Acetyl L Carnitine (ALCAR) 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.
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.
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.

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. Goes Well With:The bin when I get to 90kg
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'm using it for cognitive purposes, it works as its supposed to and is cheap. very good. i rated 4/5 because it has builded a lot of "rocks" maybe it was too long stored
ALCAR has a strong sour taste (like lemon juice) which I personally like, but the quantities are small, so not a big deal. A really well absorbed version of carnitine that also crosses the blood brain barrier as a bonus.Goes Well With:Fruity sour stuff or water if you like sour tangy tastes.
ive used this product before, it breaks down fat so you see more lean muscle. i usually see a difference in myself within two weeks. very effective, if you want to lose a couple of pounds and see more definition in your muscles. Great product!
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
was looking for a new product to aid with a weight cut after abit if research decided to try carnitine , overall seems to be working well along with a good diet plan , fat loss has increased since started taking it so it's a winner with me , taste not the best but then that has never been important to me just a case of wether something works or not and this product works
Mixes well, don't notice the taste as it is added to juice. Since taking I definitely feel more alert have more energy.Goes Well With:Anything
Great product, easy to mix and results obtained in just one week of usage. Also feeling a great pump while working out and energy levels are higher during the day. I also recover quicker from heavy workouts.Goes Well With:ultimate whey
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.Goes Well With:guarana, l theanine
Not sure if I have the right scoop in me bag of carnitine it's a tiny scoop 0.5 is it right
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 )"
The product is pretty good I'm seeing my abs more and it think it works. Just drop it in your juice or protein shake and give it a good mix. Wish this came in pill form.Goes Well With:Protein shake.
I would like to see less packaging for small orders be a bit more world friendly. "Chemical Free" plastic water bottles, supplements containers Otherwise good Plastic is hormone disruptor has been linked to a boatload of issues, such as causing reproductive, immunity, and neurological problems, as well as childhood asthma, metabolic disease, type 2 diabetes, and have the similar shape to the hormone oestrogen. I buy your good products hoping to stay healthy...
Been taking this for a while and the benefits are great. Make sure you take it with some form of carbs. Highly recommend Goes Well With:Vitamin c tablet
been using this for 2 months with volume training ie 8 set and 8 reps, was 93kg lost 10kg.. been eating cheesecake!! once a month!! for treat!Goes Well With:black coffee
Taken as part of my pre and post workout drink
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!!
