What is ALCAR?

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR aka ALC) is an acetylated form of L-Carnitine, which has greater benefits than L-Carnitine. ALCAR is naturally present in the body through the biosynthesis of lysine and methionine. However, it can also be consumed through foods and supplements. ALCAR is associated with a numerous biological and cognitive processes. For example, ALCAR has been shown to affect mitochondrial function thereby improving energy levels. Due to its ability to affect energy metabolism, specifically fatty acids transport from cytosol to mitochondria, ALCAR is often found in weight loss supplements.1

In addition, ALCAR is involved in brain and muscle metabolism. By altering cerebral metabolism and maintaining energy levels in the brain, ALCAR can enhance alertness and prevent brain deterioration during stressful periods. ALCAR may also be able to reduce neuroinflammation thereby reducing the risk of neurodegenerative diseases.1 Therefore, ALCAR shows promise in the treatment of the neurological decline associated with aging.1

Key benefits:

  • Brain energy
  • Faster cognition
  • Better focus
  • Increased alertness
  • Neuroprotective effects
  • Antioxidant effects

Mechanisms of action:

ALCAR induces the observed biological and cognitive effects through its two main molecules – carnitine and acetyl. The first one is important in the β-oxidation of fatty acids, and the second one is used to maintain acetyl-CoA levels.

Recommended dosage:

The recommended daily dosage of ALCAR is between 500-1000 mg, taken in two equal dosages a day. Generally, ALCAR levels reach a peak 30-60 minutes post-ingestion.

Side effects:

ALCAR is a well-tolerated dietary supplement. It is considered to be very safe. However, some mild effects, such as headaches, nausea and stomach discomfort may occur in some users.

Extra physical energy
I prefer ALCAR capsules to powder as the taste of it isn’t the nicest, so capsules are great alternative. Works well as a supplement, gives me more physical energy, I find it to be very effective if taken before a workout.
