Acetyl-L Carnitine or simply called as ALC is the biological active form of Carnitine. Its name was derived from the Latin word “carnus” which means meat, based where the substance is found.   It is one of the nutrients that keep our body balanced. It’s a substance found from cells in the body that turns fat into metabolic energy. It is a supplement for fatty acid oxidation.  

Today several dietary supplements use acetyl-L-Carnitine as one of its components due to its positive effect on our body, it burns fat and we lose weight. Fatty acids are one of the energy sources of our body, and L-carnitine plays an important role in burning them and turning them into energy. Studies show that L-Carnitine is mostly found on red meats and dairy products. This shows that veggies and fruits have no carnitines at all. Acetyl-L-carnitine however is used nowadays as a useful medicine to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. It also serves as an antioxidant in our brain because it has the ability to cross brain barriers resulting to prevention of brain cell disorientation.

ALC also helps improve male fertility. It increases sperm motility, causing sperm cells to move actively. That’s the reason why study shows that men find it useful for treating male menopause or having low testosterone level due to aging, infertility and a certain disease in the penis called Peyronie’s disease.  

In addition ALC also improves insulin response and proved to have a positive effect on muscular diseases and heart problems. Since it serves as an antioxidant in the brain, it is now used for variety of mental illnesses such as age-related memory loss, the well-known Alzheimer’s disease, thinking problems related to alcoholism, late-life depression, and many others. Acetyl-L-carnitine is also proved to be useful in patients with atherosclerosis, its difficult for them to walk due to lack of blood flow to the legs. Also, ALC doesn’t increase blood flow but improves muscle’s ability function under difficult situations.
