What is Acetyl-L-Carnitine for Horses?

Our Acetyl-L-Carnitine for horses, also known as ALCAR is a compound normally found within the horse’s body. It is produced from another compound, L-Carnitine, which the body synthesizes from the amino acids lysine and methionine. This naturally occurring amino acid helps the body mobilise fat for energy.

It is necessary for moving long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria to be burned. Studies have shown that the availability of free carnitine in the muscle cell influences the relative rate of burning fat or carbohydrate.
