Douglas Labs Acetyl-L-carnitine

Acetyl-L-carnitine capsules, provided by DouglasLaboratories, each contain 500 mg of pure acetyl-Lcarnitine.


Acetyl-L-carnitine plays a key role in maintainingnormal brain and nerve function during aging, as manywell-designed human and animal studies have shownconsistently. Acetyl-L-carnitine is a naturallyoccurring metabolite of L-carnitine, and both arepresent in the diet, particularly in foods of animalorigin.

In most tissues of the body, both L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine are involved in fatty acid oxidation. Theyare part of the so-called carnitine shuttle. L-carnitineshuttles fatty acids from the cytosol (the cell fluid) intothe mitochondria (the cells powerhouses) for oxidationand energy production. The main end products of fattyacid oxidation are energy (in the form of NADH), andacetyl groups. Most of these acetyl groups are furtheroxidized in the mitochondrias Krebs cycle, but someare needed in the cytosol for producing other importantmetabolites. Acetyl-L-carnitine provides a way to carrythese acetyl groups through the mitochondrialmembranes back out into the cytosol.

In brain and other nerve tissues, this acetyl group export by acetyl-L-carnitine out of the mitochondria into the cytosol is important in maintaining normal levels of acetyl groups for the production of acetylcholine and other acetylated neurotransmitters, that are so crucial for normal brain and nerve function. The enzyme that makes acetylcholine from acetyl groups and choline is the choline acetyl transferase. The activity of this important enzyme has a tendency to decline with age, causing low acetylcholine levels which in turn are thought to contribute to the impairment of brain function that is associated with aging.

Acetyl-L-carnitine capsules may be a useful nutritionaladjunct for individuals who wish to support the bodysnervous system and brain function.
