L-Carnitine Absorption and Metabolism 

L-carnitine is a nutrient factor synthesised by mammals and found mainly in muscle, kidney, liver and brain tissue. The total L-carnitine pool in mammals including humans is made up of L-carnitine as well as acylcarnitine esters of which acetyl-L-carnitine is … Continue reading

Acetyl-L-Carnitine to Restore L-Carnitine Levels

L-carnitine is a nutrient substance that is involved in the metabolism of lipids. L-carnitine plays a pivotal role in transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria where they are oxidised for energy production. L-carnitine may play a role in general lipid … Continue reading

Acetyl-L-Carnitine to Treat Depression in the Elderly

Acetyl-L-carnitine may be a useful treatment for mood disorders including depression. The exact reason for this is not known but it is thought that the nutrient acts to stabilise brain function by conferring neuroprotection from the disruptive influence of chronic … Continue reading

Acetyl-L-Carnitine Against Depression

Acetyl-L-carnitine is a derivative of the nutrient factor L-carnitine. Evidence suggests that acetyl-L-carnitine is able to significantly affect brain behaviour through changes in energy metabolism and its neuroprotective effects. In one double-blind placebo controlled trial involving human subjects, researchers administered … Continue reading

Acetyl-L-Carnitine To Treat Anxiety

Acetyl-L-carnitine is a derivative of the nutrient L-carnitine. L-Carnitine is synthesised by animals and is found mainly in muscle tissue. Acetyl-L-carnitine has been shown to possess specific effects on the brain because it may improve brain energy metabolism and may … Continue reading

Acetyl L-Carnitine Improves Glucose Control

L-carnitine is a non-essential nonproteinaceous amino acid in human nutrition. L-carnitine is manufactured in humans, but can be ingested in the diet, with good sources being animal flesh. L-carnitine is involved in the transport of long chain fatty acids into … Continue reading

Acetyl L-Carnitine and Lipoic Acid: Brain Protectors

Neuronal dysfunction in the brains of mammals is theorised to be caused by oxidative stress. The cell membranes of neurones in the central nervous system contain high concentrations of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids because these fatty acids facilitate membrane … Continue reading
