ALCAR is a modified (acetylated) form of L-carnitine that has been researched rather extensively in the last decade. This amino acid-like molecule that helps your body transport fatty acids into mitochondria so they can be burned for energy. Essentially, ALCAR acts like the vehicle to help your cells burn fat.
In addition, ALCAR is able to cross through the blood-brain barrier efficiently, thereby helping protect the brain from oxidative stress and boosting cognitive function. This makes ALCAR the ideal supplement to use before you hit the gym or any other time of day you want to be more focused and productive.
