ALCAR
Q: What is the difference between L-Carnitine and Acetyl L Carnitine?
A: To answer in the most simplest terms it basically boils down to this: They are both cousins to each other. L-Carnitine works better in your body, cells and gives your body energy.

Creatine
Q: Is your Creatine Micronized?

Q: What is the mesh size?
A: 200 mesh

Q: What is the difference between L-Carnitine and Acetyl L Carnitine?
A: To answer in the most simplest terms it basically boils down to this: They are both cousins to each other. L-Carnitine works better in your body, cells and gives your body energy. Acetyl-l-Carnitine has a significantly more noticeable effect on the mind than L-Carnitine and provides more mental energy.

A: About 5 grams of protein.

Q: What Spirulina methods are used for your Spirulina?
A: Both of our Spirulina's are "wild strain". We not sure of the exact process that's used as we are not privy to all of that information but it's a freezing and thawing method.

Most asked General Questions:

Kosher?
Q: Are your products Kosher?
A: All of our products are registered with Star-K Kosher Certification and signed off by Rabbi Eliyahu Shuman Director of Supervision. We are certified and effective through 2016 until our next testing and renewal date.
Vegetarian/Vegan?

Q: Are your supplements Vegan? Non-GMO?
A: Yes, all of our products are vegan and non-GMO.

Tracking Numbers
Q: Why can't I track my international package after it ships from the US?
A: What happens is the US scans their packages at each stop as it travels across the country. As it leaves the country, it is scanned. The problem is that a lot of countries do not scan the barcode on the packages as they comes into their country or at each stop until it's delivered. The packages spend a ton of time waiting to clear Customs and then once that happens, it can be delivered to you quickly. We are all in the dark until then and it's just a waiting game. I wish there were an easier way to track exactly where the international packages are.

Erectile Dysfunction
Q: I have ED and haven't had an erection in years. What can help?
A: If you have ED and are having difficulties, you might need something stronger like our AAKG or our L-Carnitine. You may not be getting enough Nitric Oxide which will cause your blood vessels to dilate which will increase blood flow.
