Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a modified amino acid that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it is converted into ATP (cellular fuel). ALC is a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it helps to manage oxidative damage, supports mitochondrial function and helps to maintain normal neurotransmitter activity. Clinical studies suggest that ALC helps to maintain optimal neurological health.

Find that my brain is not so foggy

Better mood

It gets me into sleep much faster when I have a tablet right before I sleep. No any bad side effects at all. I feel my mind calmer and I can think faster with more creativity

I have been taking Acetyl-L Carnitine for over 8 years. I take it with the Lipoic acid supplement. Together they work in providing help with memory and energy building of the cells.

Good results

Been using this Carnitine for a few weeks and so far so good as I can notice a slight progress. As you know burning fat also needs hard work in order to achieve concrete results.

Not bad

Not bad, have not really felt a massive difference, but my weight loss has continued at a good rate after it had stalled a little.

Good product at a reasonable price

I'm already 49 and I continue to actively engage in sports. Take the drug for two weeks on one capsule daily in the morning before charging or additional one capsule 30 minutes before workout. I can say - it works. I feel fresh and workable fatigue has become much smaller. It is necessary to taste to understand that. One minus, very long delivery.

ALC is my favorite supplement

For me, the cognitve effect is amazing: I am a lot more active, I get motivated alot easier and have a more positive mood. I take 1g 1st thing in the morning (with NOW True Focus - also a great product) and sometimes 500mg with the 12.00pm meal (tried 1g but can't fall asleep too easy). Seems to work great with caffeine (I recommend green tea rather than coffee) I will use ALC forever :)

Burn fat with L-carnitine

The form of this Now foods Acetyl L-carnitine is great! It is very effective and gives a great kick for my workout. I can feel the power when I'm trying to burn fat. Although the price is high. I remove the capsule and mix the powder with water, so it absorbs better to my body. I usually take 1-2 grams about 15-30 minutes before training.

good deal

seems just fine

seems like a fine product. I have taken it in conjunction with two other products and things seem to be going well. But by itself it is hard to say how good a product it is. Nothing negative to say at all. It is a more portable version than the liquid form which allows me to take it at work and away from home.

Works really good

Good alcar. I still prefer l-carnitine over this. Be aware. For me this 500mg was too much as a one time capsule. It affected my sleep. I slept only like 2-3 hours per night. Not good. It was pretty crazy. Start with smaller doses and examine yourself to see how this affects you. Then go for bigger doses if needed.

Excellent service, very good customer service and prices

Cannot rate all the products I order as it is my choice, I select along the years and if I renew it is because I think they are the right choice, not because of I HERB, or any other Company. But nevertheless, I am extremely happy and satisfied with your service, the very fast shipping this year is very much appreciated, and I will remain a customer of yours, for all the reasons above, Rapidity,price, service you have it all. Thanks

Фантастика! Для кетогенной диеты!

Для кетогенной диеты необходимый продукт. Питает мозг кетоновыми телами, вырабатываемыми из расщепленных жирных кислот (из подкожной жировой клетчатки). Необходимая вещь при тренировках на кетогенной диете! Повышает самочувствие, усиливает питание мозга.

Л Карнитин

Считаю принемать нужно регулярно.

Posted by on April 05 2020

正直、単体での効果は期待しておりません。しかしながら、αリポ酸とユビキノールの2つを追加で組み合わせると非常に効果を発揮しやすいです。 まず疲れにくく、疲労の回復が早いです。検証して数日ですが、私の場合は極度な空腹になりくいです。ミトコンドリアが活性化しているせいなのか、体と思考が軽いです。 よほどミトコンドリアが不調だったのかもしれません。これかも愛用させていただきます。

Não Notei Diferença

Estou tomando vários Suplementos para memória (na dúvida, veja minha lista) eles foram sugeridos por diversos profissionais. Sendo assim, separei eles para ficar mais fácil a você. Fica difícil eu falar de um especificamente.

Удивительный бад , принимаю за 30 минут до кардио тренировок . Отличный результат повышается выносливость и общий тонус организма, стал более легко проходить то расстояние которое было раньше! Так как сил стало больше то пришлось увеличить и расстояние и время тренировки! Отлично хорошая помошь при похудении!цена качество на высоте !

Добавка Рабочая

Лукавить не стану взял именно эту добавку, потамучто не было в наличии той которую хотел, так как сама фирма известная и надёжная, единственный минус это достаточно дорогая цена за единицу. Сама добавка не чем не хуже и не лутьше других, то что это штука работает, надеюсь не кому не нужно говорить и доказывать!?

хорошее качество, но есть минусы

не очень удобная пленка-крышка(плохо снимается), в остальном-высокое качество и соотношение цены/количества

Posted by on September 30 2017
Никакого эффекта!

Данный препарат абсолютно мне не подошел, не работает совсем!

Posted by on September 20 2017
Работает при условии:

Рабочий л-карнитин. Чем меньше жрёте тем лучше работает. А если быть точным то на полный желудок или сразу после еды он точно не работает.

Польза 100%

Польза есть! И вообще продукция фирмы NOW вся крутая и полезная!

Posted by on May 14 2017

Эффект этого карнитина ощутим и он мне нравится больше, чем жидкие шоты из спортпита , принимаю две капсулы за полчаса до тренировки. Энергии прибавляется , выносливости тоже ( не глобально, но ощутимо), а вот эффекта в виде мега ручьев пота нет

Принимаю перед тренировкой 1 капсулу самочувствие лучше, меньше утомляемости. Тренируюсь с пульсометром, пуль не так зашкаливает, Удобно не надо ни чего мешать.

Хороший препарат

Пью по рекомендации знакомых, как средство для улучшения работы нервной системы во время физических нагрузок и умственной деятельности. Принимаю почти полгода по 3 капсулы в день, ничего особенного не заметил, но и побочных эффектов тоже никаких. Мозги работают хорошо, не могу сказать, что от БАДов, может быть, просто привык. Цена приемлемая, банки 200 капсул хватает больше, чем на 2 месяца.

Posted by on March 29 2014

Вообще в целом продукции NOW доверяю. А карнитин нормального качества, глотается легко.

Работает на все 100!

Замечательным свойством карнитина является его способность снижать содержание в организме холестерина и замедлять образование сосудистых атеросклеротических бляшек. Под его влиянием усиливается образование лецитина в печени, а поскольку лецитин «вымывает» из атеросклеротических бляшек холестерин, то можно говорить о том, что карнитин — это одно из немногих соединений, применение которых позволяет достичь активного долголетия. Кроме того, L-карнитин способствует усилению детоксикационной функции печени, синтезу гликогена, более активному расщеплению молочной и пировиноградной кислот, которые являются «токсинами усталости». Принимаю по 3 капсулы карнитина за полчаса до любой аэробной физической нагрузки и 3 капсулы после нагрузки. При этом жиры, поступая в мышечные клетки, сгорают там наиболее эффективно.

運動の時の発汗量が違ってきたかな?それと、気のせいか頭がシャキッとしてきた気もしますが、サプリメントで劇的な効果を期待するというのは 無理なのでもう少し続けてみようと思います。
