Acetyl L-Carnitine

Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is a version of the amino acid L-Carnitine and plays a similar role in the body, including helping convert food into energy. The acetyl group has been extensively researched and shown to help prevent brain-ageing.

Acetyl L-Carnitine Benefits:

  • • Acetyl L-Carnitine is structurally similar to the most abundant neurotransmitter in the brain, acetyl-choline, which is poorly utilised in those suffering from poor cognitive function. Studies indicate that ALC may be of value in age related brain conditions. 
  • • Acetyl L-Carnitine carries long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria, the energy producing components of cells.
  • • Carnitine levels have been shown to decline with age. Studies indicate that supplements of Acetyl L-Carnitine may help restore carnitine levels in the body. 

 

 Acetyl L-Carnitine dosage range: 250-1000 mg per day.
