Olympian Labs Acetyl L-Carnitine, also known as acetylcarnitine or ALCAR, is an advanced form of L-Carnitine. The Acetyl attached to the L-Carnitine molecule allows it to travel from the central nervous system through the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain, where it acts as a powerful antioxidant. The supplement is more rapidly absorbed into your system while it helps produce both energy and important neurotransmitters. This is why research suggests Acetyl L-Carnitine helps support memory, alertness & mental focus in addition to the benefits of L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine transports fatty acids into the cells' fuel burning centers (mitochondria) for the generation of metabolic energy. The highest concentrations of carnitine are found in red meat, but eating a large amount of meat to achieve the same levels found in supplements also introduces large amounts of unwanted fats and calories. There is significant research on L-Carnitines role in supporting heart health and skeletal health as well as its role in normal fat loss. L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid metabolized from Lysine and Methionine.
