I'm not dsade, but they can be taken together:dsade any issue stacking ALCAR & PLCAR?
Oh and Glycomyx was a hit...at least with me while it was under the Southland Performance name. I honestly shed a tear when it went away.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/15072869/A total of 120 patients were randomized into three groups. The mean patient age was 66 years (range 60 to 74). Group 1 was given testosterone undecanoate 160 mg/day, the second group was given propionyl-L-carnitine 2 g/day plus acetyl-L-carnitine 2 g/day. The third group was given a placebo (starch). Drugs and placebo were given for 6 months...
Carnitines proved significantly more active than testosterone in improving nocturnal penile tumescence and International Index of Erectile Function score. Testosterone significantly increased the prostate volume and free and total testosterone levels and significantly lowered serum luteinizing hormone; carnitines did not...
CONCLUSIONS: Testosterone and, especially, carnitines proved to be active drugs for the therapy of symptoms associated with male aging.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/15039515/METHODS: In an open, randomized fashion we compared 2 g/d acetyl-L-carnitine, 2 g/d propionyl-L-carnitine, and its combination in 3 groups of 30 CFS patients during 24 weeks...
RESULTS: Clinical global impression of change after treatment showed considerable improvement in 59% of the patients in the acetylcarnitine group and 63% in the propionylcarnitine group, but less in the acetylcarnitine plus propionylcarnitine group (37%). Acetylcarnitine significantly improved mental fatigue (p =.015) and propionylcarnitine improved general fatigue (p =.004). Attention concentration improved in all groups, whereas pain complaints did not decrease in any group. Two weeks after treatment, worsening of fatigue was experienced by 52%, 50%, and 37% in the acetylcarnitine, propionylcarnitine, and combined group, respectively. In the acetylcarnitine group, but not in the other groups, the changes in plasma carnitine levels correlated with clinical improvement.
CONCLUSIONS: Acetylcarnitine and propionylcarnitine showed beneficial effect on fatigue and attention concentration. Less improvement was found by the combined treatment. Acetylcarnitine had main effect on mental fatigue and propionylcarnitine on general fatigue.
Always welcome to reply my man, you're a great source of knowledge/info. Appreciate the read.
Thanks man. That second study is interesting, and I checked, it was 2g of each for combined treatment, not 1g of each, so they were receiving more total carnitine than the other groups. It looks like they took the carnitine(s) split after breakfast and dinner, which means the combined group took both ALCAR and PLCAR at the same time. I'm wondering if taking them at different times would have yielded better results, although I could be completely wrong here. Perhaps maybe 2g ALCAR in the AM and 2g PLCAR pre-workout, or whatever fits your personal needs/timing. Maybe dsade could weigh in on this as well.Always welcome to reply my man, you're a great source of knowledge/info. Appreciate the read.
Odd...combined treatment had less effect on fatigue than using each independently. Def. something to think about.
Mix in the entire contents. Should be about 25 grams.dsade
So I received my PLCAR today with the Glycomax sample, I'm happy to test it out pre-workout and report back (most likely Saturday as that's a big chest workout), just wondering how much of the Glycomax am I supposed to take? Thanks!
How close to bedtime can it "safely" be taken (to not result in insomnia)?Dosage is 1-1.5 grams twice per day (preworkout is a fantastic time).
PLCAR has never really kept me awake in the same manner that ALCAR does, but everyone is affected differently.Just got my package with PLCAR + GlycoMx. I have a couple of questions.
How close to bedtime can it "safely" be taken (to not result in insomnia)?
I can break out the scale, but approximately what measure equates to the 1 - 1.5g dose? 1/4tsp, 1/2tsp? I can always double check against the scale, just wondered if you already had a rough estimate.
I saw some posts that talked about 2g doses, or is that the daily goal in the 1 - 1.5g twice daily dose you noted?
100% same here. I was mentally fatigued / yawning through my workouts even with 400+mg caffeine.This stuff is amazing my workouts are so much better and I'm not taking any caffeine along with it.
Correct.100% same here. I was mentally fatigued / yawning through my workouts even with 400+mg caffeine.
I chalked it up to needing a bit of a caffeine break, but since taking the break and cutting out PWO crap, I just take PLCAR, Creatine, and am running on alphaburn... and my god, my workouts have been insane!
This is going to be a part of your PWO correct dsade?
ramses31 Wimsicle dsadeI just received my PLCAR today but there is no scoop in the tub. I completely emptied it out and even used a sifter to make sure I wasn't missing it. I don't have a scale so can someone give me an idea of how much 1-1.5 grams is? I want to take a dose pre workout today so if anyone knows, that would be great. Thanks
My tub says that the 1 rounded scoop is 1.1g, but I didn't break out the scale to check it. I took 2 scoops of it this morning, added to my PWO, thinking I was getting 2g+ ,but I guess I had just over 1g. That might explain my lack of results when I tried 1 scoop by itself last week.1.8gm would be less than a flat teaspoon, maybe 3/4? I weighed a flat scoop (my tub had one), and it was approx 600mg.
Id guess 1.5gm to be just over half a teaspoon.
Edit: I packed three of the 600mg flat scoops into a teaspoon, was over 3/4 full. 1 flat teaspoon would fit approx 2gm. Hope that helps lol
Just to clarify:My tub says that the 1 rounded scoop is 1.1g, but I didn't break out the scale to check it. I took 2 scoops of it this morning, added to my PWO, thinking I was getting 2g+ ,but I guess I had just over 1g. That might explain my lack of results when I tried 1 scoop by itself last week.
According to my scale a flat 1/8 tsp (US) weighed in just over 500 mg (like 505). So 1/4 TSP would be your 1g amount and 3/8 TSP would be 1.5gI just received my PLCAR today but there is no scoop in the tub.
