Rated 5 out of 5 by from Renewed energy I had been feeling more tired than normal for a few months. I started taking Acetyl L-Carnitine and was surprised to notice a few days later that my feeling of fatigue was gone. This was the only thing I had changed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Undecided I have only been taking L-carnitine for a few weeks and have not noticed any difference in my memory. I will take it until the caps run out. By then I might notice a difference..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for you All items that I need in food isn't always there in food. This is an amino acid that is very important substance found in food but is lacking nowdays but our bodies still need this nourshnent. Antioxidents is another word for important.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dieting made more successful I find L carnitine to be a helpful assistance to weight loss. Also, I definitely seem to have more endurance when exercising. Gov regs regarding reviews published w/in Swanson's website prohibit my saying too much, however, google l carnitine benefits. I find the benefits to be the same for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from doubly effective Swansons Acetyl L Carnitine has the most competitive price and breaks the brain blood barrier for increased cognition and enhanced energy. Combine it with Swansons Alpha Lipoic Acid for an added anti-oxidant benefit. I am 75 years young, and attribute it to a strong immune system that is enhanced by Swanson products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very beneficial I believe that this product helps me sleep better and it also curbs my appetite. It seems to affect my mood for the better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective! I am an engineer, not in the medical industry, and research to increase health and vitality. After personal study, I take 2-4 G ALC daily on an empty stomach with 600 mg ALA. Mood, performance and endurance have improved. Alternate days I offset with 1-2G L-Lysine. This is a premium product at a great value!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I started taking this produce along with Alpha Lipoic Acid once daily and within 3 days I noticed a definite improvement in my energy level. I'm 75 and we oldies are always looking for things that will boost our energy. I've tried many other "energy boosters" but none have worked as well as this combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best acetyl l-carnitine This product is made by Sigma Tau, subtitled Bio-sint. They are the leader in carnitine products, making pharmaceutical grade carnitine among their product line. This product may cost more but it's the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for your brain and looks! Taking ALCAR improves my concentration more than anything I have tried so far, and I have tried many nootropics. On top of that, it makes my weightloss process faster. Whenever you see this thing "On sale", don´t hesitate and try it. From my experience, it is better than the regular Swason´s alcar, that goes for half the price of this one. However, I cannot tell, whether it is twice as good, as the price would suggest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good! I have taken this for several years now, on and off at times when I could not afford it. There is a BIG difference in my concentration and memory when I am taking it. I wish it was not so expensive, because it is one I really do not want to go without. I am a programmer/analyst and really need to be able to concentrate, focus and finish assignments quickly and accurately. This REALLY helps !!!
