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 an important neurotransmitter for brain and nerve cell function.
The Acetyl-L-Carnitine in this product is derived from a base of pharmaceutical grade L-Carnitine manufactured by patented, FDA-approved process that fully complies with the USP 25, FCC 4 and EU monographs. It is GMO-free, pesticide-free and BSE safe.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a naturally occurring form of LCarnitine, a vitamin-like nutrient synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. ALC serves as a transport molecule for “active acetate,” which is a source of fuel for metabolic processes that take place in cells. ALC 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. Both L-carnitine and ALC serve as fat carriers. Unlike L-carnitine, ALC readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it has specific benefits for brain neurons. When taken orally, ALC has been shown to promote healthy ALC levels in both blood and cerebrospinal fluid, demonstrating its uptake in the brain.1
