Uses For Acetyl-l-Carnitine
Support For Cognitive Function, Memory, And Emotional
Well-Being: The efficacy of long-term acetyl-l-carnitine
supplementation was determined in a double blind,
placebo-controlled, randomized trial involving 130 elderly
individuals for a one-year period. In this trial,
acetyl-l-carnitine demonstrated the ability to slow
negative cognitive changes, and supported memory and

memory, behavioral and emotional support with
acetyl-l-carnitine supplementation. In an evaluation of 28
elderly individuals using acetyl-l-carnitine or placebo, the
