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.

The Benefits of Acetyl-L-Carnitine for Horses

Acetyl-L-Carnitine, also known as ALCAR or ALC is a supplement for horses commonly used to help support horses and ponies:

  • By working with the body’s natural pathways for mobilising fat for energy.
  • Supporting normal daily exercise and activity and tightness from training.
  • Helps to maintain and support glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity.
  • Helps to maintain healthy laminae, circulation and nerve pathways in hooves.

    My Welsh A who arrived in our herd at 160kg overweight has, over time, got down to her ideal weight using Forageplus products, Forageplus analysed hay and advice, however still had a substantial crest. It was recommended to me to start her on Acetyl-L-Carnitine (as an addition to her Forageplus approved diet) in order to stimulate energy from fat and already after only 3 weeks I can start to see the difference. Managing these native horses on our rocket fuel grass in the South is a minefield and as someone who wants their horses out and being horses as much as possible I highly recommend following advice from Forageplus.

    Have started my horse with suspected MIM on this product after reading a lot of articles by Dr Eleanor Kellon and joining her PSSM group and following a diet recommended by Forage Plus. I’ve learned that diet and exercise is key for these horses, so will no doubt take guidance from Forage Plus to ensure we tick all the boxes.
