Product Overview

What is Acetyl L-Carnitine?

Acetyl L Carnitine (ALCAR) is is created in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It is mainly synthesised in the liver and kidneys and must be transported for use to other tissues in the body. It is found in highest levels in tissues that use fatty acids as the main fuel; for example the skeletal and cardiac muscles.

Who is Acetyl L-Carnitine suitable for?

Acetyl L-Carnitine is ideal for active individuals taking part in regular exercise or anyone looking for an easy-to-consume source of carnitine that can be taken throughout the day.

How to take Acetyl L-Carnitine:

Acetyl L-Carntine should be taken with a healthy balanced diet, whereby it is recommended to consume 1 serving of Acetyl L-Carntine 2-3 times daily with meals for best results.

Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

Product seems to work, gone from 100kg to 94kg in a few weeks. Take it twice a day but it is a chore. The absolute worst thing I have ever tasted! Genuinely tastes like you're swallowing acidic bile.

This product was to help with my fat loss and to support my goals of becoming 18% body fat. I have not been taking it long enough to know a result however it does mix easily! I would recommend having it in a flavour if possible as it doesn't taste the greatest. It's not something that has to be taken in a dread as it is just mixed in with your water bottle for the day! I would recommend!

The item arrived a bit beat up with some marks and skuffs. Other than that, it's a great product. Quite a vinegary taste, so I take it with other things like flavoured BCAAs to hide it.

Goes Well With:

Flavoured BCAAs, chocolate milk/protein shake, apple cider vinegar

I did not take it alone so i can't say anything about stand alone effects. i use it in conjuction with guarana and l-theanine. That where it shines. Much more mental power, much better outlook on life. tastes very sour so take some water after taking it or u risk teeth enamel destruction. Dissolves almost instantly.

guarana, l theanine

This is the best value L-Carnitine I've found anywhere. If you use it you must be aware how it works. It takes many weeks and months to raise Carnitine levels and does not have an instant effect. You must take 80g of carbs with each dose. Google it to check - there are only a few studies but they are compelling and you will have to take it for 3-6 months to see a lasting effect. It is not a quick fix supplement - any instant hit or effect is just plain wrong - placebo effect. A good product at very good value.

Well i did not have a way to measure this so took a tip of a teaspoon 3 times a day and this has really messed with my sleep patterns. For 3 nights i have really had a hard time sleeping. I got some scales and found i was only using about 100 mg per serving !! I will try just a single 200 mg dose in the morning before workout and see if that helps By the way i am a 50 year old farty. maybe that has some impact

"It really works, decided to try this and ordered 100g. Before I had to be very strict what I eat, could gain a few pound easy. Now, I can have something nice like cake, chocolate without gaining. Together with gym, whey protein in 2 month I lost 1 stone, and visibly had lean gains, so it means even more fat lost ! Recommended !!! ( I don't mind taste - for me is ok )"

I think it tastes like baking soda.I can only drink it if i mix it with squash as it's got a real acid after taste to it. So far it has been working amazing for me but I would highly recommend making a batch that has a flavor to it!!!

Goes Well With:

A mix of water and squash - 200ml water with 2 scoops and a dash of squash

Its a good product. You can see results really in not much time. It is also mega cheap, i had to google for three days cause i thought i was taking it wrongly. If taking 3g a day you basically go for a 20€cents a day and you have enough for whole year almost. Perfect!!

The taste is somewhat chemical sour, which isn't bad if mixed with sour drinks. I can't judge the effectivenes yet, but there's enough evidence that keeps me a faithful user.

Flavoured aminos, hmb, beta alanine, citrulline malate.

I bought Acetyl L-Carnitine to supplement my diet as I do not eat meat. I take it once a day. I feel very energized when I take it! Helps my work out as well! Would recommend 100% Some people say its taste is quite bitter, I would say it doesn't really matter. At the end of the day it's the results that matter!

Goes Well With:

Water.
