Acetyl L-Carnitine is a form of carnitine that is efficiently absorbed and involved in a multitude of metabolic processes in the human body.
 
  • Assists fat metabolism
  • Boosts energy production
  • Aids exercise performance
  • Improves cognitive performance

Supplementary Acetyl L-Carnitine can assist fat burning and exercise performance as well as help improve memory and neural function.

What is it? Carnitine is a conditionally essential nutrient which plays an important role in normal cellular metabolism. It can be obtained from our diet or can be synthesised by our bodies from the amino acids methionine and lysine. It is found predominantly in meat and animal products, with red meat being the best source. Dairy products also contain carnitine but to a lesser extent.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is an ester; it is an acetylised form of carnitine and is part of the total body carnitine pool. As a supplement, it has superior bioavailability to L-carnitine. Animal studies point to ALC being more readily released across the intestinal wall into circulation than L-carnitine (Rebouche, Ann N.Y. Acad. Sci. 1033:30-41).

Role of Carnitine in Fat Metabolism Carnitine plays an important role in the oxidation of fatty acid. It is required for the transport of long chain fatty acids into cell mitochondria where they are used for fuel. It also facilitates the removal of short and medium chain fatty acids which accumulate in the mitochondria as a result of abnormal metabolism (Ames & Jiankang Ann N.Y. Acad. Sci. 1033:108-116,2004). In short, it helps turn fat into energy. Carnitine supplementation has been shown to increase fatty acid oxidation while having no effect on protein breakdown (Wutzke et al. Metabolism. Aug 2004; 53(8):1002-6). ALC can substitute for L-carnitine in fat metabolism and also has a number of other unique biological characteristics.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine for Sports People Carnitine has a number of functions in the body that may positively affect exercise performance. It increases blood flow by enhancing fatty acid oxidation in the arterial wall and it detoxifies ammonia, which is a metabolic by-product associated with fatigue. (Kanter & Williams. Int Jnl Sports Nut.Supp Vol 5, June 1995)

The acetyl group on ALC may be utilised for production of energy in the Krebs cycle. This frees an important co-factor (CoA) which is required for the conversion of carbohydrates to energy.

 

Directions:

2 Capsules twice daily (2000mg).  Have two capsules with a glass of water first thing in the morning. Take another two capsules 60 minutes prior to exercise.

Alternatively, take the second dose mid-afternoon on an empty stomach.

Best results are achieved in conjunction with a diet low in saturated fats with plenty of vegetables and low G.I. carbohydrate sources.

Servings:

Container: 120 Capsules
One Serving: 2 Capsules
Servings Per Container: 60
