Acetyl-L-Carnitine Physical Properties

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (HCL) is an ester of L-Carnitine. It is a white powder, easily soluble in water, and insoluble in acetone.

Acetyl-L-carnitine is a natural form of L-carnitine. It is a natural substance existing in the body, especially in muscle, brain, and sperm. It is involved in a series of important metabolic processes in the body. Cells take away acetyl groups and assist in energy transfer. Acetyl-L-carnitine acts as a delivery tool for fatty acids into the mitochondria in cellular respiration. Help fatty acids enter mitochondria to produce energy body ATP. Both acetyl-L-carnitine and L-carnitine have the ability to transport fat.

Unlike L-carnitine, acetyl-L-carnitine can cross the blood-brain barrier and provide sufficient energy for brain cells. At the same time, acetyl-L-carnitine also plays a vital role in the male reproductive tract. Sperm maturation is performed in the epididymis, and this process is assisted by acetyl-L-carnitine. As the sperm passes through the epididymis, a large amount of acetyl-L-carnitine remains in it. Higher concentrations of acetyl-L-carnitine are important to maintain good motility and fertility in sperm. The content of acetyl-L-carnitine in sperm with low activity is also low. When supplemented with acetyl-L-carnitine, the kinetic energy of sperm is significantly increased.
