The Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a modified amino acid that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into mitochondria, where it is oxidized and converted into Adenosine-5''-triphosphate (ATP) (transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism).
The Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a highly bioavailable form of L-carnitine, which increases the permeability of the membrane of the mitochondria thus allowing the penetration in this larger amount of fatty acids to burn (especially during aerobic exercise), thus simultaneously energy reserves of the organism.
Even states that can facilitate the oxidation of pyruvic acid, which may enhance glucose utilization and reduces the production of lactic acid during exercise.
Also has antioxidant, helps maintain healthy cellular energy metabolism and supports brain function.
The acetyl form of carnitine offers particular benefits in cognitive functions in healthy subjects and in improving memory and mental alertness, especially in the elderly and persons with senile breakdown.
But what is the difference between Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) and L-Carnitine (LC); The L-carnitine used by the body to transport long chain fatty acids into mitochondria where they are burned for energy.
During this process becomes Acetyl-L-Carnitine (acetyl form of carnitine).
It has also been used for decades as a supplement to its important role in fat metabolism and heart health.
Despite the fact that these compounds may have some similar results are not interchangeable.
First, high levels of L-Carnitine can effectively reduce the amount of Acetyl-L-Carnitine which penetrates the brain or eliminate the effects of nerve cells.
Much of the ALC we get converted in the body in LC during its metabolism, giving us the benefits of two, has shown that ALC has better results on the energy production in mitochondria.
Thus, it seems wise to get your body the necessary amounts of L-carnitine and ALC from daily supplementation Acetyl-L-Carnitine.
The products of carnitine NOW is the same form found in nature, L-carnitine, with undetectable levels of synthetic D-Carnitine.
