Step 2: ProALCAR+ Plus GBB (Target Fat) by PC Laboratories
Step 2 of our PC Laboratories Fat Loss System is designed to take the calories you are burning, during your daily activity, exercise and by using ProBurn Advanced and ensure they are coming from fat deposits and not muscle tone. The key ingredients in ProALCAR+ Plus GBB are Acetyl L-Carnitine and Gamma-butyrobetaine. These two ingredients work synergistically together to prioritize fat as your body’s primary source of fuel.
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR)
Acetyl L-Carnitine is a natural fat burner that will assist the body to use fat as a primary source of energy. Carnitine does this by binding to and transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells where fat is oxidized, or burnt, to generate energy. As well as being an effective, non-stimulant fat burner, ALCAR has also been tested in clinical studies and has been found to assist with cognitive function, memory, and mood.
Gamma-Butyrobetaine or GBB is a clinically trialled ingredient that has been proven to be a pre-cursor to L-Carnitine. This means GBB is the molecule your body converts into Carnitine. In clinical trials, supplementation of GBB resulted in a substantial increase of Carnitine presenting in the bloodstream of the subject. As mentioned above, Carnitine is essential in the fat burning process as it helps to generate energy using fatty acids. Additionally, supplementation with GBB has been shown to increase thermogenesis (increase in body temperature) which is great for fat burning as your body burns a lot of calories trying to return to homeostasis (cooling back down).
How to take ProALCAR+ Plus GBB:
Take 1 capsule first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with 250-500ml of water. Take another capsule before lunch or training with 250-500ml of water. We recommend taking ProBurn at the same time as your ProALCAR+. Drink at least 3 litres of water spread evenly throughout the day while using ProALCAR+. Use ProALCAR+ in conjunction with PC Laboratories ProBurn and ProCLA for best results.

This molecule has important physiological roles, including its involvement in the beta-oxidation of fatty acids by facilitating the transport of long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial inner membrane as acylcarnitine esters.
