What Is Pure Nutrition ALA-ALC?

Pure Nutrition ALA-ALC contains a full 225 mg of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) and 525 mg of acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) per capsule. These ingredients are key for mitochondrial function, blood glucose balance, and fatty acid oxidation (“burning”) in the human body.

Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid and Acetyl-L-Carnitine

Alpha lipoic acid is an endogenous thiol derived from the medium-chain fatty acid caprylic acid. It is an important biomolecule for aerobic respiration and has versatile roles throughout the body, particularly for antioxidant support and promoting insulin sensitivity.  ALA helps the body remove sugar from the bloodstream and has an impressive ability to aid in the delivery of a wide variety of other nutrients, including creatine.
Likewise, L-carnitine is an essential molecule that transports long-chain fatty acids across mitochondrial membranes so they can be oxidized (“burned”) for energy. In other words, L-carnitine is the molecular “chaperone” for many fats consumed in the diet.
Without sufficient carnitine, fatty acids can’t be used for energy efficiently and are more likely to be stored as body fat. Hence, L-carnitine is vital to fat loss and supporting fatty acid metabolism. Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is a highly bioavailable form of L-carnitine that also appears to have neuroprotective properties [3].
This is why we created Pure Nutrition ALA-ALC to combine the metabolic benefits of these promising micronutrients.

Research and clinical evidence suggests that ALA and ALC may [1, 2, 3]:1,2

  • Increase cellular levels of glutathione, a primary endogenous antioxidant
  • Mitigate oxidative damage
  • Enhance nutrient delivery and uptake in muscle tissue
  • Improve insulin sensitivity and fatty acid oxidation
  • Support energy levels for sustained periods of time
  • Promote cardiovascular health
