Acetyl L-Carnitine Description
Acetyl L-Carnitine is the principal acetyl ester of L-Carnitine (LC), and it plays an essential role in intermediary metabolism, acting as a donor of acetyl groups and facilitating the transfer of fatty acids from cytosol to mitochondria during beta-oxidation. This means it will help you burn fat. ATP's Acetyl L-Carnitine comes in both 100gm (50 serves) and 250gm (125 serves) sizes for your convenience.
Dietary supplementation of Acetyl L-Carnitine exerts neuroprotective, neurotrophic, anti-depressive and analgesic effects in painful conditions. Acetyl L-Carnitine also has antioxidant and anti-apoptotic activity. Moreover, Acetyl L-Carnitine exhibits positive effects on mitochondrial metabolism, and shows promise in the treatment of aging and neurodegenerative pathologies by slowing the progression of mental deterioration.
Fat exhibits a relatively low maximal rate of oxidation in vivo, which begins to decline at around 65% of VO2max when muscle glycogen becomes the major fuel. It is thought that if the rate of fat oxidation during endurance exercise could be augmented, then muscle glycogen depletion could be delayed and endurance improved.
For best results take 2 grams before, during or directly after training. Don’t let the smell turn you off, the right amount mixed into water only has a slight bitter taste, like lemon water or powdered vinegar. Get on it - don’t be a sook.
