Caution long term effects...do your reseacrch Review by

Hi this was great in the short term, however after two weeks or so it could cause weight gain due to impaired thyroid function. I lost and then gained fat taking this or l-carnitine before i worked out. After a few months use every other day before workouts, I was losing energy and gaining fat.

This product has made my life so much better. Review by

I have only been taking this product for a couple of weeks, and already am feeling the benefits. I have stable angina, and could only walk on my treadmill for a few minutes before having to stop and rest. Today I walked at a reasonable pace for 30 minutes without the tightness in my chest and neck yay!!! I seem to have so much more energy. I am 68 years of age and want to thank you Healthpost for the great work you do in bringing such wonderful products to us.

ALCAR Caps Review by
  • star

It's taken me at least a full 6-7months to reap the full effects of this essential compound....I had been on a lot of supplements and wasn't certain which ones were the most beneficial until I tested each one on its own for 3-4 weeks trial run.....I'm totally sure that Acetyl-L-Carnitine(ALCAR) is my Number 1 all time,top supp. During year 2011 I was hospitalised for Left MCA Stroke, Decompensated Liver, Upper GI Bleed-H.Pylori+ive, Duodenal Ulcer,Cardiac Arrythmia with obstructive jaundice symptoms and started medications and it's taken 2 years after real exercise and a real nutrition plan ( with Supplements ) I'm now thrown all the Meds out the door except for Baraclude (for now at least ).......I've spent some time on making certain which Supps I need to help with the rest of my life rather than relying on mad men chemicals that claim to heal half the problems and the other half is clouded and manipulated data.....Just a note to mention is I've researched company's that are honesty and fair in their claim to supply top Supps and I'm certain HealthPost is it. I look forward to do repeats from now on and if you don't hear from me all the time I must have got run over by a truck..Thanks and Cheers to You All!

Have been using this product for some time (First time from HeathPost tho!) I have Fibromyalgia, and find that Acetyl L-Carnitine helps relieve muscle cramps, twitches and tics, meaning more peaceful sleep, more energy and greater mental clarity.

Wow!i Saw this while shopping for ps and soy protein powder, which have been so effective for my depression the last few years.It has been 2 days of alc and Ive found: extended energy (not exhausted after some exertion,but more normal levels of tiredness);calm,balanced,thinking clearly;not comfort eating;reduced aching in body;anxiety, stress and sugar-induced anxiety alleviated. Im also actually smiling calmly right now, which is really really unusual as im usually so anxious. Great stuff!

This product is excellent for energy and metabolism. My body fat has improved from the 'fitness' category to that of an athlete since adding it to my existing fitness training routine. I also find that during training, I can squeeze out more reps, train at a higher intensity for longer and lift more weight. I find that one capsule per day works for my small frame. It's easy on the stomach too.
