Optimized Carnitine with GlycoCarn®
60 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number: 00916

Lower cellular energy production is an inevitable part of aging. Carnitine, an amino acid derivative, is found in nearly all cells of the body, promoting the burning of fatty acids for fuel in the mitochondria. Cellular energy production declines as we age. So Life Extension has developed state-of-the-art products that provide optimized, third generation forms of carnitine that help transport fatty acids right to the heart of your energy-producing mitochondria and produce cellular energy faster. And that boost in cellular function can help provide a quicker recovery after exercise and less muscle fatigue during exercise.106,107 It may also benefit your brain, heart and central nervous system right along with your muscles.107-112

Optimized Carnitine with GlycoCarn® combines these three advanced forms of carnitine in one single formula to help you optimize your energy output:

• Acetyl-L-Carnitine crosses the blood-brain barrier to combat oxidative stress and promote energy production in brain and central nervous system tissues.109-112 It also supports the release and synthesis of acetylcholine, and enhances the release of dopamine from neurons and helps it bind to dopamine receptors.113-115

• ArginoCarn® is a patented form of acetyl-L-carnitine arginate dihydrochloride that is molecularly bonded to the amino acid arginine and known as the AminoCarnitine® generation. Cell studies suggest that it can promote the growth of neurites that facilitate communication among nerve cells in the brain.49

• Glycine Propionyl-L-Carnitine Hydrochloride (GlycoCarn®) is a patented form of AminoCarnitine® that is molecularly bonded to the amino acid glycine, one of the precursor amino acids to carnitine biosynthesis. This form offers such wide benefits as enhanced fatty acid metabolism, antioxidant activity and increased nitric oxide production.116 Recent research also shows support for those that participate in sports activities.117-123

              Comments about Life Extension Optimized Carnitine with Glycocarn®, 60 vegetarian capsules:

              This is one of my favorite products from Life Extensions! I like taking it with L Tyrosine or just w/ B100 and 1000 mg Vitammin C. Clears out any fogginess and helps me concentrate on everyday tasks. Although I feel alert, I get no side effects like shaky hands, nor do I have trouble sleeping. I live 64 miles from the nearest big city so I make sure I take it before leaving and if necessary I'll have a return home supply. We're talking 2 lane roads with plenty of wildlife (Animal and human) and Optimized Carnithine keeps my head clear for whatever's around the next curve.
              The price is better than anywhere else I've seen it and I know I'm getting a pure contaminate free product. Thank you LE!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Again, I've never had an issue getting my products from Life Extension. The packaging is strong and professionally set in place. Never had a cracked tablet or spilled capsule!

                        Excellent supplement that provides physical energy, mental alertness and overall good health. I use it in the morning before exercise and work, and it prepares me well for both. I've used it for years and I am completely satisfied. Life Extension's customer service is top notch.
