Can you take too much Alcar?

  1. Can you take too much Alcar?


    I am running an uncoupler so added FFA transportation is very beneficial for me right now.

    Would 2.8g of ALCAR 3-4 times a day be dangerous?


  2. In general, L-carnitine appears to be well tolerated; toxic effects related to L-carnitine overdose have not been reported. L-carnitine supplementation may cause mild gastrointestinal symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Supplements providing more than 3,000 mg/day may cause a "fishy" body odor. Acetyl-L-carnitine has been reported to increase agitation in some Alzheimer's disease patients and to increase seizure frequency and/or severity in some individuals with seizure disorders (95). Only the L-isomer of carnitine is biologically active, and the D-isomer may actually compete with L-carnitine for absorption and transport, thereby increasing the risk of L-carnitine deficiency (3). Supplements containing a mixture of the D- and L-isomers (D,L-carnitine) have been associated with muscle weakness in patients with kidney disease. Controlled studies examining the safety of L-carnitine supplementation in pregnant and breastfeeding women are lacking (95).
    I would assume the same would apply to ALCAR.

  4. im taking 5g a day and i havent seen any sides if that helps
    For me, the action IS the juice.

  5. Learned more since I posted this:

    Apparently carnitines deplete choline and plcar is better for FFA transportation anyway.
