The Power Supplement *Acetyl L- Carnitine*

When was the last time you got through a whole day without having to resort to a pick me up? Between kids, your job, working out and chores around the house, your days can be pretty draining. I’m here to tell you about a supplement I stumbled upon recently that can help facilitate fat metabolism, promotes fat loss, increase energy production in our muscles and cells, and increase circulation to the brain- which helps improve memory. Research also suggests that the supplement may help improve symptoms of age-related testosterone decreases in men.

It’s a little Amino Acid called, Acetyl L-Carnitine, and it’s an important compound essential for proper functioning of human cells. It can be obtained through the diet, although the body usually makes plenty on its own. Acetyl L-Carnitine is essential for proper functioning of mitochondria, the “energy factories” of human cells. Studies have generally used acetyl-L-carnitine doses ranging from 1000 mg to 3000 mg per day, usually split up into two or three smaller doses per day. The best times to take it are right when you wake up on an empty stomach and right before working out, for the best benefits.

ALC is legal, shown to be safe and in my opinion, really works. When your muscles have enough of this power supplement, they can easily burn fat or protein for energy. Lactic acid is decreased and muscle fatigue is delayed. What more could a serious gym enthusiast like yourself ask for?
