is necessary for the hippocampus to work correctly. This is the part of the brain that is responsible for major memory function. The hippocampus has been known to shrink in people with PTSD.

In studies with mice, they found that depressed mice have very low levels of Acetyl-L-Carnitine and once they are given a supplement they bounce back to normal.

In another study of 116 depressed people with matching controls had significantly lower Acetyl-L-Carnitine than the non-depressed people in the study. In fact, the more depressed the person was the lower the Acetyl-L-Carnitine levels.

It has been known to show benefits with three days.
