Acetyl L-Carnitine


Acetyl L-Carnitine is the acetylated ester of the amino acid L-carnitine, which plays an important role in the transfer and utilization of long-chain fatty acids that are used in the production of energy. It supports the biosynthesis of acetylcholine, which is the most abundant neurotransmitter in the body, regulating activities of vital organs and blood vessels, and the communication between nerves and muscles.*

Recommended Use: Take 1 capsule per day or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

Acetyl L-carnitine is a natural component of our brain’s chemistry. The body makes it in small amounts, but as we age, acetyl L-carnitine levels decline. For optimal brain function, therefore, supplementation of acetyl l-carnitine may be highly beneficial. The only food source for this nutrient is animal brain, which is not a recommended food. Supplemental acetyl L-carnitine, on the other hand, is synthetically derived from other amino acids, and is suitable for vegetarians.
