Acetyl-L-carnitine plays a key role in helping to maintain normal brain and nerve function during the normal aging process. Acetyl-L-carnitine is a naturally occurring metabolite of L-carnitine, and both are present in the diet, particularly in foods of animal origin.

In most tissues of the body, both L-carnitine and acetyl-L carnitine are involved in fatty acid oxidation. They are part of what is called the carnitine shuttle. L-carnitine shuttles fatty acids from the cytosol (the cell fluid) into the mitochondria (the cell’s powerhouses) for oxidation and energy production. The main end products of fatty acid oxidation are energy (in the form of NADH), and acetyl groups. Most of these acetyl groups are further oxidized in the mitochondria’s Krebs cycle, but some are needed in the cytosol for producing other important metabolites. Acetyl-L-carnitine provides a way to carry these acetyl groups through the mitochondrial membranes back out into the cytosol.

Acetyl-Lcarnitine may also provide scavenging of harmful superoxide radicals.

I have a herritary ailment where my body stores ferritin (iron) and if not treated it will eventually shut down all your organs. This is one of the products my Dr. recommends to take to help lower that level. So far the levels are dropping.
