    Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR)


    Has anyone found ALCAR to have any appreciable effects on metabolism, catabolism, and/or fat loss? I know the life extensionists are big on this stuff as a mental acuity aid, but there are a lot of claims floating around about its positive effects on body composition. Now that the price has come down ($20 for 100 capsules at 500mg), I'm interested in feedback from actual users before trying it.

    This is a hijack!!!


    Thought I would post this here cause big threads make me go ADD.

    Has anyone experienced any negative side effects from ALCAR?
    I read it can cause fever and I am not a big fan of surprises.

    thanks.

    By itself it doesn't do very much for fatloss per se, but indirectly it can take the mental pain out of dieting.
