This product supports the body as L-carnitine does, being involved in the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates and fats, and especially in the conversion of fats into energy and being used by the body to lower blood triglycerides. In addition, acetyl-L-carnitine crosses the blood brain barrier more sufficiently than L-carninitine, has antioxidant properties and an affinity for nerve cells, potentially being beneficial in protecting the nervous system against oxidative damage. Increased intake of acetyl-L-carnitine has been associated with increased levels of glutathione and CoQ10. It mimics acetylcholine and therefore may positively affect the brain chemistry involved in age-related memory loss and depression, as well as energy production in the brain.
