Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) support the mitochondrial production of energy.* Acetyl-L-Carnitine is found in most cells in the body, including brain, nerve, heart, liver and sperm cells, where it participates within the mitochondria in metabolizing fatty acids into energy.*
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a water- and lipid-soluble antioxidant required by the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (within the mitochondrial matrix), which is the nexus between glycolysis and the Krebs or TCA (energy) cycle.*
Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate and Alpha Lipoic Acid work synergistically as antioxidants.* Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate Dihydrochloride is manufactured by Sigma-tau Industries, S.p.A. (Rome, Italy), the pioneer in L-Carnitine science under U.S. patent # 6,703,042 and Worldwide patent # EP1,202,956.
The combination of Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid is patented by Sigma-tau Industries under USA patent 6,365,622.
