    Whats the reason for taking the fumarate type instead of the others? I have taken one with phosphorus and ALCAR, and it was ok. I took a prescription kind for a while, not sure what it had, and it was ok but found the others where better. Once I took over 1,200 mg of the prescription type, as instructed by the doctor, but felt down and sick thou.

    Fred reckons that ALCAR is more effective for about 10% of people, and LCF is better for the rest. My own experience of taking 3 forms of carnitine before I landed on LCF was that the others did nothing. LCF, as Fred describes it, gave me immediate *brightening*. I've since found that ALCAR is useful for oxidative stress, and I've used it for that reason, in addition to LCF. Some people find they get anxiety type symptoms w/ LCF, and need to use liquid, so they can use tiny amounts.

    Here's Fred talking about LCF. You can find other comments if you search.

    Is any brand good, like Amazing Nutrition? I read that not every ALCAR brand is good, with Twinlab being the better one.

    I'm getting AlphaGPC choline + citicholine from an Australian ebay site. You'd likely find someone in US.
