Product Information

Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is synthesized from L-carnitine in the brain, liver, and kidney.

ALC supports fat metabolism and energy production in the mitochondria.* In addition, ALC supports brain function by enhancing production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.*

Taken supplementally, ALC is better absorbed and crosses the blood-brain barrier better than L-carnitine.* Several studies have demonstrated ALC's effectiveness in supporting cognitive health in the elderly, especially if supplementation is begun when mental health is thought to be at risk of declining.* Other studies have shown ALC may be of benefit for maintaining a positive mood in the elderly, possibly by partially inhibiting the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and lowering chronically elevated cortisol levels (which become elevated during stressful situations).*

Mitochondrial Nutrients For Brain Vitality Webinar

Parris Kidd, PhD, provides a lively discussion of the research on essential nutrients for brain function, including CoQ10, lipoic acid, acetyl-L-carnitine, phosphatidylserine, benfotiamine, vitamin B12, folate, glutathione, and more. Proper function of ATP-generating mitochondria is essential to the health of every cell in the body, particularly in brain and nerve cells, and a number of nutrient cofactors are necessary for mitochondrial ATP production. Other nutrients have been researched for their ability to protect mitochondria from damage and enhance mitochondrial activity and brain function.
