In addition to being a donor of acetyl groups for the synthesis of acetylcholine, which is an essential neurotransmitter.
Acetylcarnitine is characterized by a higher level of chemical stability and much better bioavailability, especially for nervous tissue (it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier). It has been found to be useful in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases due to its neuroprotective and strong antioxidant potential. ALC increases the use of long-chain fatty acids for energy production. This contributes to the overall improvement of tissue sensitivity to insulin.
