Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl (ALCAR) – Powder, 200g
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a form of L-Carnitine, an amino acid that is found in nearly all cells of the body that may help improve mood, learning and memory and increase energy levels.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) enhances the mitochondrial function and helps the mitochondria (the powerhouses of your cells) burn fat and create more energy — especially for the muscles and brain. It is readily formed in cells by the enzymatic addition of an acetyl group to Carnitine. Carnitine, also natural to the body, is a modified version of the amino acid Lysine. Enzymes can readily convert Carnitine to Acetyl-L-Carnitine and back, according to the metabolic needs of the cell. Thus, inside the cell, Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Carnitine are essentially interchangeable. The major difference between Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Carnitine is that Acetyl-L-Carnitine is more easily absorbed from the gut, and more readily crosses the blood-brain barrier.
What is Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl (ALCAR)?
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a mitochondrial metabolite that facilitates the movement of fatty acids into the mitochondria for energy and is also used to generate acetyl coenzyme A. It is an acetylated form of L-Carnitine, an amino acid that is found in nearly all cells of the body. L-Carnitine plays a critical role in the production of energy from long-chain fatty acids and it increases the activity of certain nerve cells in the central nervous system.
Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl (ALCAR) Benefits and Uses
Studies have shown that Acetyl-L-Carnitine may have the following benefits:
- Promotes a positive mood and healthy sleep
- Supports healthy circulation
- Promotes memory function and learning ability
- Anti-inflammatory effects
- Promotes increased energy levels and fat burning
Additional Information on Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl (ALCAR)
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body to generate energy. It is thought that it can improve mental impairments in aging humans and animals through mechanisms that increase energy metabolism in the brain and enhance brain cholinergic activity through acetylcholine release. Animal studies suggest that supplemental Acetyl-L-Carnitine may enhance cognitive functioning by elevating nerve growth factor (NGF) levels in the brain, stabilizing cell membranes and improving synaptic morphology, and decreasing the accumulation of potentially toxic fatty acids.
