"I have a lap band and the capsules that this product is in is made out of a rice product that dissolves very quickly. My Dr. put me on this product because I have little muscle and I needed help gaining some. It has helped me do just that. So, I just wanted to say that this product works and it is awesome!!!"
"I've ordered this many times and had no problems but the last batch I got smells like baking soda and tastes salty like baking soda and some of the capsules looked like they were popping open. I don't know what happened, but now I don't want to take these."
"I've used Vitacost for my supplement purchases for many years and have always been very pleased with their products! I've seen them reviewed in Consumer Reports and ranked very highly by them. What's not to love! Laura"
"Vitacost's carnitine is great. Carnitine works. The capsule form& few fillers are a huge plus. Can't beat the price, either.
My only qualm...the smell will knock you down. Especially if one of the capsules is broken. LCarnitine in general has an off putting, fish-like smell. But this brand is even more noticable. That's why I reviewed this 4/5 stars."
"When I was told I would be using L-Carntene for a long time following gastric-bypass I checked several places where I could get the product, I saved 25 to 50% off the price of any other place. The people in customer service are very friendly and helpful."
"There were a few broken capsules in the bottle and that has made all the other capsules extremely salty. Also, if I take more than two capsules at a time, my face and ears start to flush - the flushing lasts for a few hours and is a little annoying."
