You might have heard of L-Carnitine and heard that it has some fat burning properties in supplemental form. L-Carnitine is an amino acid that aids in shuttling fat into the muscle cell to be burned . . . but the body can synthesize its own and after years of study, I still don't see significant virtue in L-Carnitine supplementation. Acetyl L-Carnitine is different. If you begin to explore the research, it appears to have properties that rival claims made by many disappointing drugs, especially in the area of brain function and anti-aging.

It is derived from L-carnitine, and is synthesized in the brain and the liver by an enzyme called acetyl-L-carnitine-transferase. In turn, Acetyl L-carnitine can facilitate the release and synthesis of acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter enhancing the release of dopamine. It further assists in optimal transport of electrons and transmission of signals throughout the nervous system.

In summary it’s fair to say ALC can have a profound effect
