Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid the body uses to turn fat into energy.
It is naturally produced in the body. It helps the body produce energy and is important for heart and brain function, muscle movement, and many other body processes.
One of the keys uses of Acetyl L-Carnitine supplement is for fatty acid oxidation - helping users burn unwanted fat. Fatty acids are one of the key energy sources the body uses, and oxidation is the process by which they’re broken down to create energy. The fatty acids cannot penetrate the inner mitochondria membrane (where they are burned for energy), and the key role for L-Carnitine is to transport fatty acids across the mitochondria membrane to allow for oxidation of the fats.
Acetyl L-Carnitine is in a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it exerts an antioxidant effect, helps to maintain healthy cellular energy metabolism and supports brain function.
