Great results from trusted brand
 July 4, 2010
"Some might be intimidated by the size of this tab, but it's long/narrow and I don't have any trouble with it. Very effective in my CoQ10-Carnitine-Ribose regimen; blood pressure behaves very nicely. And Source Naturals is a trusted brand; you can find cheaper, but this is quality I trust."

Serious problem
 September 21, 2009
"Although this product has good value as far as content is concered, it has one serious problem, i.e. it dissolves too quickly.
I fill my pill boxes once per week, and if we have a couple of days of rain, by the end of the week, these pill will have turned to a gooey, nasty mess, which contaminates my other supplements (and tastes nasty.)
These caplets need to be coated so they do not absorb moisture so easily."

It really helps!

"I haven't used a wide variety of acetyl l-carnitine products, but this product does help and definitely makes a difference. My thinking seems to be clearer, and it seems I have more access to parts of my brain!"

A Pharmacist's statement about it.
 June 16, 2007
"This in, combination with alpha lipoic acid, stimulates the mitochondria of the cell to increase the ATP production. CoQ 10 enhances transfer of the energy to other parts of the cell for utilization. These can increase your base metabolic rate, help cognition and physical endurance. Alpha lipoic acid is kind of caustic and upsetting to the stomach- eating with some fat will help alleviate this. Fat also assists absorption of CoQ10."
