Athlete Certified Nutrition Carniplex 90

How is Carniplex different than your current L-Carnitine supplement?

First, if you are taking free form L-carnitine; your supplement is essentially a waste as it is the accepted standard that only 14-18% of free-form L-carnitine is absorbed. If your L-carnitine product contains either free form L-carnitine alone or free form L-carnitine as part of a magical combination done for nothing more than to get you excited about more forms of L-carnitine (in other words, its marketing!) then you should ditch that product immediately. In that sense, this is the single-most bioavailable carnitine complex on the market.

Defy Aging with
Age-related declines in mitochondrial function and increases in mitochondrial oxidant production are thought to be important contributors to the adverse effects of aging.
Tissue L-carnitine levels have been found to decline with age in humans & animals. One study found that feeding aged rats acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR) reversed the age-related declines in tissue L-carnitine levels and also reversed a number of age-related changes in liver mitochondrial function; however, high doses of ALCAR increased liver mitochondrial oxidant production. ALCAR supplementation in rats has also been shown to improve or reverse age-related mitochondrial declines in skeletal and cardiac muscle.

Unique Properties of ALCAR
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a modified amino acid that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it is oxidized & converted into ATP (chemical energy for the cell). Acetyl-L-Carnitine is in a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it exerts an antioxidant effect, helps to maintain healthy cellular energy metabolism and
supports brain function.
