Product Information Menu
A major cause of aging is a reduction in the energy-producing components of the cell, resulting in reduced cellular metabolic activity, and the accumulation of cellular debris.1-7 L-carnitine helps maintain cellular energy metabolism by assisting in the transport of fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria within the cell, where fats are oxidized to produce the cellular energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP).8-13
The acetylated form of L-carnitine (Acetyl-L-carnitine) facilitates the release and synthesis of acetylcholine by donating its acetyl group to the production of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter.16,17 Acetyl-L-carnitine also enhances the release of dopamine from neurons and helps it bind to dopamine receptors.14,15,18,19
ArginoCarn® is a patented form of acetyl-L-carnitine dihydrochloride that is molecularly bonded to the amino acid arginine and known as the AminoCarnitine® generation. Cell studies suggest that it can stimulate the outgrowth of neurites.20-22
Acetyl-L-carnitine is as effective as L-carnitine in carrying fatty acids across the membrane into the cell where they are burned as energy, but also promotes optimal brain health. With the discovery of acetyl-L-carnitine arginate, the benefits of acetyl-L-carnitine can now be greatly augmented.

Comments about Life Extension Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate, 100 vegetarian capsules:
I have been taking Carnitine in various forms since 1972 as a mental booster and work-out aid. My job as an educator, emergency medicine responder, and fitness enthusiast requires that I be able to do what needs doing at all hours of the day and night. L. Carnitine has been a supplement of choice to maintain the edge I need. I feel that it works and would not be without it. There have been times when I was not able to obtain L. Carnitine and the difference without it was noticable. My preference dosing-wise is to take 500-100 mg on an empty stomach on arising and 1000 mg pre and post workout in the afternoon. This is not the only supplement I use, but I consider it to be one of the essential ones.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Work out every day
This supplement turns back the clock at least ten years. I am more alert, and have fewer problems with fluent speech. I'm on the way to age 74, and find that is infinitely better for me than Ginko Biloba, which I used to take before.
