Quick Overview

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a naturally occurring form of L-Carnitine, a vitamin-like nutrient synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine.

Product Description

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a naturally occurring form of L-Carnitine, a vitamin-like nutrient synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. Acetyl-L-Carnitine serves as a transport molecule for "active acetate," which is a source of fuel for metabolic processes that take place in cells. Acetyl-L-Carnitine carries active acetate (the "Acetyl" portion) directly into the mitochondrion, the cell's energy-generating structure. Active acetate is used to produce cellular energy in the form of ATP. Both L-Carnitine and Acetyl-L-Carnitine serve as fat carriers. Unlike L-Carnitine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it has specific benefits for brain neurons. When taken orally, Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown to increase Acetyl-L-Carnitine levels in both blood and cerebrospinal fluid, demonstrating its uptake in the brain.

Best Acetyl-L-Carnitine consists of Biosint Acetyl-L-Carnitine, which is manufactured in Italy by the Sigma Tau company. It is derived from a base of pharmaceutical-grade L-Carnitine manufactured using an FDA-approved process that fully complies with international monograph standards for carnitine production. Known as a global leader in L-Carnitine research, Sigma Tau holds numerous patents for production of L-Carnitine, and its L-Carnitine derivatives, such as Acetyl-L-Carnitine, which are used in clinical trials.
