I’ve read online that it is supposed to increase fertility in men by increasing sperm motility. I also read that it is supposed to help treat Peyronie’s Disease. Furthermore, there are some online forums where men have noticed an increase in acne/oil production while taking Acetyl L-Carnitine, as well as, increased facial hair thickness and faster growth. They also seem to complain of hair loss. To me, it looks like smyptoms of increased DHT:
“I’ve noticed that as I added yet another capsule of LEF’s preparation (started at 1 am now at 4 every morning upon arising), I’ve been getting acne. I’ve got oily skin and I was prone to acne while growing up. I’ve also noticed that my beard grows much faster and thicker each capsule I add. People tell me that the skin on my face and neck is getting tighter, looks thicker and smoother. Could these be effects of increased pep in the cells?”
Another guy on the Mind and Muscle said this about Acetyl L-Carnitine:
“Even though I didn’t see this mentioned, I have noticed a denser, quicker growing facial hair since starting taking Acetyl L-Carnitine (1x500mg/day in the morning) for about a month.”
Has anyone ever tried this supplement with any success? Does anyone know anything information about this supplement? Is it safe, should it be cycled, how much should we take, etc.?
