The form Acetyl L-Carnitine is special because this form can penetrate the barrier of the brain and have a powerful antioxidant action on it. Its antioxidant action improves memory, prevents the loss of brain cells, improves intelligence and restores the metabolism of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine intervenes in the control of motor skills (Parkinson’s), memory (Alzheimer’s), eyes and to control Cortisol. It helps to maintain optimal levels of Dopamine and Acetylcholine and when these are at their best they manage to counteract the harmful effects of Cortisol for the loss of muscle mass. With age there is a decline of Dopamine and Acetylcholine that work in unison. We know that Dopamine activity is responsible for the relaxation of Luteic hormone that is responsible for the testosterone level produced by the testicles. An effective way to maintain the level of Acetylcholine and to keep an adequate Testosterone level is the taking of Acetyl L-Carnitine.
