Acetyl L-Carnitine is a molecule that occurs naturally in the brain, liver and kidney and diminish as we age. Some of the primary used of acetyl L-Carnitine are as follows: May Enhance cognition. Involved in the metabolism of food into energy. Reports indicate that Acetyl L-Carnitine may be effective in the treatment of dementia. May improve visual memory and attention. May reduce severity of depressive symptoms in the elderly. May improve both spatial and temporal memory, and reduce the amount of oxidative damage to RNA in the brain's hippocampus, an area important in memory. Acetyl L-Carnitine is a stabilized and more absorbable form of the amino acid L-Carnitine. Acetyl L-Carnitine plays an important role in protecting and supporting brain and muscle function. As an antioxidant, Acetyl L-Carnitine protects neurons from damage caused by superoxide radicals. Acetyl L-Carnitine is involved in aspects of neuronal metabolism because its molecular structure resembles the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Supplementing with Acetyl L-Carnitine may improve acetylcholine production and stimulation of protein and membrane phospholipid synthesis.
Research on Acetyl L-Carnitine shows it can be very useful in supporting normal brain function, and possibly be useful for strokes, Down's syndrome and the management of various neuropathies. The effects of supplementing with Carnitine arnitine has been extensively researched in many areas, including exercise performance, weight loss, treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetic neuropathy, depression and other neurological disorders, treatment of alcoholism, treatment of cardiovascular diseases, insulin resistance, and many others.
Recommended Usage: As a dietary supplement, take 1000 mg (1/4 scoop) 1 to 3 times per day preferably on an empty stomach, or as directed by your qualified health consultant. Some powdered items may be hygroscopic and may clump during shipment. This does not effect the efficacy of the product, only the texture. 1 scoop = 4 serving = 4 gram (4000 mg) = 1 teaspoon.
