There is a global shortage of the amino acid Acetyl L Carnitine! Due to the limited supply, there have been significant price increases in sourcing the product.

Here at Bulk Nutrients we always try to absorb price changes where we can, however such a significant rise in costs has meant we need to increase the price of this product.

Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) Powder

Burn fat and improve cognitive ability

A staple for your fat burning stack! Acetyl L-Carnitine may help you reach your fat loss goals. Perfect to take before a cardio session or during a cut for the boost you're after!

Acetyl L-Carnitine is an acetylated version of Carnitine which may help supply the brain with energy by improving energetics in the mitochondrion, the cell’s energy generator.

The most effective Carnitine

At Bulk Nutrients we only use pure, pharmaceutical grade Acetyl L-Carnitine which is reportedly the most effective form of Carnitine and is said to alleviate the effects of aging and disease on mitochondria, while also increasing the potential to burn fat.

In clinical studies Acetyl L-Carnitine has been shown 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 L-Carnitine is also available in capsulated form. Shop for convenient capsules today!


It is recommend that Acetyl L-Carnitine be used twice a day directly before meals for those looking to lose weight. A typical dose of Acetyl L-Carnitine is between 500mg and 2g per day.

A flat spoonful of the 5ml scoop included provides 3.4g of Acetyl L-Carnitine.

As the serve is very small, we recommend using microscales when dosing.

    Great product, but arrives with clumps

    Posted by Anthony on Dec 10, 2018

    I take this product daily for a muscular disease and find since I started taking it daily my incidence of muscle cramping has lessened greatly. My only gripe is each time I receive a new packet a lot of the product is clumped (possibly from moisture) . I wonder if the product came in a plastic air tight tub it may reduce this occurrence?

    Vinegar and rotten eggs had a baby and made this. Don’t mix it with your other supplements, it will destroy the taste. Take it as a shot and the taste disappears super fast.

    Aside from the taste, it’s a great product... if you don’t want to deal with the taste grab the l-carnitine instead.

    Tastes ok and dissolves easy

    Posted by Claire on Nov 16, 2018

    Taste is bitter but easy enough to drink. I’ve dropped about 2 kg since using it and I’ve noticed more energy especially at the gym.

    No real difference since taking this product. I train 6 days a week and eat very clean. Only noticed a slight body temp. Increase in the first week. That's about it. No weight loss or shredding for me.

    I like the taste and dissolves easy.

    Posted by James Coles on Oct 11, 2018

    The product is let down a little by the scoop so i'll need to find a scale to measure my dosages, otherwise it's 5 stars for quality.

    Bit of a weird one this one - everyone is right, the taste is kinda rank - like nothing anything i have ever tasted before but you actually get over/used to it pretty quickly.
