Product Overview

What is Acetyl L-Carnitine?

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.

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.

Key Benefits

  • Easy-to-consume
  • 500mg Acetyl L-Carnitine per serving

Add your preferred amount of water or fruit juice into our shaker. Then add 500mg, shake and consume immediately.

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 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...

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

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

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 )"

Everything will be great if you workout hard and take Myprotein supplements.Whey protein is produced during the process that sees milk turned into cheese. It is also found naturally in dairy products, eggs, soy and vegetable proteins but none of these compares in quality to whey protein powder. It also scores highly in providing the branched chain amino acids that are important in the building and retention of muscle.Whey protein is highly favored by bodybuilders because it provides the necessary building blocks to produce the amino acids that the body uses to build lean muscle tissue. Many studies have shown that whey protein contains the perfect combination of amino acids, in just the right concentration for optimal performance in the body. It is also thought that whey protein has a role as an anti-oxidant and immune system builder.It is best taken in powder form mixed in juice or milk, spread throughout the day to maintain a positive nitrogen balance. Serious bodybuilders often consume up to one hundred fifty grams each day but as a rule of thumb, daily protein intake for active trainers can be calculated by taking your weight in pounds and multiplying by one or two. But remember, you need to work out how much protein is taken from food and other sources, and then spread the remaining whey protein balance over the day.Whey protein is a relatively safe supplement but no more than thirty grams of protein should be taken at one sitting as excessive single doses could overload the liver. The safety of whey protein has been well documented in many scientific studies and there is clear proof that taken consistently, coupled with regular exercise, it will result in meaningful muscle gain.

My protein supplements are energy source. No other supplements can beat its results.Protein deficiency and malnutrition (PEM) can lead to variety of ailments including mental retardation and kwashiorkor. Symptoms of kwashiorkor include apathy, diarrhea, inactivity, failure to grow, flaky skin, fatty liver, and edema of the belly and legs. This edema is explained by the action of lipoxygenase on arachidonic acid to form leukotrienes and the normal functioning of proteins in fluid balance and lipoprotein transport.PEM is fairly common worldwide in both children and adults and accounts for six million deaths annually. In the industrialized world, PEM is predominantly seen in hospitals, is associated with disease, or is often found in the elderly. If my review is helpful then you can use mu referral code above.

My protein supplements have more than 5 million customers who are satisfied with the results.Using a protein shake as an occasional meal replacement may help you lose more weight and fat than you would by following a reduced-calorie diet. High-quality proteins are more satiating than either carbohydrates or fats, and they may have the ability to improve the body’s metabolism. Additionally obese women and men lost more fat when they drank two protein shake meal replacements per day and followed a low-calorie diet. Subjects who adhered to the diet without the shakes lost less total body fat and more lean muscle mass. The study did not take nutrient deficiencies or diet balance into account, however. Unless you have approval from your doctor, do not replace more than one meal daily with a protein shake.

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.
