- Brain Protection and Circulatory Support
- Dietary Supplement
Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate is a novel molecular combination of the amino acids Acetyl-L-Carnitine and L-Arginine. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid found in high concentration in human brain, nerve, heart, liver and sperm cells. Acetyl-L-Carnitne supports energy production, vita the metabolism of fatty acids to yield the universal energy molecule ATP. As an antioxidant, Acetyl-L-Carnitine helps to protect neurons affected by superoxide radicals.
L-Arginine is utilized to produce nitric oxide, an important compound involved in circulation, and creatine, a compound needed to regenerate ATP stores.

Growth of new neurites.
Growth of new neurites.
I've been taking ALCA in combination with ALCAR, as the two different forms are synergistic. Individually they both possess the ability to stimulate new neurite growth, however together they are far more potent. Another winning combo for neurite growth is Uridine/Choline/DHA, which has the ability to increase intellect within gerbils, and no doubt in humans as well.

I think this is making a difference but still too soon to know.

But haven't felt any extra energy or particular alertness from using these.

A good product for reasonable price.
Misleading Front cover and name

Please note that the 500 printed on the front label and used in the name is not the actual amount of Arginate, but the total weight of the capsule. I was taking Life Extension's Arginate product before, they are large capsules that provide 320mg of Arginate per capsule. I thought this would be more efficient and save me from having to take 3-4 capsules to 2-3 capsules. However as soon as I opened it and saw what tiny capsules are inside I knew it was a lie. I emailed Jarrow about this who pretended to not understand what I was saying. Below is what they wrote: Thanks for your inquiry. 500 mg. is the total weight. The amount of acetyl l-carnitine provided (elemental amount) listed on the back of the bottle's Nutrition Facts Panel is 200 mg.
