"been taking this for years and can really tell a difference when I stop. I think this is the main reason people think I am 10 years younger than I really am. I have bought it other places but Vitacost has the best price and can't beat NSI products!"
"As with most daily supplements, it is very difficult to observe short term improvements in your health. However, research suggests that this is a very positive addition to the diets of most people over forty. I think what can be observed is the quality of the supplement, capsule vs caplet, and the cost. On those measures I highly recommend this product."
"I gave this product a very negative review because it was a complete waste of money for me. this particular formulation upset my stomach to the point where I could not take it. But since I had already opened the product, I was stuck with it. I have no trouble with most supplements, so if you are thinking about using this one, start small so you won't end up throwing your money away like I did."
"I recently read an article on things you can do to slow the aging process and one of the items was to take 2000 mg of Acetyl L-Carnitine and 800 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid daily. I started searching health food stores for these items and could not believe the price, so expensive! I checked online and found this product, in the exact dosage I needed, (I take 4 capsules daily) for an amazingly low price. My energy level is increased, I feel great, and people can't believe it when I reveal my age! (41)"
"I read all the articles on this combo and its very interesting and promsing. I have noticed increased concentration with use (about one month). I would recommend this product along with plain ACL--articles recommend effective dosage of 1000-2000 mg a day. I would not recommend that dose with this product because too much of alpha lopic acid can cause low blood sugar problems. But you can take one of these and one of plain ACL (from this site) and your done. I think this is the best product/value. Vitacost is the best in value!"
Average rating because I don't know what it's doin

"I have no idea if this is doing a thing for me. I've been taking it for about 3 to 4 years because I've read how terrific it is for you, but haven't a clue about how it is really working. Blind faith, I guess you could say."
"We read about studies on Alpha Lipoic acid and L carnitine being given to mice and how it affected their brain function, activity level and longevity in an amazing way. Based on this study and the recommendation of many cutting edge anti-aging western medicine doctors, we felt we should be taking this and have done so for several years and feel it has helped us very much. Always looking for the best price on everything, I discovered Vitacost and started purchasing this combination and now many of my other supplements because the price is almost always lower than elsewhere in addition to the fact that Vitacost has provided excellent service."
