Great Product!! Review by

I have been taking these for some years now, to help with lactic acid build-up from Fibromyalgia. I sure notice the difference if I run out, with increased pain, muscle spasms and cramps.

I have been using L Carnitine for several years. I have fibromyalgia, and find that this product helps enormously with reducing muscle pain and also helps with weight management as I am unable to exercise. I find I have more energy when taking it. In reference to the post by Claire re thyroid caution. I had a thyroidectomy 30 years ago because of a tumour, and have taken oral thyroxine since that date, and have not notice any decrease in function, although loss of energy is one of the major symptoms of fibromyalgia. Having said all that, we are all individuals, and react in individual ways to all medications and supplements. I have friends that also reacted positively, and some that found it of my help at all.

Not achieving what I want Review by

I have been taking this for almost 6 months, in conjunction with Lipoic Acid, in an effort to ease mild allodynia symptoms. I've not noticed any improvement unfortunately, but its always good to try these things when western medicine can't help.

Despite some clinical evidence about raising fat metabolism, the long term effects of this may not help you. Long term effects are said to be REDUCED THYROID function,. That means reduced metabolism overall. Do your own research. I took acetyl-l-carnitine which was efficient to burn fat whilst working out. HOWEVER i then found that I was losing energy and started to work out less. Now I was taking l-carnitine and appearing to gain fat, even though eating super well. This may affect your thyroid function in the longterm, Not worth it for me.

Fantastic appetite supplement. I use for nerve damage but this assists me in not gaining weight whilst I am at a lower level of activity. I lost the 2 inches around the waist I gained within two weeks. Wonderful.
