I only started it now but I think it is a food product. the packaging is nice. good size pill. gives me energy. creatine is good for energy.. good ingredients and no taste. I take it about 15min before my morning fitness workout and think it is benefit. this is a heat product for endurance and I will try it for 2 months. update will follow once I have results. smells very nice even before burning it. but it is very expensive for a candle.
