Acetyl L-carnitine (ALC) is the acetyl ester of the amino acid L-carnitine and is similar in form to the amino acid L-carnitine. This particular product is made by Vitacost and contains Acetyl L-Carnitine 500mg per capsule, with 120 capsules per pot.

It is believed to be absorbed into the bloodstream more efficiently than simple L-carnitine, passing more easily through cell membranes and thereby utilised more efficiently in the mitochondria of the cell.

ALC is believed to assist in the transport of fat through the cell membrane and into the mitochondria of the cell, where fats are then oxidised to produce the cellular energy ATP.
