This is the type of energy product that, for me, provides me with just enough of an energy boost that takes me from thinking all I want to do is go home and have a nap ... to simply being able to continue on. It does not provide the complete turn around that an energy drink gives but its effect is sufficient enough to keep you going. Having said that, my quest for a nutritional energy boost that is not your typical energy drink continues. A good product to have on hand. I keep them in the car.

This is one of those products that is 'silent' in its benefit. I started taking it due to a lack of energy, stress, etc. There were days were my energy was so low that it was almost (almost!) debilitating. Started taking the adrenal gland tabs and my energy increased to what I would consider just above 'normal'. I felt human again! Then, because of just that, I stopped taking the tablets! Silly me. Bad idea! It's just human nature. :-) Energy slipped again, etc. Once I realized the connection I started again. This is one of those supplements that doesn't save the day, so to speak, but is worth its weight in gold in that it gets you back on track. That alone is worth it!!
I suffer from cold sores that seem to only make an appearance when I am under stress. Taking lysine most definitely and absolutely helps to keep them 'at bay'. I only wish they offered a 625mg capsule as research indicates that taking 1,250mg daily is what your body ideally needs. Lysine is one of my vital daily supplements (x3).
This calcium supplement/formula is a good choice for a few reasons. 1) it offers three different types of both calcium and magnesium in case your body does not (easily) assimilate one type; 2) it contains magnesium which is needed to absorb calcium; 3) it contains vitamin D which is needed to absorb magnesium. Most people do not know that and subsequently only take a pure calcium formula which is doing very little good. Thus why I state this is one of the better ones!
I received this product as a (full) sample and was eager to try it as I am always seeking a nutritional energy boost. I am 40 years young, self employed and work crazy hours. There are times when I am just quite simply exhausted (completely and utterly exhausted) and while energy drinks are great (and work!), they are not the best. So, I was anxious to try this product. For me ... and everyone is an individual ... this did absolutely nothing for my energy level! Not even one teeny tiny bit of difference. Nothing! In fact, it even made me bloat. And let me tell you, fatigued and bloated is not a good combination. :-) Disappointed but mostly because I was really hoping for the best.
