Tried a few things trying to cut the body fat down. Diet and Intermitent Fasting helped but reached a level about 16-18% that wouldn't shift. Read an article about this product and was on offer so gave it a try. Withing a few weeks started to drop bodyfat again and looking a bit more vascular. Now about a 8 weeks later down to about 12% with some weight gain as well so not losing muscle mass. and strength back on the up. Best taken after a meal with carbs.Goes Well With:Carbs

Good value for money - product is difficult to swallow though and tablets are very big. They are effective though.

As with previous reviews, surprised by the size of the tablets but very good price for 45 servings of 1g. I bought 2 of the product and take 4 tabs (2g) at 11am and then 8 tablets (4g) about a hour before training. This exceeds the recommended dose (2 tablets, 1 -2 times per day) but a lot of other research suggests a higher dose before training as this improves the effectiveness of L-Carnitine. Definitely helped with fat loss and muscle maintenance when on a HIT training regime with cardio twice per week (relatively high protein diet). Does leave a slight weird taste in the mouth for about 30-45 mins after taking but nothing too significant.

I have been cutting for quite a few months now on a low carb diet, anybody that has been low carb before knows that it leaves you feeling quite tired and depleted throughout the day. This product makes me feel like i have much more energy which is probably due to increased fat being broken down to release energy. I was stuck at about 80Kg for a month but after taking this product for 2 weeks i am now down to 79Kg. Whether this is due to the placebo effect I don't know all i know is that I'm going to continue taking this product for the foreseeable future. On a side note I've noticed people commenting on the taste, people must understand that this is a pill like any other, it isn't supposed to taste great and in my opinion it is no different to taking a paracetamol. To some it up, this is a product well worth getting while on a low carb diet. Goes Well With:Low carb diet. Omega-3. Protein.
Seen much better results after start taking the powder instead of the capsules. The capsules crumble a lot and get messy really easy.Goes Well With:water
Tablets are a little big but that's just part of the it i guess. Great product
Pretty good, feel like don't retain as much water while on these. Only thing negative I'd say is that current batch pills seem to be bigger and don't swallow as easily.Goes Well With:Impact whey
Feel anything. take before cardio but pretty sur it does something like my doc told me :) But gellule too larger than before :(
Tablets worked very well and seemed to aid in my weight loss when going to the gym. Although the tablet are quite large I found them fairly easy to swallow and faced no real trouble.
These tablets are great, yes there the biggest tablet I've ever seen in my life!, but there a quality product. I've noticed a difference and I've only been on them a week! honestly I am shredding anyway but these have helped me massively. Bundles of energy and improved vascularity which proves its shifting some body fat! Highly recommended, but be warned if I was as big as these tablets I would be a professional body builder!.Goes Well With:Water! and Alpha men multi vitamins.
Quite big to swallow, but much easier and nicer than the powdered form.Goes Well With:Coffee, BCAA's (on an empty stomach)
Great product I´ve been using it for years in caps but MP´s tablets are better because I don´t have to swallow so many caps and the price is good!!!Goes Well With:Taurine, Omega-3
I haven't seen much change in BF%, Muscle% or weight but then again i have only been using this product a month. I am probably one of the unlucky few this product doesn't work for as looking at other reviews on various other sites this is a product to swear by. I will continue to use this product but if I see no difference then I won't be buying another batch.Goes Well With:Any drink
So far I haven't felt much change to my body, but there are still some changes, for example I'm starting to feel a little leaner, and vascularity is definatly increasing as my body fat drops, but hopefully when the product is finished I will be much leaner than before taking this product, and I would definatly advise people to try this product, as it allows you to keep bulk a lot leaner than without it, and stops you from putting fat mass on instead of muscle mass Goes Well With:Impact whey
I read about these and the data suggests that these are as good as CLA for burning fat, so thought to try them. My diet isn't great at the moment (exam eating) but I'm popping these, the CLA and Omega-3 tabs with meals, and somehow I'm still losing weight. Much slower than with exercise and good eating, when I get back into the gym and eating clean I'm expecting to see rapid results. Taste isn't great but just chug them, no need to suck them like Werther's Originals. Goes Well With:CLA, Omega-3 (seriously, look into omega 3 and carnitine)
Really good job well priced and quick delivery
Research from an Australian university shows that people who have suffered polio do not naturally make L Carnitine. I had polio and I don't want to muscle-build, pump iron or run marathons - just try to live as normal a life as possible So I take the tablets daily. I have considerably higher energy levels as a result. Some polio sufferers gain nothing from the tablets. Acetyl L carnitine does nothing for me. Don't understand the science behind that , but it's the case for me.
