Elevate Your Vitality! Core Nutritionals Acetyl L-Carnitine is an exciting workout supplement promoting fatty acid and carbohydrate metabolism, mood, memory, and protein synthesis. ALCAR enhances neurotransmission, exercise performance, and energy production with high oral bioavailability in convenient 500mg capsules.

Acetyl-L-carnitine has been shown to:

  • Promote fatty acid and carbohydrate metabolism
  • Be involved in brain processes such as mood and memory
  • Play a key role in protein synthesis

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is a little bit like your 401K: you need it, you know you should pay attention to it, but it’s not exactly the sexiest topic. We know; we feel you! But we also know that ALCAR is one of the most fascinating, useful, and physiologically exciting workout supplements on the planet. You’re hard-pressed to find a single other ingredient that is involved in so many critical bodily processes: fatty acid and carbohydrate metabolism, neurotransmission, exercise performance and capacity, brain function – the list goes on! So, like your 401K contribution, don’t forget to pay into your ALCAR fund.


L-carnitine is a derivative of the amino acid lysine and, as certain conditions outpace the body’s ability to produce it, l-carnitine is considered a conditionally essential amino acid. While endogenous biosynthesis of l-carnitine from the amino acids lysine and methionine is sufficient for essential processes – along with dietary sources of carnitine from protein-rich red meat, for example – dietary supplementation of carnitine may pose benefits in certain physiological conditions.

Unfortunately, due to excess metabolism of l-carnitine by microorganisms in the small intestine, exogenous supplementation with oral l-carnitine has proved ineffective. ALCAR, an acetylated version of l-carnitine, has considerably higher oral bioavailability, due likely to only partial hydrolytic metabolism. Once in the bloodstream, ALCAR plays a fundamental role in the production of energy, acting as the catalyst for the beta-oxidation of long chain fatty acids by the mitochondria; regulating the CoA to Acyl-CoA ratio (necessary for the production of ATP); and the metabolism of carbohydrates. ALCAR also is an excitatory agent for neurons, increases neuronal transmission, and increases the production of neurotransmitters and neurohormones such as dopamine and serotonin.

ALCAR has higher oral bioavailability compared to L-carnitine, resulting in more efficient absorption and utilization in the body.
What role does ALCAR play in energy production?
ALCAR acts as a catalyst for the beta-oxidation of long-chain fatty acids by mitochondria, essential for ATP production.
How does ALCAR affect brain function?
ALCAR increases neuronal transmission and stimulates the production of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, supporting brain health.
Is ALCAR suitable for enhancing workout performance?
Yes, ALCAR improves exercise performance and capacity by boosting energy production and metabolism.
What's the recommended serving size for ALCAR?
The recommended serving size is one 500mg capsule.
How many servings are there per container?
Each container offers 100 servings.
Can ALCAR help improve mood?
Yes, ALCAR has been shown to be involved in brain processes that enhance mood.
