Jarrow ALCA + ALA
- Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate and Alpha Lipoic Acid.
- 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.
