Also known as

Acetylcarnitine, ALCAR
                       

Introduction
ALCAR is metabolized into and is itself an acetylated form of L-carnitine, which is an essential amino acid present in all living organisms. ALCAR and carnitine are responsible for transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria for breakdown, and plays an important role in the production of ATP, the chief unit of currency for cells. ALCAR is an important antioxidant used in the cellular respiration process. It protects the outer walls of mitochondria, reduces the effects of aging, and has powerful neuroprotective properties.

ALCAR is valued for its ability to increase circulating levels of antioxidants, especially those that are vital for reducing side effects that occur from heightened dopamine turnover, making the supplement ideal for those who take opiates or amphetamine type stimulants.

Summary
ALCAR is a highly beneficial supplement, showing promise at supporting healthy energy metabolism and turnover, protecting the body and brain from stress that can accumulate from stress, toxins, or substance use. ALCAR has neuroprotective properties, can increase dopamine & serotonin turnover and release, and reduces negative reactions linked to stress, with repeated ALCAR treatments preventing stress induced decrease in nerve growth factor binding, or counteracting the increase in β-endorphin also induced by repeated exposure to stress.

Precautions
Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
