Scientists believe the antioxidant carnitine has proven physical and mental benefits, and a long list of healthful effects that are claimed but not verified yet.
The substance is an amino acid derivative that occurs naturally. It transports fatty acids into the body's cells, where the fat is used to generate energy. Your body can produce it naturally when you have sufficient vitamin C.
If carnitine does everything its supporters say, taking supplements of it could well improve your life. And the only people cautioned against taking it are pregnant women and those on certain medications.
Carnitine may help with weight loss, and scientists are exploring whether it has a positive impact on brain function.
VALI health supplements use N-acetyl L-carnitine in Neuro Force Nootropic Cognitive Support capsules  for its reported benefits in increasing alertness and protecting and repairing neurons. There is also some evidence that L-carnitine alleviates neurological decline and fatigue.
Nootropics are also called "smart drugs" and "cognitive enhancers." The theory holds that they help you think better, remember more, and be more alert, creative, focused, and motivated.
The type of carnitine in VALI is perhaps the most effective form to help your brain, according to Healthline.com . Studies in animals show it may help prevent mental decline from aging and improve learning. It may also, human studies show, reverse loss of brain function from Alzheimer's. It may also improve brain function in alcoholics.
One of the benefits of L-carnitine is in fat loss, as this video explains.
The main role of carnitine is in mitochondrial function and the production of energy, Healthline says . We said earlier that it transports fatty acids into the cells. Specifically, it transports fat into the mitochondria of cells.
Healthline says carnitine, which is stored in muscles, may promote the healthy function of mitochondria. Mitochondria is involved in healthy aging and warding off disease.
Carnitine may be used to treat brain and heart and brain diseases at some point. Research is underway about its potential disease-fighting benefits.
A WebMd article has a long list of the benefits of carnitine . The site says research has found it is helpful in improving red blood cell counts for dialysis patients. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration gives its approval for oral or intravenous treatments in people with serious kidney disease if they have a carnitine deficiency.Another area where supplementation is known to be helpful is for who have carnitine deficiency because of a genetic disease.
Other possible benefits of carnitine:
The WebMd article has a long list of other conditions that there is insufficient evidence to say carnitine helps with. Possible benefits include alleviating acne, fatigue in older adults and cancer patients, male pattern baldness, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, autism, and irregular heartbeat.
Some people claim carnitine also helps with involuntary weight loss in very sick people, a weakened and enlarged heart, celiac disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, and diabetes.
Still others hope carnitine can help with dry eye, muscle soreness from exercise, swelling of the liver, high cholesterol and triglycerides, low birth weight, and migraine.
In addition, there is insufficient evidence for a long list of other conditions that carnitine may help heal or prevent. More research is needed around carnitine and its variations for all the conditions mentioned above.
VALI's Neuro Force supplement is not just carnitine. Neuro Force's other mental health enhancers are:

Beginning an exercise program can be daunting, especially if you have never really been into fitness before.
Some people, when they exercise, strive for a bikini body. If you have a diving bell body, don't fret, you too can be helped by regular exercise. You can look better, but more important feel better if you eat right, exercise, and get enough sleep.

You've heard running can help you slim down, help maintain heart and lung health, and keep your body strong. Those benefits alone can help you feel well mentally.
But did you know that running can also help lift your mood and even ward off depression? It can help you be more creative and productive and feel less stressed out.
No wonder about 50 million Americans, or 15 percent of the population, jog or run regularly!

Whatever kind of intense exercise you do, whether running, weightlifting, team sports, or hard work, your body needs rest days.
In fact, Healthline says rest days are just as important as exercise days, and no regimen is complete without both exercise and rest. Rest enhances your energy and restores the body to full capacity.
