Acetyl L-Carnitine from Dymatize Nutrition works to lowers cholesterol levels and Increase your fat metabolism!
This ALCAR dietary supplement is an antioxidant that may help increase fat metabolism from Dymatize Nutrition, containing 500mg of Acetyl L-Carnitine.
L-carnitine is derived from the lysine and methionine amino acids. It is mainly synthesized in the liver and the kidneys, and must be transported for use to other tissues in the body. It is found in highest concentration in tissues that use fatty acids as the main dietary fuel, such as the skeletal and cardiac muscles.
One of the key uses of Acetyl L-Carnitine supplement is for fatty acid oxidation - helping users burn unwanted body fat. Fatty acids are one the key energy sources the body uses, and oxidation is the process by which they're broken down to create energy. The fatty acids cannot penetrate the inner mitochondia membrane (where they are burned for energy), and the key role for L-Carnitine is to transport fatty acids accross the mitochondra membrane to allow for oxidation of the fats.
Recommended Use: As an adult dietary supplement, take 1-2 capsules daily preferably with a meal.