Discovered Carnitine to assists the body to burn fat for energy.. Does work, but don't expect IMMEDIATE results. Dependent on size before; Results WILL happen but bare in mind Continuity.. Goes Well With:Omega 3
Great product... have more mental and physical energy. Tried Holland and Barrett once, no where near as good as Myprotein version. Highly recommended.
I feel more strong. I will keep taking this supplement. I take 2 x 2 daily.Goes Well With:water
An excellent product easy to take with no bad taste after taking unlike other products on market
It seems that this do works. Like that when I work out with it, usually I won't sweat when doing things like weight, but after using this, I start to sweat.
Great product and great value for money, seeing great results after just a few weeks definitely will be purchasing it again.Goes Well With:Best with water to rehydrate and lose weight
I do not think it easy to tell with this particular product how effective it actually is.Goes Well With:Don't know.
I've been taking these for a while to support a hectic lifestyle mixing work as a teacher, being mum to two small children and training for a few half marathons. I've done much less in the past without supplements and I am convinced that they have helped me maintain my routines, continue to improve in my training and stay relatively well and pretty much injury free. I'm no sports scientist but in my humble opinion they are worth giving a go.Goes Well With:L-glutamine and mega green tea
L Carnitine has always been a staple product for me and this stuff is great and a bargain compared to other companies! Will definitely buy againGoes Well With:Water
I got this because I was already placing an order for whey and was low on my carnitine (I was using Holland&Barrett). This one tastes disgusting! There is no coating whatsoever so even if you swallow it quickly you get a very acidic taste in your mouth. Anything you eat after that will taste acidic. I wish it really were unflavoured. I'm not happy at all...
Pretty effective, noticed I had a lot more energy while working out.
I'm really impressed with these L Carnitine, at a great price too! I've lost quite a bit of fat over the last few weeks (more than usual) so I'm convinced it's due to adding these into my diet. Obviously you have to train and eat a good diet but they're a great addition. Very impressed, will buy again. Goes Well With:CLA, Omega3, Thermopure, Water, Good diet and exercise
I haven't noticed any change in my weight loss rate yet. I've been using them for about 10 days so there is time. The tablets are not the best to take, but its not a big deal. Tablets mean I can't really go beyond neutral for taste etc.Goes Well With:Glass of water
I don't sense any bad taste when the L Carnitine is taken with water. I bought it to take with CLA as these were the two main ingredients on a recommended product and I'm really noticing the difference. It helps that Myprotein are super efficient with deliveries. Goes Well With:CLA and thermopure
L Carnitine gives you an energy boost and lots of sweat during the training if I take 1 pill 30 minutes prior to my weight training. I eat healthily and L Carnitine actually does help to get rid of fat! The negative effects (in my case) take place if I add one more pill (and take it after a workout). The next few/several days my body feels totally destructive (two times this happened to me after taking 2 pills per day).
Been taking it for a few week now and nothing seems to be happening when I cut I take 30 minutes before my main meal and when building muscle I take it before and after the gym. It isn't very good in my opinion.Goes Well With:water
I am very happy using this product. Highly recommend it and will buy it again.
I have been using L Carnitine on and off for years now, and I have to say, I have noticed the difference between when I haven't been using it and when I have. I will be continuing using it from now on, and I will definitely be buying it from MyProtein again, as I am always very happy with the price and the quality.
