ATP Science Acetyl L-Carnitine is a pure powder free from fillers, sweeteners and flavours that may be added to pre-workouts, intra-workouts, juice or another flavoured beverage. Acetyl L-Carnitine offers a range of benefits, supporting beta-oxidation of fats for increased thermogenesis and energy production, enhanced mood and cognitive function, increased antioxidant status and recovery from exercise.
- Boost Fat Burning.
- Support Energy Synthesis.
- Enhance Learning and Memory.
- Natural Mood Supporter.
- GMO Free and Gluten-Free.
L-Carnitine is a dipeptide, meaning that it is composed of two amino acids, in this case methionine and lysine. These two amino acids are essential, as we can not synthesise them endogenously. Because of this, our dietary or supplemental intake reflects the level in the body, as demonstrated in research back in the year 2000, published in a journal called Physiological Research.
Clinical research is indicating that Carnitine supplementation, particularly acetyl-l-carnitine, offers numerous benefits likely attributed to the acetyl group. This indicates that the acetyl form may be superior to standard Carnitine preparations, depending on the results you seek.
Carnitine is naturally synthesized in the human body and transports long-chain fatty acids from the cytosol—the "space" inside the cell—to the mitochondria, where they undergo oxidation via beta-oxidation. This process is important in supporting the generation of ATP or energy, through oxidative phosphorylation, wherein fats are converted to energy.
A review and meta-analysis of Carnitine supplements for weight loss indicates that there is an additional weight loss of 1.33kg when weight loss programs included carnitine supplementation, with more benefits gained the longer the product was used.
Furthermore, acetyl-L-carnitine has demonstrated neuroprotective (nerve/brain protection), antioxidant and anti-depressant activity. This may be by increasing energy or ATP availability within neurons. However, the acetyl group donation seen with products like ATP Science Acetyl L-Carnitine may allow for increased acetylcholine synthesis, a neurotransmitter found in the brain and associated with learning and memory.
Acetyl-L-carnitine has also been shown to reduce muscle soreness after exercise, perhaps by improving blood flow and oxygen supply during exercise. Carnitine has also been shown to increase muscle mass and decrease body fat levels, as well as reducing physical and mental fatigue in older adults. Carnitine is a dipeptide, beneficial for a great deal more than simply burning fat, and an important part of anyone wanting to support general health or enhance body composition and exercise recovery. ATP Science Acetyl L-Carnitine is a clean and completely vegan supplement that can be taken daily to boost your levels of this exciting and therapeutically-potent dipeptide.
How to Use ATP Science Acetyl-L-Carnitine
For optimal results take 2g of ATP Acetyl L-Carnitine before, intra or directly post-workout. Alternatively, take first thing in the morning.
