I would totally recommend this product for mental clarity, enhanced memory and focus and concentration. I found this product very helpful this semester for university courses, which I thought have lost my focus. I shared this product with my dorm-mate and she swears by this. So we ordered another two bottles of it. I would never live without this ALCAR, It is a magic pill for students or anyone who wants enhanced focus, concentration and better memory. You have to combine this with Alpha Lipoic Acid for for even better results. iherb is wonderful in their services, my purchase was delivered within 5 working days here in Fiji.
I started taking this product after the Perricone recommendation, Acetyl L Carnitine, is supposed to be anti inflammatory and improves mitochondrial function. I take it with my omegas for better absorption. I think it has improved my athletic performance. Another very good product is Carnityl by Thorne Research. Click on my username for more reviews!

Great for a mental hangover, whenever I used to drink alcohol I would have a few days following where my brain just did not work right/feel right which could last for an entire week, now I just take a few of these before I have a drink and at the end of the night and they have pretty much eliminated the alcohol related brain fog... now I just need to find something for my general non alcohol brain fog :).

I took 2 tablet with Magnesium ( 320mg) also before exercise, After a few days, I begin to feel good against fatigue and started fat loss and muscle gain on the 3nd week after exercise. One advice is do not load yourself with too much carbohydrate food ( bread, swiss roll, rice)
