      L-Carnitine PLUS Green Coffee Extract.


      L-CARNITINE is a naturally occurring amino acid which plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell. It has been established that
      an adequate supply of L-carnitine is necessary for the maintenance of good health and energy. L-carnitine transports long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane to be metabolized. L-carnitine aids in the release of stored body fat, called triglycerides, into the bloodstream for energy.


      GREEN COFFEE EXTRACT (GCA) - GCA is extracted from coffee beans that have not yet been roasted. There are two key compounds in unroasted coffee beans: caffeic acid and chlorogenic acid. The chlorogenic acid and
      caffeic acid in GCA have been clinically studied to have several beneficial effects on weight loss. Studies suggest that GCA is an effective nutraceutical in reducing weight in adults for the following reasons:
      Inhibition of fatty acid synthase, increased fat oxidation and increased metabolism.

    Directions
    Take two (2) capsules before meals or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.

    When I got this product, I was at a plateau that I could not get through! As soon as I started using this product, I could feel it working. I feel a buzz of energy within the first hour or so. I was not jittery, just happy! :-) As I used this product, I realized that it helped to get my digestive system going. Basically, my system finally started metabolizing fat and it helped to rid my body of the excessive bloating!

    I need to reorder this product, because it made me feel good! I love the results that I had as well. I finally moved past my plateau!

    The salesman ASSURED me that the caffine content would not affect my sleep - and he was WRONG. I woke up 5 or 6 times through the night and could not get back to sleep. During the day I did feel more energized and less hungry, so I am going to try not taking the last dose. It's too soon to tell if there will be any weight loss, but I wanted to warn others about the possibility of sleeplessness from this product.

          Did not help to lose weight one bit. Also, this product gave me stomach cramps.

          I would not recommend it to anyone.

                I have used this product for a week now and the results are real. I would recommend that you take it before excercise on an empty stomach. I have been taking this product along with TSN bcaa hyperblend for early morning cardio sessions. My hunger is suppressed, my energy is up and the fat is burning away leaving the muscle.

                              I bought two bottles of this product several months ago. About an hour after I took the recommended 2 capsules, my throat became sore, my neck glands swelled, my eyelids swelled and my eyes began to tear. I thought it was due to the change of season and continued to take it. However, after several weeks of trial and error, I realized it could only be this product. I have had no symptoms since I discontinued taking it.

                                The product does provide for improved energy but I took a different extract earlier this year and experienced results I am not seeing with these. Unfortunately I purchased two bottles and opened one for home and one for work and can't return them or I would. I am researching the earlier brand to purchase.

                                This product did next to nothing for me. While the first few days I did feel like I had more energy in the mornings, that feeling soon faded after I had been taking the supplements for 5 or 6 days. (I'm wondering if that was more a psychological effect; I was expecting to feel more energized from taking these pills) I finished a whole bottle and did not lose an inch or a single pound. I increased my exercise, cut out alcohol, and consumed a few hundred calories less than normal each day. I also did not eat past 7 p.m. I'm not sure what I could have done differently to increase any possible effectiveness from these supplements. Other than feeling more clear headed (which I honestly attribute to being more active and being booze free), I wouldn't recommend purchasing these pills.

                                  I'm at the bottom of my first bottle, quite honestly I did not see any benefit. I chose this specific product because of the reviews and the L-Carnitine hoping for the claimed energy boost, not a bit. I can say that when taken properly you can expect increased bowel movements. My energy nor my weight changed what so ever using this product.

                                  I work out 3 nights a week, I use protein shakes in the morning and I take Creatine after my workouts. Maybe that has something to do with my lack of results.

                                  I was actually recommended a different product when I was shopping for this product, I think i'll try that one next.

                                    I've been using green coffee extract for over a month and it has really helped me to control my appetite. I immediately notice I didnt need to snack between meals because I wasnt hungry. I went from snacking between meals 3 times a day to snacking just once a day and sometimes not at all. In addition, this brand doesnt upset my stomach like some of the other brands did. I'd recommend it.

                                    Coupled with lean and healthy eating and some good cardio, saw the last of the beer belly I gained in college go away. Great preworkout. Highly recommended.

                                      I am halfway done with my cutting cycle and decided to try using L-Carnitine after reading about it online. Coupled with cardio and clean eating it helped me cut down on those last few pounds. Definitely saw a difference after only a week.

                                      I have been using this product for almost 2 months now and have lost over 6 inches overall. It curbs my appetite and i have tons of energy. I reccommened this product, along with diet and exercise of course. The combination of L-Carnitine and Green Coffee is heaven in a bottle.

                                      I took 2 tablets twice daily 30 minutes before my meal. This did not help me loose any weight nor did it give me any boost of energy. It did cause irritation to my stomach and body aches and swelling. A 30 day trial was enough to find out this is not for me.

                                      Does the green coffee extract have a stimulant effect? The slightest amount of stimulant makes me jittery and unable to sleep. Thanks for the information!

                                      Best Answer: I believe a slight amount of caffeine is present in green coffee bean extract so if you are very sensitive to stimulants, I would steer clear. Or start with one pill before breakfast and then lunch, rather than breakfast and dinner. Hope that helps!

                                      I know the recommended dose it two pills before every meal but how much is it of a difference if I only take one before each meal? How long should I wait to eat after taking a pill?

                                      Best Answer: I follow all directions for any supplements that I take. If you want to see if you have any adverse reactions...start with one.

                                      I am on my 2nd bottle of this and I was surprised on how well it worked. I didn't have much to lose, but it helped get rid of my belly fat. My question is - have any you seen the effects decline or stop after using it for two months? It seems to have slowed down working and I called the company - they told be to take 2 with each meal. I think 3x's a day is a lot, but I am trying twice a day.
