Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) helps the body produce energy and may help aid in heart function, brain function, muscle movement, and many other body processes. Alcar has been claimed as a superior Amino Acid supplement to L-Carnitine in terms of bioavailability.
While supplementation with Carnitine may increase physical energy, supplementation with Acetyl l-Carnitine has a more immediate mental effect. The mind boosting effect of ALCAR is often noticed within a few hours, or even within an hour. Most people report feeling mentally sharper, having more mental stamina, having more focus and being more alert. Some find ALCAR to help with mild mood enhancement. ALCAR is believed to improve insulin response.

What kind of results can I expect from supplementing with ALCAR?
Who should supplement with ALCAR?
ALCAR is an amino acid (a building block for proteins) that is naturally produced in the body. It helps the body produce energy. Anyone looking for increased energy physical or mental should consider supplementation with ALCAR.
ALCAR has been used for a variety of mental disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, age-related memory loss, late-life depression, thinking problems related to alcoholism, and thinking problems related to Lyme disease. It has also been used for Down syndrome, poor circulation in the brain, cataracts, nerve pain due to diabetes, nerve pain due to drugs used in the treatment of AIDS, and facial paralysis. Some men may consider supplementation for infertility, symptoms of “male menopause” (low testosterone levels due to aging), or a disease of the penis called Peyronie’s disease.
There are many other possible health benefits to supplementing ALCAR, but with little clinical evidence of results at this time those patients should definitely check with a primary physician before supplementation.
What dosage should I take?
As a dietary supplement take 1 scoop (1g) 1-3 times per day. It is not recommended to exceed 3 scoops per day. Most research involving ALCAR has used 500 mg three times per day, though some research has used double this amount. You should consult with your doctor, pharmacist, or nurse about how much ALCAR you should take.
What side effects can I expect?
Users may experience side effects such as; increased appetite, rashes, diarrhea, and a fishy body odor; however ALCAR is noted to be generally safe in doses of 1 to 3g per day. Dosages over 3g per day make side effects more likely.
