"I currently take anywhere from 2-3g a day and it definitely makes a difference when i go running and lifting, usually take it 30-40 minutes before hand to let my body fully absorb it . Would highly recommend it. Just take caution in handling the bottle because the pills do seem to be fragile ."
"This product does what it is supposed to and is great in that aspect, but I would not purchase again due to the pill coating looks like it is "sweating" and comes off on everything (it is white)...the pills also get other vitamins, etc full of the coating when put in a case..."
"Thank goodness they are tasteless, because these pills fall apart with even a bit of moisture. Forget keeping them in a weekly vitamin container. I have been taking them for about a month, not sure about the effectiveness yet, although L-carnitine was recommended by my naturopathic doctor."
"This product is great! I had some problems with the pills dissolving when I put them in with the other pills for the day (I do this every week, in envelopes). So I take it out each morning. Not sure why they dissolve when placed with other vitamins, but it is an easy fix. Thanks for great vitamin & mineral supplements!"
