|Acetyl L Carnitine:Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is a form of L-carnitine, a Bioenergetic Nutrient that is found in nearly all cells of the body. ALCAR protects, maintains and energizes the neurons that are critical to concentration, memory, mental energy and overall health.*This form of carnitine is the most bioavailable and energetically useful form for your brain.* It supports your brain’s optimal synthesis of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter that is critical for concentration and memory.*1,2
