Optimized Carnitine With GlycoCarn
Diminished cellular energy production is an inevitable consequence of aging. As adults mature, the cellular power plants known as the mitochondria become dysfunctional. The resulting slowdown in energy production manifests in numerous health problems.

Nutritional researchers have discovered that the amino acid carnitine promotes the burning of fat for fuel in the mitochondria, thus promoting youthful levels of cellular energy production. Researchers have now identified several optimized, next-generation forms of carnitine that not only help boost cellular energy production, but also may confer targeted benefits for the brain, heart, muscles, and central nervous system.

Optimized Carnitine with GlycoCarn™ combines these advanced forms of carnitine -- acetyl-L-carnitine, propionyl-L-carnitine, and acetyl-L-carnitine arginate -- in a single formula that provides balanced, broad-spectrum support for cellular energy production throughout the body.

Acetyl-L-carnitine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to combat oxidative stress and promote energy production in critical brain and central nervous system tissues. Acetyl-L-carnitine also supports healthy brain function by stimulating the release of acetylcholine and dopamine, two neurotransmitters that play vital roles in brain health and communication.

Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate has an added molecule of arginine that enables it to augment the effects of acetyl-L-carnitine, promoting the growth of neurites that facilitate communication among nerve cells in the brain.

GlycoCarn™ is a patented form of proprionyl-L-carnitine that quickly penetrates into heart, endothelial and muscle cells, with effects that range from protecting the heart muscle to combating muscle fatigue by increasing muscle energy stores of glycogen.
