Acetyl-L-Carnitine 500 mg 100 Vegetarian caps by Life Extension
In the body, L-carnitine helps maintain cellular energy metabolism by assisting in the transport of fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria within the cell, where fats are oxidized to produce the cellular energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP).
Acetyl-L-carnitine is the acetylated ester of the amino acid L-carnitine. Acetyl-L-carnitine is an endogenous mitochondrial membrane compound that helps maintain mitochondrial bioenergetics and may help lower oxidative stress.
Acetyl-L-carnitine and L-carnitine are absorbed into the bloodstream efficiently. Both help carry carrying long-chain fatty acids across the membrane into the mitochondria where they are burned for energy production and utilized efficiently by the cells. Acetyl-L-carnitine is also thought to cross the blood-brain barrier and help guard against oxidative damage.
Suggested Use: Take one (1) capsule two to four times daily, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. This product is best utilized when taken on an empty stomach with water or juice in divided doses 45 minutes before breakfast and lunch.
