The Best form of Carnitine for Your Brain
Acetyl-L-Carnitine offers a better absorbed form of L-Carnitine
Provides cognitive support in neurological dysfunction
Helps relieve pain associated with diabetic neuropathy
ALCAR is N-acetyl-L-carnitine, which is an acetylated form of L-carnitine, a naturally occurring derivative of the amino acid lysine. ALCAR readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and helps to reduce fatigue, support cognitive function in the elderly, maintain cognitive function during aging and even relieve pain associated with diabetic neuropathy.
ALCAR is N-acetyl-L-carnitine, a short-chain acetylated ester of L-carnitine and a compound found ubiquitously in mammalian tissues that is important for energy production. Extensive research has documented ALCARs ability to improve mitochondrial function, sperm production and energy production. ALCAR is unique because it is thought to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier more easily than L-carnitine, making ALCAR more targeted toward cognitive function. Research has found ALCAR to be capable of reducing the symptoms of mild cognitive impairment by improving memory, attention, mood and other cognitive functions. ALCAR can also increase L-carnitine levels in those who are deficient due to the use of medications, disease, in strict vegetarians, dieters, and those with heart or circulatory conditions. Some people use L-carnitine for athletic performance and endurance as it promotes energy production and proper fat burning. Muscle fatigue, male infertility (due to poor sperm health), Rett syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, anorexia, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), thyroid imbalances, leg ulcers, high cholesterol and lyme disease are all common conditions that may benefit from ALCAR supplementation. ALCAR is beneficial for people of all walks of life including the young, middle-aged and elderly, vegetarians, infertility patients, brain rehab patients, those experiencing chronic fatigue and athletes. Better yet, the positive cognitive effects seem to persist even after stopping short-term supplementation! This makes it a worthwhile investment with good returns for anyone looking for additional memory, metabolic and general health support.
