True Performance Nutrition offers Acetyl L Carnitine with an added dose of alpha lipoic acid, which increases insulin sensitivity. Supplemental carnitine allows for greater weight loss by burning body fat as fuel and increasing energy production while performing cardio, such as low intensity steady state or high intensity internal training, making it an ideal supplement to combine with the fat burning capabilities of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
What does Acetyl L Carnitine do?
Acetyl L Carnitine is a more bioavailable form of L-carnitine, which is made naturally in the body, and is an amino acid made from lysine and methionine. Carnitine is a potent fat burner thanks to the transportation of fats into cells to be used for energy in the body.
What are other benefits of taking Acetyl L Carnitine?
Are you a Vegetarian? Certain amino acids are usually lacking in vegetarian diets. If you are vegetarian, no matter of age, then you too, could benefit from supplementation, thereby treating or preventing carnitine deficiency
Feeling Old? Our bodies produce carnitine in the kidneys and liver, in small amounts, every day. As we get older, our ability to produce carnitine diminishes. You should keep protein levels high while engaging in high-intensity training to ensure sufficient carnitine levels.
Lacking Energy? L-carnitine is involved in cellular metabolism, Acetyl L Carnitine can help increase energy production in the mitochondria, the “power plants” of all cells, and thereby may generally boost physical and mental energy when taken as a dietary supplement.
Still Sore? Supplementing with Acetyl L Carnitine will increase recovery, as muscle lactate buildup is a limiting factor that reduces performance and causes muscle pain. If you can produce less of it and clear it faster, you will have a faster recovery
How much Acetyl L Carnitine should you take?
Optimum dosage ranges from 500 to 1,500 mg per day. Each serving of 3 capsules contains 1200mg of Acetyl L Carnitine and 300mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid. Each bottle contains 60 servings, enough for a 2-month duration if taken each morning.
When is the best time to take Acetyl L Carnitine?
The best time to take Acetyl L Carnitine is in the morning 20 minutes before performing morning cardio on an empty stomach before breakfast. Once carnitine is elevated, metabolism in the body is dependent on the intensity of exercise, allowing for better energy use and performance.
How Long can you take Acetyl L Carnitine for?
Carnitine doesn’t saturate the muscle unless accompanied by high insulin concentrations. Carbohydrates trigger insulin release, which allow the carnitine to load into the muscle, but consuming large quantities of carbs can trigger fat gain and hold you back from achieving a lean and sculpted physique. A substitute for carbs is alpha lipolic acid (ALA), which increases insulin sensitivity by activating AMPK in skeletal muscle. You’ll find 300mg of ALA in every serving of True Performance Nutrition Acetyl L Carnitine, as it’s a major regulator of cellular energy metabolism. It can take between 3 and 6 months of supplementing with Acetyl L Carnitine to saturate the muscles and reap the benefits of improved energy production, making it a lifestyle supplement and not one that you need to cycle as frequently as other supplements.

What does Acetyl L Carnitine pair well with?Acetyl L Carnitine works great when taking with CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), which helps keeps cells healthy and makes them more sensitive to insulin, allowing your body to get the most energy production out of supplemental carnitine. The less carnitine you have in the body, the fewer fatty acids that get into the cell, meaning you don’t burn them for energy. Instead, the fatty acids are stored as fat.
