What is Lipo-Carn?
It’s a combination of two of nature’s unsung heroes. We all know about vitamins and minerals and how important they are for our health, but it’s increasingly apparent that there’s far more to good nutrition than this. Nutrients don’t work in isolation – they need each other for the body to function as a whole. And scientists are continually discovering compounds and chemicals that help other nutrients do their jobs.
In recent years, there are two in particular that have caught researchers’ attention. One is alpha lipoic acid, a compound that’s involved in the production of energy from nutrients. And although the EU hasn’t yet approved health claims for alpha lipoic acid supplementation, some research suggests that it works as an antioxidant, helping to combat the effects of cell damage caused by ageing, unhealthy lifestyle and pollutants. Plus, it’s thought to help other antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E to work more effectively.
Another is acetyl-L-carnitine, an amino acid (a building block that forms proteins) that is broken down in the blood to carnitine, which is used by the body to transport fatty acids into cells where they are used to produce energy. It’s also thought to work synergistically with alpha lipoic acid; both nutrients in combination are being investigated for their potential role in anti-ageing. However, more research is needed before the EU will approve this health claim.
Who is this for?
Our vegan tablets are for anyone who wants to look after their wellbeing as they age.
Why is ours better?
We’ve combined both powerful nutrients in one convenient daily tablet, at the same high levels found in studies investigating their potential effect on ageing – 200mg alpha lipoic acid and 250mg acetyl-L-carnitine HCl.
