L-Carnitine is an amino acid naturally produced in the body. When given as a supplement, it functions as a natural nootropic.
How it Works:
L-Carnitine increases the acetylcholine levels in your Central Nervous System (CNS). Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter, meaning it is a chemical used to send signals between nerve cells.
L-Carnitine also increases brain cell energy by increasing the production of ATP. It does this by helping convert fat molecules into ATP energy molecules that the cells use to function better.
This improved brain energy and increased acetylcholine lead to improved memory formation, learning, memory recall, critical thinking, focus, attention, and decreased mental fatigue.
L-Carnitine works synergistically with Alpha-GPC to increase the rate of acetylcholine formation to a greater extent than either ingredient does alone.
Because L-Carnitine increases the use of fat for energy production, it has been found to be a useful ingredient for fat loss.
