This stuff is awesome!! Just like everyone said: It helps give you natural energy with NO crash. And, it works in about 30 minutes after you drink it.

Every "Winter" I start taking Astragalus and Echinacea to help fight off illness. Before I found this product I had to take 1 of each. Now I just take 1 pill and it has both in it. Great idea.

It really does what it says it will do. I felt an immediate sense of calmness and relief and the ability to gather my thoughts & feelings around me and compose myself to move forward. I recently lost my father and this HELPED a lot!!!

This product is the only one I've found that is Vegetarian. I've been taking it for many years and love the product. It helps to supplement where I am missing out on "omegas" as they are from fish.

I haven't noticed any fat or weight loss, however, I do feel that it's helping with appetite suppression, energy, and metabolism. And, it does so gradually and gently w/o any crash or side effects. I will continue to take this product and watch for its benefits.

I started taking these pills when I had a lot of life changes: I moved to a different part of the state, had no job, wasn't finding a job, was living in an RV and couldn't find an apartment yet. These things seemed overwhelming. I started taking two of these a day (along with regular meditation) and they help life seem less overwhelming and more manageable. It's a subtle difference but it's enough to make the difference I needed. I recommend them to everyone.

This product seemed to make me use the restroom more often. And, it made my bladder seem SOOOO full that I could not wait. Although it did seem to give me more energy it had a crash feeling unlike the guarana. I will save this product to use only in cases of absolute emergency but will not use as a daily energy booster.

I used to use Now Foods Yerba Mate but they don't make it anymore so I went on a search for another product and I found this. I have only been taking one per day, unless I am out somewhere and not sure when I will be able to eat next, and then I take another one. It really does help suppress the appetite so that you are not hungry but it doesn't remove the appetite so that when you are ready to eat you are able to eat a regular sized meal without feeling sick.

It has been my experience that one must take L-Carnitine for 60 to 90 days before you can determine if it is making a visible difference. I have just switched to this brand from another that my local pharmacy used to carry OTC so I cannot make an accurate assessment of this product at this time.

I'm a vegetarian and have been spinning for the last 8 mos. I recently read in a cycling magazine that creatine was recommended (at 5g a day) for vegetarians. So, I ordered this. I took it the first day 30 mins before spinning and WOW! I had a ton of energy so much so that I was starving after the first hour of class! I have taken it since and it provides energy every time. I have only recently started lifting weights again so I haven't noticed any muscle mass changes at this point, but I highly recommend this product. Please note that the pill, while rather large, is coated and extremely easy to swallow!! So, do not be intimidated by the size. Thanks NOW Foods for creating such an awesome and affordable product.
