I was reading a mag when I ran across a thing about Injectable L-Carnitine saying how it could help people lose weight. Of course they were claiming 10-15lbs in 2 weeks but I thought it was interesting. Could injecting L-Cartnitine really lead to any fatloss of any kind. I know it's taken orally for fatloss but would injecting it really increase it's effect. What are your thoughts?

Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is the acetyl ester of carnitine, which transports fats into the mitochondria. In the mitochondria these fats are converted to an energy source. ALC is found in the brain but its levels are dramatically reduced as we age. Recent research has vaulted ALC as one of the premiere anti-aging compounds, especially in relation to brain and nervous system deterioration. ALC not only increases the release and synthesis of acetylcholine it now appears that it has neuroprotective and neuroenhancing properties as well. ALC can prevent dopaminergic neuron death by the neurotoxin MPTP which causes symptoms similar to Parkinson's disease. It has also been established that the density of NMDA receptors declines with age along with a decreased amount of NGF (Nerve Growth Factor). Treatment with ALC restores the NMDA receptor numbers and enhances the effects of NGF.
Acetyl L Carnitine
The MW is >1000 and it is soluble in water & oil (I think), so why not make a transdermal instead of pinning it? LG & I had a discussion about this a few days ago. He was concerned that the old C2G formula wouldn't be the best carrier as Alcar is hydrophillic. Anyone else have a thought on this?

I think I remember some threads on animal's board on injecting alcar directly into fat deposits. Some people were having problems with injection sites becoming 'lumpy', like the fat was being 'dissolved' unevenly.

Couldnt it be suspended in BW with 2% Ba then filtered? It should be able to fit through a 29 pin if its not suspended in oil.

BUMP ... Sorry, i know i know, "holy thread resurrection batman" buttt, this thread needed a bump as Im experimenting from today with Capsicum cream for some fat loss around the abs, and i know of a company that sells a very reputable injectable product with just l-carnitine in there, this deserves more attention. Dont understand why people aren't discussing this more
06-17-2008, 09:15 AM
A Topical Cream or Transdermal Spray with some DMSO, would this help pull l-carnitine into the bloodstream properly?
Theres a company in the UK that have made a cream called goodbye cellulite, for fatloss around the thighs and stuff, they've showed testimonials on tv etc about it, their product contains l-carnitine if i remember.
I would try the injectable form but twice daily injections or once daily at like 2-3 cc's per shot is a little too much for me, and i've only used 30g needles before.
Come on guys im sure somebody must have some info on this to share?

I know this is an old post but where can I find injectable acetyl-L-Carnitine? There's nothing against using vitamins but if you don't want to answer in this thread then just PM me.

How fast or how much were you leaning out Maxximal? Any more details you could give about what kind of results you were experiencing exactly. Thanks buddy
01-14-2010, 11:22 AM
if you are not too obese the burn sensation is tolerable but if not PRAY.
look this s*** works tremendous!
01-14-2010, 04:03 PM
Got me curious too. What's the actual product called? I'll do a search... unless someone has a link.

OK, from what I've read this stuff comes out of Mexico and I have yet to see any reputable source actually say this stuff does anything other than burn.
Does anyone else on these boards (other than MAxximal - no offense, just looking for a couple more sources) have information on Cardispan/Injectible L-Carnitine?
A lot of the fitness boards have been spammed by people from Mexico pushing this product a few years ago. Seems there's been a resurgence lately.

Last year, saw this for sale in mexico,knew it was for fatloss,but didn't know if it worked good or not.It was L-carnitine not acety-L-carnitine,I could see the acetyl being harsh,not sure if above posters meant the ALCAR burned,or used the levo-carnitine.
01-27-2010, 08:38 AM
Yeah, my guess is since no one around here is swearing by it or has actually tried it themselves it's probably nothing...
01-27-2010, 08:56 PM
Atom what???? Someone above posted it works....wouldn't write it off just yet...Max said it did......
But me personally haven't noticed anything significant (fat loss wise)from oral L-Carnitine or oral ALC ,but I didn't really megadose the stuff either....

Not the acetyl but I am researching the subject now and would love to know more if anyone out here has any info on this subject please hit this thread up... I have Ideas spiing around in my head and I am looking all over as always. **** Its awesome when there is a subject I know little about. Gets me all amped up to learn.

I thought injectable l-carnitine has to be IM. Where do you guys get cardispan bc I have been looking for awhile.

works fine for concentrations up to about 500mg/ml
02-10-2011, 03:41 PM
02-10-2011, 03:45 PM
yepper. can get 800-900mg/ml in solution, but its too thick to use a slin pin then, plus burns like hell injected IM. i've never used it consistently any length of time though to be able to say. I made it that high a concentration as more or less it looks like you need 10mg/kg body weight or so, so basically 900mg or so at 200lbs.

Was the solution water based? I was considering sterile water but I don't know if the carnitine is water soluble.
02-10-2011, 04:57 PM
yep, water based. I used distilled water and added benzyl alcohol, and then filtered through a whatman
02-11-2011, 01:04 PM
That sythetech company makes sythetine which is 200mg/ml of injectable l-car.
I'm going to try and match this so i can use small pins
Here a link to the "research" behind it. http://www.synthetek.com/the-science-behind-synthetine/
