Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is a nutrient and naturally occurring metabolite in the human body that is involved in lipid, carbohydrate, and protein metabolism. A number of tissues contain significant concentrations of ALC but these decrease as we age and there is evidence that dietary supplementation can address these shortfalls.
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is the acetyl ester of the amino acid L-Carnitine, which transports fats into the mitochondria to be converted into an energy source. The heart, brain, muscles, and testicles contain considerable concentrations of ALC but the levels are dramatically reduced as we age. The bottom line is that ALC can improve energy and endurance in physical performance. ALC represents a substance, which is a high-energy storage compound. Research has shown that ALC can increase the amount of ATP produced in the body for energy and is one of the premiere anti-aging compounds, especially in relation to brain and nervous system deterioration.
ALC is a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine able to efficiently cross the blood-brain barrier. Once in the brain it acts as a neuroprotective and antioxidant agent and supports energy metabolism. We added Vitamin B6 to support energy metabolism for optimal mental alertness and focus.
