L Carnitine

Why is ALCAR supplemented?

L-Carnitine (also known as ALCAR) is particularly supplemented into a diet to aid in fat loss. It can also be used to to assist in cognitive function and energy production.

How it works?

Acetyl carnitine is an ester of L-carnitine which is very easily absorbed by the body.

In regards to weight loss, ALCAR is a fat metaboliser. It is designed to increase the utilisation of fatty acids and convert them into energy production.

In regards to mental performance, ALCAR crosses the blood and brain barrier which then improves mood, focus and mental cognition. ALCAR is a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter required for mental function.

As mentioned, ALCAR is most popularly supplemented into a diet when one is trying to lose weight.

When dieting the it is often the macronutrient, carbohydrates, that is dramatically dropped in the diet to help you get lean. Low carbohydrate consumption may leave people feeling a little flat and slightly delayed in mental processing. This is why, when and how ALCAR beneficially assists.

Training Benefits

Not only will ALCAR provide improved mental performance and focus during training, but it will also excrete toxins out of your muscles during exercise. This will lead to less fatigue and better recovery. It will also help channel your energy into the exercise at hand.

Recommended Dosage

For maximum effect, 3000-5000mg (3-5g) per day of ALCAR is recommended. This can be taken at once or split up throughout the day.

How to Take

ALCAR can be mixed with liquid. It is personal preference on what you would like to mix it with e.g. with a protein shake, non sugar added cordial, fat burner etc. We will leave the ball in your court.

However, for outstanding results, you may consider mixing it with a thermogenic fat burner to increase the fat burning power of the supplement.

How to take it: Mix 1 serve of Hybrid Performance Nutrition ALCAR in 200ml water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

This is also great to be taken alongside your pre-workout supplement to increase mental focus & fat burning.
