    I've read about carnitine upregulating the AR but the magnitude of effect appears to be minimal and non significant.

    Didn't know this.

    The bioavailability of carnitine supplements in the dosage range of 1-6g appears to range from 14-18%, which is lower than the bioavailability from lower doses via food products (54-87%)[54][3] and applies to L-carnitine and ALCAR,[3] thought to also extend to Propionyl-L-Carnitine.[55]"

    Interesting, so that much goes into the toilet.
    Had a feeling about that, as two days ago I overdosed on carnitine before going to the gym. Had to run to be toilet after the workout and punished it severely.

    Small doses spread over the day makes more sense.
