Customer Review

“My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s earlier this year. The whole family was devastated by the news because she started deteriorating quite quickly. I searched for things that would help to slow this down. When I discovered acetyl L-carnitine, I was excited to try it out. I have definitely seen that my mother has been declining more slowly than she was before. We know this won’t fix her, but at least we will have more time with her as a family.”– Celine, Bukit Panjang, Singapore.

Product Description

Acetyl L-carnitine, more commonly known as ALCAR, is the modified form of L-carnitine, an amino acid naturally produced in human body which is actively involved in cellular energy production. Unlike L-carnitine, ALCAR has better ability to reach the brain hence supporting brain and nerve functions. It also helps to maintain neurotransmitter production, hence optimizing brain functional ability.  

Other important and key features of Acetyl L-carnitine include:

- Improves brain function and cognition
- Helps in the production of neurotransmitters
- Slows progression of mental disorder,  like Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss
- Easily absorbed by body

Acetyl L-carnitine (ALCAR) is the active form of L-carnitine that could optimize brain support. Many studies have shown that the modified form exerts many positive health benefits, specifically to the brain. This is mainly due to the better ability to cross the blood-brain-barrier, a physical barrier that protects the brain from many harmful substances and bacteria which are found in the blood. With this, ALCAR is able to reach the brain effectively, hence exerting beneficial effects to the brain.

Extensive studies have shown that taking ALCAR is able to boost mental performance as well as reducing mental fatigue due to the ability to increase production of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter found primarily in the brain, is responsible for brain function, including memory and learning. Hence, supplementation with ALCAR has shown to increase cognitive function.

In addition, it is a very powerful antioxidant. What this means is that it neutralizes free radicals which are molecules that are damaging to nerves and DNA, hence causing many adverse effects associated with ageing. ALCAR helps to protect nerves from damage by these free radicals by “mopping” them up in the brain. It also helps to remove other toxins which can be found in the brain, resulting in a reduction of cell death. This brain and nerve- protective effect was most evident in Alzheimer’s patients. Studies showed that patients who are supplemented with ALCAR had a slowed progression of disease due to ALCAR’s potent neuroprotective effects.

    Acetyl L-carnitine is a form of carnitine that works as a carrier for fatty acids during the process of metabolism. It carries fatty acids to mitochondria to be burned as a fuel. Naturally, this nutrient is found in various parts of the body, such as nerves, brain, sperm cells, heart and muscles. Studies have found that this vital nutrient boosts the production of two important neurotransmitters- serotonin and dopamine, which are known as natural stress busters.

    The most important function of acetyl L-carnitine is to promote brain health. It improves memory, enhances cognitive abilities and supports nerve integrity. It is essential  for the normal production of myo-inositol in nerves. Myo-isonitol is required for the transmission of nerve messages. It promotes healthy growth and production of nerve cells as well as nerve fibers. It protects the outer covering of nerve sheaths, and helps the nerve fibers during stressful situations.

     It is an essential component required in the production of acetylcholine, the main ingredient required for better memory and brain function. Healthy levels of this nutrient boost memory, concentration and function. Another way in which acetyl L carnitine can be beneficial to the body is by promoting healthy metabolism of fat and leptin. It supports thyroid gland also.
