Herbs of Gold Acetyl L-Carnitine is a versatile product, that is useful for so much more than what it is primarily sold for, i.e., fat burning. Research has been delineating more precise details regarding this super dipeptide over the past few decades. Dipeptide = two amino acids linked together, in this case, methionine and lysine. It's kind of somewhere between an amino acid and a protein, which can be absorbed in tact without degradation in the gastrointestinal tract.
You will notice that there is an acetyl in the title of Herbs of Gold Acetyl L-Carnitine. So, you're not just getting the dipeptide, but also an acetyl group, which is important to ensure that this nutrient can pass through the blood brain barrier and donate acetyl groups to support the synthesis of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine has been identified as a supporter of memory and learning ability1.
Furthermore, Herbs of Gold Acetyl L-Carnitine may also be used to support mitochonrial health and natural energy production. In fact, a clinical trial in chronic fatigue syndrome sufferers demonstrated that it improves energy levels2. This is likely due to the fact that carnitine plays the important role of transporting long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria for energy synthesis. Hence, its use in fat burning or weight loss programs.
And it has been shown to be helpful for this purpose too. An extensive systematic review and meta-analysis undertaken in 2016 indicated that carnitine use during a weight loss program led to 1.3kg more fat loss, compared to placebo3. So, Herbs of Gold Acetyl L-Carnitine certainly is a versatile product.

This makes Herbs of Gold Acetyl L-Carnitine a great product for use before and/or after exercise, as well as when the mood needs a boost in the general direction of positive.
