My concern is this does not have ALA (alpha lipoic acid) so make sure you take it with ALA. Without ALA you could AGE FASTER. Please research before taking this alone. I have purchase ALpha lipoic acid 200mg/capsule to finish this bottle.

These give me heartburn. It was okay as long as I only took 1-2 capsules but the maximum dose 4 capsules give me a terrible heartburn. The lower dose does not give me more energy, which was why I wanted to try this product in the first place. Sadly a disappointment.

I took one in the morning, got some energy from it. But also got insomnia at night.

I was very excited when I received, so I took 2 in the morning, gave me diarreah all day, felt terrible, then I got home took one more I had a cold for about 2 weeks from when I originally took them, I'm not sure what happened I hate to throw them away, I might try taking just one pill to see if I can slowly ween myself onto them, I just hate to throw these away.

I watched an episode in which Dr Oz explained, with a heart specialist, that latest research shows that this will change in your intestine into a substance that sticks to your arteries, eventually clogging them causing strokes and heart attack. When I tried to return the bottle, it was refused because it is already open. Now the manufacturers are up to it and are saying l- carnitive is safe if you don't eat lots of red meat: steaks, roasts, and hamburgers = that's anti-amerikano!
