Carnitine is derived from an amino acid. It is found in nearly all organisms and animal tissue. L-Carnitine is present in meat, poultry, fish and milk.
The body synthesises carnitine for energy by acting as a transporter of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria. Acetyl-L-Carnitine supports brain function and works as an antioxidant protecting against age related degeneration.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is in crystal form, highly soluble and suitable for use in dietary supplement tablets, capsules or powders.
