Rated 5 out of 5 by The only one in it's field period. Why give a review if you cannot express that it save my life and it's the only product that lives up to it's claims. I have tried others, without success and negative reactions. After 7 years I now function normal daily, and that's mildly putting it! April 22, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by More energy This product gives me more energy, so much so that I have to make sure I take it in the mornings because I will get insomnia if I take it too late. It doesn't make me hyper, just gives me a notch more energy to make it through the day. January 26, 2009
