This highly bioavailable magnesium supplement is exclusive to the Metagenics range. Mag Glycinate gives you a form of magnesium known as  magnesium bis-glycinate, which is absorbed into your body in a similar way to amino acids. That means it’s not dependent on normal absorption via stomach acids, and is therefore faster-acting and more effective than other magnesium supplements. Metagenics’ patented Mag Glycinate promotes healthy bones and muscles, supports the nervous system and keeps your energy levels in a healthy balance.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.

Sleep, mood and all-round wellbeing are improved
01/03/2023, By Margaret
The Metagenics range is excellent quality. I particularly enjoy the Magnesium Glycinate for my personal needs to curb cramps etc. Purchasing the larger container with more tablets is more affordable.
The tablets are rather large and solid but one gets used to it... I highly recommend these.
09/11/2022, By Lisa
Since calcium is so important for health its good to have a magnesium supplement that is absorbed and used by the body.
08/11/2022, By Lia
First magnesium supplement that has delivered on its promise to help improve quality of sleep. Both my children are sleeper deeper and longer with this magnesium, and my sleep and night cramps have also improved. Highly recommend it, it's worth the money!
03/09/2022, By Katie
Such a fantastic magnesium. I have tried many other brands but this is the only brand which has improved my digestion and stopped muscle cramping completely and twitching.
18/04/2022, By Gabrielle
High quality magnesium in its most absorbable form. I've come to appreciate quality supplements and the price is worth it. I've been sleeping much better since starting on these and my pain has decreased.

Definitely helps with sleep and overall health - especially when coupled with the vitamin D supplement!
26/04/2021, By Lal
I bought this to help me with the quality of my sleep. It works incredibly well. In the past, I would struggle to fall asleep, have nightmares, and never really slept deeply. With this supplement, the change from day 1 has been incredible. I fall asleep quickly, sleep deeply and the nightmares have lessened a great deal. It's only been a couple of weeks, but I am loving the product.
13/04/2021, By Linda
The best magnesium supplement
04/02/2021, By Danielle
This type of magnesium is working well for my migraines. I have used this product for 6 months now and am seeing a difference, better than any other meds I have tried. The recommended dose per day is 2 tablets, but at the price I am only taking one a day.
19/01/2021, By Kelly
Highly recommend!

Great sleep aid
20/08/2020, By Zest
My doctor recommended mag bis-glycinate as one of the best forms, and this product is excellent. Due to insomnia issues I have been taking two to three tablets each evening, and it has helped tremendously, without unduly upsetting my stomach the next day. Very expensive - but I would pay almost anything to have quality sleep again at last!
12/08/2020, By Lili
Seems to be helping with my muscles, wish I could afford to try a higher dose, but am just taking one a day for now.

Can't wait to order again! I can feel the difference in my muscles and helps with insomnia as well as anxiety!
11/11/2019, By Tumelo Rosemary
An excellent product it relaxes my stiffy muscles and gives me a peaceful night.
05/08/2019, By EnZee2018
This product was recommended to me by my chiropractor who is a holistic healer. Most of the products produced by big brands are pretty useless and to quote him on how they compare to the Metagenics brand "like comparing Oros to freshly squeezed orange juice". Important to use Magnesium Glycinate.
11/01/2019, By Irmgard
Great product. I did a lot of research before I bought this. It is one of the better Mag Glycinates that are affordable and available to us in South Africa. I have been using it for close on a year now and find that it really helps me. The fact that it is gluten-free is another reason for me using it.
01/11/2018, By Sabine
top product!

Magnesium stearate is bad !!
I use Dr Mercola as my point of reference here.
We really should set higher standards in SA...there are exceptional brands overseas without all the fillers and binders that further compromise our health and wellbeing.
The pharmaceutical companies would of course love for us to believe otherwise.
Do your research people...yes the product is gluten free, but what else are they not telling us about.
Take responsibility for own health and do not believe everything these pharmaceutical companies and Doctors say.
