ACETYL L-CARNITINE

250 MG 120 Caps

 

$23.00

Acetyl-L-Carnitine is the acetylated form of the amino acid L-carnitine and is involved in many metabolic functions. As an antioxidant, acetyl carnitine can protect neurons from damage caused by super oxide radicals. Acetyl carnitine is involved in other aspects of neuronal metabolism as its molecular structure resembles the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Also, acetyl carntine supplementation supports energy utilization by its effects of  fatty acid metabolism in the mitochondria.

The acetyl form of carnitine is the most easily assimilated and most stable form of carnitine, and therefore, the most effective.
