    PLCAR Sourcing


    Now that the Olympics are behind us, has Nutra had any success in sourcing this? I'd love to see it as a Nutra-caps offering, as well as 50% Icariin.

    Haven't heard anything new on this.

    About the 50% Icariin, have you tried the 20% extract? It was the same cost for the active. I heard the 50% didn't sell that well. Did you prefer it b/c it's easier to cap?

    I've been taking the 50% caps from another place. They offer 500mg caps so it's easy for me, which is the bottom line. I would just prefer to spend my $$$ with my extended Np family. Bummer about the PLCAR, though. I hope something opens up.

    Most factories in China are backed up 6+ months. It will be awhile before a lot of bulks are back. We are working on getting our bulk line back up though rest assured.

    There was not a lot of demand for the PLCAR when it was in bulk. And Sam was worried the high price needed for caps would drive people away. Still, we will see if it is something we can get done.

    I think we would be able to source it; I think the price is still slightly elevated. Do you guys want it bad enough?

    I have a cheaper (relatively) source for the PLCAR, but we're not sure if the demand is there to bring it in again...

    I have been hunting for months for a site with a reasonable price and availability on PLCAR.

    PLCAR is for heart and overall production of mitochondria, ALCAR works as nootropic and helps neurotransmitters function better, also used mood enhancement.

    from our resident guru strategic......

    Essentially, all carnitine forms enhance the mitochondrial use of fatty acids. The advanced forms of L-Carnitine, namely, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Propionyl-L-Carnitine, and Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate, are significantly more potent than simple L-Carnitine in terms of fat-loss and anti-aging benefits.

    Acetyl-L-Carnitine produces superior mitochondrial modulation of fatty acids. Dosage recommendation is between 1 000mg and 2 000mg per day.

    Propionyl-L-carnitine is a form of carnitine that has a special affinity for heart muscles, producing potent effects in cardiac and skeletal muscle, producing significant improvements in energy and stamina. Dosage recommendation is around 1 000mg daily.

    Combining the two should produce excellent results. If your budget does not permit this, you might prefer a combination of base L-Carnitine and ALCAR (PLCAR has its key benefit in the cardiovascular realm).

    As you know, ALA co-supplementation is a must, as Alpha Lipoic acid turns out to be a natural co-factor for a mitochondrial enzyme crucial in the break down of fatty acids. This enhances cellular energy efficiency. Furthermore, lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that enhances intracellular levels of vitamin C and glutathione, powerful antioxidants on their own.

    I take ALCAR, love it, and have tried DCP and had noticed considerable endurance gains so count me in for someone who would buy the bulk PLCAR---One question though: How is PLCAR when taken without caps? I have no problem with ALCAR and others so I'd imagine PLCAR would go down fine too.

    Also, I would be interested in trying other Carnitine combinations to see if any noticeable differences are present

    --> (especially this one) L-Carnitine-Arginate and L-Carnitine-Tartarate and L-Carnitine-Fumarate

    Do all NUTRAPLANET bulks have a Certificate of Analysis???
    -Thanks
