What We Think
Matt's take: This is one of the new products I use almost every night. Since I first got product samples in the Fall of last year, I don't think I missed more than a few nights without drinking PILLAR before bed. It's simple. I simply sleep better every night when I drink it before bed.
In my case, I can get mild leg discomfort that wakes me up. It could be the night after a hard workout, but I also get it on rest days. Sometimes, even more on rest days.
The Triple Magnesium format is ideal. What's impressive is how well PILLAR has made it taste, as magnesium is notoriously hard to make taste good. I'll make a bold statement that this is the best-tasting magnesium drink!
I prefer the powdered form to drink, and one scoop is plenty for me. Mix it with about 6 oz - 8 oz of water, stir or shake, and drink.
Why do all the Pros use this?
It's not a secret that many of the world's best endurance athletes, and especially triathletes like Jan Frodeno, Ben Kanute and Magnus Ditlev now swear by PILLAR. The huge roster of other pros now using PILLAR is too long to list, but it was one of the things that first attracted me to the product, it is rare to have a product have such a high profile and vocal following.
PILLAR TRIPLE MAGNESIUM features three select forms of highly absorbable magnesium, including TRAACS® from Albion Minerals. Together these forms provide multi-action support for sleep promotion and recovery. It's the perfect addition to your bedtime routine.
Magnesium is used to support the recovery phase after physical activity, including muscular aches, pains, cramps and spasms. Ever lay in bed after a big day and feel those little cramp twinges!?
The TRIPLE MAGNESIUM powder is flavored using natural strawberry and beetroot extract, a sweet all-natural taste. Notably, PILLAR has included beets in this recovery formulation as they have been associated with a huge range of benefits, many we've touched on before (Here I speak about Triple Magnesium Natural Berry Flavour).
Why the Focus on Magnesium?
Magnesium plays an essential role in more than 300 essential biochemical processes, notably the serotonin pathway for sleep. For athletes, magnesium also plays a vital role in energy production and muscle function. The most important reason to use PILLAR is to support a better, deeper sleep to improve your next day's recovery.

They suggest taking two (2) tablets per day with food –or as directed by your healthcare professional– alongside your normal, healthy diet. These are super easy to pop in your Micro Shaker and chill!
When's the best time to take Triple Magnesium for performance outcomes?
Thanks to the inclusion of TRAACS® Magnesium glycinate, PILLAR has unmatched absorption. It immediately acts to calm the nervous system. It then helps with deep sleep, muscle relaxation, and overall recovery. This makes it best suited to take in the evening, about an hour or so before bed.
