Byron J. Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist
Living to the ripe old age of 100 is not always a lot of fun. Typical problems involve poor endurance and weakness, especially upon physical activity (when this happens before age 60 its called fibromyalgia). Another key problem is deteriorating cognitive function and memory.
A new controlled study shows that 2,000 mgs per day of carnitine reduces body fat, increases muscle, and facilitates an increased capacity for physical and cognitive activity by reducing fatigue and improving cognitive functions. Its never to late for nutrition to help!
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is the preferred supplemental form of this nutrient, as it readily crosses the blood brain barrier to support cognitive function as well as providing the cellular energy boost that helps muscles.
