What Is Acetyl L Carnitine Powder?
Acetyl L Carnitine from THE PROTEIN WORKS™ is another amino acid perfect for anyone who takes part in physical exercise. Part of the non-essential amino acid family these little molecules are produced by the body, though our body doesn't produce adequate amounts to sustain muscle contractions from high-intensity workouts.
How Does Acetyl L Carnitine Powder Work?
Used by many, as a very popular supplement to help improve body composition, L-Carnitine Powder is used by athletes from all different sports. When we exercise at lower intensities our body uses fat cells as an energy source of which carnitine makes this possible.
Among this, thousands of chemical reactions are happening at an incredible rate of knots. Enzymes are then introduced to help burn down fat stores and turn them into fatty acids to be used as fuel, a process involving L-Carnitine. Without L-Carnitine our body wouldn't be able to use fat as fuel and instead use our hard earned muscles to create energy, resulting in muscle loss and fat gain. Now that's something nobody wants.
What Does Acetyl L Carnitine Powder Do?
L-Carnitine helps to transport fatty acids from body fat stores, broken down by enzymes into your cells ‘Mitochondria’ to help use them as fuel and produce energy for muscle contractions. Mitochondria essentially acts as an engine for your cells, burning this fatty acid into energy. L-Carnitine is responsible for maintaining the health of your mitochondria which leads to its growth and health, playing a key role in fighting disease and healthy ageing. Using your fat stores as energy helps to break down unwanted stubborn fat, so often L-Carnitine is the go-to weight loss supplement. L-Carnitine is produced by our body, though in order to have sufficient amounts you must consume excessive amounts of vitamin C. So to make your life easier THE PROTEIN WORKS™ wizards decided to make it accessible all in one easy to consume powder.
When Is The Best Time To Take Acetyl L Carnitine Powder?
L-Carnitine is usually taken 30-45 minutes before or after working out to help promote fat burning and endurance. This allows your body to absorb what is needed and direct it to your muscles. Taking it with a source of carbohydrates such as TPW™ Protein Powders or TPW™ Protein Snacks will allow your body to absorb it quicker and easier. L-Carnitine comes unflavoured so you can easily add and mix it to any other supplement you want for added oomph.
