How Does Acetyl-L-Carnitine Work in the Brain?
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is made from L-Carnitine in the body. It is broken down in the blood by plasma esterases to carnitine which is used by the body to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria for breakdown.
ALCAR is important for many body processes. L-Carnitine is made in the human brain, liver, and kidneys. The body converts L-Carnitine to Acetyl-L-Carnitine and vice versa.
How it works
The main role of Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a metabolic one. It increases acetylcholine, one of the neurotransmitters tied to memory and brain functioning. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a precursor to acetylcholine in the presence of Coenzyme-A. During fatty acid metabolism, ALCAR donates a “methyl group” to make acetylcholine and helps transport fatty acids into the mitochondrial matrix.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine has neuromodulatory, neurotrophic, and neuroprotective effects that are most likely involved in its positive effects neurological diseases.
ALCAR works as a shuttle transport for fatty acids through cell membranes into mitochondria to assist with adenosine triphosphate (ATP) synthesis. As ALCAR shuttles fatty acids out of mitochondria, it flushes out toxic byproducts.
ALCAR maintains mitochondrial health in nearly every tissue of your body. A healthy brain consumes at least 20% of your body’s energy and produces a lot of harmful byproducts, which explains why ALCAR is so important for a healthy brain.
