  • Description

    Carnitine and its derivatives exist in a carnitine pool in the body. Cellular enzymes and transporters rapidly convert the carnitine to the required form and transport it to the tissues. Carnitine and its derivatives play a key role in fat, carbohydrate, and protein metabolism and energy production and are critical components for mitochondrial metabolism. Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is the most important derivative of carnitine and occurs naturally in the body. Because ALC is considered to have greater bioavailability and is therefore more able to cross neurological membranes, it is the preferred form to take for promoting neurological health.The levels of carnitine and its derivatives are critical to normal biological functioning. Carnitine is present in the diet in red meats and dairy products, and humans can make carnitine from the amino acids lysine and methionine. However, carnitine deficiency can occur with metabolic disorders, and in conditions such as diabetic neuropathy (nerve pain) and other complications of diabetes.ALC has been studied in various conditions including neurological and cognitive disorders such as Alzheimers, dementia, depression, neuropathies, and cardiovascular disease, as well as with respect to the fatigue and pain associated with conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and sciatica.

    What Our Customers Are Saying

    ★★★★★

    I have been in multiple times since they opened and I love this store! Well organized, clean and really friendly staff. The owner is very friendly and genuinely cares about the customers. I was looking at some hair products and one of the employees came over and showed me her favourites and I ended up buying everything she recommended and I am not disappointed! My hair feels and smells amazing! This is seriously my favourite store in Fredericton! Such a great variety of products that you can feel safe using :)

    I am so grateful to all the staff, especially Eleanor, who have been super helpful when I have come into the store or called in. I only recently discovered Sequoia Fredericton, but IMO, having worked in the service industry myself, the greatest achievement of a business is to have a team that exceeds service expectations and strives to offer 'personalized' care to every person who walks through the door. This is what I get at Sequoia, which is now my go-to store! Thanks :)
