My name is Christine Marquette and I'm a registered and licensed dietitian with Marquette Nutrition and Fitness and I'm going to talk to you about Acetyl L Carnitine side effects. Acetyl L Carnitine has been used for a variety of reasons. A lot of people use it to improve their mental focus. It has been shown to possibly improve your actual energy levels so not just your physical energy but your mental energy as well. However, it is very important that you monitor the dose and a lot of people if they take more than 500 mgs. in a day that's when side effects were seen. Side effects such as insomnia, irritability, nausea, stomach upset, a lot of GI distress so to avoid side effects with Acetyl L Carnitine you really need to keep the dosage below 500 mgs. Again since it can be used to increase your energy if you take too high of dose it really does make sense that it would cause you to become a bit irritable basically feel almost hyperactive from that perspective. In that case too as far as your mental energy and your physical energy if you get a little bit too energetic physically is when a lot of times you can end up causing yourself nausea so those are some things to keep in mind as far as Acetyl L Carnitine side effects.
