Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is synthesized from L-carnitine in the brain, liver, and kidney.
ALC supports fat metabolism and energy production in the mitochondria. In addition, ALC supports brain function by enhancing production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
Taken supplementally, ALC is better absorbed and crosses the blood-brain barrier better than L-carnitine. Several studies have demonstrated ALC's effectiveness in supporting cognitive health in the elderly, especially if supplementation is begun when mental health is thought to be at risk of declining. Other studies have shown ALC may be of benefit for maintaining a positive mood in the elderly, possibly by partially inhibiting the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and lowering chronically elevated cortisol levels (which become elevated during stressful situations).

My mom died of a heart attack at age 65 so I began doing research on what I could do to protect my health. After reading the research on the benefits of A-L-C, I started taking 1,000 mg a day over 15 years ago. More than anything, I find it helps keeps my mind sharp. After trying many brands of A-L-C, there are only two brands I trust for potency and purity: Nutricology and Thorne Research. Do yourself a favor and research A-L-C. It seems expensive but the benefits are worth it to me.
