The Science Behind the Product
LifeTime’s Anti Aging Formula combines two natural dietary supplement nutrients that reduce oxidation and free radical cellular damage.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) helps the body protect itself by promoting cellular energy production. ALA functions as a coenzyme in metabolism of sugars and bioenergetics, metabolic processes that turn food into energy.
ALA speeds the body’s breakdown and burning of sugar, which occurs primarily in muscle cells. In fact, some studies have found that ALA actually increases energy levels in muscle cells. Research also suggests that ALA may even have value in sports nutrition and weight control.
Unlike other antioxidants (e.g., vitamin C, vitamin E) which are either water soluble or fat soluble, only ALA acts in both aqueous and lipid media, making it bioavailable in a variety of locations. ALA is effective against a large variety of free radicals, those molecules that accelerate the process of aging and cause major health problems such as heart disease, cancer, arthritis, cataracts and asthma.
• POWERFUL antioxidant and antioxidant regenerator
• ESSENTIAL for cellular and muscular energy production
• INSTRUMENTAL in helping the body burn sugar
• PROTECTS against nerve damage from free radicals
• REDUCES free radical damage to eye lens
• PREVENTS some types of abnormal gene expression
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC), the acetyl derivative of L-Carnitine, is found throughout the central nervous system (CNS). ALC plays a broad role in CNS metabolism as a source of acetyl groups both for the synthesis of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter which plays an integral role in our nervous systems) and for energy-producing reactions. ALC is capable of readily crossing the blood-brain barrier. Thus, ALC has somewhat different applications to “regular” L-Carnitine and has found a suitable niche in “brain food” products.
ALC has a variety of properties that include restorative or even protective actions against aging processes and neurodegeneration. In more simple terms, this means that ALC has a vital role in maintaining brain function as we age. In fact, numerous sound clinical studies have shown that ALC supplementation can help in reducing the mental decline in Alzheimer’s disease patients. It is thought that ALC helps in slowing down the progression of Alzheimer’s because of its cholinergic properties (ability to stimulate formation of acetylcholine), as well as its ability to support cellular functioning at the mitochondrial level. Furthermore, researchers have found ALC to be beneficial in enhancing memory and alleviating depression in the elderly.
Thanks to mounting scientific evidence, it is widely accepted that L-Carnitine plays a crucial role in cardiovascular metabolism, exercise performance, weight management, infant nutrition and brain wellness.
