ALC - Acetyl-L-Carnitine
ALC - New ALC supplement from Reflex.
ALC hit the headlines in 2002 following studies that suggested
a combination of ALC & ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) may have
an "anti-ageing" effect, even reverse ageing to a certain degree.

Since then, both ALC and ALA have become increasingly popular for everyone,
not just the sporting sector. With the addition of Reflex ALA and ALC to our
product range, this combination has become an even more viable supplement due
to the favourable pricing of Reflex supplements. Check out the following details
ALC (Acetyl-L-Carnitine) is similar in form to the amino acid L-Carnitine and
also has some similar functions, such as being involved in the metabolism of
food into energy.
However, Acetyl-L-Carnitine is absorbed into the bloodstream more efficiently
than L-Carnitine and more importantly, Acetyl-L-Carnitine passes more effectively
through cell membranes and is utilized more efficiently in the mitochondria
of the cell.
Therefore as an amino acid energiser Acetyl-L-Carnitine reportedly has many
positive benefits including:
* Boosted immune health, energy, ATP production and stamina
* Maintain levels of testosterone after intense exercise
* Enhanced athletic performance
* Increased alertness, elevated mood and more focus
* Better quality sleep
* Facilitating weight management
* Anti-aging as it maintains youthful cellular energy metabolism
Suggested use for bodybuilding: Take 2 capsules prior to training and another
2 immediately after.
Suggested use for anti-ageing: Take 2 capsules daily. One in the morning, and
another late afternoon.
