Acetyl-L Carnitine, Brain Health, 100 Capsules, 500mg, Acetyl L-Carnitine, NOW
Important Nutrient For Enhancing Mental Performance And Function!
The acetyl group that is part of acetyl-L-carnitine contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is required for mental function. Several double-blind clinical trials suggest that acetyl-L-carnitine delays the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and enhances overall performance in some people with Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s research has been done with the acetyl-L-carnitine form, rather than the L-carnitine form, of this nutrient.
One double-blind trial has found that acetyl-L-carnitine may be helpful for people with degenerative cerebellar ataxia, a loss of muscular coordination caused by disease in the cerebellum (the hind part of the brain that controls muscle tone and balance). Taking NOW Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a smart choicle in ensursing brain health for years to come.
Acetyl L Carnitine is a more bioavailable form of L-Carnitine and is involved in many metabolic functions. As an antioxidant, acetylcarnitine protects neurons from damage caused by superoxide radicals. Acetylcarnitine is involved in other apsects of neuronal metabolism because its molecular structure resembles the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcarnitine supplementation supports energy utilization by its effects on fatty acid metabolism in the mitochondria.
Acetyl L Carnitine (ALC) is a naturally occurring form of L Carnitine, a vitamin-like nutrient synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. ALC plays a key role in the production of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter for brain and nerve cell function.
Acetyl L carnitine (ALC) is an ester of the trimethylated amino acid, L carnitine, and is synthesized in the human brain, liver, and kidney by the enzyme ALC-transferase. Acetyl L carnitine facilitates the uptake of acetyl CoA into the mitochondria during fatty acid oxidation, enhances acetylcholine production, and stimulates protein and membrane phospholipid synthesis. ALC, similar in structure to acetylcholine, also exerts a cholinomimetic effect. Studies have shown that ALC may be of benefit in treating Alzheimer's dementia, depression in the elderly, HIV infection, diabetic neuropathies, ischemia and reperfusion of the brain, and cognitive impairment of alcoholism.
