Each Capsule Contains:
(N-Acetyl L-carnitine hydrochloride) 500 mg Non-medicinal Ingredients:
Vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant), silica. Recommended use:
Acetyl-L-carnitine is a highly biovailable form of L-carnitine and is able to effectively cross the blood-brain barrier. Acetyl-L-carnitine assists the critical conversion of choline into acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of the most important neurotransmitters necessary for healthy brain function, enhancing physical performance and metabolizing fat. Helps reduce fatigue. Helps support cognitive function in the elderly sub-population. Recommended dose:
Recommended adult dose: 2 capsules 2 times daily with meals or as directed by a health care practitioner. Cautions:
Feelings of overstimulation and/or sleeplessness may occur; discontinue use if feelings persist or worsen. Consult a health care practitioner if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you have been instructed to follow a low protein diet, or if you have a pre-existing seizure disorder, liver or kidney disease. Keep out of reach of children. Allergen Statement:
Contains no artificial colours, preservatives, or sweeteners; no dairy, starch, sugar, wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, corn, egg, fish, shellfish, animal products, salt, tree nuts, or GMOs. Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.
Carnitine and its derivatives exist in a carnitine “pool” in the body. Cellular enzymes and transporters rapidly convert the carnitine to the required form and transport it to the tissues. Carnitine and its derivatives play a key role in fat, carbohydrate, and protein metabolism and energy production and are critical components for mitochondrial metabolism. Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is the most important derivative of carnitine and occurs naturally in the body. Because ALC is considered to have greater bioavailability and is therefore more able to cross neurological membranes, it is the preferred form to take for promoting neurological health.
The levels of carnitine and its derivatives are critical to normal biological functioning. Carnitine is present in the diet in red meats and dairy products, and humans can make carnitine from the amino acids lysine and methionine. However, carnitine deficiency can occur with certain conditions.
ALC has been studied in various conditions including neurological and cognitive disorders, and cardiovascular disease, as well as with respect to the fatigue and pain associated with conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and sciatica.
