Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is a highly effective form of carnitine that is best known for its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and optimize brain function.
While most acetyl l carnitine supplements are either bulk powders or in capsules, their absorption is still subject to potential barriers of absorption.
As a liposome encapsulated nutrient, this form of acetyl l-carnitine is absorbed efficiently delivering carnitine to where it’s needed most; within your cells to help with energy production.
What does acetyl carnitine do?
L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid derivative. Your body produces some of it, it’s also found in meats, fish, poultry etc and you can take it as a supplement.
Carnitine’s job is to support your cells’ energy production. It does this by transporting fat into the mitochondria, your cells’ energy unit (like the cell’s furnace). Your cell uses the energy from burning fat to produce THE energy molecule ATP – this is used to fuel your cells.
Carnitine is most concentrated in tissues that use fatty acids as their primary fuel, such as skeletal and cardiac (heart) muscle. Liposomal carnitine is the supplement of choice for anyone wishing to maintain healthy energy levels, brainpower, and nerve function.
Acetyl L-carnitine may help prevent damage caused by free radicals and reduce the effects of oxidative stress. Its powerful effects in the body may increase when taken with alpha lipoic acid.

How do I take carnitine?
As a dietary supplement take one packet 1 to 2 times per day, or as directed by a health care practitioner. For best results, snip or tear the notched end off the packet, squeeze into one or more ounces of your favorite cool beverage, swirl and shoot it back!.
It will enter the bloodstream faster if you take it on an empty stomach and wait at least 15 minutes before eating. It will be absorbed slower when taken with food or after a meal.
We do not recommend mixing any of the products in hot beverages, because this could damage the liposomes. We also do not recommend blending any of our products in a food processor or blender.
