Acetyl-L-carnitine is a derivative of L-carnitine that provides all the benefits and functions of L-carnitine such as aiding in fatty acid metabolism and energy production. Deficiencies in L-carnitine are manifested as low energy levels and muscular weakness. The acetyl group that is part of acetyl-L-carnitine contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is required for mental functioning. Recent animal studies show that only the acetyl form of L-carnitine acts to reduce oxidative damage in the brain.
