Acetyl-L-carnitine is a stabilized and more absorbable analog of L-Carnitine. Acetyl-L-carnitine is superior to L-carnitine in terms of bioavailability and it has similar functions.
Agent with superior bioavailability for your muscles
However, despite biochemical connections and several similar properties of L-Carnitine, Acetyl-L-carnitine has some powerful, beneficial properties of its own. Through the certain processes, it relieves the inhibition of many enzymes involving glucose and amino acid catabolism which help you to achieve a bright new level of training and amazing results through getting an incredible amount of energy (1). Acetyl-L-carnitine can help reduce the recovery time from workout to workout (2) by reducing both physical and mental fatigue (3).
A Better focus
The acetyl group that is part of Acetyl-L-carnitine contributes to the production of acetylcholine (4), very important neurotransmitter for peripheral nervous system and central nervous system and may positively impact your eye-hand coordination that is beneficial for better training (5, 6).
Acetyl-L-carnitine influences testosterone levels, prevents their decrease, as well as stimulates testosterone production, especially after chronic exercise stress (7).
Other health benefits
Acetyl-L-Carnitine delays the progression of Alzheimer’s disease (8, 9), as well as, it offers neuroprotective and possibly cognitive-enhancing effects for neuropsychiatric disorders (10), increases sperm motility (11) and supports memory through aging (12).
