Welcome ladies and gentlemen!
I was recently picked to recieve a bottle of SNS (Propionyl L Carnitine- 500mg) to log, and would like to start off by saying THANK YOU SNS! Stand up rep team, stand up products, and on top of that they really know how to thank their customers for their support. So thank you to all who made this log possible.
What is PLCAR?
PLCAR 500: Optimize Performance, Fat Loss, Cognitive Function, & More
PLCAR-500 contains 500 mg of Propionyl per capsule.
Propionyl is an advanced, more bioavailable form of L-Carnitine, and amino acid found in high concentration in human brain, nerve, and liver cells.
Propionyl L-Carnitine is commonly used to help burn fat, improve performance, and enhance recovery. It is also used for stress reduction and cognitive support benefits.
I myself do not have all that much experience with Carnitine products but have recently been researching them a little and am quite intrigued by the theories behind this.
This product seems all around to be something I NEED.
For example, here is a simple return from a WebMD search:
" is used for treating leg pain (intermittent claudication) due to poor blood circulation (peripheral vascular disease, PVD). PVD is often caused by diabetes or “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis). Propionyl-L-carnitine is also used to treat congestive heart failure (CHF).
Men with sexual performance problems (erectile dysfunction, ED) due to diabetes or poor circulation sometimes use propionyl-L-carnitine along with prescription medications. Older men who have symptoms of low testosterone levels sometimes use propionyl-L-carnitine in combination with acetyl-L-carnitine.
The propionyl-L-carnitine/acetyl-L-carnitine combination is also used to treat chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
Healthcare providers give propionyl-L-carnitine intravenously (by IV) for treating PVD and intermittent claudication; to improve wound healing in people with PVD; and to treat heart disease, including congestive heart failure, and chest pain (angina)."
Improved blood circulation, possible prevention of diabetes (which runs in my family), heart health, erectile health, supposed testosterone support, CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME treatment, chest pain treatment?
What guy WOULDN'T want something like this?
I have a feeling I will be using this as one of my staples as long as I can afford it every month and I will DEFINITELY be using it on my next PH cycle.
My MAIN interest in this log will be recovery time, with a minor focus on fat loss. I will do a before/after ab shot for you all if I feel they have changed BF%.
So let's get things started!
I am currently 210 pounds (fluctuates up to 215) at 10-11% bodyfat.
I will be utilizing a 5x5 training split.
Caloric intake will be around 4000-4500 calories on lifting days and ~3500 calories on recovery days, using 1-2 cheat meals a week.
I would prefer not to list every single little detail about my diet and workouts, but I do not mind divulging from time to time if anyone has questions or would care to participate in some advanced discussion.
Current daily supps:
SNS PLCAR 500
NOW Foods Multis (tabs)
AI Sports Post (1/4 bottle remaining)
I will be dropping for accuracy of this log
Will also be running Phytotest and Sustain Alpha. I would be half way through that log by now, but there were some stock issues, and I am already obligated to that log so I will be starting that as soon as I receive it.
If that is a problem please let me know and I can work something out, I haven't taken my first dose of PLCAR yet.
I don't see it being an issue though because I know how test boosters and sustain both effect me.
Anything I left out? Let me know!
Thanks again SNS!!!!
