Acetyl-L-Carnitine Boosts Effectiveness of Alzheimer's TreatmentsA new study indicates that Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) can help improve cognitive function, ability to function, and behavioral symptoms in Alzheimers patients who had not responded to treatment with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChE-I). Past studies have shown that ALC has nerve-protective properties and it has recently been shown to reduce attention deficits in patients with Alzheimers disease after long-term treatment.
In the current study, researchers evaluated the effects of 2
grams daily of oral ALC for 3 months in 23 patients with mild
Alzheimers. The subjects also took their standard Alzheimers
medications, donepezil or rivastigmine. Study subjects had not
responded to treatment with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChE-I).
