Description

Acetyl-L-Carnitine, the acetylated form of L-carnitine, is an amino acid (a building block for proteins) that is naturally produced in the body.  Both L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine have similar energy and metabolism promoting properties.‡

Acetyl-L-Carnitine is found naturally in the body and supports the availability of acetyl-CoA, an important energy generating metabolite.  Additionally, it supports proper mitochondrial function and cell membrane stability.  The acetyl group that is part of Acetyl-L-Carnitine contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is required for mental function.‡
