Assists With The Conversion Of Fatty Acids Into Energy.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown to or may:
• Play a role in energy production and lipid metabolism.
• Help the symptoms of physical and mental fatigue.
• Acetyl-L-carnitine is a bioavailable form of carnitine.
Energy production and lipid metabolism: Acetyl-L-carnitine plays an important role in energy production by transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria for fuel. Acetyl-L-carnitine may also be helpful in providing neuroprotection by supporting brain energy metabolism.
A randomised, placebo, controlled trial measured the effectiveness of 2.0 g of Acetyl-L-carnitine taken twice daily by elderly subjects with fatigue. Acetyl-L-carnitine illustrated a 52% overall improvement in physical fatigue compared to a 4% improvement in the placebo group. There were significant improvements in a variety of physical fatigue parameters including a 49% improvement in prolonged fatigue after exercise and a 27% improvement in muscular pain. Acetyl-L-carnitine also significantly improved mental fatigue by 43%.
In a separate clinical trial, Acetyl-L-carnitine supported cognitive function including concentration in 481 elderly subjects with mild mental impairment.
