Acetyl L-Carnitine is a the Carnitine amino acid bonded together in what is called an ” Acetylated” form.
The Acetyl L- Carnitine form is known to bypass the blood-brain ” Barrier” this in effect allows the L-Carnitine to then pass into the bloodstream at a faster rate and higher absorption rate than standard L-Carnitine that has a very poor absorption into the bloodstream at only 14-18 %. Standard L-Carnitine must go through the large intestine for absorption making it extremely poor bioavailability.
Acetyl L-Carnitine has been shown to help boost brain function by almost protecting the Neron pathways but because of its better absorption, it has the ability to shuttle lipids ( Fats ) from the bloodstream to the Mitochondria where it can then be used as a form of Energy.
Other Benefits of Acetyl L-Carnitine are :
- Improving Insulin Sensitivity
- Improves Mental alertness
L-Carnitine has also been shown to reduce exercise-induced muscle damage, muscular fatigue, and reduce soreness.
A study conducted by Volek et al. (2002) found that supplementation with L-Carnitine daily for one week in healthy resistance trained men was able to reduce markers of muscle damage after weight lifting. It was also discovered that biomarkers of oxidative damage reduced to baseline sooner than placebo.
Ho et al. (2010) discovered that middle-aged males and females who supplemented with L-Carnitine over a 24-day period experienced less muscle damage and soreness following exercise and had less oxidative markers in serum after exercise.
