As a graduate student taking neuroscience I began taking A-L-C to enhance cognition but curiously, main effect I discovered was that when exercising, I might still get tired as before but I could continue to do so without feeling the desire to stop; odd to describe. This was apparent after only a few days. I never noted any untoward effects using 3g/day in three doses. Your mileage may vary.

I read that new research is finding many hypo/hyper-thyroid benefit from Acetyl-L-Carnitine and decided to give it a shot. It's wonderful!
