The acetylated form of L-carnitine (acetyl-L-carnitine) facilitates the synthesis and release of acetylcholine by donating its acetyl group to be used in the production of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter.

Acetyl-L-carnitine also enhances the release of dopamine from neurons and helps it bind to dopamine receptors. Numerous human and animal studies validate the multiple beneficial mechanisms that acetyl-L-carnitine exerts in the brain.

The amino acid acetyl-L-carnitine boosts mitochondrial energy production through its ability to facilitate fatty acid transport and oxidation in the cell.

Since 1995, Life Extension members have been supplementing with acetyl-L-carnitine and deriving the many benefits this form of carnitine has shown in published studies. With the discovery of acetyl-L-carnitine arginate, the benefits of acetyl-L-carnitine can now be greatly augmented.

Acetl-L-carnitine arginate is a patented form of carnitine that stimulates the growth of neuritis in the brain. Studies show that acetyl-L-carnitine arginate stimulates the growth of new neurites by 19.5 percent, as much as nerve growth factor itself. Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate acts together with acetyl-L-carnitine to increase neurite growth.
