  • Transports Fatty Acids*
  • Boosts Cellular Energy*

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a modified amino acid that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it is converted into ATP (cellular fuel).* ALC is a highly bioavailable form of carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it helps to neutralize free radicals, supports mitochondrial function and helps to maintain normal neurotransmitter activity.* Clinical studies suggest that ALC helps to maintain optimal neurological health.

Acetyl-L-carnitine, sometimes referred to as ALCAR or ALC, is a well-researched, more bio-available form of L-Carnitine, which is actually a derivative of the amino acid lysine. Since L-carnitine is involved in cell metabolism, acetyl-L-Carnitine can help increase the body’s production of energy in the mitochondria, known as the "power plants" of all cells. For this reason, ALCAR can help increase physical and mental energy. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is also often used to help improve memory and plays a key role in the utilization of fats for energy.
