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!

This is amazing stuff

A few years ago I got hold of a tonic with ALCAR, arginine and, I think, CoQ10 (but I'm not sure) as active ingredients. The stuff was brilliant, and I felt like a good and happy person when I took it. Then the formulation changed or something, and I stopped taking it. I didn't find out until recently that it was almost certainly the ALCAR that was causing the positive effects. Now it's a staple of my stack. I don't need much but I do need it, and when I have it I have energy, peace of mind, clarity and general good humour. It really is amazing. I feel ALCAR to my husband and his bad temper doesn't happen anymore. I've given it to friends whose children have fibromyalgia symptoms, and their kids have improved. ALCAR, pterostilbene, CoQ10, citicoline, Niagen and tiny amounts of PQQ with NAC are keeping me yopunger than I should be. Don't know what I'd do if I couldn't get them.

keeps me fresh during activity and after
Definitely helps maintaining intensive workouts

I stopped taking it after I heard it may slow down a thyroid. Before I used to take it with my espresso in advance of a high intense workout. Yes, coffee was taken to improve stamina, too. I felt so much better, I couldn't stop running or making circles on an elliptic machine after more than an hour of high tempo. In all other situations coffee doesn't contribute to my energy level (I sometimes take it before bed), so it was a great combo.
Great little Amino

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 :).
