Improved L-Carnitine (ALC) supplement

True to our commitment to excellence and innovation, the dietary supplement acetyl-l-carnitine offers an improved, active form of carnitine. This amino acid is involved in transporting fatty acids to the mitochondria so they can be used to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a powerful energy source for the muscles.
In promoting ATP synthesis, L-carnitine plays a key role in the production of cellular energy, as has been confirmed by a number of studies. In particular, scientists have observed an association between the onset of chronic fatigue and carnitine deficiency. As a result, the active form of this amino acid, acetyl-l-carnitine, has been developed as a nutritional supplement, to combat fatigue and stimulate energy production. This energy stimulant is particularly popular with sportspeople keen to take advantage of acetyl-l-carnitine’s benefits for exercise and muscle activity.
In addition to stimulating cellular energy production, acetyl-l-carnitine encourages fat-burning. The formation of ATP requires fats to be broken down, hence acetyl-l-carnitine’s fat-burning and slimming effects. By reducing excess lipids (hyperlipidaemia) in the body, this acetylated carnitine derivative facilitates weight loss and prevents the accumulation of fat mass. Stimulating the breakdown of lipids also helps to prevent the onset of cardiovascular problems such as hypertension.
Acetyl-l-carnitine also offers benefits for the nervous system. While a number of studies have demonstrated neuroprotective effects for both L-carnitine and its acetylated derivative, analyses suggest the latter – acetyl L-carnitine, offers significantly greater neuroprotective activity than the non-acetylated form.

The benefits of this form of carnitine can now be obtained from a nutritional supplement. Containing 500mg of acetyl L-carnitine per capsule, this supplement effectively compensates for any lack of carnitine. The suggested dose varies between two and six capsules a day, according to individual need, and should be taken on an empty stomach. If in doubt, consult your therapist. Other forms of carnitine are also available in the optimised formulation Total Carnit. In a single capsule, this dietary supplement combines: L-carnitine fumarate, acetyl-L carnitine arginate, glycine propionyl-L-carnitine and L-carnitine taurinate.
