Acetyl Vs L form
Acetyl forms of amino acids are directly taken into the brain, and Carnitine is no exception. This is where the majority of actions take place, with the Acetyl form used to treat memory related illness and neuropathies.
The body can convert Acetyl L Carnitine into L Carnitine and visa versa, however, if you are wanting weight loss, best use L-Carnitine alone and if you are treating any brain related disorders, use the Acetyl form.
Acetyl L Carnitine is used for age related memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, late life depression, cataracts, pain due to diabetes type 2 and pain associated with drugs that are used to treat HIV AIDS.
In Alzheimers disease, this amino acid seems to work best with reducing rapid onset Alzheimers disease presenting in those under 65 years of age. Also great for muscle function, Acetyl L Carnitine is vital for health of the heart muscle and also reduces prostate inflammation. Useful also for increasing aged related testosterone decline.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine by Seeking Health provides a more concentrated dose of L-carnitine than are readily available from dietary sources, in a bioavailable acetyl form that may be better utilized by brain and nervous tissues. Unlike L-carnitine, acetyl-L-carnitine can pass the blood brain barrier. L-carnitine is an amino acid naturally produced by the human body, and plays a role in healthy energy production, brain and nervous system function, and healthy fat metabolism. Under conditions of stress, aging and illness, the body’s ability to make L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine may be reduced, making dietary sources more important. Tissue concentrations of L-carnitine decease with age, making L-carnitine consumption more important for older adults. Acetyl-L-carnitine may support healthy aging and cellular health.*
L-carnitine is essential for the processes that allow for fatty acids to serve as one of the primary energy sources for the body. Skeletal and heart muscles obtain most of their energy from fat breakdown. For these tissues to produce energy from fat, fatty acids must be transported to specific locations (mitochondria) within cells. L-carnitine is involved in multiple steps in the transfer of individual fatty acids for energy production into the cells, allowing for a healthy breakdown of fat.*
