Acetyl-L-Carnitine Benefits and Uses

 

Acetyl-L-carnitine is an amino acid synthesized in the kidney, liver and brain from lysine and methionine. It is recognized as the most absorbable form of L-carnitine having the ability to efficiently cross the blood-brain barrier.

 

L-carnitine’s main chemical function is to help the body produce energy through the mitochondrial oxidation of long-chain fatty acids. Anecdotally, this dietary supplement is used for its perceived abilities to promote brain health as well as enhance metabolism and energy levels.
