ABOUT Acetyl-L-Carnitine Supplement:
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is an acetylated form of L-carnitine that may assist in cardiovascular function, energy metabolism and weight management.*
ACETYL-L-CARNITINE (ALCAR) MAY HELP TO:
• ASSIST IN CARDIOVASCULAR FUNCTION*
• SUPPORT ENERGY AND METABOLISM*
• ASSIST WITH WEIGHT MANAGEMENT*
|Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR) is an acteylated form of L-carnitine that assists in cardiovascular function, energy metabolism and weight management. To maximize the efficiency of ALCAR in the body, we recommend you take it alongside alpha lipoic acid, choline & caffeine, as these assist in the cleansing of the mitochondria and support carnitine deposition and production in the muscles.
Acetyl-L-carnitine is a form of nootropic & pseudovitamin, an amino acid naturally produced in the body to assist in physical breakdown, oxidation and metabolism of fatty acids for energy production and output. In supplementation studies, science has found that oral supplementation of L-carnitine and the related compound Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) are shown to alleviate signs of aging and disease on mitochondria (the body’s membrane for producing energy), support the mitochondria’s potential to burn fat, support the capacity of the mitochondria to uptake fatty acids, support alertness, provide neural support (nervous system & neurons) and protect networks, alleviate effects of aging such as neurological decline and chronic fatigue and support insulin sensitivity and blood vessel health.
The standard dose for ALCAR ranges from 500-2,500mg, which is why ALCAR is a versatile supplement at 500mg per serving.
It is recommended to supplement with ALCAR when participating in an activity that gets your heart rate into the fat burning zone (roughly 55-65% of your max heart rate) as increased circulation and oxygen activity in the muscles has been shown to increase the bio-availability of ALCAR.
