I have heard that fluoride is a choline inhibitor. Anyone else heard that? Just another reason for me to drink cleaner water.

Few ALCAR questions
1. If using 750mg caps, should use 2 or 3 daily?
2. Empty stomach, with food?
3. I've read that ALCAR ought to be cycled, is that right?

My girlfriend convinced me to buy a fridge jug purifier, and now I'm spoiled. Tastes soooooooo much better than tap water.Originally Posted by Jordinator

Well, I too love ALCAR and feel the focus enhancing effects pretty acutely, however after a week or so of use it starts to disrupt my sleep patterns pretty badly...which then negates many of the feel-good properties. Racetams do the same, but even worse. Adjusting the dosages doesn't seem to matter. IF this weren't the case I'd be on ALCAR or piracetam a lot more often.

Taking 2 grams of L-Carnitine L-Tartrate makes me smell like fish and I have read about this being a side effect. I was wondering if this is the case with all carnitines and if there was a way to mitigate this side. For example I have read that taking chlorophyll helps.

When do you start to notice effects from ALCAR? I'm only on day 2, but so far 1000mg doses give me incredibly faint headaches and 1500mg is a more noticeable mild headache. First day, I did 1000mg x 2 and this morning I dosed 1500mg (both morning shots were with 200mg SAN Na-R-ALA) and I will skip my PM dose... Course I plan on getting drunk tonight. Golf league night. Maybe I'll put down 750mg-1g anyways. I think I will drop to 500mg x 2 tomorrow and see how that works. Can't say I feel a think, mentally, but I know it will be subtle and may not be right away. I actually have quite a brain fog today... Been thinking of getting back on morning coffee lately... :/ Been off that for about 3 months.
I have read someone else complain of fishy odors with high doses of ALCAR also, but he found out through friends. :/ lol. I believe he was mega dosing though, like 10g/day or something. I have also read Chloropyll can help with odors, but not specifically that. Might be worth a shot. I'd assume it will go away of its own once you stop anyway.

Since my semester is done I will risk this thing of ALCAR I bought that gave me headaches. I think it might be D contaminated, I don't know.
I used another brands ALCAR before with no issues, this NOW one is doing something to my head. I will even take a gram right now actually.

Thanks, I will try that next time. I ended up only taking another 750mg before going out to the course. I'll see if I can tolerate 2g before next week. I'm using Primaforce bulk powder, by the way.

So I'm just ordered so ALCAR, I tried it before and liked it but this thread made me order some more
A couple of questions: should I take it everyday on empty stomach at the same time everyday or only before workouts? And is 1g good to start with?
Thanks guys for starting this thread!

I just added this to my nootropic stack a few days ago and see a HUGE spike in mental energy for 5-6 hours after taking 500mg. For me, it has to be taken on an empty stomach or it takes hours to kick in. If I take it first thing upon waking, I feel it in about 20-30 min and it just wakes my brain up. I stopped drinking coffee for the last 3 days because I just don't need it to get out of ZMA inducing sleep fog. We'll see if that lasts. 2g a day would have me feeling insane. I think this is something you need to experiment with, starting with a low dose and working up, which I would recommend rather than starting so high.
Acetyl L-carnitine 500mg at wake up
Choline (usually alpha-gpc) 300mg
Rhodiola Rosea 120mg 4% rosavin
-all with a fatty meal
I only take the 500mg of alcar in the morning to kick start my self and then I take this little stack again at 2pm. I will feel myself start to wind down around 8-9pm, just in time to shut my mind off for bed in a couple hours. It is perfect and has made such an incredible difference at work and in general when talking to people.
