Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl
What is Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl?
Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl is a combination formula featuring two well-known antioxidant nutrients. Antioxidants are substances that help protect healthy cells throughout the body from free radical damage.*
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) has been called a “universal antioxidant” because it is effective as an antioxidant in water-based substances such as blood, while its reduced metabolite dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA) is effective in protecting fatty tissues and membranes.*
Acetyl L-Carnitine is the acetyl ester of carnitine, an amino acid derivative, and is distributed throughout the central and peripheral nervous system.
ALA and ALC are known as mitochondrial antioxidants that can provide anti-aging nutrition.* Mitochondria are the “power plants” of cells, providing the energy necessary to fuel a broad range of cellular processes.
