Default PLCAR and ALCAR

I know what Acetyl-L-carnitine is, but just seen Ricka using PLCAR Propionyl-L-Carnitine and am wondering what exactly it is, how effective it is, and where you purchase it?

Steve, If you know what ALCAR is, think of it like this: ALCAR for the mind, PLCAR for the body. It's just another form of Carnitine. L-Carninite has horrible(20-30%) bio-availability, so oral supplementation is sort of pointless. But, both AL and PL have BA rates around 80%. PL has an affinity towards the heart and cardiovascular system as a whole. AL is more of nooptropic, taken to help deal with shitty feelings while on cycle or caloric deficit.

Also, taking both seems to really give an super overall boost. I will be trying both with my next order. I get my PLCAR from NP, $25 for 200, 500mg servings. So at around 5g a day, that gives me about 40 days worth. ALCAR is similarily priced..

I can post some links I used, but they do go to another site like this, but with a more anabolic mind..if you get the hint..don't want to advertise another site here..unless you say it's gtg.

I've been taking ALCAR for about a year now. I find it synergies well with caffeine, and green tea extract. I do take 300mg of CoQ10 as the anti-oxidant though now I'm hearing that it may not be necessary.

I first bought it for a pick-me-up for morning sessions at the gym. I now use it for school. My ability to retain and recall information is greatly increased. I also feel mild euphoria and makes me very eager to learn and ask questions. I'm quite a fan of ALCAR.
