Altrient Liposomal Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) - 30 sachets
Carnitine is a naturally occurring substance derived from an amino acid and found in almost all cells in the body particularly in the heart and skeletal muscles which utilise fat for energy. Red meat and dairy are the richest sources of carnitine, although small amounts can also be found in wheat, avocados, asparagus, tempeh and peanut butter. Carnitine levels decline with age.
It plays a crucial role in the production of energy in the mitochondria - the powerhouses of the cells, where it transports long-chain fatty acids to be burned or ‘oxidised’ to produce energy. Not only does carnitine increase the mitochondria’s potential to burn fat, it also offers protective effects acting as an antioxidant - thereby alleviating the accumulation of toxic substances produced during cellular process.
The bioavailability of standard Carnitine supplements is very low whereas Altrient liposomal supplements ensure almost complete absorption.
Altrient ALC uses a clever delivery system to ensure maximum bioavailability and absorption
By combining its ingredients with essential phospholipids which form a major part of our cell membranes. Through the manufacturing process these phospholipids form tiny spheres around the water-soluble ingredients. These spheres are known as liposomes. These microscopic liposomal spheres, loaded with ingredients, are almost 100% bioavailable. That is what makes Altrient ALC so effective as almost all the ingredients in each sachet gets into your system and remain available.
Dosage and Use
As a dietary supplement, take one to two packets per day. For best results, snip or tear the notched end of the packet, squeeze into your favourite cool beverage and drink on an empty stomach. We do not recommend mixing the product with a hot beverage or with any high-speed blenders or food processors. It is best to take the product in close proximity to a meal if you suffer with symptoms of low blood sugar.
Refrigeration is required. Can remain at room temperature for up to 7 days for transportation. Do not freeze or place the product in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
Acetyl L-carnitine should only be taken under the supervision of a health professional if you have epilepsy, severe depression or are bipolar, or if you take thyroid replacement hormones. Acetyl L-Carnitine may also cause disturbances to sleep, including highly vivid dreams, if taken within 6 hours of going to sleep.

We do our very best to recycle cardboard boxes and loosefill packing from our suppliers. As a rule, Evolution Organic now only buys loose fill packing chips made of corn starch which is 100% biodegradable which is why it is suitable for composting or can simply be thrown in the waste bin without doing harm to the environment. The manufacturing process for corn starch loose fill is low in energy consumption and demands no chemical agents, only water.
