acetyl-l-carnitine

Several of us are trying the supplement acetyl-l-carnitine either by itself or along with other therapies. It has proven beneficial for Peyrones disease, a condition related to dups. (For more info. see previous topic: colchincine and acetyl-l-carnitine...)

FOR MORE INFORMATION, SEE PREVIOUS TOPIC: COLCHICINE AND ACETYL-L-CARNITINE.

I'm creating a little study group--collecting e-mails of others trying this, so we can all report back to this Forum at the same time--in about 6 months.

Before I decided to try this myself I found a good, readable source of information, as follows:

The source of information I used to determine if acetyl-l-carnitine was something I was willing to try was a resource book which I have and trust. It's called "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" by Phyllis and James Balch. I believe it is available in most health food stores (as well as book stores, of course).

You might want to see if you can find the book on the shelf at a health food store and simply look it up. It's listed in the index as CARNITINE and its in the section on amino acids. It discusses different forms of carnitine available. It's an over-the-counter supplement, considered quite safe. The functions associated with a-l-c are spelled out in detail in this book. The amount of a-l-c in the brain decreases with age. Also, carnitine deficiency has been identified as partly genetic in origin (as is dups).

Dups or not, a-l-c serves many beneficial functions. So I'm encouraging you to check it out!

If it sounds appropriate for you and you decide to give it a try, you can e-mail me your e-address and I will notify you when the group will report! (Of course you can report individually anything you want at any time, too.)

Best to all

Acetyl-L-Carnitine(and Vitamin K!)

I started The Rosedale Diet, and he suggests a number of supplements, including L-Carnitine, or Acetyl-L-Carnitine, and Vitamin K. I went from 100 Mcg per day, Vitamin K, to 2000 mcg per day, and noticed an amazing improvement in pain, and movement in my left hand, my main trouble area, in two to three days. Get Vitamin K-1, not Vitamin K-2, as there can be some toxicity with the latter, but check the web for references for Vitamin K, and connective tissue disorders. Quite encouraging!

L-Carnitine

L-Carnitine is an amino acidlike compound related to choline. It may assist in the conversion of choline into acetylcholine, one of the body's key neurotransmitters. L-Carnitine plays an essential role in fat metabolism, by transporting long-chain fatty acids into the Mitochondria; which act like power houses and make energy available to the body of the cell. L-Carnitine plays an important role in energy production by chaperoning activated fatty acids (Acyl-CoA) into the Mitochondrial matrix for metabolism. L-Carnitine plays a fundamental role in energy production, and it is used to support all bodily functions that require high levels of energy.
