Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) supports youthful cellular function in the muscles, brain, heart, liver, peripheral nerves and immune system.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC), the acetyl ester and biologically active form of L-Carnitine, is an effective delivery form for both L-Carnitine and acetyl groups. Essential for normal mitochondrial function in all cells, L-Carnitine’s primary function is to transport long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria where they are oxidized to produce energy. The acetyl form is unique in that it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it supports energy production in brain cells. The acetyl groups it carries contribute to the production of the important neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. ALC supports youthful cellular function in the muscles, brain, heart, liver, peripheral nerves, and immune system.

L-Carnitine for weight loss

L-carnitine supplementation provides a modest reducing effect on body weight, BMI, and fat mass, especially among adults with overweight/obesity.

L-Carnitine and depression

Acetyl-L-carnitine supplementation significantly decreases depressive symptoms compared with placebo/no intervention while offering a comparable effect with established antidepressant agents with fewer adverse effects.


L-Carnitine for liver health

Meta-analysis indicates the beneficial effect of L-carnitine on total cholesterol and triglyceride in overweight patients with liver disease, particularly patients with chronic hepatitis C, in both long-term and low doses.


L-Carnitine for muscle recovery

L-Carnitine supplementation improves muscle soreness and markers of muscle damage (CK, LDH, and Mb). Overall, L-carnitine supplementation ameliorated muscle damage only in resistance training groups and untrained populations.


L-Carnitine for blood glucose

L-Carnitine could be a valuable dietary supplement in patients with type II diabetes who follow a Mediterranean diet and are under recommended treatment.


Not to be used by pregnant or lactating women.
