What we think

Matt's take: This is one of the 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 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 drink, and one scoop is plenty for me. Mix it with about 6 oz of water, stir, 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 swear by Pillar.  The roster of pros 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. 

Product Details

Pillar TRIPLE MAGNESIUM features three select forms of bioavailable magnesium, providing multi-action support for neuromuscular function 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. Every 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.

Why the Focus on Magnesium?

Magnesium plays an essential role in more than 300 essential biochemical processes. For athletes, magnesium 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.

How to Use It:

They recommend taking one (1) 5g scoop per day. I like to take it right before Bed.

When's the best time to take magnesium for performance outcomes?

Thanks to the inclusion of magnesium glycinate dihydrate in TRIPLE MAGNESIUM, in addition to the other highly bioavailable forms, it acts on the nervous system. It helps with sleep, muscle relaxation, and overall recovery. This makes it best suited to take in the evening, about an hour or so before bed for most people.
