Acetyl-L Carnitine (500mg) Overview
One the best brain-boostng supplements, NOW's Acetyl L-Carnitine may be your best all-around option for promoting better memory, concentration, mood and alertness. Although not a stimulant itself, acetyl l-carnitine plays a specific role in energy production within brain cells and neurons. Increasing energy levels within the brain benefits all brain functions. Acetyl L-carnitine (also known as ALCAR) has been extensively studied and is very safe to use. ALACR can be incredibly useful to the elderly, students, teachers, attorneys, trainers, or anyone else who needs maximum mental energy and focus without the complications of caffeine and stimulants. Most people need to experiment a little to find out what dose works best. We suggest starting with 1000-1500 mg (2-3 capsules) taken on an empty stomach in the morning immediately followed by a breakfast that includes protein and healthy fats such as lecithin. Since acetyl L-carnitine is one of the most expensive supplement ingredients, you'll definitely want to go with a dependable brand like NOW Foods.
Acetyl-L Carnitine (500mg) Description from Now
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 carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it helps to neutralize free radicals, supports mitochondrial function and helps to maintain normal neurotransmitter activity. Clinical studies suggest that ALC helps to maintain optimal neurological health.
