    There have been a few threads on carnitine and its importance for us all. It's part of Freddd's deadlock quartet of AdoB12, meB12, methlyfolate and, of course, carnitine (as L-carnitine fumarate or ALCAR).

    L-canitine fumarate made my son very, very tired and did nothing else, so we dropped it after a few weeks.

    We took ALCAR for almost a year, and we though ti did nothing. We've recently restarted it, and I think it has reverse some of the muscle wasting since... stopping the ALCAR at the end of last year.

    For the record, here's what else has been said on PR, but I can't see why it would increase muscle mass.

    I'd really like to know why it works. Anyone with better knowledge out there?

    Previously, on PR...
