Acetyl-L-Carnitine Powder (ALCAR) is the ester acetylated form of Carnitine, a well-characterized amino acid naturally produced in the body to generate energy.

The human body uses Acetyl L-Carnitine for fatty acid oxidation, the process in which fatty acids are broken down to create energy. It achieves this by transporting fatty acids across the mitochondria membrane for oxidation to occur.

The highest levels of ALCAR are found in tissues that use fatty acids as their main fuel, namely the skeletal and cardiac muscles. Because of the attached acetyl group, Acetyl L-Carnitine is a cognitive enhancer and neuroprotective agent. It is also able to enter the circulation of the central nervous system, where it acts as a powerful antioxidant. Acetyl L-Carnitine supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat to the mitochondria where it is oxidized and converted into ATP (chemical energy for the cell).

ALCAR’s important role in the burning of fat makes it useful in diets for weight loss and overall health maintenance. As a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine, Acetyl L-Carnitine helps maintain healthy cellular energy metabolism
