Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl -- 1600 mg per serving - 120 Capsules

Powerful antioxidant combination provides anti-aging nutrition and may help promote healthy cardiovascular and cognitive function.*. What is Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl? Vitacost 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. How does Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl support health? ALA may promote cardiovascular health by protecting against free radical damage.*. ALA and ALC can help to maintain blood pressure levels already within the normal range.*. ALC has been shown to reduce both physical and mental fatigue associated with aging.*. 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.*. Why choose Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl? Combines two antioxidant nutrients on one convenient formula. Contains 60 servings per bottle. Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value. About Vitacost. Vitacost nutritional products are manufactured to high standards of quality efficacy and safety.

"We take this product for cognitive/heart support and antioxidant supplementation. Been using for 30 days and do notice a difference with how sharp my thinking is on a daily basis, kind of amazing. They do need to upgrade the Alpha Lipoic to R-Lipoic for better assimilation - hence reason for 4 stars but otherwise an excellent product. Capsules digest well for their size."
