Product Overview

Muscle, metabolism & nerve support

Acetyl-L-Carnitine, also known as ALCAR, is an amino acid with antioxidant properties that is key for energy production. Providing it to hard-working, active horses encourages optimal muscle function and recovery, as it enables the body to generate energy from fats. By maximizing energy efficiency, it ensures your horse's muscles have a sufficient supply to perform and relax during and after rides. It additionally activates an enzyme that directs glucose into energy-generating pathways rather than storage, allowing it to be utilized as fuel for muscles instead of raising blood sugar levels. This makes it a smart support choice not just for performance horses, but also those with metabolic concerns. Along with diet and exercise, it may help your horse achieve a healthy weight. Lastly, acetyl-L-carnitine has antioxidant properties and plays a role in nerve cell production, supporting healthy nerve tissue and protecting against oxidative stress at the cellular level. 
  • Encourages optimal muscle function and recovery

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend Recommended by an equine nutritionist for my horse during rehab and some tying up issues. My horse is doing really well, so I'm going to continue using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No tying up! Do I know if it works? I honestly don't know, but my PSSM Type 1 horse has never tied up (touch wood!) and copes well on 5 mile trail rides. It makes me more comfortable knowing that it's helping to make his glucose more bioavailable rather than being locked in his muscles. Initially I thought he'd never eat it because it has such a potent vinegar-type smell, but soaked with his Sport Horse Grass pellets, it dissolves 100% and he doesn't bat an eyelash at the taste!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was recommended this product for Was recommended this product for my 23 year old Hanovarian/Thoroughbred cross, for his EPM. I noticed after him being on it for 2 weeks, he started keeping balance better in his hind end, stand on all 4 legs , used to stand on 3 not knowing where the other leg was. It has really helped out with his mobility. Thank you Uckele for referring me this product without having to spend a fortune on something else that "might" work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seeing positive changes in my PSSM/EPSM horse. My horse started bucking (at about age 8) under saddle. He has always been an “easy keeper” and preferred to stand around and eat. The trainer called him lazy and said he needed an attitude adjustment. :/ My vets thought he was just fatigued suggested banimine and Roboxin for the muscle tightness and give it time. So that's what I did I gave him time off and the months turned into years. He stopped tying up but became very overweight. I knew something else was going on. Short story, I changed his tack, had a new custom-made saddle, took him for chiropractic and acupuncture, started riding him again. His symptoms were not getting better but worse, he couldn't stand for the farrier, he had signs of shifting lameness, would tense up in abdomen, the developing tremors in the flank area were more frequent and the tie-up episodes were awful! I had to do something... after hours and days on the Internet I sent a sample of his hair to have checked for (what I had never heard of) PSSM. Results came back positive for PSSM1. I immediately changed his diet to low starch/low sugar put him on 5000mg magnesium, 2000 mg Coconut oil, Vitamin E and selenium, I hand walked him everyday or at least light lunging. I noticed slight changes but still could not ride him without him offering to buck or tying up. The big change came when I took him off high fat and replaced it with Acety-L-Carnitine Uckele brand. He has been on 10mg a day for 2 weeks. He is much more comfortable, has more energy, isn't near as “starving” all the time, and is loosing his fat pockets. I am very encouraged! (Side note: from all my research; If you decide to try Acety-L-Carnitine be sure you're not giving oils/fats. They can't have both.) It's one or the other. Good Luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acetyl-L-Carnitine Higher doses have helped my neurological horse trip much less, almost completely eliminating tripping down to one small trip per ride versus several trips at the walk before starting AlCar. His neurological issue stems from arthritis in his neck at C7. He's ridden 5 days a week in dressage and on trails and has been sound for almost a year now.
