Body Science Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid supplement that promotes fat loss and improves energy.
Body Science International is an Australian sports supplement company based in Queensland.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is claimed to improve energy and fat metabolism.
Research does not support these claims, with it only proving beneficial in those with deficiencies (1).
However, carnitine has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity after exercise (2). This helps to promote fat loss.
The acetlyzed form of carnitine allows for faster delivery to the muscle cells.
