so I have been taking ALCAR for about two weeks ago at for week 1 4g a day at week two 8g a day, still haven't really noticed anything yet... can I start doing like 16g a day? are there any sides with that high of a dose, is it pointless? input?
what are you using it for? e.g. what are the effects you desire from ALCAR?
YES and ANTI-OXIDENT!!!!!
USPlabs Product Educator. I'm here to help you!
To help aid in fat loss, and improve that great sense of well being... I understand it's hard to feel the fat loss, but it would be nice to feel/notice some of the other sides of alcar.
btw at 200mg, 3-4times a day.
i'm not sure about sides from a higher dosage, but if you are using it to aid in fat loss i'm surprised you haven't felt results; i take just 5g a day and it is noticable. maybe you just need to give it more time.
gotca, its just I've never felt that warming sensation ALCAR is reported to give from the redirection of fat into the mitocondria.
na-rala isn't taken really for glucose disposal I really just take it for the super antiox properties. I was just figuring because I'm so active, that it takes more for me to know the difference. does that make sense?
I used it for two years strait 2005-2007.
Alcar enhances testosterone metabolism , not production. also sperm count. I feel the difference when i use L-carnitine. its subtle energy effects. i love it and when i can afford it I use it. it helps with energy expenditure. I think it effcts my libido(in on regular l carnitinenow a days- 2 grams)
I used three grams per day when I needed an added boost I would do six grams. it should be building up in your system doing that loading protocol.
Well carnitine is reccomended by some as a treatment for an overactive thyroid. Some say that it should be avoided by people who don't exactly have the highest thyroid levels(many people in the slow metabolism community). In my personal experience, that warmiong sensation of burning more fat was felt in the beginning, but now I could take a big dose of ALCAR, and it will actually make me tired.
Well, I barely got into it before the negative sides kicked in. I wasn't even useing it everyday either. I guess everyone is different.
I've never had any sort of a warming sensation with ALCAR. I'm not sold on any sort of fat burning properties with it, but there's plenty of opinions that disagree in that regard.
When I take it on an empty stomach, 1.5 -2g per dose seems to give a nice alert/awake feeling. Is it possible that you might need to take it on an empty stomach if you're looking for immediate effects? I also feel that it has nice synergy with tyrosine for focus and a bit of mood enhancement.
If you order large bulk tubs of Alcar like 1kg tubs put some of it in smaller containers. I dont know the mechanism but if I use a larger tub and open it 2 times a day for like 6 months the Alcar loses effectiveness, it also loses its strong smell. I've tossed away half a container like 2 times already because of this.
WOW! Alcar overdose! no need to take that much. 1,000-1,500mg a day should be sufficient in divided doses. I can only imagine the level of tingles I would get taking that much at once!
“Lord, whom shall we go away to? You have sayings of everlasting life"- John 6:68
WHAT has science offered?
Hmm, been taking 1/2 tsp twice per day for about 1-2 weeks now and no tingles whatsoever
I dunno if there's any sort of cumulative effect yet, btw. I suppose I'll keep it going at least for 6-8 weeks to see if I find there's any results other than a real mild temporary mood/focus boost.
i got the kilo of ALCAR and have been take it for about 5 weeks at 2-3 grams a day in divided doses with green tea ext and vitamin c. good idea to take it up to maybe like 5-6 gram a day?
