Advice & Tips: I have no idea if this worked for me. It could have been placebo honestly. The only reason I was taking this was for muscle tension and because I heard it would help my skin/acne. I don't know if it did really. I don't think it hurts though, considering from several studies the average American is deficient in this.

    Major (for restless feeling in legs)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 800 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: For me, this supplement is a miracle worker for restless leg syndrome (RLS). I would get it so bad I practically had to sleep standing up due to I couldn't lay or even sit without my legs having to move all the time!! Then a neighbor suggested Magnesium and to this day, I've been free of RLS. I probably jinxed myself by saying that just now, but it's true! And after trying all the prescription stuff like Requip, all it takes is two 400mg pills with breakfast and supper and I'm all set.
Cost: < $25 monthly

The very first morning after taking this a bedtime I awoke feeling muscles in my legs that I haven't felt in years. Unexpectedly I also found this eliminated my constipation problems I've had for years because of muscle weakness.
