Why it Works:
Over the course of life, the cells in the body naturally experience a decline in the parts of cells that produce energy. This is one of the key reasons for the onset and advance of the natural ageing process. When cells produce less energy, it simultaneously reduces their metabolic activity [1-7]. Waste inside the cells is also accumulated more rapidly [1-7].
Luckily, L-carnitine can support youthful cell energy production and cell metabolism, because it helps to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria (the "powerhouses of the cell") that reside inside the cell [8-13].
Since fatty acids are important to fuel for cellular energy production, the transport of fatty acids is essential to cellular energy production. This is especially worth to take note of when considering that the mitochondria make as much as 95% of the energy that the cells use, called ATP.
By supplementing with L-carnitine, you can help your cells get the raw materials they need for cellular energy production, which helps your cells stay "young".
Moreover, the L-carnitine in this product comes in the acetylated form, which can also support brain health.
The Science Behind the Product:
The L-carnitine in this product comes in an advanced acetylated form, which, aside from helping the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria, also supports brain health. Acetyl-L-carnitine facilitates the release and synthesis of a substance known as acetylcholine, which is an important neurotransmitter [16,17]. Moreover, Acetyl-L-carnitine can also help enhance dopamine release from neurons, and can also help bind dopamine to specific receptors [14, 15, 18, 19]. Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate enhances the benefits of acetyl-L-carnitine even further by supporting the connections between nerve cells.
