The Benefits of Combining Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) and Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) | Trio Nutrition

Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) and apple cider vinegar (ACV) are two popular nutritional supplements and there may be some evidence to suggest that combining ALC and ACV may offer a number of health benefits.

Weight Management - Detox & Cleanse

One of the most commonly claimed benefits of combining ALC and ACV is weight management - detox and cleanse. ALC is an amino acid that is involved in the metabolism of fatty acids. It is thought that ALC may help boost metabolism and support weight loss by helping the body to burn more fat. ACV is also commonly used for weight management due to its ability to reduce appetite and regulate blood sugar levels.*

Heart health

ALC and ACV both have antioxidant properties that may help protect the heart and reduce the risk of heart disease. Antioxidants help to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to the development of heart disease.*

Supports athletic performance

ALC is commonly used as a supplement for athletes to improve muscle function and reduce muscle fatigue. ACV may also help to support muscle function by reducing inflammation and improving blood flow to the muscles.*

Boosted energy levels

ALC may help improve energy levels by increasing the utilization of fat for energy production, while ACV can help regulate blood sugar levels, which can also support energy levels.*

Improved brain function

ALC is commonly used as a nootropic supplement to improve brain function and memory. ACV may also have a positive impact on brain function, as it has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, which can benefit brain health.*


There is some evidence to suggest that combining ALC and ACV may offer a number of health benefits. However, more research is needed to confirm these findings. If you are considering taking ALC and ACV in formulation such as Trio Nutrition's Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules, it is important to consult your doctor first to make sure that it is right for you.

Here are some additional tips for getting the most out of ALC and ACV:

  • Take ALC and ACV on an empty stomach. This will help to ensure that your body absorbs them as effectively as possible.
  • Drink plenty of water when taking ALC and ACV. This will help to flush out toxins and keep your body hydrated.
