ACETYL L-CARNITINE occurs when L-Carnitine is combined with an Acetyl group. This variant is often referred to as ALCAR.
ALCAR unlike other carnitine variants, can pass through the blood brain barrier where it helps support brain health.
Carnitine may help transport long chain fatty acids into your mitochondria to be used for energy.
98% of your Carnitine is stored in your skeletal muscle to help with energy transfer. A small amount is stored in your liver and blood.
