"Why did you make a B-Free version of Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT?"
The original Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT (often referred to as "Mag SRT") has become a very popular magnesium supplement.
But a segment of our customers requested the ability to supplement their B vitamins separately from their magnesium supplements.
Well, some people (maybe 3-5% of the population?) seem genetically predisposed to feeling bad when taking certain B vitamins.
For example, here's a post titled Vitamin B makes me angry and violent, with many comments of people citing their own negative experiences with B6, B12, and/or Folate from various different supplement brands.
(And if this has ever happened to you, we recommend that you talk about it with your physician or healthcare provider.)
Keep in mind... on Amazon, the original MagSRT has 1,000+ reviews, with a rating of 4.7 stars -- 92% of which are 4 & 5 stars.
BUT... 3% of the reviews are 1 star, and many of them tell a similar story as the following review.
And the "Top critical review" listed below sounds eerily familiar to so many of the comments on the B Vitamins make me angry and violent post, doesn't it?
So if you, a family member, or a friend used the original Mag SRT, but felt bad after taking it, perhaps it was related to the B vitamins, and this new B-Free formula would be a good substitute?
(Again, if this has happened to you in the past, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about it.)
Positive early feedback...
According to Jigsaw customers via Facebook comments, this new Mag SRT B-Free formula seems to be just what they were looking for!
Here's three quick examples:

"Where can I buy Jigsaw Mag SRT B-Free?"
(Btw, if your favorite supplier doesn't yet have it, please contact them and ask them to order it from us at 480-951-0840.)
"Will you continue to make the original Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT?"
Upon hearing the announcement of this new B-Free formula, several customers asked that question via Facebook.
And the answer is, "Yes! Absolutely, most definitely, positively!!" :)
After all, 92% of Amazon reviewers rate it 4 and 5 stars! So for most folks, it's obvious that the original Mag SRT formula still works great for them. And we're happy to continue making it.
"Which Magnesium w/SRT should I take?"
Most people (perhaps even as high as 90% - 95% of the population, based on our Amazon reviews) can continue taking the original Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT since everyone needs B6, B12, and Folate. After all, these are essential B vitamins that must be obtained from food and/or dietary supplement sources.
However, if you suspect that you've had a bad reaction taking any of these B vitamins in the past, then we recommend taking Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT (B-Free) instead.
Or, of course, use as directed by your health care professional.
