"I've been using this product for about 4 years. It works as advertised and I am well pleased. Vitacost continues to be my most trusted company for all vitamin and health needs. Just like this product, all of the different products are high quality and I know I can trust them."
"I would like to say what prompted me to purchase this product was the fact it was approved as one of the best products on consumerlabs.com website. And at a great price $$$$ too. As a subscriber to Consumerlabs I use this site thoroughly for all my products that I research before buying..."
"Recommended by my bariatric surgeon, I'm not sure of it's effectiveness. I don't like the fact that it has doubled in price in 18 months! I may be forced to quit taking this & then I will finally know whether it is effective or not."
"I'm not sure it's effective to my body or not, but my body condition is not going worse after having the capsule. So I continue to take the capsule for more than a year. And this product is cheaper than the similar product I can buy in Japan even considering the shipping cost."
"This product won't work. You need propionate and here's why:
Acetyl-L-carnitine propionate, which is very hard to find. You will find acetyl-L-carnitine pretty easily and for cheap, but the lack of the propionate ester makes the supplement ten times less effective."
"Although I've given NSI's Acetyl L Carnitine HCI the highest ratings in all categories, I don't truly know how effective it is. I've just started taking it on my doc's advice. However, I have been using NSI products for about a year now, and each one I have tried has been effective, high quality (pharm. grade) and the value cannot be beat.
My doc is highly suspect of most vitamin companies, feeling they sacrifice quality for profit. I've come to believe this is not the case with NSI. I also like the fact that you can buy many of their supplements in quantities of up to 300 tabs or capsules--that really helps to keep the price down."
I have been using it for about 4 weeks now. Work out regiment is high intensity 3 times a week. Sensible diet (with supplemental protein)/sleep 7-8 a night/ working out history since 18 y. o. (I am 23 now). Muscle soreness is significantly reduced with this product. Although, I have not had much problem with being too sore anyway, the recovery time is closer to 1 day now vs 2 days.
