't worth it to me

    I tried this Magnesium Supplement by Garden of Life. I was excited because I very recently tried a different drink of the same type from another brand and was happy with results. What stood out to me with this one is that it appears to have the same ingredients but also added good gut health probiotics. I liked that I was sent an entire container rather than just a one day sample. This gave me time to actually give it a fair trial. I was interested in this product because I have a hard time sleeping most nights, muscle aches many times after a work out and pro biotics would hopefully be helpful to my gut health issues. The taste was quite medicinal and sour (Raspberry Lemon) so even mixed with a citrus juice the after taste was not pleasant to me, but I drank it quickly and just chased with a small amount of juice to help with that. For some reason I didn't feel like I got the calming effects that help you sleep like I did with the other brand even though they have the same amount of Magnesium. I have not found much relief to restless leg or sore muscles either unfortunately. As for the gut health I noticed I was taking a lot more trips to the washroom within the 24 hours post use, but not every time, but going was easier., maybe too easy. The directions for use state to put 1 teaspoon of the powder in 1 cup of room temperature water and stir to dissolve; over and over I tried this increasing the temp of the water on each use until I was using hot water and it does not dissolve completely. I had multiple chunks of powder that I had to break up with a spoon. A search of online shopping for this product and container size seems to range between $30.-40.00 average. I am just not sure I could recommend paying this for this product based on the results of my trial alone.

    It works!

    I was so happy to receive this item, having a toddler and the kind of work I'm, stress occurs daily and I'm an absolute night owl,so getting this product and being able to try it out was simply amazing. I have been much more relaxed, my muscles don't feel as tense and I'm definitely sleeping better. Oh and I absolutely love the flavour and there's no horrible aftertaste. Absolutely recommend. #trynatural #gotitfree

    Be cautious when using 'natural' products and supplements

    Full disclosure I received this product free to try, and it was quite a large amount that lasted quite some time. The raspberry lemon flavour has a nice 'zing' to it, and when prepared, it tastes similar to a carbonated lemonade...except, that with its added ingredients it actually becomes quite thick and unpleasant if you add too much. I am not magnesium deficient, but I will caution you about not only too little magnesium, but also overingestion, which can cause serious health consequences. Over the course of about a month or so, I didn't notice a significant difference in the touted benefits. The price of the product is also quite costly. Overall, if you are not known to be actually deficienct (based on medical tests), I would be hesitant to recommend supplementation unnecesarily. Keep in mind that although these products are touted as being 'safe' and 'natural,' they are not regulated by Health Canada.

    Great product!

    I take magnesium capsules twice daily but now only once as I drink this in the morning. This magnesium powder dissolves easily and tastes really good. I tried the Lemon Raspberry flavour.

    Garden of Life Magnesium

    Wow! This is a great product. I absolutely love the taste. Super convenient and easy to prepare. Just add water, wait for it to fizz up, sip and enjoy. For someone with absorption issues, this is a great way for me to balance and maintain my Magnesium.
