A unique multi-functional antioxidant formula.*. What is Vitacost CoQ10 + Alpha Lipoic Acid + Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl? Vitacost CoQ10 + Alpha Lipoic Acid + Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl is combination formula featuring three antioxidant nutrients that have been shown to promote cardiovascular and cognitive health.*. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is a fat-soluble vitamin-like compound found in every human cell. It’s used by the mitochondria (“power plants”) of cells to produce energy. CoQ10 is found in highest concentration in cells of organs that require large amounts of energy such as the heart. It also functions as an antioxidant. While the body produces CoQ10 on its own levels decline over time with a steady decrease beginning after age 30. Factors such as aging genetics and cholesterol-lowering statins can lead to a CoQ10 deficiency. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA). ALA is a natural compound that functions as a co-factor in vital energy-producing reactions.* The body produces very little ALA on its own and it is difficult to obtain sufficient quantities from diet. ALA is well known as a powerful antioxidant.* It has been called a “universal antioxidant” because it is effective in water-based substances such as blood while its reduced metabolite dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA) is effective in fatty tissues and membranes.*. Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC). ALC is the acetyl ester of carnitine an amino acid derivative and is distributed throughout the central and peripheral nervous system. Both ALA and ALC are known as mitochondrial antioxidants that can provide anti-aging nutrition.*. How does Vitacost CoQ10 + Alpha Lipoic Acid + Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl support health? All three nutrients help provide antioxidant protection against free radical damage.*. All three nutrients have been shown to promote cardiovascular and cognitive health.*. All three nutrients have been shown to be effective in maintaining blood pressure levels already within the normal range.*. ALA enhances the antioxidant activity of vitamins C and E and coenzyme Q10. ALC is a precursor to the important brain neurotransmitter acetylcholine which contributes to the support of cognitive function and memory.*.
