QUADRACARN is a dietary supplement containing 4 scientifically studied analogs of carnitine (l-carnitine, n-acetyl-l-carnitine, propionyl-l-carnitine and l-carnitine l-tartrate) plus Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract. Carnitine is a substance produced naturally by the human body in small quantities.
QUADRACARN is a year-round, life-long formula for anyone who truly cares how they look and perform today, and how they’ll look and perform for the remainder of their life. Scientific studies have revealed that the very same carnitine analogs found in QUADRACARN are capable of producing a total of at least 21 interconnected pharmacological actions that affect the way your body looks and performs (both in the gym and the bedroom), nerve and mitochondrial health, blood flow, NO, how quickly you age, insulin and testosterone effectiveness, cholesterol, hair loss, and much more.
For best results use QUADRACARN three times daily: one serving (3 tablets) with meal one; one serving before training; and one serving with final meal (or before bed).
QUADRACARN benefits at least 21 different interconnected pharmacological actions of far-reaching and critical importance to your appearance, performance, and overall health and longevity. The human body does not synthesize any carnitine analogs in the amounts shown to produce these actions in scientific studies; hence the term "pharmacological actions". However, by supplementing your diet with QUADRACARN several times daily you can safely and effectively ingest the amounts of carnitine analogs required to produce the pharmacological actions reported in the aforementioned studies.
QUADRACARN is the world's first such formula containing 4 scientifically studied carnitine analogs plus Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract.
QUADRACARN offers potency and versatility unlike any carnitine-containing formula of the past (also see Comparison Chart, below):
The only way is QUADRACARN!Pharmacological actions are only possible when you achieve pharmacological levels. Male or female, QUADRACARN will enable you to rapidly and reliably raise your circulating concentrations of its 4 scientifically studied carnitine analogs plus Gymnema sylvestre to levels not achievable through diet alone. Why is this so important? Because only at these so-called pharmacological levels can you experience the interconnecting pharmacological actions - at least 21 in all - documented in scientific studies.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)What is QUADRACARN?
QUADRACARN is a dietary supplement containing 4 scientifically studied analogs of carnitine (l-carnitine, n-acetyl-l-carnitine, propionyl-l-carnitine and l-carnitine l-tartrate) plus Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract. Carnitine is a substance produced naturally by the human body in small quantities. Once thought to be involved only in the conversion of fat into energy, scientists have since learned that it has many far-reaching actions critically related to your appearance, performance and overall health and longevity. These benefits have been documented in studies using the same carnitine analogs found in QUADRACARN.
Can anyone use QUADRACARN?
QUADRACARN is intended for several times daily use as a dietary supplement by men and women 18 years of age and older who wish to improve their appearance, performance and overall health and longevity.
What makes QUADRACARN different from other physique and performance supplements?
When can I expect to see results while using QUADRACARN?
Studies suggest that it can take anywhere from 3-6 hours for the level of carnitine in your circulation to reach a maximum when taking carnitine supplements. (Here, "carnitine" refers to all analogs of carnitine.) Depending on the dosage, it may take up to 3 days or more before your carnitine level achieves what scientists refer to as a "steady state". That being said, it is quite possible for QUADRACARN uses to experience noticeable improvements in their physique (e.g. vascularity, muscle volumization or fullness) and performance (e.g. mood, energy and cognitive function) within 1-2 weeks of using it several times daily. Scientific studies suggest that supplementation with carnitine analogs can continue to provide beneficial pharmacological actions for months, or essentially, as long as you continue to take them.
Can I stack QUADRACARN with UP-LIFT?
Yes. As noted above, QUADRACARN can be combined with any other Beverly product. For instance, users have reported even harder and longer-lasting pumps when stacking QUADRACARN with UP-LIFT. This may be explained by a powerful synergy between the ingredients found in each product.
If I don't perform resistance exercise, can I still benefit from using QUADRACARN?
QUADRACARN is capable of providing you with benefits whether or not you exercise. However, you can expect far greater benefits when using QUADRACARN as a supplement to a calorically-appropriate diet and a regular program of cardiovascular and resistance exercise. Because resistance exercise is more efficient at stimulating muscle protein synthesis, you can expect greater gains in muscle mass, strength, shape, tone and definition when using QUADRACARN while performing this type of exercise.
