Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a modified amino acid that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it is converted into ATP (cellular fuel).* ALC is a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it helps to manage oxidative damage, supports mitochondrial function and helps to maintain normal neurotransmitter activity.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine by ProThera is provided in its stable, hydrochloride form. This supplement helps sustain proper brain and nerve function throughout the aging process. The acetyl group acts as a source of metabolic acetylcholine, a brain neurotransmitter, while L-carnitine carries fatty acids into mitochondrial cells within the heart, nerves, and muscles to be utilized during energy production. This can also be beneficial to cerebral blood flow, membrane stability, and the production of nerve growth factor. Each bottle holds 30 vegetarian capsules which contain 500 mg of acetyl
