What is ALCAR?

Acetyl L-Carnitine (R)-3-Acetyloxy-4-trimethylammonio-butanoate, and commonly abbreviated as ALCAR is an acetylated form of the compound L-Carnitine. Unlike Carnitine, Acetyl L-Carnitine is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Once it reaches the brain, it is converted into Acetyl-COA, which binds with choline already present to become acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter closely tied to many important cognitive functions, such as the formation of memory, reasoning skills, processing of perceptual data and the ability of neural structures to grow. Acetyl L-Carnitine is more bio-available than non-acetylated forms of Carnitine, which cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. Acet

Low vitamin D associated with faster decline in cognitive function

A research team has found that Vitamin D insufficiency was associated with faster decline in cognitive functions among a group of ethnically diverse older adults, according to an open-access paper published in JAMA Neurology.* According to the researchers — Joshua W. Miller, Ph.D., of Rutgers University, New Brunswick, N.J., and coauthors from the University of California, Davis — Vitamin D may influence all organ systems, not just calcium absorption and bone health. Both the vitamin D receptor and the enzyme that converts 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) to the active form of the vitamin are expressed in all human organs, including the brain. So research has increasingly examined the associatio

Some interesting facts about CDP-Choline

CDP-Choline – 2-hydroxy-N,N,N-trimethylethanaminium – is a water-soluble essential nutrient that was recently named to the B-complex family of vitamins. CDP-Choline is necessary for the development and maintenance of health brain cell membranes to ensure effective signalling, structural integrity and neuronal fluidity. This nutrient is also used alongside acetic acid to synthesize acetylcholine in neurons. Sources of choline are commonly used alongside the Racetams in nootropic stacks (such as iEnahced Core) due to their complimentary mechanisms of action. The American Institute of Medicine recommends that adults get at least 425 – 550 mg of choline in their diets every day. However, as much
