Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a modified amino acid that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it is converted into ATP (cellular fuel). ALC is a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it helps to manage oxidative damage, supports mitochondrial function and helps to maintain normal neurotransmitter activity. Clinical studies suggest that ALC helps to maintain optimal neurological health.

Acetyl L-Carnitine has shown promise in spinal cord injuries and non-verbal autistics. My grandson, who is 7 yrs. old and severely autistic, was recently placed on Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg. daily. Within two weeks, he began to verbalize. Though he doesn't have speech like a normal developing child, Acetyl L-Carnitine has definitely helped launch him into verbalization.
reliable and useful

I commenced using this product on the recomendation of a friend who was a brilliant clinical ecologist and psychiatrist after years of using alcohol and other addictive drugs. It is very good for brain function, memory and detoxing the nervous system. I continue to take one a day, years after I stopped unhealthy life habits as a general maintenance support for my mind and body.
Makes a Difference

All I can say is when or if I run out of this supplement I can tell a difference. It rarely happens but that's one way to tell if a supplement is truly effective or not. I have found the NOW brand to be one of many good supplement makers. I will continue using this one. I rarely rate 5 stars but this would be 4-4.5 for me.
Great vegan option

As a vegan consumer, it requires a lot of dedication to find the right products. This product comes in a vegetarian capsule and is cruelty free.
