Pure Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) Powder (1 lb) Bulk Supplements Description
How Acetyl L- Carnitine works inside your body: Acetyl-L-carnitine is one of several forms of carnitine at work in your body. Carnitines carry certain fatty acids to mitochondria to be burned as fuel. They also carry away the waste products of this process. In a healthy body, the kidneys regulate the level of carnitine — if you have too much, they get rid of what you don’t need. If your diet is low in carnitine, the kidneys hang on to what you have. All carnitines are antioxidants, and because you can manufacture them yourself, they’re classed as nonessential nutrients. The way acetyl-L-carnitine works with your mitochondria helps your body metabolize fat. That makes it an appealing prospect for weight loss as well as for mental function, since the nervous system relies on certain fats.