I feel more alert after taking L Carnitine and find it easier to concentrate. I also feel like I have additional energy.
L Carnitine is awesome, it's great to use before training. Of course it's great for both women and men. This has a great taste.
I've only started using it, so can't comment on effectiveness, but it tastes all right...
I can't believe how fast acting this product is. I have a ridiculous amount of energy that is noticible by myself and everyone around me. I also stack this with 5htp for better results but four of these a day and I'm buzzing until bed time.Goes Well With:5htp
I started taking L Carnitine in an attempt to shift a bit of extra weight alongside my exercise routine. I'm only two weeks in and there's been no real change, but it's still early days. I will see how it goes.Goes Well With:Cold water
L Carnitine is a great product.Goes Well With:Water
This L Carnitine is an excellent product with a great taste. It's not to big to swallow exelent service Goes Well With: chocolate protein before a morning gym session.
This is my second batch of L Carnitine. I'm on a low carb diet and these are definitely helping to strip the fat off. I would highly recommend it and it's at a very good price.
L Carnitine is one of my favourite MyProtein products. It's a great pick-me-up and mental alertness booster. I finished my first 90 and bought 180 straight away.
L Carnitine is an excellent product.
Brilliant product. absolutely love it. It has helped me lose a lot of weight at the same time as I was trying to build more muscle and it still worked. L Carnitine is a great product. I would recommend it to anyoneGoes Well With:Weight gainers and muscle building supplements.
I was looking for a new supplier of L-Carnitine and found this company on the net it was 1 a better price 2 bigger quantity and 3 a fast delivery all in all beter all round so would recommend this supplier
I used to use many different types of L-C's, but i can tell you: this one is really effective and extremly helpfull not just for my diet, even my recovery time is shorter as well! Im so satisfied with this lovely ass kickin product!Goes Well With: If you want to lose weight with green tea extract goes well.
L Carnitine works really well with a balanced diet and other supplements. They're easy to swallow, and I'm seeing a big improvement of body fat loss within 2 weeks of using them. They're highly recommended!Goes Well With:CLA, green tea, cod liver oil
L Carnitine was recommended to me by a personal trainer. I have so far lost 11 pounds in 2 months. Although i have no proof it if because of these tablets. I go to the gym 3 times a week for 2 hours at a time, and I eat reasonably healthy. If you are looking at them for weight loss, I'd probably say try dieting with them and some kind of work out. In terms of performance they are great. I take them half hour before I go gym and they really help! i also noticed if I am really hungry and take one it suppresses my hunger for about an hour and half which is really handy to stop me snacking on crisps etc. I started by taking 1 a day then slowly stepped it up. I now take 4 a day. I like them so much I've come back for a second tub of them. I would definitely recommend!Goes Well With:Whey Protein Shakes, Green Tea Capsules
This L Carnitine is high quality. It's very good value for money. I highly recommend it before your workout.Goes Well With:Protein bars , protein shake and vitamin b complex
I have this as soon as I wake up in the morning and feel its keeps me full while I get myself to work where I eat breakfast. Also have this before a workout on an empty stomach! Goes Well With:CLA, Thermopure
This L Carnitine is great.
L Carnitine is perfect value for perfect quality! I am really happy that I bought this product!
L Carnitine is perfect value for perfect quality!
I got this L Carnitine for a friend of mine (female). It does what it says, she noticed concentration ups/downs, along with easier fat loss. It's almost tasteless, but smells a bit. It's a nice but not essential supplement, overall.
I always take L Carnitine when I'm cutting up, no taste just swallow the thing.
L Carnitine is a good product.
L Carnitine has to be used for at least 3 months before you start to see any benefits, so people coming on and saying they can see/feel benefits after a week are talking rubbish! Used properly it can be an awesome supplement with so many benefits. This is a must have!
After reading peoples reviews for this product I thought this is what I need. After 3 days of taking them I have never experienced such a bad migraine and throwing up. Clearly my body just couldn't take to them but it seems to work for others!
