Gen-Tec Acetyl L-Carnitine FAQ's:
What is the difference between L-Carnitine and Acetyl L- Carnitine?
Both L-Carnitine and Acetyl L-Carnitine are fat transporters to deliver fatty acids into the mitrochondria (energy producing) of a cell. These fatty acids can be used to power muscles throughout your workout. Acetyl L-Carnitine basically has an acetyl group attached to the carnitine. This acetylised version is able to cross the blood brain barrier where it can also assist mitochondrial performance to enhance cognitive function.
Can I use Gen-Tec Acetyl L-Carnitine with my thermogenic fat burner?
Yes. Acetyl L-Carnitine is stimulant free and as stated above is really a fat transporter, not a fat burner. Thermogenics on the other hand almost always contain stimulants such as caffeine but work to increase heat in the body which aids caloric burning even at rest. These products would work well together if you were looking for faster results.
Can I mix Acetyl L-Carnitine with my protein shake?
