Acetyl L Carnitine (ALC or ALCAR) is a naturally occurring amino acid that is made by L-carnitine (LC) – this plays a vital role in energy production and burning fat. It is classed as a “smart drug”, or “Nootropic”, because of how it helps to improve memory, mood and cognitive.
Acetyl L Carnitine is often used in the treatment of conditions that affect the memory, cognition, and mental health, as well as in the treatment of Diabetes. This is because Acetyl L Carnitine boosts the mitochondrial production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), which provides energy to living cells to boost different processes such as muscle contractions, nerve impulses and chemical synthesis. For Diabetes sufferers, Acetyl L Carnitine is used to aid with nerve pain.
