Optimized Carnitine with GlycoCarn® combines three advanced forms of Carnitine in one single formula to help you optimize your energy output including Acetyl-L-Carnitine, ArginoCarn® and Glycine Propionyl-L-Carnitine Hydrochloride (GlycoCarn®).

Acetyl-L-Carnitine crosses the blood-brain barrier to combat oxidative stress and promote energy production in brain and central nervous system tissues.109-112 It also supports the release and synthesis of acetylcholine, and enhances the release of dopamine from neurons and helps it bind to dopamine receptors.113-115ArginoCarn® is a patented form of acetyl-L-Carnitine arginate dihydrochloride that is molecularly bonded to the amino acid arginine and known as the AminoCarnitine® generation. Cell studies suggest that it can promote the growth of neurites that facilitate communication among nerve cells in the brain.49Glycine Propionyl-L-Carnitine Hydrochloride (GlycoCarn®) is a patented form of AminoCarnitine® that is molecularly bonded to the amino acid glycine, one of the precursor amino acids to carnitine biosynthesis. This form offers such wide benefits as enhanced fatty acid metabolism, antioxidant activity and increased nitric oxide production.116 Recent research also shows support for those that participate in sports activities.117-123 Lower cellular energy production is an inevitable part of aging. Carnitine, an amino acid derivative, is found in nearly all cells of the body, promoting the burning of fatty acids for fuel in the mitochondria. Cellular energy production declines as we age. So Life Extension has developed state-of-the-art products that provide optimized, third generation forms of Carnitine that help transport fatty acids right to the heart of your energy-producing mitochondria and produce cellular energy faster. And that boost in cellular function can help provide a quicker recovery after exercise and less muscle fatigue during exercise.106,107 It may also benefit your brain, heart and central nervous system right along with your muscles.107-112 *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
