Liposomal ALC and R-ALA - Capsules (60 Count/ 30 Servings)
α-lipoic acid (ALA, thioctic acid) is a natural molecule found in plant, animal, and humans cells. Alpha Lipoic Acid helps convert glucose (carbohydrates) into energy (ATP) and has powerful antioxidant potential protecting mitochondria (where energy is made) from free radical damage. ALA's benefits healthy feet and nerves and have been studied in connection to diabetic polyneuropathy-associated pain and paresthesia. Plain powder ALA has a short half-life and poor absorption (about 30%) because of poor solubility and instability in the stomach. Our liposomal formulation, in which sheaths of phospholipid protect the ALA, dramatically improve alpha lipoic acid absorption. The R-ALA version (isomer) of ALA shows the best bioavailability. Although made by the human body in very low amounts, the ALA quantities produced are not sufficient to fulfill the energy requirement of the cell. Thus, it is mostly obtained from diet or supplementation What is Acetyl-L-Carnitine? Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR or ALC) is a highly bioavailable form of the amino acid L-carnitine transporting fats (long-chain fatty acids) into mitochondria for energy production as ATP (β-oxidation). The acetyl part contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is required for mental function, memory formation and cognition. ALC crosses the blood brain barrier (BBB) easily, promoting normal cognitive ability. At doses above 1500mg per day studies suggest it may be helpful in people with neuropathy.
- How much energy do you have? - Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant molecule found in all cells. It is needed to convert carbohydrates (glucose) into energy as ATP. Also known as ALA, it recycles other antioxidants like CoQ10 and glutathione. ALA modulates nitric oxide metabolite activity and promotes healthy blood circulation and nerve function unimpeded by neuropathy.
- Superior Absorption Of Pure R-ALA - We only use pure R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, because it is the ONLY active lipoic acid form found in nature and foods. Don't be tricked by amounts like 600mg or even 1000mg of "plain" powder ALA in other supplements - they mainly contain the S-ALA synthetic and inactive (form) which will not work. Our liposomal technology protects R-ALA in sheaths of membrane phospholipids which enhances the otherwise poor bioavailability of ALA.
- Fat Metabolism, Cognition And Athletic Performance - Acetyl-L-Carnitine also known as ALC or ALCAR, is an antioxidant derivative of l-carnitine. It's role is to transport fat (as fatty acids) into mitochondria to sustain energy production in all cells, especially brain and muscle. An increase in cellular energy can support cognition, memory formation and muscle endurance.
- Pro-Liposomal Enhanced Absorption - R-ALA and ALC have limited absorption and bioavailability when taken as plain powder, however our clinically proven liposomal vitamin encapsulations technology envelops ALA and ALC in a sheath of lipids providing sustained release and optimal absorption and to the circulation. This product is made in the USA in a cGMP facility and is vegan, non-GMO, gluten, soy, corn and alcohol free.
