LCNP 008: Acetyl-L-Carnitine, The Emperor of Nootropics (podcast)

In this episode of the LiveCortex Nootropics Podcast, we’ll talk about the nootropic substance Acetyl-L-Carnitine (referred to as ALCAR throughout this post). We’ll discuss:

  1. ALCAR’s effect on Lipofuscin.
  2. How ALCAR protects neurons from alcohol induced neurotoxicity.
  3. ALCAR’s capacity to help the brain use fatty acids for energy production.
  4. Lipofuscin’s potential role in Alzheimer’s disease, and how ALCAR may be able to alleviate that.
  5. ALCAR and it’s facilitation of Nerve Growth Factor.
  6. More!
