Formerly known as Alpha Lipoic Acid and Acetyl L-Carnitine
This combination of complementary nutrients, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Acetyl L Carnitine, provides powerful antioxidant properties, supports brain function and helps the body provide energy to the muscles.
What is Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA)?
Alpha-Lipoic acid is a sulphur-containing fatty acid that performs vitamin-like roles in the body. Also known as "Lipoic acid" or "thioctic acid," ALA functions in a similar way to B complex vitamins.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid Functions as a Antioxidant
Alpha-Lipoic acid functions as both a water-soluble and fat-soluble antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralize free-radicals, normal by-products of metabolism. ALA’s ability to act upon free radicals in both a watery and fatty environment makes it a highly versatile antioxidant.
Benefits of Alpha-Lipoic Acid
- Supports the Body’s Defence Against Free Radicals
- Recycles Antioxidant Nutrients such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E
- Helps Maintain a Healthy Blood Sugar Level when used as part of the diet
What is Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC)?
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a naturally occurring form of L-Carnitine, a vitamin-like nutrient synthesised in the body from amino acids (lysine and methionine).
ALC serves as a transport molecule for "active acetate," which is a source of fuel for metabolic processes that take place in cells. ALC carries active acetate (the "Acetyl" portion) directly into the mitochondrion, the cell`s energy-generating structure.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine supports Cognitive Function
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) may help support and maintain cognitive performance and emotional health in the elderly.
