Acetyl L-Carnitine, also known as ALCAR, is the amino acid L-Carnitine bonded with an Acetyl group. Simply put, the acetyl group allows this amino acid to pass the blood-brain barrier more efficiently. L-Carnitineâ€™s main benefit is to use stored fat for energy. Acetyl L-Carnitine is able to assist with energy metabolism as well, but its most popular use is as a cognitive enhancer.
