Great for Focus, Nerve Pain
Found that it enhances OCD behaviors a bit, and can make you a bit individualistic. My girlfriend and I take it along with Ribose which mitigates the above problems. We have both been taking this supplement off and on for the past year. Combined with American Ginseng, Eulethero, Ribose, EGCg it has allowed my girlfriend to begin working and get off of Disability which she has been on for 8 years.
Personally I noticed a boost in coordination after one dose that 5 years of martial arts training couldn't give me. I also ride the bus for errands and work and I no longer end up falling on people!

This is a great supplement for memory, particularly remembering something over the period of a day. For instance reading a book on Hypoglycemia, and then being able to pick up food items without a list a few hours later. Something that just brain training alone doesn't provide. Additionally the subjective experience has been that of my thoughts and memories being more fluid, transitioning to different tasks has been much easier. Its not stimulating, it just requires far less effort to move in the direction desired. I will definitely be reordering.
Taking it for a year
I have problems absorbing B Vitamins and having my body adapt to stimulants within months. This is the only B Vitamin supplement that has lasted more then a week and still be effective. I have taken the full range of B Vits from several different companies, have taken higher then average dosages with no consistency in results unit this product. I reccomend NOW Ascorbic Acid powder in addition if it dosnt seem to be working like normal, it seems to help the body matabolize it better (mix into a glass of water).
Found that I had to take 4 tablets of it to even get close to SAMe 400mg in alertness. In addition I have a very sensitive stomach and get nauseated easily and this only made the problem worse even at one tablet.
Great for Hot Climates

We recently moved from 6hrs north of New York City to Phoenix AZ and were previously using Sibereian (Eulethero)Ginseng but found that it overheated us down here. We ordered this product, got the same pain relief and helped us adjust to the hotter climate as well.
Very slow digesting
I have problems processing proteins (plant as well as animal based) and have found that this product provides me with a base strength I am not accustomed to getting from food. Two problems though, it tastes bad and you need a blender in order to get it to mix. It is not a protein that you will want to drink on its own. I use it to make coffee/chocolate smoothies along with milk and Calcium Carbonate powder which when mixed properly before adding it to milk (or water) allows it to be mixed with a table knife.
