ACETYL L-CARNITINE CAPSULES
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is the acetylated form of L-Carnitine that is an important amino acid found in both cardiac and skeletal muscle. It is commonly used as a fat metaboliser to convert long chain fatty acids into fuel (ATP) that your body can use for energy.
Vitalstrength Acetyl L Carnitine Capsules are manufactured in accordance and registered with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Registration: AUST L 162512. Availability: Over-the-Counter Pharmacy and specialist retailers.
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AND FAT LOSS
L-Carnitine is widely used by both endurance and strength athletes. Benefits include increased endurance, stamina and energy, improved oxygen uptake, reduced lactate levels during exercise and improved anaerobic strength output. Supplementing with L-Carnitine may also help to stimulate your fat burning metabolism and lose fat at a faster rate. i
The acetyl component of Acetyl L-Carnitine makes it more bioavailable to the brain, as it is more able to cross the blood-brain barrier and may help to maintain healthy brain function. It is also involved in the production of the essential neurotransmitter, acetylcholine which plays a role in memory, mood and learning functions.
OTHER HEALTH BENEFITS
ALC may help to slow the effects of aging in men and may also assist in the production of testosterone and the reduction of catabolic cortisol. Vitalstrength products are becoming increasing popular with a wide range of people who use them for anti-aging, skin conditioning and overall body appearance benefits.
