Help Your Body and Mind Restore Itself to a More Youthful State With Life Extension Acetyl L-Canitine
A major reason for the aging process is reduced energy-producing components of your cells. This results in reduced cellular metabolic activity, and the accumulation of cellular debris. L-carnitine helps your body maintain its cellular energy metabolism by aiding in the transportation of fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria within the cell. This is where fats are oxidized to produce the cellular energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP).
Acetyl-L-carnitine is the acetylated ester form of the amino acid L-carnitine. Acetyl-L-carnitine is an endogenous mitochondrial membrane compound that helps maintain mitochondrial bioenergetics and helps to inhibit the increased oxidative stress associated with the aging process. Acetyl-L-carnitine and L-carnitine are absorbed into the bloodstream with equal efficiency. Both are also effective at carrying long-chain fatty acids across the membrane into the mitochondria where they are burned for energy production and utilized efficiently by the cells. Acetyl-L-carnitine also guards against oxidative damage. Amyloid-beta peptide is a principal component of plaques and is thought to be a contributor to the aging process. Acetyl-L-carnitine exerts protective effects against such neurotoxicity and oxidative stress.
Life Extension Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and is known to have the potential to exert unique neuroprotective, neuromodulatory and neurotrophic properties. Acetyl L-carnitine can also help to support memory function and retention, improve mitochondrial structure and function, prevent age-related oxidative damage, and restore the activity of key enzymes in your body.
