The Core Ingredients of OxyAGE are Acetyl-L-Carnitine & Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Mitochondria Secret #1: Discover Boundless, Sustained Natural Energy
- Mitochondria Secret #2: Effortlessly Boost Brain Power
The combination of ALC & ALA provide multiple benefits particularly as we age. The mitochondria is the power plant of all your cells. The cell concept is pure science. Your cells make up tissues, which make up organs, which make up body systems like your cardiovascular, cognitive, hormonal, digestive, skin, immune system, and antioxidant protection.
If your cells have energy they function at their highest levels. When they lack energy they suffer and cannot carry out the processes of good health. To sustain a natural level of vibrant health science has now proven there are certain micro-nutrients we can take to boost cellular energy.
Acetyl-L-carnitine helps the body produce energy. It is important for heart and brain function, muscle movement, and many other body processes.
In the body, acetyl-L-carnitine is made from L-carnitine. It can also be converted to L-carnitine. L-carnitine is an amino acid (a building block for proteins) that is naturally produced in the body. It helps produce energy. Although it is an amino acid, L-carnitine is not used to make proteins.
Some people take acetyl-L-carnitine by mouth for a variety of mental disorders including Alzheimer's disease, age-related memory loss, depression, thinking problems related to alcoholism, thinking problems related to Lyme disease, and thinking problems related to very poor liver function (hepatic encephalopathy). It is also used for withdrawal from alcohol, Down syndrome, bipolar disorder, poor circulation in the brain after a stroke, cataracts, nerve pain due to diabetes, nerve pain due to drugs used in the treatment of AIDS or cancer, nerve pain caused by sciatica, fibromyalgia, and facial paralysis. Acetyl-L-carnitine is used for tiredness related to getting older, tiredness related to a disease called multiple sclerosis, a muscle wasting disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, high levels of activity in children with the genetic condition fragile-X syndrome, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is also taken by mouth and used for aging skin.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acids is called the universal antioxidant - it stands alone because it’s both fat- and water-soluble… it’s the only antioxidant that has the ability to recycle other antioxidants over and over again…and it regenerates glutathione, your body’s Master Antioxidant. Glutathione is essential to a strong immune system, and it is best produced by your body. Taking Glutathione supplements have minimum effect but taking others, like ALA increase your natural levels of glutathione.
Alpha-lipoic acid is a compound found naturally inside every cell of the human body. Its primary role is to convert blood sugar (glucose) into energy using oxygen, a process referred to as aerobic metabolism. Alpha-lipoic acid is also considered an antioxidant, meaning that it can neutralize harmful compounds called free radicals that damage cells at the genetic level.
Alpha-lipoic acid can also recycle "used" antioxidants, including vitamin C, vitamin E, and a potent amino acid compound known as glutathione. Whenever these antioxidants neutralize a free radical, they destabilize and become free radicals themselves. Alpha-lipoic acid helps restore them by absorbing excess electrons and converting them to the back to their stable form.
