Swisse magnesium tablets

published

Started taking this for night muscle cramps.
Works well however the tablets are massive and have to break in half to swallow.
Experienced some dizziness while taking this in conjunction with Swisse ultiboost mood tablets.

Excellent

published

I have chronic autoimmune issues eg. fatigue, muscle stiffness, constipation, depression. It wasn’t until I stopped taking the high strength magnesium powder that I realised how much it had helped. It’s not a perfect panacea, but I find it certainly eases the above problems. I’ve stopped-started it more than once to make sure I wasn’t imagining the health benefits, but each time I resumed, I felt noticeably more comfortable.

Purchased at Wizard Pharmacy .

Big tablets do the job

published

Taken for sleep. I take one magnesium 15 mins before bed and it brings on a minor sense of sleepiness for about half an hour. It works, but no better than other brands. As the tablets are uncomfortably big and hard to swallow, I will switch to another brand for magnesium as these do not work any better or worse than other brands, which id hoped they would. Causes minor sleepiness.

Purchased in March 2019 at Coles Supermarkets.

Complete waste of money!

published

I bought the Swisse Magnesium tablets for leg cramps, the cramps don't seem to have lessened but I have had adverse reactions to them as the tablets are making me feel very lethargic and I want to sleep all day. The tablets do NOT assist my energy production as claimed! ...
I also have Diabetes 2 and have medication that keeps it under control.
I am not going to take these tablets anymore. The remaining Swisse Magnesium tablets are going to be flushed down the toilet. Complete waste of money!

So gritty I felt like I'd been to the beach

published

I've never come across a product designed for ingestion with such poor quality as this. When prepared, the glass bottom is covered with sand-like grit which didn't dissolve. The grit gets in your teeth and you feel like you've had sand kicked in your face. Should it be like this? It doesn't feel like it should as all other powdered preparations I've had have never had this.

Worst magnesium I have ever purchased

published

I wish I had read the other reviews prior to purchasing this product. According to the container it is " a premium quality powder formula"? This powder does not dissolve and leaves a heavy sand-like sediment in the bottom of the glass. You end up with a mouthful of grit, very unpleasant feeling. I contacted Swiss but have not heard back yet. Maybe it is a bad batch ? This product is so bad/misleading that I think the customers should get a refund.

Too big

published

Swisse Magnesium tablets too big to easily swallow.
If broken in half, there is a very rough edge which could damage the throat.
I will buy a different brand in future.

Worst magnesium I’ve ever purchased

published

I have tried many brands of magnesium powder in the past, however Swisse Magnesium powder is by far the worst I have ever had. It does not dissolve in water at all and leaves a heavy sand-like sediment at the bottom of the glass that’s impossible to drink. Very disappointed with this product.

Is this powder really meant to be taken orally?

published

This powder does not dissolve, even in hot water.
Most of it remains at the bottom of the cup and is like ingesting glass or sand.
I would like a comment from the suppliers.

Swisse Magnesium + Ultraboost

published

The mixture produced is indeed very grainy. It's also fizzy and tastes unpleasant. It is totally unacceptable. Shall I return it and get my money back? I always have confidence in Australian products but might change my mind now.

Not Impressed

published

Product is grainy doesn't mix well. Directions say mix 2 teaspoons in water etc once mixed you are left with about 2 teaspoons of grains in the bottom of the glass. I have felt no benefits from this product, I do get benefits from BioCeuticals Magnesium powder. Also a rip-off a large container 180 grams you expect it to be reasonably full nope only 1/4 full. Will never buy Swisse products again.

Misleading information on the label

published

I completely agree with the review posted by annie13. Magnesium citrate is better used as a laxative! It is not ideal for muscle function support. I think the labeling of this needs to be changed as it is misleading. This made me very nauseous. I did not feel better on Swisse.

Size Of The Magnesium Tablet Is Enormous, More For A Horse Than A Normal Human Being.

I will never ever buy Swisse Magnesium Tablets again. Thy are so huge, even when breaking them in halve, they get stuck in my throat. Absolutely horrible. I bought Blooms Magnesium capsules and they are far superior to the Swisse brand.

I recently turned 40 and decided that I'd be healthier, adjust diet, work out more etc
And added the swisse magnesium vitamin supplement as well, as I had read that magnesium helps with muscle recovery, stress, assist with general well being and bones etc and I can definately say that this product is wonderful and works, I have had more energy, and taking this supplement helps with my pms symptoms too!

Yesterday, I purchased Swiss High Strength Magnesium Powder (orange) from Coles Tuggerah NSW. Took my first dose (as directed on label) for muscle cramps and awoke this morning with a big case of diarrhoea. As this cannot be a normal side effect, please advise me on procedure to return this product to Coles with a full refund. Thank you, Carol M.
