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.
