L-carnitine aids in the breakdown of long-chain fatty acids and production of cellular energy, but some adults, especially those with a vegetarian diet, have difficulty maintaining a healthy intake.
ALCAR from AOR has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, which may supply the body with a more bio available form of L-carnitine. Studies conducted have shown positive results in the improvement of mental function and energy levels in elderly who have taken ALCAR or those taking the supplement while battling conditions such as liver and kidney disease or chronic fatigue. ALCAR may also help with cognitive function in young and middle-aged adults.
