Thorne Research Carnityl® supports healthy brain function and memory and sperm count and sperm motility.
Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is synthesized from L-carnitine in the brain, liver, and kidney.
ALC supports fat metabolism and energy production in the mitochondria. In addition, ALC supports brain function by enhancing production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
Taken supplementally, ALC is better absorbed and crosses the blood-brain barrier better than L-carnitine. Several studies have demonstrated ALC's effectiveness in supporting cognitive health in the elderly, especially if supplementation is begun when mental health is thought to be at risk of declining. Other studies have shown ALC may be of benefit for maintaining a positive mood in the elderly, possibly by partially inhibiting the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and lowering chronically elevated cortisol levels (which become elevated during stressful situations).
Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule two to three times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
