Acetyl L-Carnitine is a molecule that occurs naturally in the brain, liver, and kidney. It is similar to the amino acid L-Carnitine and is involved in brain energy metabolism. It promotes memory and supports cognition while protecting the brain from oxidative stress. This formulation provides Free Form Acetyl L-Carnitine to promote optimal absorption and assimilation.*

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Our daily protein requirement is really a need for amino acids. Dietary amino acids are classified as "essential" or "non-essential." Essential amino acids (histidine, isoleucine, leucine, Iysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine) cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet or ill-health results. The non-essential amino acids are also essential for health but can be synthesized in the body from the essential amino acids. Both the essential and non-essential amino acids are reassembled as hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters (chemical messengers), antibodies and nutrient carriers.
The term "non-essential" may be misleading. Although histidine was once considered an essential amino acid for infants only, subsequent research has determined that histidine may also be essential for adults. Arginine, ornithine, cysteine, cystine, taurine and tyrosine are classified as non-essential amino acids but may be essential for individuals with certain diseases or nutritional concerns. A suboptimal intake of the essential amino acids increases the body's need for the non-essential amino acids.
L-Arginine: It is essential in muscle metabolism because it provides a vehicle for transport, storage and excretion of nitrogen. L-arginine is an important component in tissue generation and regeneration. It is highly concentrated in the skin and connective tissue and helps to remove ammonia from the body as part of the urea cycle.
BCAA: (Branched Chain Amino Acids: L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine) Muscle tissue is largely composed of BCAA's which are used for energy production and protein synthesis. BCAA's are also involved in the metabolism of neurotransmitters, natural chemicals in the brain which influence mood and mental functions.
L-Carnitine: Carnitine is actually a dipeptide - an amino acid made up of two other essential aminos, methionine and lysine. L-carnitine is important for fat metabolism, especially in heart and muscle cells. It is also necessary for the transport of long chain fatty acids into cell mitochondria where the acids are oxidized and burned for energy.
L-Cysteine: It is a sulfur-bearing amino acid with antioxidant properties. Important for keratin synthesis, a protein found in the skin, hair and nails. It also plays a role in energy metabolism and fatty acid synthesis.
L-Cystine: It is a disulfide, containing two cysteine molecules. It is important in the repair of hair and nail tissues. It often helps proteins hold their shape as they are carried around the body. Thus, cystine helps determine the form and mechanical properties of many animal and plant proteins.
L-Glutamic Acid: It is the most prominent amino acid in wheat. L-glutamic acid is involved in the metabolism of sugars and fats, as well as being important for brain function, synthesis of DNA, glutathione and other amino acids. It also helps in removing excess ammonia from the body.
L-Glutamine: A major fuel source for the brain and the entire body, it is found in the cerebral cortex and in various regions of the brain. The concentration of glutamine in the blood is three to four times greater than all other amino acids. It is changed by the body into glutamic acid. L-glutamine has also been shown to be essential for healthy immune function.
L-Glutathione: A natural sulfur-bearing peptide formed from the linking of three amino acids: glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine. It acts as an antioxidant and detoxicant and is also involved in amino acid transport across cell membranes.
Glycine: It is a natural antacid and sweetener that is involved in the synthesis of DNA, phospholipids and collagen. Glycine also helps spare glucose for energy by improving glycogen storage.
L-Histidine: Children and adults can synthesize some histidine in their bodies, but most of the histidine processed in the body is from the diet. It is formed from histidine and is released by cells usually as an immune response. Lastly, L-histidine is significant for growth and repair of tissue.
L-Lysine: It is important for growth, tissue repair, and the production of hormones, enzymes and antibodies. Current research efforts are being directed at a possible beneficial role of L-lysine in effecting the herpes virus. L-lysine is found in large quantities in muscle tissues.
L-Methionine: It is a sulfur-containing amino acid with antioxidant properties. L-methionine is important for healthy nails and skin and for the synthesis of taurine, L-cysteine, phosphatidylcholine (lecithin), bile, L-carnitine and endorphins.
L-Ornithine: Combined with L-arginine, they both influence growth hormones and are necessary for proper immune and liver function.
L-Phenylalanine: It is a precursor to tyrosine which is used to manufacture certain hormones (epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopa, dopamine) and is better absorbed than tyrosine. L-phenylalanine is important for the production of chemical messengers in the brain called neurotransmitters.
DLPA (D,L-Phenylalanine): DLPA is a mixture of the natural form of phenylalanine (the L form) with its mirror image (the D form). DL-phenylalanine may have the unique ability to block certain enzymes (enkephalinase) in the central nervous system that are normally responsible for break-ing down natural morphine-like hormones called endorphins and enkephalins.
Taurine: It is a simple sulphur-containing compound and is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body. It plays a variety of roles in the normal functioning of the brain, heart, gallbladder, eyes and vascular system. Basically, its function is to facilitate the passage of sodium, potassium and magnesium ions into and out of cells and to electrically stabilize the cell membranes. Taurine is an essential amino acid in pre-term and newborn infants because they cannot synthesize it.
L-Threonine: It is important for growth and maintenance of the thyroid gland and immune function. Combined with L-aspartic acid and L-methionine, it aids in liver function.
Tyrosine: It is a constituent of protein amino sugars and amino lipids which have important roles throughout the body. It is important to brain nutrition because it is a precursor of the neurotransmitters - dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. It is also an important part of peptides such as, enkephalins, which serve as pain relievers in the brain. It is the precursor for hormones such as, thyroid and catecholestrogens (chemicals that are both estrogens and catecholamines) and for the major human pigment, melanin.
