Package: 40 tablets of 1300 mg
Recommended dosage: 1-2 tablets a day
It is a product containing Alpha Lipoic Acid, Acetyl L-carnitine, Nicotamide (Vitamin PP), and Group B Vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B5, B12) whose association promotes a strong antioxidant, neurotrophic and protective, encouraging the tropism of the Nervous System.
Alpha lipoic acid (or thioctic acid) is a very smaand ll fat soluble vitamin consists of eight carbon and two sulfur atoms, which exists in nature in two forms, as cyclic disulfide (oxidized form) or dihydrolipoic acid with open chain containing two sulfhydryl groups in position 6 and 8, easily interconvertible via redox reactions. Alpha lipoic acid is an essential cofactor for the activity of numerous enzymes, in particular for the dehydrogenase in the human organism. Alpha lipoic acid is synthesized independently by the organism but with ageand with the development of certain neuropathies, its production drastically decreases. Its main features are:
Thanks to these characteristics, alpha lipoic acid is extremely essential for organism to counteract the damages associated with the formation of free radicals, and when its intake is associated with that of group B complex vitamins, it represents a significant help in disorders associated with environmental, iatrogenic, food or consequential pathologies oxidations.
It is the tri-methylated ester of L-carnitine that is formed in the mitochondria of liver, kidney, and brain cells, through a reversible acetylation reaction of carnitine catalyzed by the enzyme acetyl-carnitine transferase. Acetyl-L-carnitine is able to easily cross the mitochondrial membrane, and regenerate for oxidative purposes L-carnitine through the transfer of acetyl group, thus enhancing lipid metabolism. Then acetyl carnitine plays an essential role to have a correct energy cellular metabolism and of trasmission in the Central Nervous System. It represents a form of storage of acetyl groups that may be associated with the Coenzyme A, necessary to trigger the Krebs cycle, thus also intervening in carbohydrate metabolism.
In pathological conditions the Acetyl carnitine is a valid protection factor for the cells of Central Nervous and Peripheral System, for its organelles, especially the mitochondrion, but it is also an excellent trophic element with a neuro-reparative action to restore the integrity of cells.
In fact promotes: the post-lesional recovery through a better cellular use of NGF (Neuronal Growth Factor); an increase of ATP production without which could not take place repair mechanisms; an increase of the neo-synthesis of phospholipids for the construction of membranes.
Nicotinamide is the amide of nicotinic acid, two similar molecules between them which refers niacin (or vitamin B3 or PP). As belonging to the group B, it is essential for a proper functioning of the CNS.Group B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B5, B12)
These vitamins provide energy in the organism, are essential for the lipids and proteins metabolism; are essential for the normal functioning of the nervous system, the muscle tone of the gastrointestinal tract, skin, hair, eyes, mouth and liver. Are useful in certain pathologic conditions of the central nervous system and in case of neuropathies.
