ACETYL-L-CARNITINE (500 MG)
Carnitine for the brain and nervous system†
Research on this acetylated derivative of L-carnitine has centered largely on its role in maintaining brain and nerve function during aging.† The acetyl group can serve as a metabolic source of acetylcholine, a brain neurotransmitter, while the L-carnitine component carries fatty acids into mitochondria of nerve, heart, and muscle cells for use in energy production.† Other actions benefit membrane stability, production of nerve growth factor, and cerebral blood flow.† Provided in its stable, hydrochloride form.
