What is Acetyl-L-Carnitine?
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is also known as ALCAR. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a dipeptide amino acid, and is more bio-available and stable compared to L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is a derivative of the amino acid, lysine. Its name is taken from the fact that it was first isolated from meat (carnus) in 1905. Only the L-isomer of carnitine is biologically active.
What does Acetyl-L-Carnitine do?
