ALC + is an Acetyl L-Carnitine supplement able to convert body fat into energy and reduce feelings of fatigue.
Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is an acetylated form of L-carnitine. This form of the substance is better absorbed by the body and, due to its higher lipophilicity, is able to pass through the blood-brain barrier as well as cell membranes to reach the muscle In the body, and more precisely in the blood, it gets broken down into carnitine molecules by plasma esterases. The carnitine is then used to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria for energy production. It has been proven that the absence of this substance leads to reduced energy production and an increase in adipose tissue. Its ability to increase the metabolic efficiency of lipid utilization in addition to increasing the possibility of consuming body fat during physical activity, is greatly appreciated by athletes participating in both resistance training and strength training. Moreover, it seems to have anti-catabolic properties and may be able to increase resistance to fatigue.
In the central nervous system, ALC+ interacts with the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which may help fight against Alzheimer's disease, carrying out an antioxidant action. Carnitine also has cardio and vasoprotective properties. It increases peripheral vasodilatation, improving the flow and distribution of oxygen. Carnitine also helps lower cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and raises HDL values, reducing the risk of deposits in blood vessels. Carnitine has been proven to lower the level of the lipoproteins responsible for heart attacks. Because of its abilities to convert fats into energy and to reduce the formation of lactic acid, carnitine is also widely utilized in the sports world to improve athletic performance.
