The human body uses Acetyl L-Carnitine for fatty acid oxidation, the process in which fatty acids are broken down to create energy. It achieves this by transporting fatty acids across the mitochondria membrane for oxidation to occur.
The highest levels of ALCAR are found in tissues that use fatty acids as their main fuel, namely the skeletal and cardiac muscles. Because of the attached acetyl group, Acetyl L-Carnitine is a cognitive enhancer and neuroprotective agent. It is also able to enter the circulation of the central nervous system, where it acts as a powerful antioxidant. Acetyl L-Carnitine supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat to the mitochondria where it is oxidized and converted into ATP (chemical energy for the cell).
ALCAR’s important role in the burning of fat makes it useful in diets for weight loss and overall health maintenance. As a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine, Acetyl L-Carnitine helps maintain healthy cellular energy metabolism
Add 1.5g of Acetyl L-Carnitine powder (one to two times) to a shaker or a glass filled with 200-300ml of cold water or juice. Then mix it up. ALCAR is best taken 15-30 minutes before exercise.

Due to its pure form, Acetyl L-Carnitine has a slightly tart/sour taste and it may be smelly. We recommend mixing it with juice or any other flavoured liquid.
What is the difference between Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) and L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (LCLT)?
L-carnitine L-Tartrate and Acetyl-L-carnitine are two different forms of the same amino acid. The main difference between them is that Acety l-carnitine is more easily absorbed from the gut, and more readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to reach your brain and nerves. Although they both share the benefits for weight loss, ALCAR is also used for cognitive enhancement.
