    My son has ADHD and epilepsy and this was mentioned in passing by his psychiatrist as a non-stimulant option for increasing focus and cognition. However, after less than a week of one capsule a day, it began triggering his seizures. Web MD warns about this but I didn't find this beforehand. Please take this warning seriously.

    Improved my brain to voice connection after a 3-2012 stroke. I was able to talk without a 1 second delay when speaking.

    I started this supplement because it was recommended by a friend to lessen the craving for a cigarette. Instead, it has helped with my vitiligo. My pigment has returned quite a bit on my hands. I've been using this supplement for almost a year and I have gained back about 40 percent of my pigment back.

    As a graduate student taking neuroscience I began taking A-L-C to enhance cognition but curiously, main effect I discovered was that when exercising, I might still get tired as before but I could continue to do so without feeling the desire to stop; odd to describe. This was apparent after only a few days. I never noted any untoward effects using 3g/day in three doses. Your mileage may vary.
