ALC+ is a food supplement based on acetyl-L-carnitine suitable for those who practice intense physical activity.
Acetyl-L-carnitine is a substance in which a carnitine molecule is bound to acetic acid, a characteristic that makes it particularly similar to the tissues of the body. Carnitine is a vitamin-like compound responsible for transporting long-chain fatty acids into the cellular units responsible for energy production, i.e. the mitochondria. In addition, carnitine is involved in other fundamental physiological functions, such as the metabolism of branched chain amino acids.
Carnitine is regularly used in sports supplements to increase physical performance, as it induces more efficient energy production by the trained muscle. This substance, in fact, positively influences resistance and tolerance to exercise, because skeletal muscles depend on an adequate intake of carnitine to be able to use fatty acids efficiently for energy purposes. In addition, carnitine supplements induce significant improvements in cardiovascular function after physical activity.
Carnitine supplements such as ALC+ are useful for all athletes and, in particular, when greater physical resistance to stress is required.
