Acetyl Carnitine (Alcar)
Acetyl Carnitine (ALCAR) Powder
Acetyl Carnitine, an acetylated version of Carnitine base helps supply the brain with energy by improving energetics in the mitochondrion, the cell’s energy generator. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is said to alleviate the effects of aging and disease on mitochondria, while increasing the mitochondria’s potential to burn fat.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (which is reported to be the most effective form of carnitine) has been shown in clinical studies to benefit cognitive ability, memory and mood, however it’s major benefit for those involved in weight training and exercise is that it allows the body to use stored fat for energy more easily, which is somewhat supported in research.
Acetyl Carnitine has been shown to assist in lowering blood glucose and improve blood vessel health, this is particularly so for those with weakened cardiac systems.

I use it before training and gives a lot of energy, so I can perform at 110%. Unfortunately it tastes horrible, so I add it to dissolved multivitamin effervescent tablet with flavour.

Fantastic. I’m probably the only person on earth though that loves the taste

I'm new to using this supplement so I'm still coming to grips with it.
Two things I have learned.
a) Micro scales are a must.
b) It tastes TERRIBLE. Find something to hide it in. Apple juice seems to be a winner.
Time, and more consistency on my part, well tell with this one I'm sure.

I use this product as part of my pre-workout stack, both on and off-season. I find that it helps me increase my fat burning capabilities as Alcar is proven to help transport fat into readily use energy.

I use this sup everyday and have been for the last two months. What a difference it has made with my prep!

Ive been using the product for 2 weeks now and have to say I haven't seen a reduction in my weight. NB: I train every second day

Just got this item and so far I'm happy - hoping for some great results. Tried without the flavor it's not too bad but loads better with the flavoring for sure

Alcar was good
Seals came apart on the choline and the smaller bags had to put them into other containers

I have been using Acetyl Carnitine for 22 weeks, on a low calorie diet 1600 - 1800 per day, using alcar in the morning 2.5g and midday 2.5g in a protien fruit smoothy
I have stripped over 33kg

Using it on advice to help with fat loss now I'm leaner. Seems to be doing what it says it does so I'm happy. The usual good value from Bulk compared to competitors. Do yourself a favour and get some of their BCAA flavouring along with this, because by itself ALCAR tastes pretty nasty.
