Seeking Health Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a natural substance present throughout the human body that plays a vital role in normal brain and nervous tissue function. It helps maintain healthy levels of neurotransmitters, the chemical mediators of brain electrical transmissions. It is also essential for the production of energy from fats needed to support brain and heart function. 30 veg caps
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid naturally produced in the body that helps with energy production. Although the body can make acetyl-L-carnitine, the majority of acetyl-L-carnitine and other carnitine derivatives must come from the diet. Under conditions of stress and illness, the body’s ability to make acetyl-L-carnitine may be significantly impaired and dietary sources become critically important. Meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products are the richest source of carnitine derivatives.
Acetyl-L-carnitine by Seeking Health provide much greater amounts of L-carnitine than are readily available from the diet and in the form most important for normal brain and nervous tissue function.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is important for:
• Energy production: Fatty acids serve as one of the primary energy sources for the body. Skeletal and heart muscle obtain most of their energy from fat breakdown. For these tissues to produce energy from fat, fatty acids must be transported to specific locations (mitochondria) within cells. Acetyl-L-carnitine transports individual fatty acids for energy production. Acetyl-L-carnitine is also an important regulator of sugar metabolism.
• Brain and nervous system: Acetyl-L-carnitine has a vital role in maintaining brain function and is naturally found throughout the central nervous system. In addition to producing energy, acetyl-L-carnitine is used for neurotransmitter synthesis to maintain healthy brain function.
• Healthy aging: Aging induces many structural and functional changes in the body. The body’s ability to synthesize acetyl-L-carnitine declines with age and tissue levels fall significantly. Supplementing with acetyl-L-carnitine can restore healthy tissue levels to normal, improve energy metabolism, and decrease oxidative stress. These important effects help maintain healthy heart and brain function.

Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health
