Assists with the Conversion of
Fatty Acids into Energy

Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown to or may:

  • Play a role in energy production and lipid metabolism.1
  • Help the symptoms of physical and mental fatigue.2
  • N-acetyl carnitine is a bioavailable form of carnitine.3

Clinical Benefits

  • Energy production and lipid metabolism: N-acetyl carnitine plays an important role in energy production by transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria for fuel.1 N-acetyl carnitine may also be helpful in providing neuroprotection by supporting brain energy metabolism.4,5
  • A randomised, placebo, controlled trial measured the effectiveness of 2.0 g of Acetyl L – Carnitine taken twice daily by elderly subjects with fatigue. N-acetyl carnitine illustrated a 52% overall improvement in physical fatigue compared to a 4% improvement in the placebo group. There were significant improvements in a variety of physical fatigue parameters including a 49% improvement in prolonged fatigue after exercise and a 27% improvement in muscular pain. N-acetyl carnitine also significantly improved mental fatigue by 43% (Figure One).2 In a separate clinical trial, N-acetyl carnitine supported cognitive function including concentration in 481 elderly subjects with mild mental impairment.6
