Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a form of carnitine that may help improve and maintain memory and enhance heart health. It may improve overall energy levels, as well as improving mental focus, learning, mood, and cognitive function.
It may promote eye and vision health and speeds up recovery time after exercise. It can help guard against oxidative stress and neurotoxicity, together with helping to improve mitochondrial function and structure.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is widely used by people who lead a high-active and demanding lifestyle and include sport and exercise into their weekly regime.
Acetyl-L-carnitine may provide support for the nervous system, cardiovascular system, and muscle.
Carnitine is an amino acid that carries fuel into the mitochondria of every cell for energy production. Acetyl-L-carnitine is a superior form of L-carnitine being more bioavailable in the body. Meaning, it passes more easily into the mitochondria and also crosses the blood-brain barrier (BBB), helping to energise the brain, protect against neurotoxicity and oxidative damage that is linked to faster ageing and disease.
Vitamin C, Iron, niacin (vitamin B3) folic acid (vitamin B9) and vitamin B12 (cobalamin) are also known to be essential for the manufacture of carnitine.
Most amino acids come in two forms; D-or L- (such as L-tyrosine or D-tyrosine). D-amino acid is a mirror image of the L- amino acid - in other words the D- form is a backward image.
Both can be taken. However, the L- form is preferable as it is the exact image of the amino acid in its natural form found in the body. The L- form is considered more effective for overall human health.
As with most amino acid supplements your body needs vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), which acts as a cofactor, helping to ensure correct amino acid metabolism.
As a dietary supplement, adults take one capsule daily. Take 30 minutes before a meal with a glass of water for best results, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light.
Do not exceed the recommended daily dose.
Keep out of reach of young children.
Children, pregnant women, and women who are breastfeeding should consult their doctor before use.
Nutritional supplements should not replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Check with simultaneous intake of medicines with your physician or healthcare professional. No long-term use without professional advice.
If you have kidney or liver disease, please contact your doctor before starting a carnitine supplementation.
