Acetyl-l-carnitine helps cells produce energy more efficiently.
Carnitine is an amino acid that has been proven to reverse ageing.
It plays a key role in facilitating the delivery of fuel into the mitochondria of cells where it is converted into energy. Mitochondria are the energy-producing organelles in the cell, whose job it is to make adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of life, by burning fuel in the presence of oxygen. This process inevitably leaves the mitochondria themselves subject to very high levels of damaging free radical attack by reactive oxygen species. Mitochondria lack many of the defence systems found in other parts of the cell, so they decline in number and efficiency with age, leading to a corresponding decline in ATP production. Reduced ATP means less energy to support the vital life-sustaining processes of the body, which can result in the onset of a number of diseases and ageing.
Used together with the powerful antioxidants contained in Lumity, carnitine protects against and repairs existing age-induced mitochondrial DNA damage, boosts mitochondrial function and improves energy turnover.
Acetyl-l-carnitine also has the rare ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain, where it acts as a powerful antioxidant to help prevent brain cells' deterioration. This helps sustain brain function and mental acuity as we age.
Carnitine provides anti-ageing benefits by enhancing energy production in the cell, which is needed for cellular repair and eliminating cellular debris. Studies have also shown that carnitine helps prevent muscle loss during illness and also prevents the muscle loss associated with ageing, known as sarcopenia.
It improves bone mineral density, is protective of liver function and enhances the immune system, especially under stressful conditions. A natural anti-inflammatory, it also enhances the sensitivity of insulin receptors, helping to decrease blood sugar and circulating levels of insulin.Buy Lumity
