Naturally occuring Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is a form of the amino acid L-Carnitine, which is found in almost all cells of the body.
Unlike other forms of carnitine, Acetyl L-Carnitine has the ability to pass through the Blood-brain barrier. Once it reaches the brain, it acts as a powerful antioxidant and can protect the brain from free radicals. Besides for its antioxidant properties, the ‘acetyl’ element of ALCAR is involved in the formation of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which is critical for maintaining healthy brain cell function. This can include mental alertness, memory, focus and concentration.
L-Carnitine as an amino acid in involved in the process of supplying energy to cells. Because heart muscle tissue requires a lot of energy, ALCAR is particularly important for maintaining a strong heart.
Increasing the body’s supply of Acetyl L-Carnitine with an ALCAR supplement may help promote mental alertness and memory, maintain overall healthy brain function, and support focus and concentration. In addition, it may provide support for strong heart muscle tissue.*
