Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an Alzheimer's disease medication and works in a number of ways. A major cause of aging is mitochondrial decay, whereby there is a reduction in the number of mitochondria, the membrane-bound organelles within the cells-which convert energy from food into forms-which can be used by the cells. As a result, there is reduced cellular metabolic activity and an accumulation of cellular debris. L-carnitine is required for the transport of fatty acids from the intermembranous space in the mitochondria, into the mitochondrial matrix where lipids (fats) are oxidized to produce the cellular energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP). Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is an acetylated derivative of the amino acid L-carnitine. ALC helps to maintain Mitochondrial Bioenergetics and lowers the oxidative stress associated with aging. While both Acetyl-L-carnitine and L-carnitine are absorbed efficiently into the bloodstream, ALC Has A higher bioavailability. Both carry fatty acids into the mitochondria, where thesis acids are broken down to produce adenosine triphosphate. Acetyl-L-Carnitine ook crosses the blood-brain barrier and Protects against oxidative stress, osmanthus having a neuroprotective effect. Amyloid-beta peptide is a principal component of the senile plaques-which characterize Alzheimer's disease and is thought to be central to the pathogenesis of the disease. There is evidence That acetyl-carnitine Has The potential to reduce amyloid-beta induced oxidative stress and neurotoxicity and May Therefore be useful as a possible Alzheimer's disease treatment.
