Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is synthesized from L-carnitine in the brain‚ liver‚ and kidney.
ALC supports fat metabolism and energy production in the mitochondria. In addition‚ ALC supports brain function by enhancing production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
Taken supplementally‚ ALC is better absorbed and crosses the blood-brain barrier better than L-carnitine. Several studies have demonstrated ALC's effectiveness in supporting cognitive health in the elderly‚ especially if supplementation is begun when mental health is thought to be at risk of declining. Other studies have shown ALC may be of benefit for maintaining a positive mood in the elderly‚ possibly by partially inhibiting the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and lowering chronically elevated cortisol levels (which become elevated during stressful situations).

Ratings & ReviewsReview This Item
Overall Rating for Carnityl® - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
from Henderson, NV
For my son
Our doctor suggested that our son who is on the spectrum (Aspergers Syndrome) start Carnityl by Thorne Research to protect his brain from any further damage after his system was overwhelmed with vaccines and Thorne Research was the brand he highly recommended. It is gluten and casin free and does not upset my sons stomach which is an area that we are delicately treating. Since being on this and other supplements we have seen a marked improvement in our son both emotionally and socially.
Gluten Free, Casin Free & No preservatives.
Price but Pure Formulas has the best price I have found so far and I am prepared to pay whatever it takes for the health of my son!
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
