    Good Product

    I think it's great value for money considering it's got about a 1,000 or so serves in a KG bag.

    However, I do suffer from reflux and didn't realise it would reduce the effect of the medication I take for that condition. That's likely oversight on my part as the product clearly does contain acid in the name. That's one thing I'd advise anyone else to be aware.

    I'm not certain if I'm seeing any tangible benefits after using the product for some time, but understandably it's always difficult to determine as this is only a supplement to good diet and exercise.

    Great product, but arrives with clumps

    I take this product daily for a muscular disease and find since I started taking it daily my incidence of muscle cramping has lessened greatly. My only gripe is each time I receive a new packet a lot of the product is clumped (possibly from moisture) . I wonder if the product came in a plastic air tight tub it may reduce this occurrence?

    Vinegar and rotten eggs had a baby and made this. Don’t mix it with your other supplements, it will destroy the taste. Take it as a shot and the taste disappears super fast.

    Aside from the taste, it’s a great product... if you don’t want to deal with the taste grab the l-carnitine instead.

    Tastes ok and dissolves easy

    Taste is bitter but easy enough to drink. I’ve dropped about 2 kg since using it and I’ve noticed more energy especially at the gym.

    Acetyl Carnitine

    No real difference since taking this product. I train 6 days a week and eat very clean. Only noticed a slight body temp. Increase in the first week. That's about it. No weight loss or shredding for me.

    I like the taste and dissolves easy.

    The product is let down a little by the scoop so i'll need to find a scale to measure my dosages, otherwise it's 5 stars for quality.

    Easy to stomach, mixes well with water.

    I just mix the required dose in a glass of water and drink it

    Bit of a weird one this one - everyone is right, the taste is kinda rank - like nothing anything i have ever tasted before but you actually get over/used to it pretty quickly.
