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.
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.

Acetyl L-Carnitine (Alcar) Reviews
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.
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.
Havent noticed any change since taking the product. Train 6 days a week and eat very clean. There was a slight increase in body temp. In the first week but that's was about it. No weight loss or cutting for me on this one.
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.
I just mix the required dose in a glass of water and drink it
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.
Great value for the product. The taste takes a bit to get used of.
