Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is related to L-carnitine but has some unique qualities (especially with regard to the central nervous system). A major difference between acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) and L-carnitine is that acetyl-L-carnitine easily passes the blood-brain barrier and plays a more important role in the metabolism of the brain. The body’s own synthesis of ALC decreases as we grow older. Supplementing with ALC helps to protect the brain from age-related decline.

Most important characteristics of Acetyl-L-Carnitine:

  • High-dose capsules (500 mg), therefore relatively inexpensive
  • Contains only the natural L-form of the amino acid
  • Fully vegetarian capsules


Take 2 capsules daily, at least half an hour before a meal. The capsules are preferably not taken together with foods containing protein.

For a good mental balance: 500 mg to 2 g per day.

To support the nervous system: 1.5 to 3 g per day.

The effect on mental energy is often quick, starting after about twenty minutes. The other effects are mostly noticeable after a month.

The capsule may be opened if experiencing difficulties with swallowing.


Interactions with regular medication and other natural health products may occur. Please consult an expert about this.



There are several nutrients that have a synergistic effect on Acetyl-L-Carnitine 500 mg. Recently there has been much interest in the combination of acetyl-L-carnitine and alpha lipoic acid. Vitamin B lecithin (contains phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine) and omega-3 fatty acids are also very good synergists. Besides taking this product it is also recommended to follow a healthy diet, as well as taking a basic supplementation of Multi Vital Forte, Vitamin C-1000 Ascorbate Complex and Omega-3 liquid (or Omega-3 capsules).
