Gen-Tec Nutrition Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a pure, single ingredient product that may be of benefit in weight loss and energy generation within working muscle cells.
L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid which is responsible for transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria of the cell for the generation of energy. Acetyl-L-Carnitine boasts superior absorption to L-Carnitine, and may enhance the use of fatty acids over carbohydrates as a fuel source for active muscles.
Gen Tec has sourced the best quality Acetyl-L-Carnitine available to ensure maximum absorption and benefit.

Unlike plain L-Carnitine, Gen-Tec's Acetyl L-Carnitine is when the carnitine is bound to an acytelated ester, meaning a larger portion of it is capable of crossing the blood brain barrier, when this is done it provides better nerve conduction and velocity and is especially good for things such as weight training or high agility athletes.
- Hi,Is this product fine to take by itself, or is it recommended to be taken with an alpha lipoic acid supplement? Cheers
You can use it as a stand alone supplement. If you want to maximise your fat loss goals then you can consider stacking it with an alpha lipoic acid.
