Rated 5 out of 5 by from Important biological chemistry Many studies show that acetyl l carnitine is an important part of brain chemistry. I have found this is true and have experienced the benefits of cognitive function myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to Takes a few days to kick in. I definitely noticed a difference when I stopped taking for a few weeks. Buy the large size for better value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product. I've actually been taking this for several years now. I take 2 tabs every morning. This is really something that you can really know/feel helps. My mind works so much better and I seem to have more energy throughout the day. I take this along with some other supplements like 'pregnenalone' and MSM. I've been taking the Pregnenalone for several years too, it works great also. I just started taking the MSM a few weeks ago, I take the powder and mix with orange juice, it works great too. All three works great for overall wellness!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Brain, Healthy Body I have taken this supplement for years to help nourish my brain and keep it healthy and also to assist me in maintaining a healthy weight and staying fit even in my 60's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from POWERHOUSE This is a wonderful powerhouse that is part of my daily nutritional supplement regimen. . . . It has been for a long, long time, and it will continue to be forever. I take 4 capsules daily, because I like to take a 2 gram dosage, or more, of all my Amino Acids. I've been doing this since the 1970s, so I have a lot of successful experience with my Amino Acids supplements. Read up on Acetyl L-Carnitine; I'm sure you will be delighted with how awesome you find out that it is. Very versatile and valuable. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a Must for me! I've been taking this product since 2008 ... it is 2016 as of this comment. This is one product I Do NOT Want To Be matter how much it goes up in price! My only concern is the 'other ingredients' of magnesium stearate and silica, but after 8 years it is definitely a GO!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product-used for years Natural Dr recommended this for my husband many years ago and he is still using. Swanson's price cannot be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product I go to homeopath every 3 mo and he will tell me what my body need to keep in the best balance. He recommended this for burning fat around the organs in the body. I don't know how well worked because i take more supplements and they all work to balance me. I always shop for quality and price and Swanson is the best place to shop.
