Doctor's Best Best Acetyl-L-Carnitine
No Longer Available
Acetyl-L-Carnitine(ALC) is a naturally occurring form of L-Carnitine, a vitamin like-nutrient synthesized in the body, from the amino acids lysine and methionine. ALC plays a key role in the production of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter for brain and nerve cell function. The Acetyl-L-Carmitime in this product is derived from a base of high quality L-Carnitine manufactured by a patented, FDA-approved process that fully complies with USP 25 FCC 4 and EU monographs. It is GMO-free, pesticide-free and BSE safe. Supports energy metabolism in the brain. Keeps nerves healthy and in repair. Decreases free radical production in the brain.
How does it work?
Acetyl-L-Carnitine serves as a transport molecule for “active acetate,” which is a source of fuel for metabolic processes that take place in cells. Acetyl-L-Carnitine carries active acetate (the “Acetyl” portion) directly into the mitochondrion, the cell’s energy-generating structure. Active acetate is used to produce cellular energy in the form of ATP. Unlike L-carnitine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it has specific benefits for brain neurons.
