N-Acetyl L-Carnitine / ALCAR

N-Acetyl L-Carnitine (also known as ALCAR, ALC, or LAC) is a naturally occurring amino acid produced by your liver and kidneys. It is then transported to other parts of the body, including the heart and the brain, where it easily crosses the blood-brain barrier, unlike standard L-Carnitine. ALCAR has the metabolic effects of L-Carnitine, but has the added advantage of a number of cognitive functions, as it can cross the blood-brain barrier.

The principal health benefits of ALCAR can be summarized as follows:

  • Increases Brain Energy & Performance

  • Slows Rate of Cognitive Decline

  • Reduce Muscle Damage & Increased Muscle Recovery

  • Increased Power Output & Muscle Fuel Metabolism

  • Effective For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Improved Attributes Related to Sex

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine / NALT / TYR

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, also known as NALT or NAT, is an easily absorbed, acetylated form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine. Acetylation allows the amino acid to become water soluble and thus used as a more bioavailable supplement. Where N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine still carries the physical benefits of standard L-Tyrosine such as offsetting physical fatigue & retention of muscle mass, in this document we will focus mainly on the cognitive performance benefits.

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine has a number of benefits, which can be summed up as follows:

  • Boosts Neurotransmitters For Fight or Flight Response

  • Enhanced Cognitive Speed & Flexibility

  • Improved Performance Under Stress

  • Lowers Blood Pressure Under Stress

  • Combats ADHD
