Origin: Naturally produced in the human body
Also known as: ALCAR
Overview: The acetylated form of the amino acid Carnitine, Acetyl L Carnitine play a role in both energy production as well as cognitive enhancement.
Upon ingestion, ALCAR begins assisting in the shuttling of fatty acid to the mitochondria of the cell to be burned for fuel, improving cellular energy production. Additionally, the Acetyl bond allows the molecule to pass the brain blood barrier and donate the Acetyl group to form Acetyl Choline, which is an extremely important neurotransmitter. Research indicates benefits include improved cognitive energy, decreasing inflammation, improving the bodies ability to use testosterone, and improve recovery time.
