Burning fatty acids for brain health and performance
brain function support
helps turn fat into energy
Our cells have small organelles which act like energy factories – the mitochondria. They take in sugars and fatty acids and burn them to create ATP, a form of energy that our cells can use to carry out all the processes they need to. One of the key players in this process is l-carnitine.
L-carnitine is created from amino acids and acts like a shuttle to bring fatty acids into the mitochondria so that they can be used to create energy. Our body can make l-carnitine out of two amino acids, lysine, and methionine, and some vitamin C. We can also get it from meat or fish.
The benefits of l-carnitine
L-carnitine can provide a variety of benefits to the body, however, the two biggest ones are supporting the brain and helping with weight loss.
Acetyl L-Carnitine, a form of l-carnitine, can benefit brain health, helping to keep your brain functioning at its best. It can improve memory, learning, and thinking skills, and keep them sharp as you age.
L-carnitine helps burn fat, so it’s a great addition to a weight loss routine incorporating exercise and a healthy diet. It has been shown to increase weight loss and decrease fat mass.
This supplement can also support you in the gym – it may boost your stamina; help provide more oxygen to your muscles and assist in recovery. It may even decrease muscle soreness.
Therefore, Maxler Acetyl L-Carnitine caps are a great solution for those needing a little extra help with weight loss or those wanting to keep their brains sharp. These vegan caps provide the benefits of l-carnitine regardless of your dietary preference.
Serving size: 1 Capsule
Servings Per Container: 100
Directions: take 1 serving (1 capsule) 1 to 3 times daily.
It’s recommended to take the supplement with a meal as the nutrients are more easily absorbed that way.
Modified means to better
We’ve used advanced technology to make sure you get the most out of the supplement. When you eat, say, fish, only part of the L-carnitine it contains is absorbed. The rest, unfortunately, leaves the body. A modified form of L-carnitine is made bioavailable to ensure maximum absorption.
L-carnitine and acetyl l-carnitine are the same thing in two different forms. Acetyl l-carnitine is the same as l-carnitine but is more easily absorbed from the gut. It also crosses the blood-brain barrier easier, so that your brain can benefit from it as well. That’s why acetyl l-carnitine is considered the best form of carnitine for supporting brain health.
Yes! L-carnitine is mainly found in muscle. Combining Maxler Acetyl L-Carnitine with carbohydrates increases carnitine levels in muscle. When you exercise at a low or moderate intensity, your body relies on glycogen reserves for energy, so l-carnitine can promote reliance on fatty acids, therefore protecting your glycogen levels.
It also prevents your body from using amino acids for energy, making them available to make more muscle. Overall, l-carnitine can help increase muscle mass, improve your stamina, and assist in recovery.
Maxler Acetyl L-Carnitine is vegan caps, which are not only dairy-free but also gluten-free, meaning that they can fit almost every type of dietary requirement. You’ll also be pleased to know that these capsules consist of only four ingredients and provide 500 mg of l-carnitine without any extra additions you don’t need.
You can take Acetyl L-Carnitine if you’re trying to lose some weight or if you’re looking to keep your brain active and healthy.
Acetyl L-Carnitine is especially important for those that don’t eat meat, as you may not be able to get enough of it through your diet. Older adults may also be at benefit, as the amount of l-carnitine your body makes can decline with age.
Crossing the border
The blood-brain barrier is a partition that protects the brain from dangerous compounds that can enter the bloodstream. But, at the same time, it also prevents useful substances from reaching the brain. It requires the use of special, often modified substances to overcome this barrier. Acetyl L-carnitine is just such a substance.
