There are references to Alcar being effective for detoxification, possessing neuroprotective properties and stating that, "Acetyl-L-carnitine improves cognition in the brain, significantly reversed age-associated decline in mitochondrial membrane potential and improved ambulatory activity." ²
Another two studies found that ALC supplement or the Acetyl-L-Carnitine to be an effective cognitive and memory enhancer.³,⁴ There are also findings that Alcar is capable of offering neurotherapeutic benefits to its users as well as reducing the symptoms of male aging, namely improving mood and reducing fatigue.⁵,⁶ Many similar studies concluded with the same results.

Very good product
Really good product especially if you do hard physical exercise. Take a couple with a glass of water 30 mins before and I feel sharper and more energetic. I almost feel like I'm getting hungry as well, like it is metabolising the fat into energy. I swear by this product it is very cheap and really good as part of a daily stack
