Been taking 1 gram per day split up into 500mg doses usually taken morning then afternoon. I must say this stuff is outstanding. Gives you an energy boost unlike the boost from caffeine. My mood was also greatly enhanced and I had a greater sense of well-being. I am not seeing the fat repartitioning effects just yet ( I am also taking green tea and r-ala) but I am sure it is a little too subtle for me to see. Overall great product, I will definitely be using this for years to come...Ultradrol Log: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/cycle...pressured.html

Their price is actually pretty decent right now....which is nice when you're dumping down 4-6 grams per day
09-08-2004, 01:50 PM
Ya I plan on using a lot so I got the 500g from Mike...not too bad a price.
09-08-2004, 01:53 PM
It's me favorite supp in the whole world although the claims of fat repartioning et cetera really don't seem to hold much water in the real world. It also seems to get addicting. If I run out for a week or two I seriously crave it until I can dose again. I can feel that first dose oozing into my brain..ahhhh. lol
2grams/day is just right for me.

6 grams a day?!?! How's that feel?Originally Posted by SJA

Why do you have to add ALA in the mix?Originally Posted by SJA

At that price, it's 14.36 cents per gramOriginally Posted by goes4ever
Mike's site sells it for 6.40 cents per gram (getting the 1/2 kilo). Of course this way, you have to cap it yourself or chug it down raw (not reccommended).
It always comes down to price vs. convienience
09-08-2004, 09:01 PM
I am going to be getting the powder soon so I will see how it is to down the powder.

I love 1-2 grams first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I've turned a couple of friends who don't even lift/diet/exercise on to alcar, and they use it regularly. It's also great for weaning off of stims. It's something I'll always take, like a multivitamin or vitamin C.
edit: regarding the powder - I personally love the taste of alcar and crave it. My wife also loves it. My friend likes the taste so much he dumps it in a glass of water to savor the flavor!
09-08-2004, 09:48 PM
Lol I hope I like the flavor that much...I already use enough powders that make me want to gag.

Where did you get the powder?? Is it flavored? I got it from 1fast and it is one of the most putred substances on earth.Originally Posted by intv

I don't mind the taste of ALCAR, but it tends to burn my throat if I don't drink anything afterward.
09-09-2004, 10:50 AM
2grams mixed in 12 ounces of water barely tastes like anything. agree b5 is the most vile tasting **** on earth.

3000g split into three doses throughout the day worked awsome for me.
They were caps so taking it was no prob. Cheap too.
09-19-2004, 12:26 PM
I'd been using 1g per day and saw no effect. Weird because so many people seem to love ALCAR.
09-19-2004, 04:07 PM
Try taking a higher dose.Originally Posted by rrgg
09-19-2004, 05:14 PM
Wow, 3 kilograms per day, eh? hehehOriginally Posted by -2z-
Just kiddin, anyways I take somewhere around 3g per day as well. Have been taking it for well over a year; it's just something I don't notice anymore.
Of course, unless I forget to take it.
09-20-2004, 10:37 AM
all these words like addicting and craving are making me a little worried. Do you guys rely on this stuff once you become used to it, so that missing a dose will make you feel bad? And does the user develop a tolerance?
I'd like to give it a try but any supp that makes me rely on it is not good in my book. Missing a day and feeling like **** sounds a little too addicting IMHO. But like I said I haven't tried it so what's it like?
09-20-2004, 11:38 AM
LOL...oops...yeah..I meant 3g.
Hypo: I don't take it right now because I like to save it for cutting periods. It's a pretty subtle effect, so I don't think it's actually "addictive" per se, but it does seem to create a good mood in about 50-60% of the people that take it. Plus, it helps to use fat for fuel.
09-20-2004, 11:43 AM
I don't find it addictin and I don't feel bad when I miss a dose.
09-22-2004, 09:12 PM
Same here. I finished my 75 gram bottle in about 4 weeks, and I never felt a thing.Originally Posted by rrgg

I think the effect is nearly not noticable,but you can get used to it,cause there is an effect and no sides.-that´s how a good supplement should work,and you shouldn´t expect more.
A great addition could be Pyruvate-i used to take.It´s a strong anti.ox. and helps in the Krebs-cycle.

Fastflight, I was talking about ALCAR increasing energy levels. I didn't see that.Originally Posted by Fastflight
I think you're talking about fat reduction. Anarchy stack seems to work for me, so yes I think I've seen that effect.
09-23-2004, 05:42 PM
Yea,me too,try it with caffein and pyruvate for enrgy/recovery;for me it works for endurance power and smooth muscles.
09-24-2004, 08:32 PM
Is ALCAR supposed to have a strong vinegar/Acetic Acid smell? My Fast purchased powder is pungent. Pure or not, it's a powerful stimulant to me, almost too strong at a gram per dose.
09-24-2004, 09:43 PM
Pungent is a great description for it. I have a kilo from BSL and it's the same way.
