Source Naturals Acetyl L-Carnitine & Alpha-Lipoic Acid support the body's own system for the maintenance of cell function as we age. Acetyl L-carnitine assists the critical conversion of choline into acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of the most important neurotransmitters essential for memory, learning, concentration and muscle movement. Acetyl L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body and helps produce energy. Acetyl L-Carnitine is used for a variety of mental disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, age-related memory loss, late-life depression, alcohol related thinking problems, and Lyme disease related thinking problems. It is also used for Down syndrome, poor circulation in the brain, cataracts, nerve pain due to diabetes, nerve pain due to drugs used in the treatment of aids, and facial paralysis. Some men use it for infertility, low testosterone levels due to aging, and Peyronie’s disease. Alpha-Lipoic Acid has the capability of fighting free radicals in both fatty environments and water-based environments, such as muscle and skin. Alpha-Lipoic Acid also supports the activity of the mitochondria and energy production in the body. It has been shown to inhibit cross-linking among proteins, a process that contributes to the aging process in the body. Alpha-lipoic acid activates a collagen-regulating factor known as AP-1 that turns on enzymes that digest glycation-damaged collagen. It also improves vascular function and helps the repair process in damaged tissues as well as helping neutralize and remove various toxic metals, including mercury, from the body.
