Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is working for me, and that's the selling point in my book. The product is doing its job. I've purchased more as a result, and I've mentioned it to friends, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puritan Pride I bought this product for my wife. She sent it to her home country because they can't get it there or the price is so high there they can't afford it. Her family seems to think it is a good product. I read about this online and found out that it is a naturally occurring substance in red meat and is considered not a necessary supplement. If you can't eat red meat then this product will provide the nutrient needed. The price was a good value and we are satisfied. Thanks.... Puritan....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good quality product Simply put I have not seen or sense any results from taking puritan's presentation of L-carnitine, also the product itself lacks of quality, you can tell as soon as you place a pill in your mouth.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality Consistently is HORRIBLE! I have 3 opened bottles, 6 unopened, & many more I have tossed becuz they've turned to mush. I thought it was me, 1st I stored in laundry room (moisture/humidity). But I mvd to different places in my house with same result. Someone in Florida stated it was becuz of high humidity. But I'm in very hot dry climate. I like results of pills, so I kept ordering thinking I cld resolve problem or just a specific shipment. But, just like majority of reviews, outside coat starts to crack, & b4 u can consume 60 caps, they've crumbled into mush. This is ridiculous, especially after so many comments. I love PP however u really need to find a resolve.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Capsules crumble when opened Puritan's web site should not be encouraging doubling the order on this product when it has such a poor shelf life. Need to order the minimum possible, although I don't think I'll will be buying this again from Puritan's Pride.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Caplets swell and crumble before finishing product. Good prices but the way these are made, the shelf life is very short. I'm sure if I sent them back I'd get refund or credit but, I don't have time. I just threw them out. This happened twice before when buying this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price and expediant. Less expensive than others and I hope just as effective. Honesty in publicizing?
Date published: 2013-05-23
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product goes bad in about a week After a week of opening the product the caplets began to expand and crack. This has happened to me with every bottle that I have opened (about six of them so far) afterwards there is a bad odor coming from the container when it is opened. Do not buy this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy with the product The product came quickly. I had read reviews about moisture problems but I haven't had any moisture problems with the bottles I have opened so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from L-carnitine Fast acting, could tell within a couple of hours that it was already taking effect. My saying is, if you can't feel the differece after taking it the first two days, you just don't need it BUT this was within hours which told me not only did I need it but it was also of a good fast acting quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need to Source a Tropical Version I have taken this product for some time, and have noticed the same disintegration problem mentioned in other reviews. Apparently the formulation you use readily draws moisture out of the air, and because the binder used to coat the tablets has to be water soluable for the product to work in your stomach, the moisture permeates through the coating, expands the pill contents to where the coating cracks, and ultimately turns the contents of the bottle to mush. You must appreciate the problem, because you put a silica gel pack in each bottle. While this has been sufficient to keep the product intact for me until each bottle is first opened, the Florida humidity overwhelms it and I end up choking down or throwing out at least five pills out of every thirty I buy. I'm sure people in Arizona don't have this problem, but I'd be willing to pay extra for a formulation, coating or packaging that works in humid places.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from L-Carnitine 500mg This product arrived within the time specified and was as expected, the right one. The value is really good as I have done some extensive research and settled on Puritan's Pride. I would highly recommend this company.
Date published: 2012-09-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality. I threw away a brand new bottle this morning. When I opened it all of the pills had combined to form one big mass in the bottle. I've been unhappy with the other bottles of this supplement also, as the outside of the pill is consistently flaking off. I have never had any problems with the other vitamins I purchase from Puritan's Pride, but something is not right with these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weight Control Have just opened the third bottle and the capsules appear to have been wet. They are very crumbly. Other bottles have been fine but question the quality of all. Overall with the other products have not had this type of problem for the many years of ordering from Puritan's Pride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value This product is comparable to more expensive brands and works the same.
Date published: 2012-09-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good health benefits but poor product quality. This product provides the desired health results but the product quality is poor so you don't get best value. You loose at least 5-10% of the contents of each bottle because of broken tablets and flaky coatings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wait and see need to wait and see longer term results, but feeling good so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me! I have been taking these off and on. Going to be more on lately. Seems beneficial.
Date published: 2012-07-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality, poor guarantee... I open two of the bottles to find the tablets falling apart in both. Almost as if they were wet at one time. The product was not usable. At only $10.00 for the two bottles, it was not worth it to me to return both bottles for a refund as stated in the web site. The cost of $2.75 for postage, .60 for the envelope plus the cost of gas and time to and from the Post Office... All of that and maybe a net return of $3.00. This site should have a policy for good customers to have a "no questions asked" refund on products that are not good without having to return the bottles and product..
