One of the most effective nutrients in enhancing mental quickness, acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) has been used for years in Europe. This powerful cousin of L-Carnitine has been dubbed “The King of Carnitines” because of its ability to improve brain function while still providing all the benefits that L-Carnitine is known for. When you add an acetyl group to an amino acid (e.g. N Acetyl Cysteine, Acetyl L-Tyrosine or Acetyl L-Carnitine) you make it more soluble in blood serum so more of the amino gets absorbed. About 7.5 to 10.2% of the carnitine in the body is in the form of ALC.
In addition to improving solubility, the acetyl group helps provide additional benefits when using ALC.
