WHAT IS ACETYL L CARNITINE?
Acetyl L Carnitine is an acetylated form of L-carnitine. It is naturally produced by the body of the animal, although is often taken as a supplement. Acetyl L-Carnitine is broken down in the blood by plasma esterases to carnitine which is used by the body to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria for breakdown.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
L-Carnitine (and Acetyl-L-carnitine) supports cellular energy metabolism by helping to transport fatty acids into the cell to be used as energy. Acetyl-L-carnitine also supports brain health. Nutrition researchers believe that Acetyl-L-Carnitine improves cognition by enhancing the activity of acetylcholine and/or increasing neuronal metabolism.
ALC may also increase dopamine activity and enhance cerebro-vascular and cardio-vascular blood flow. It may also prevent the decrease of plasma testosterone associated with high training loads, and will likely have a positive effect on your Horse or Camels endogenous testosterone levels.
Supports energy metabolism, supports brain health, and has a positive effect on your Horse or Camels endogenous testosterone levels.
