Vitacost Magnesium Taurate -- 2500 mg - 120 Vegetarian Tablets
Magnesium Taurate - Do the math!
The molecular weight of magnesium taurate is 290.60. The atomic weight of magnesium is 24.305. This means that magnesium taurate contains about 8.4% magnesium, so two tablets provide about 210 mg of magnesium. This is why the "product details" says, "Get half the Daily Value for magnesium in just two tablets!"

Highly absorbable magnesium, but huge pills
I had been buying Magnesium Taurate by Cardiovascular Research for years, but discovered that Vitacost had their own brand. It is much more affordable, which is great, but the pills are huge. I will continue buying it for the cost savings, though.

I was giving my mom the powder form of magnesium but it was hard for her to remember how much to put in the water and to even remember to take it. I got the pill form and now it's not a problem anymore. It works for her and she doesn't have to mess with mixing it with water!

I did some research and this product is fabulous for absorption - I don't usually like tablets but for the price.......it's a whole lot cheaper than what I was using before : Advanced Research Membrane Complex.

Really big tablets with serving size of 2 tablest
I don't have any problems with the supplements, but to get 200mg magnesium you have to take 2 very large tablets.
