Not impressed
 February 21, 2013
"I had hoped to feel more energized (or at least, more stamina) from this product.
I had been taking a competitor's standardized product for 2 months before trying yours. I feel better with theirs -- which is also considerably less expensive -- though, to be fair, also has not quite lived up to my expectations."
