Summary

Acetyl L-Carnitine, also known as ALCAR, is the amino acid L-Carnitine bonded with an Acetyl group. 

Benefits

Cognitive Health

Acetyl L-Carnitine supplementation promotes cellular health in the brain. [1,2,3] Memory

Some individuals experience benefits in short and long-term memory while taking this supplement. [4,5,6] One study showed ALCAR supplementation is able to promote a healthy memory.* [7]

Mood

Due to ALCAR”™S effects, some individuals will notice a pleasant boost in mood. Using ALCAR with Alpha-Lipoic Acid further enhances these mood-boosting effects.* [8]

ALCAR Supplements for Athletes

Energy Metabolism

Carnitine is responsible for delivering fatty acids to the mitochondria which are responsible for energy utilization in all cells. This activity promotes a healthy metabolic rate.* [9]

Muscle Endurance

ALCAR supplements aid in the reduction of the amount of lactic acid produced during high-intensity exercise.* Lactic acid is responsible for muscle soreness and fatigue. With lactic acid production reduced, athletes are able to work out longer with increased intensity. [9]

Acetyl L-Carnitine Dosage

Take one 500mg serving (1 rounded 1/8 tsp. scoop) blended with 8-12oz. of water, juice or sports drink, once daily. To maximize cognitive benefits, consider stacking with a choline source.

ALCAR ALA

Both of these supplements promote cellular health and provide preworkout benefits. They also have related mechanisms of action when taken together, effects are amplified.* [10]

ALCAR and ALA should be taken in a 2:1 ratio. The recommended dosage for this stack is 500mg of ALCAR and 250mg of ALA.
