Essential Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid that can increase cellular energy production, boost physical and mental energy, enhance mood, increase fat metabolism, limit fat gains and enable a cleaner and leaner bulk.
Reportedly most effective in its acetylated form, carnitine is proven to transport lipids and fatty acids into your cell’s mitochondria – your cellular organelles where the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur. By getting the fat here, acetyl l-carnitine actively encourages excess body fat to breakdown inside your cells, making it the perfect supplement for working towards a healthy and lean figure.
Acetyl l-carnitine promotes aerobic endurance by encouraging fatty acids and other fats to enter the mitochondria and increases the amount of fat that’s available to be produced into energy. Plus, you’ll be burning body fat instead of carbs and increasing your fat-burning by up to 55% during low-intensity cardio.
During higher intensity training, acetyl l-carnitine has been proven to lower lactic acid levels and boost natural creatine production, powering performance for longer, increasing muscle size and strength gains and aiding post-workout recovery. And carnitine increases the amount of testosterone receptors inside muscle cells, stimulating muscle growth and enabling greater strength gains.
