Pure Encapsulations Acetyl-l-Carnitine
offers support metabolism, energy, memory, and attention. A natural compound (derived from lysine an amino acid that serves as a building block for proteins) that may boost energy and promote improved memory. Acetyl-l-carnitine supports acetyl-CoA a metabolite that works to produce energy in the mitochondria--this allows you to work and play to your fullest as well as participate in the physical exercise that promotes overall well-being. In addition it may help protect your heart and central nervous system. Meanwhile acetyl-l-carnitines impact on mental functioning comes from its responsibility for acetylcholine production. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that supports the brain which may help you remember things and pay attention more effectively. Recommended use:
1-4 capsules daily, between meals or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Acetyl-l-Carnitine is a building block for proteins that helps the body produce energy, as well as stabilize cell membranes to support memory, emotional health and cognitive function. *
Promotes memory and attention. * Acetyl-l-carnitine is the acetylated form of l-carnitine, and the two compounds share similar energy and metabolism promoting properties. Found naturally in the body, acetyl-l-carnitine supports the availability of acetyl-CoA, an important energy generating metabolite. In addition, it supports healthy mitochondrial function and cell membrane stability. The acetyl group from acetyl-l-carnitine is also responsible for production of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter for optimal mental functioning. The efficacy of long-term acetyl-l-carnitine supplementation was evaluated in a double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial involving 130 elderly individuals for a one-year period. In this trial, acetyl-l-carnitine supported healthy cognitive function, memory and attention. In another randomized double blind study, three-month acetyl-l-carnitine supplementation provided statistically significant support for mental function, including memory and attention, compared to placebo. A multicenter trial of 481 volunteers indicated memory, behavioral and emotional support with acetyl-l-carnitine supplementation. In an evaluation of 28 elderly individuals using acetyl-l-carnitine or placebo, the supplemented group experienced enhanced emotional well-being. Acetyl-l-carnitine enhances cellular energy and neurotransmitter metabolism, supporting memory, emotional health, and cognitive function.
