Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) Capsules
- 100% Pure ALCAR
- Performance & cognitive benefits
- Effectively crosses the blood-brain barrier
Acetyl-L-Carnitine Powder (sometimes shortened to ALCAR) is a type of L-Carnitine that has been acetylized. It is naturally produced in the body and is derived from the two essential amino acids, Methionine and Lysine.
Due to the association that ALCAR has with the specific acetyl group that it belongs to, it is known for the great variety of benefits it provides related to overall mental health. It is also an antioxidant.

I was very excited to find this product as it is pure ALCAR in capsule form. With just about every other brand you will find they will include additives like rice flour, titanium dioxide, and magnesium stearate. The quality is also very good, I have been taking ALCAR on and off for about 3 years and this is the best one I have found so far!*
On 7/24/2016 Dalton said...
I love this stuff! Life is better with 3-4 grams ALCAR every day. This is the best place to buy it, too. Cost is low due to no advertising and the product is pure and potent. Bulk Supps is the best.*

I'm only a bit over a week into my supply, but 2x/day (morning and mid-afternoon) usage of ALCAR seems to provide more clarity and leaves me feeling more cognisant overall versus a comparable product from Onnit.*

This is a great energy increasing and fat burning supplement. I highly recommend!*
On 5/1/2016 Connor said...
I noticed nothing from taking these. Reading others reviews I hoped they might help me feel more clear headed, or more energy. Maybe I just don't need L-carnitine. I do love this company and repeat buy other products.*
On 2/14/2016 mindy said...
Ive only been taking this supplement for a week, but I can already tell that I am more clear headed. I will definitely continue to take them.*

This product seems to be more potent than expected and is packaged perfectly as no moisture ever made the product sticky which seems to happen with this product. The price is right and shipped to my door fast!*
On 9/18/2015 Eric said...
Shipping was extremely fast and packaged nicely as well. I use it to put in my own fat burner recipe as a main ingredient. It's scientifically proven to aid in fat burning.*

In this review about Acetyl L-Carnitine or ALCAR, in comparison with other supplements that I've tried, ALCAR works the best. In the first couple of weeks taking two to three capsules throughout the day before that morning workout. Just within the first couple of weeks I've notice that half of day and sometimes a whole day went by without food.
Great product Great results now second order.*

Up til now I was buying from other sources with a lower quality and higher prices.I am lucky to find this site.*
On 5/6/2015 alakesh mitra said...
I've been taking this supplement for the past 3 weeks and am impressed with the energy boost. I've been eating more, working out the same amount and losing weight. The only side effect I've noticed is it keeps you up if you take it late at night. I've noticed a difference in the intensity of my workouts, seem to be getting better the past few weeks. Inexpensive and effective.*

Update 6/12/14: L-Carnitine is for the heart. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is for the brain. The acetyl group makes acetyl-l-carnitine much more water soluble and much more able to pass through the blood brain barrier. The main function of both carnitines is to transport long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria and metabolize them for energy production.
There are four so-called "mitochondrial targeting nutrients" necessary to crank up mitochondrial health and performance. These are:
3. alpha lipoic acid in a 100:1 ratio to biotin (50:1 if using R-fraction ALA),
4. Niacin (plus all the other B-vitamins, especially vitamin B-5).
I have been running HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) sprints for almost the last two years. I was running at the maximum recommended intensity of eight all-out sprints for 30 seconds three times a week.
About six months ago I received the first of the BulkSupplements materials including both l-carnitine and acetyl-l-carnitine. Soon I was running 50-second sprints, eight of them, seven days a week.
But a got sick three times early this year with bad colds, each one lasting over two weeks. I figured it was because I was exercising too hard, suppressing my immune system for too long. All that open-mouthed gasping can lead to a dry throat - and infection. So, I reduced to only five 50-second sprints seven days a week, breathing through my nose the entire time. What an improvement - no more colds. Then, timing myself with a watch, I was able to reduce the elapsed time in these sprints from 54 to 43 seconds (keeping the distance run the same). I can do this with or without caffeine. Whatever pains I had in my chest, or in my legs, no longer appear.
