I am currently cutting down a couple of pounds.
My question is: Can I stack L-carnitine and Arginine together? When exactly should i take them? at same time, pre workout, different times?
I also use bcaa's, protein, green tea extract, glutamine, omega 3's and a multi.
my l-carnitine is from DYMATIZE ( acetyl l-carnitine) and my arginine is from SCIFIT ( mega arginine). Should i use the recommended dosages or what?
also keep in mind I am currently working out at 6p.m., and I use intra workout aminolast as bcaa's, which (i think) contain a bit of taurine.

You'll be fine stacking those together. L Carnitine increases the potential for mitochondria to burn fat and has been shown to help increase insulin sensitivity, try taking 1000-2000mg a day after carb meals or pre workout. Arginine will be good to take 3g's before bed time as its an ammonia scavenger and will help recovery during sleep. Not sure how much Arginine will help with fatloss thoughGrenade Company Rep

I would take the ALCAR preworkout or any other time you could use a slight boost in focus/mental acuity.
I wouldn't take the arginine at all. It doesn't do what you're expecting it to."Man is nothing else but what he makes of himself." - Jean Paul Sartre