Is QUADRACARN safe for people with medical conditions?
In scientific studies, carnitine supplements have been given to 100-year-old subjects and subjects with medical conditions. These studies have reported a variety of positive results from carnitine supplementation. Also note that QUADRACARN was tested on healthy exercising individuals during the product development stages. Nevertheless, it is advised that you discuss QUADRACARN with your medical doctor before using if you have a medical condition, or if you are currently unaware of your health status.
Can QUADRACARN be used during preparation for a bodybuilding competition? What about a fitness or figure competition?
Yes. Physique competitors of all kinds need to hold onto as much of their muscle mass as possible while burning fat. During the product development stages Beverly tested QUADRACARN on subjects who were dieting for physique competitions. They found that rather than merely holding onto more muscle mass while dieting, the subjects actually gained muscle and experienced improvements in shape, tone, vascularity and definition. This is unusual in that the calorie-restricted diets followed by physique competitors typically result in muscle wasting (atrophy). These benefits were only observed when the subjects took relatively large doses of carnitine analogs. These doses can easily be achieved when QUADRACARN is used as directed.
Can I stack other Beverly products with QUADRACARN?
Yes. QUADRACARN was designed to be complementary to every other Beverly product. Contact our customer service team for help in developing your ideal physique and performance stack. Contact information is provided below.
I just want to look slim and toned. I don't want to gain muscle. Is QUADRACARN suitable for me?
Yes. The quantity, or mass, of muscle on your body plays a critical role in determining its shape, tone, curves and lines. Thus, it is important that you take steps to protect your muscle mass while reducing fat mass, particularly if you aren't performing resistance exercise on a regular basis. Ingredients found in QUADRACARN have been shown to produce pharmacological actions of importance to both maintaining muscle mass and reducing fat mass.
I want something to help me avoid aging, or at least slow it down a bit. What kind of benefits can QUADRACARN provide me with?
All of the 21 pharmacological actions listed above (answer to question 7) have the potential to delay or even reverse certain facets of aging. For instance, with age your neurons (nerve cells) tend to accumulate damage. This can increase your risk of neurological diseases like dementia and Alzheimer's. Studies on n-acetyl-l-carnitine, a carnitine analog found in QUADRACARN, indicate that it can protect neurons from damage, including cell death, termed apoptosis.
Another example comes from the mitochondria, which are the "power plants" of your body's cells. They supply almost all of the cells' energy needs. Like neurons, mitochondria tend to break down over time. This has been blamed as a major cause of aging. Experimental studies suggest that n-acetyl-l-carnitine can protect mitochondria from damage. In animal studies, n-acetyl-l-carnitine has been found to actually increase mitochondrial mass (i.e. their numbers and/or size) in muscle tissue subject to unloading (disuse). Both actions have the potential to delay or reverse aging.
It's not unusual to experience hair loss as you age. Here QUADRACARN may also be of help. A study published in the journal Experimental Dermatology found that l-carnitine l-tartrate (one of the analogs found in QUADRACARN) extended the period of maximum hair growth when cultured hair follicles were treated with it. This carnitine analog also stimulated the hair follicles to increase in length and reduced the number of them undergoing apoptosis.
Of course, we all know how hard it is to hold onto muscle mass as we age. In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 100-year-old subjects received l-carnitine (one of the analogs found in QUADRACARN) or a placebo for 6 months. The subjects who received l-carnitine experienced a reduction in total cholesterol, an increase in muscle mass (by over 8 lbs), a reduction in fat mass (a loss of nearly 4 lbs), a decrease in muscle fatigue, improvements in walking capacity, and an increase in cognitive performance.
Where is QUADRACARN made?
QUADRACARN was formulated and tested by R&D scientists at the Beverly International Nutrition head office in Cold Spring, Kentucky. Each ingredient has been selected based on the results of Beverly's own tests and studies published in publicly-accessible databases such as those made available by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).