This L Carnitine worked quite well, mixed it with BCAA tablets at the beginning, had my stomach in a twist and was finding it hard to hold down my food after working out in the morning but eventually got used to it!
I'm really happy with this L Carnitine, I will be purchasing it again.
Currently using L Carnitine whilst I am cutting in the combination with Thermopure and I feel there has been a good result. I generally feel more energetic and also leaner. Pills are slightly big, but they aren't exactly difficult to swallowGoes Well With:Thermopure
Started taking this recently at the recommended dosage of 2 tablets 30mins before meals. It's made my blood sugar drop considerably shortly after and suffer from a hypoglycemic reaction, not very pleasant. Going try lowering the dosage and see how I react.
I've been taking L Carnitine now for two weeks leading up to the London marathon and I have noticed a difference in energy and waist size. It's too early to say yet if the results will be long term but I will definitely not be giving up.
I cannot shout loud enough about how effective this amino acid is for weight loss and for energy boost. I have battled with my weight all my life even though I am fairly active. My mass loss has been quite remarkable from 18st to 11.5 over a 12 month period. I am often remarked upon on how my body shape has completely changed. Having done my home work this amino acid needs to be taken along with Omega 3 for it to work to it's potential. I wish I discovered this years ago.Goes Well With:Omega 3, CLA.
Fast delivery. I love L Carnitine, I'm using it for weight loss, highly recommend.
I've not seen too much of a difference with L Carnitine, but they don't taste bad and go down well. I've been doing a much larger physical regime and I have seen body changes so I can only believe the tablets are helping.
Living in Denmark, it's pretty cold right now, so I do a lot of spinning. After starting with L-Carnetine, I have improved my watt and I feel stronger in my legs.
L Carnitine is very good and high quality, it works how I expected.
I've been using L Carnitine for roughly two weeks now, and I can safely say that when coupled with a proper diet, weight training routine and cardio, it works fantastically! It's definitely one of the best fat burning products out there. The only problem I would address is the sharp taste before swallowing, but other than that I will determinately be using these again!Goes Well With:Mega Green Tea Extract and Fish oils
Very easy to take, early days yet but beginning to see results.
I kept an open mind when purchasing a tub of 90 tabs but after approximately 4 weeks usage, I did not hesitate in buying another 90 tabs! Before taking this product I suffered from broken sleep, lack of sleep and general lethargy throughout the day (for years). My mental alertness was affected so I'd struggle through the day at work. During training I would be constantly yawning and I felt sluggish. I couldn't finish off my reps and just wasn't focused. It did take some time for me to feel the effects of the Carnitine. After approximately 3 weeks usage I started to notice some changes. I found myself sleeping better despite some vivid dreams. After 7 weeks I felt more alert and I felt generally more focused throughout the day. For me this was all that I needed to convince myself of its effectiveness, placebo effect or not. I have to stress that I have been taking this in conjunction with Alpha Men (4 tabs a day) everyday. I also take Essential Amino Acids (unflavoured) with Creapure (both of these supplements only on days of training). Price is fair and affordable, especially for 4 weeks supply.. although it has to be noted that I am no expert on the typical going price for this supplement elsewhere. On a final note I find the tabs easy to swallow, with water of course and I will purchase another 90 tabs once my tub runs out. All-in-all this is a very good product! Goes Well With:Alpha Men
I started using L Carnitine recently, but I already feel the effect. I take them as recommended, 3 times a day, 2 capsules every time (of which, 2 are about half an hour before training). The effect is very good, I can feel it well. At gym trainings, I have more energy and can keep the intensity for a longer period of time. At sports, I can feel the extra endurance. In all cases, I have more energy which allows me not only to go stronger for longer, but also to have enough energy to keep the mental focus.
