Acetyl L-carnitine is a molecule that occurs naturally in the brain, liver, and kidneys. Like the amino acid L-carnitine, it burns fat to produce energy and aids in the removal of wastes. However, acetyl L-carnitine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and has neuroprotective activity. Acetyl L-carnitine is involved in the brain energy metabolism. It pro-motes memory and supports cognition while protecting the brain from oxidative stress. Structurally similar to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, acetyl L-carnitine serves as the precursor to acetyl coenzyme A and donates acetyl groups that contribute to the synthesis of acetylcholine, which is required for mental function. Research supports the positive role that acetyl L-carnitine plays in promoting brain health.
