Acetyl L Carnitine   

100 g

Requires script

Summary:

Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown to or may:

  • Play a role in energy production and lipid metabolism.
  • Help the symptoms of physical and mental fatigue.
  • Acetyl-L-carnitine is a bioavailable form of carnitine.

 

Clinical Benefits:

  • Energy production and lipid metabolism: Acetyl-L-carnitine plays an important role in energy production by transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria for fuel.1 Acetyl-L-carnitine may also be helpful in providing neuroprotection by supporting brain energy metabolism.
  • A randomised, placebo, controlled trial measured the effectiveness of 2.0 g of Acetyl-L-carnitine taken twice daily by elderly subjects with fatigue. Acetyl-L-carnitine illustrated a 52% overall improvement in physical fatigue compared to a 4% improvement in the placebo group. There were significant improvements in a variety of physical fatigue parameters including a 49% improvement in prolonged fatigue after exercise and a 27% improvement in muscular pain. Acetyl-L-carnitine also significantly improved mental fatigue by 43% (Figure One).2 In a separate clinical trial, Acetyl-L-carnitine supported cognitive function including concentration in 481 elderly subjects with mild mental impairment.

 

Directions: Adults and children over 5 years: Take 1 level scoop (3.0 g) once or twice daily in juice.

 

Active Ingredients - each 3.0 g dose contains:
