Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid important to fatty acid oxidation and energy metabolism processes that supports healthy neurological and cellular functions, promotes balanced moods, and assists with healthy responses to oxidative stress.
The ingredients in Acetyl-L-Carnitine are dosed in a manner that is congruous with what research suggests to be effective and safe, particularly for promoting optimal neurological health.
Clinical evidence and research cited herein shows that the ingredients in Acetyl-L-Carnitine may:
Promotes healthy brain function
Supports energy metabolism
Supports healthy immune function
Supports healthy response to oxidative stress
Promotes balanced moods
Promotes exercise capacity

Recommendations: Take one capsule twice daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
Warnings: If you are pregnant, nursing, or taking medication, consult your healthcare practitioner before use. Keep out of reach of children.
Acetyl-L-carnitine crosses the blood-brain barrier to carry fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane where it supports energy metabolism. The positive role that acetyl-L-carnitine plays in mitochondrial metabolism also supports healthy responses to oxidative stress and healthy immune function.
Clinical studies show dietary supplementation with acetyl-L-carnitine may promote neuronal effects such as promoting healthy cell proliferation. Acetyl-L-carnitine may also play a critical part in supporting balanced moods. Recent research focuses on the role of acetyl-L-carnitine in promoting exercise capacity in an already healthy athletic population due to its role in supporting energy metabolism.
