    Injectable L-Carnitine is a legal amino acid/supplement that you inject. JP, Alex Kikel and John meadows say it's the secret to getting more from your gear or making your genetics better for bodybuilding as it up-regulates your androgen receptors... it also makes you use fat for fuel so you can become leaner in the process similar how HGH works.

    Do you agree? what is your experience?


    Some use 200mg a day and report amazing results but Chase Irons uses 2 grams.

    How much do you use?

    I believe @Clubber Lang does 500mg every day. It must be really effective so give it a go Darren.

    The oral form is 14% bioavailable, so you need 5000mg every day with high carb meal or insulin. Trust me, its worth it!!!!

    Make sure it's L-Carnitine Tartrate or you could just inject 500mg of the oil. It's a pain in the ass everyday though.

    Injecting L-carnitine will make you go hypogonadal OP.

    I wouldn't recommend using high doses of oral carnitine
    About 10 years ago I was using the acetyl version in powder form which requires a much lower dose than regular carnitine
    I misread the label and used a small scoop thinking it was a mini scoop
    Worked out about 10x as much I think
    It made me give off a rotting fish type odour which I couldn't actually smell myself
    Fucking embarrassing having people ask if I could smell it and I couldn't
    I had to try and work out what was causing it and eventually found this is a side effect of too much carnitine

    Would like to try it. John meadows rated it alot, Id use it but I cba with pinning that much every day tbh. Maybe I'll Try it some time, just to see for myself. I think though if it was as good as made out to be every bodybuilder would be using it from an amateur level and upwards, but they're not. And considering bodybuilders would do anythig for the slightest edge I think that says it all.
    Looks good on paper, not so much in practice.
    I did get a noticeable boost from the tartrate when cutting, performance wise but when food is back up it does nothing noticeable.

    Maybe a good supp for a natural or someone cutting on test only but when things like tren, winny, t3 etc are in the mix can its effects be that noticeable?

    Alex Kikel who wrote a book about Carnitine says it will add 5-10% more muscle, less fat whilst being able to lower your gear intake.

    Carnitine is also good for energy and fertility. Mo Farah supposedly admitted to taking 100ml in an IV before a marathon

    Here is the dosages Alex Kikel recommends
