Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid. Carnitine is acetylated into Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) in the brain, liver, and kidneys. APS provides you with 100% high-grade acetyl l-carnitine, it is formulated to support help your body perform better while dieting. Alcar helps to increase overall recovery times after strenuous training. Alcar is an enhancer and neuroprotective agent that helps to protect against a wide range of age-related degenerative changes in the brain and nervous system. Alcar is an ester of carnitine that modulates cellular concentrations of free coenzyme A and Acetyl-Coenzyme A, two compounds integrally involved in numerous cellular functions. This includes the transfer of fatty acids across mitochondrial membranes for energy production.
Acetyl L-Carnitine is a modified amino acid that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it is oxidized and converted into ATP (chemical energy for the cell). Acetyl L-Carnitine is in a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine that may exhibit antioxidant function and help maintain healthy cellular energy metabolism to support brain function.
