Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid. Carnitine is acetylated into Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) in the brain, liver, and kidneys.

The amino acid L-Carnitine plays a vital role in energy metabolism, specifically the transport of fatty acids into mitochondria where they can be oxidized. ALCAR is the most popular form of supplemental carnitine. ALCAR has a nutrient repartitioning affect, meaning it aids in sending nutrients to skeletal muscle where they can be used for energy over sending nutrients to fat cells where they can be stored. What this means is ALCAR has the ability to aid in muscle growth and fat loss by increasing fat oxidation and cellular metabolism. A study done on women found that supplementing with ALCAR increased fat loss and fat oxidation during exercise. ALCAR increases exercise performance by increasing fat oxidation, decreasing muscle soreness and lactic acid accumulation. ALCAR is a potent antioxidant shown to have anti-aging, cardio-protective, cognitive enhancing, and adaptogen properties.*
