Acetyl L-Carnitine basic functions are fat metabolism, cognitive function, energy endurance, mood elevator
Gen-Tec ALCA Fuel is 100% pure Acetyl L-Carnitine powder. Acetyl L-Carnitine is a powerful amino acid food which has been shown to stimulate the body’s ability to burn body fat for fuel especially when taken before cardiovascular exercise.
Acetyl L Carnitine also crosses the blood/brain barrier to enhance brain function and concentration. Clinical trials have shown Acetyl L Carnitine to improve nerve conduction and velocity, thereby improving reflex’s and co-ordination.
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) plays a critical role in not only lipid and energy metabolism but also within nerve cells of the central nervous system (CNS) (Rebouche, 2012). Research shows that in the periphery skeletal muscle sites, ALC is a co-factor for beta-oxidation (metabolism of fatty acids) whereby it mops up available fats to be sent to the muscle cells for metabolism (Stephens et al., 2007, Kido et al., 2001). More specifically it translocates long chain fatty acids (LCFA) to the mitochondrial matrix where it can undergo beta –oxidation and enter the Kreb cycle for fat derived ATP re-synthesis (Stephens et al., 2007). This involvement in fat metabolism is also one way by which ALC assists with energy levels during exercise
Suggested use: Mix ½ teaspoon (2 grams) in pineapple juice or water 20 - 30 minutes before aerobic exercise.
