Acetyl-l-carnitine: anti-aging applications and dosing recommendations

Acetyl-l-carnitine, which is available through the NYBC purchasing co-op at the lowest price we’ve seen, is one of the key components of the NYBC MAC Pack, and may be especially useful in counteracting peripheral neuropathy.

Furthermore, it’s also one of the most studied dietary supplements to counter the effects of aging; taking 1,500 mg a day (a commonly suggested dose) of this supplement may improve cognitive function and mood. As we’ve written elsewhere on this blog, the B vitamins and the botanical gingko biloba also have good evidence to support their use to address the effects of aging. Finally, don’t forget that recent research has pointed to daily physical exercise–such as walking–as one of the most important things you can do to counter age-related cognitive decline.
