Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a form of the amino acid L-carnitine found everywhere in mammalian tissues. It is important for energy production to reduce fatigue and can enhance athletic performance. This amino acid is known for assisting the body to convert fat into energy. Carrying fatty acids across walls of the mitochondria, where they become oxidized and used for energy. The acetylated form of L-Carnitine is known to be best used by the brain. And able to cross the blood brain barrier (BBB) to enhance cognitive function and reduce neurological decline.
There has been extensive research done documenting improvements to mitochondrial function, sperm production and energy production. Acetyl–L-Carnitine can convert to L-carnitine in the body as well, so this can assist those who are deficient due to certain medications, disease, a strict vegetarian diet, or those with heart or circulatory conditions.
