Details

You are buying Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is an acetylated form of L-carnitine, derived from the amino acids L-lysine and L-methionine, and is naturally produced in the liver and kidneys. ALCAR and L-Carnitine are used in the human body in the catabolism and transport of fatty acids within mitochondria. Additionally, ALCAR is able to enter the central nervous system, where it acts as a powerful antioxidant. In these ways, ALCAR and L-Carnitine are supportive of energy metabolism and the nervous system.

FAQ

Is Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) water soluble?
This product dissolves quickly in water and has a moderately sour but pleasing taste that mixes well with citrus drinks like lemonade. Mix the product with a citrus juice or dissolve in water and drink.

The bioavailability of Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is significantly greater than other carnitine supplements

What is the difference between Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) and L-Carnitine? Is one more effective than the other, or can a person take both?
The difference between Acetyl L-Carnitine and L-Carnitine Base is the attached acetyl group in the Acetyl L-Carnitine versus the free-form amino acid L-Carnitine Base, which does not include this added molecule.

The Acetyl L-Carnitine is considered to have increased bioavailability for crossing neurological membranes and therefore is taken for nootropic and neurological health benefits. The L-Carnitine Base, on the other hand, is generally taken for cardiovascular health and as a fat burner.

ALCAR is generally not recommended as a fat burner and for weight loss because it is too bioactive neurologically. Taking the higher serving sizes necessary to be effective as a fat burner is considered too large an amount given it’s neurological effects.

Both have differing targeted uses although there is overlap, and some recommend taking both

Hard to capsulate. This stuff sticks to itself, and isn't very "powdery" or "grainy" - so it's hard to put into pills :| Wish I got it pre-capsuled.
