Studies have shown Acetyl-L-Carnitine can slow the progression of age-related mental decline and may be used to form neurotransmitters.

What is Acetyl L-Carnitine?

Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a carnitine derivative and an ammonium compound derived from the amino acid Lysine. Both Acetyl L-Carnitine and L-Carnitine are used by the body to transport long chain fatty acids to the mitochondria in your cells, where they are burned for energy. Since this fat burning is such a major source of muscular energy, deficiencies in either compound are manifested as low energy levels and muscular weakness. Acetyl-L-Carnitine deficiencies can also appear as mental confusion or cloudiness.

Health Benefits Of Acetyl L-Carnitine

Over the last decade, there has been an increase in studies of the aging mind. Many of these studies have shown that Acetyl-L-Carnitine can either slow the onset and progression of age-related mental decline or it may alleviate some of the symptoms associated with it.

 

Regarding age-related low mood, Acetyl-L-Carnitine seems to work in much the same way as it may with mental decline. Simply put, it may increase the levels of various neurotransmitters and thereby alleviate some of the symptoms of age-related low mood.

 

Acetyl-L-Carnitine may also be beneficial to both cardio function and nervous system decline which results from poor blood-sugar regulation.

Acetyl-L-carnitine is similar in form to the amino acid L-carnitine and also has some similar functions, such as being involved in the metabolism of food into energy. The acetyl group that is part of acetyl-L-carnitine contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is required for mental function.

  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
