EHPlabs Acetyl-L-carnitine is a 100% pure, the highest quality pharmaceutical grade formula on the market.

Acetyl-L-carnitine, also known as ALC, is a naturally occurring amino acid that is stored in the muscles, with trace amounts in the liver and blood. It promotes the transportation of free fatty acids into the mitochondria (the core of the cells), where this fat is burned off as energy. ALC also assists in muscle recovery after strenuous exercise and promotes optimal heart and brain function.


L-carnitine stimulates the body into burning fatty acids (triglycerides) and has been suggested to increase the body’s ability to burn fat by helping move more fatty acids into the cells to be burned for energy. L-Carnitine supplementation has shown to provide a modest body weight, BMI, and fat mass reduction, particularly in overweight and obese individuals. This can be supported by a previous study that found that those supplemented with L-carnitine lost an average of 2.9 pounds (1.3 kg) more than those who didn’t.


Current literature suggests that Acetyl L-Carnitine supplementation may improve markers of learning and prevent age-related mental decline ³. It has been demonstrated to improve brain function and short-term memory in healthy older adults. It may also have a beneficial effect on Alzheimer-type dementia.


Acetyl L-Carnitine is involved in lipid oxidation and glucose metabolism by stimulating the activity of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex and activating the glycolytic pathway responsible for glucose breakdown (glycolysis). It assists in the breakdown of long-chain fatty acids and improves Beta oxidation, a metabolic process by which fatty acid molecules are broken down to produce energy. This helps increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP), responsible for cellular functions within the body. Evidence suggests that Acetyl L-Carnitine supplementation may positively affect the lipid profile by counteracting the shift in the use of carbohydrates to lipids commonly observed with insulin resistance. This is of particular benefit for those suffering from Type 2 Diabetes. Supplementation has also reduced blood pressure and decreased the risk of inflammatory processes associated with heart disease.


L-Carnitine may improve exercise performance and recovery due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce exercise-induced muscle damage. It has been demonstrated to increase oxygen supply and blood flow to the muscles, helping reduce fatigue, muscle soreness, and delaying discomfort
