What is it?

The fats that we eat and our body naturally forms are broken down inside organelles called the mitochondria. Carnitine is an essential compound for transporting fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane, and Acetyl L-Carnitine is unique as a carnitine source because it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and improve attention and cognition.


Acetyl L-Carnitine has been shown to: 

Increase fatty acid oxidation and decrease body weight*

Improve recovery from exercise and decrease soreness*

Reduce lipid peroxidation (an antioxidant effect)*

Decrease levels of ammonia and lactic acid.*

One study has also noted that L-Carnitine may enhance Androgen Receptor Density on muscle tissue in men.* 

Why do we need it:

Any way you slice it, the body needs L-Carnitine. In its acetylated form, Acetyl L-Carnitine, chaperones fats to meet their maker while also improving cognition with its ability to cross the blood brain barrier, and acting as an antioxidant. Supplementing with L-Carnitine has been shown to provide numerous health benefits including loss of body fat, so it is a great addition to any supplement plan.
