Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate (ALCA™) and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) support the mitochondrial production of energy.* ALCA™ is a novel combination of the amino acids Acetyl-L-Carnitine and L-Arginine. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is found in high concentrations in human brain, nerve, heart, liver and sperm cells, where it participates in metabolizing fatty acids into energy by the mitochondria.*
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a water and lipid soluble antioxidant required by the mitochondrial matrix pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, which is the starting point of the Krebs or TCA (energy) cycle.*
ALCA™ and ALA work synergistically as antioxidants.* This formulation is protected by US Patent No. 6,365,622.
Biosint™ Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate is manufactured by Sigma-Tau Industries, S.p.A. (Rome, Italy), the pioneer in L-Carnitine science.
