I've never gone above 500 mg/ml. How did you solubilize it at that concentration? Will it keep in the fridge or fall out of solution at that temperature?

Injectable L-Carnitine at 600mg/ml

55ml Sterile H2O
60mg L-Carnitine Base(only base powder, not acetyl, not tartrate....base only)
1.5ml Benzyl Alcohol
,22um/33mm sterile filter(I used 4 total)
Two 100ml glass vials


This is how I made mine.....

1. Take the crimp and the stopper off one of your 100ml vials(this is your mixing vial)

2. Measure out your sterile H2O into the uncapped 100ml vial.

3. I then heated the water in the microwave for appr. 30 sec. Then add your BA. Adding your BA to the warm water keeps the water from turning cloudy. Gently swirl for 20-30 seconds.

4. Measure out your L-Carn base powder and add it to the BA/sterile water solution. I would measure out 10G at a time and swirl after adding each to dissolve the powder.

5. Once you have all the powder dissolved put your stopper back on and then I would draw out 10 ml at a time and filter into my other 100ml capped vial. Remember to vent the vial you are filtering into with a sterile needle.


The tedious part is the filtering. Once I filtered 15-20ml your pretty much slowed down to a dribble. This is why I changed out filters every 20-25ml.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I've used L-carnitine base as well, although I don't know why. I was just following a recipe. Can you tell me why base and not some other version?

Through my research base will hold at high concentrations and there is less chance of it crashing.

No pain or lumps? I'll have to make it again. I've tried every possible spot and I'll get a lump or pip. It's possible that I added a drop or two more of ba/bb and I guess that could have raised the pH enough to cause pip. Your also injecting IM and not subq right?

Are you storing it in the fridge? And is it remaining stable, i.e. not falling out of solution at that temp?

Helped my buddy make some and it held fine at 500mg/ml with no solvents. Wonder if some BB would help it go higher. I still haven't tried it but he was all about it for some reason.

Do most of you guys store something like this at room temp? I'd like to make it at higher concentrations but I always assumed an amino acid in water is a great place to grow some bacteria.

Storing mine at room temp. The BA takes care of bacteria.

Do you really use L-Carnitine in that much volume? Or is that like a years supply?

I inject a minimum of 500mg/day pre workout. I brewed the second vial up just because I am one of those guys that would rather do it now if I have the time then wait and do it later when I may not.

Do you use this to keep androgen receptors fresh or for fat loss?

Both....not to mention increase energy levels, recover faster, less lactic acid build up, improve brain function.....just a few other benefits as well.

I wonder what the max solubility at room temp is. I've been searching for chemical data sheets but I'm having a tough time finding the solubility data.

I had no idea it was so versatile. I have zero experience with brewing, but the process you laid out looks pretty straight forward. I would like to give this a try!

Its actually very simple. The filtering is the most tedious part of the process. I really only can filter 20-30mlbefore having to change it out again. It get to the point when filtering that it comes down to just a drip at a time.

That was my issue when brewing primo. I had bruises on my thumbs trying to get the shit through the filter. In the end I had 3 30ml jugs at just over 150mg per ml and the shit is smooth as silk, but the process was a pain in the ass. There has to be some automated way to push a solution through a filter but I'm not too big on having lab equipment in my home.

Good info and great thread. I made 166 ml last night following your recipe above but adjusting for the quantity. Same 600 mg / ml