L Carnitine is a great product, you feel energised and you don't feel like snacking. I do 2 to 6 pills a day but usually I'm fine with 4. Plus the value for money is great with myprotein.com if you compare it to the high street. Goes Well With:.... cardio weights
2 of these L Carnitine on an empty stomach 30 minutes before breakfast seems to be aiding my weight loss. The taste is a bit sharp when you put them in your mouth but nothing that is going to make you spit them out. Goes Well With:Cla, thermo extreme, omega 3
"very good for cutting up, took for 2 weeks now, five before training very good energy boost !"
I have been taking 2 L Carnitine tablets 3 times a day for the past 3 weeks and have found it a useful addition to my training. About 30 mins after taking i do feel a subtle but noticeable increase in energy levels lasting around 30-60 mins and according to my (highly inaccurate) weighing scales my body fat has dropped by around 1% but when starting at around 9-11% (now between 8-10%) that is a very good reduction. If you train cardio hard and often i think it can help to boost your energy and fat burning potential but do NOT think it will loose weight for you or give you a pre-workout buzz it just gives an extra 5% ontop of the effort you put in already.
"Been taking these for a while... I have to say it is a good product, you can feel results when combined with a good fat burning training and a smart diet... Just have to take it with food as in an empty stomach It makes me feel nauseous. But good supplement overall.."
"I started taking this product about 9 months ago and I can say that it is truly incredible. I have to confess that I do not take it regularly, I only consume these when I have a tub to hand. However that weight is long gone but thats not the best bit. L Carnitine should not just be taken by someone who is looking to loose weight but by EVERYONE! They have obvious health benefits and weight loss potential but I found that they also drastically increase energy levels. I would take these before a game of rugby or a hard gym session and they would see me through what would be an otherwise excruciating amount of exercise with ease. Do not doubt this product just try it, Honestly."
"I have noticed a boost in energy when taking these before my run and/or the gym so I would definitely recommend them. However, the size of these tablets always make me gag and find them really difficult to swallow. Although I find them effective, I just want to throw them away for some smaller, easily digestible capsules. Perhaps I will cut them up into 1/2s but that means I need to swallow 4x. Can we get capsules? I would pay more just to be able to swallow them without gagging."
Just finished taking a load of these and found the product to be good when taken with other MP supplements. I would'nt say the product had me buzzing or ripped when I took it alone along with a healthy diet but when I acompanied it with my other sups it was a good addition to everything I was taking. Would recommd this product as part of a package if you looking to burn fat or just gain a little energy boost through out the day with your main pre training meals.
"I tried using these during the day and following the instructions on the bottle however I didn't feel much difference, but I read a suggestion that said take 2 tabs an hour before the gym and it was the way forward for me. I felt as though I had a lot more energy and was just completely pumped. I'd give them a blast, 7 quid for them why not throw them in if your buying some CLA tabs and other stuff thats what i did and totally worth it"
Highly recommended gives you a good boost during training!!
"I have noticed some fat loss results although to see better results I recommend doubling up with the Green Tea Extract. It is not as effective as the Acetyl L-Carnitine powder, however it gives me a nice energy boost, is alot more bearable to take, and does not play as much havok with my digestive system"
"itz a good acetyl l carnitine product-not the best but include the price and itz worth it.\ni find if i just use 1 capsule as 1 serving regulary, 2-3 times per day, then i dont tend to put any fat on,no matter wat i eat,not fried food obveisly.\nbut if i hav the recommended 2 capsules per serving 2-3 times per day then i do lose fat.\ni alwayz hav a serving b4 bed 1 or 2 capsules."
"It works a little, but I think you have to take other fat loss supplements with it to see the benefit."
"i like this its great for fat loss uptake and so preping my body for my of course :P :P heavy lifting ) \nafter taking this product for 2 consecutive courses i did notice good fat loss\nim currently bundling this product with\nCLA\nGreen tea extract\ncaffiene\nand thobromine\nmy energy is skyrocketed and im always hyper but my sleep is not affected atall \n4 stars for this product however, id like to see a slightly bigger bottle with more L Carnatine pills in it, if happily pay plenty extra for this as its CHEAP but its the postage thats busting ma b*lls\n\nD"
