Acetyl" •Carnitine (ALC), as the name implies, is related to carnitine. ALC has many functions in the human body that differ from carnitine, but they are in essence the same compound from a practical point of view to you of this pamphlet.
What is it supposed to do?
See above description of carnitine
What does the research have to say?
The research on ALC relating to weight loss is even more lacking than with carnitine. Research with ALC has generally focused on its potential health benefits, of which there are many. ALC does have some unique differences from that of carnitine, but those differences don't appear to have any added effects on weight loss per se.
What does the real world have to say?
Pretty much the same thing as for carnitine. For weight loss it's a bust as far as feedback is concerned.
