Acetyl-L-Carnitine has demonstrated amazing abilities to fight fat, lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, increase energy, and improve heart function. Recent advances in understanding aging have focused on the role of the mitochondria, the tiny components in every cell that supply the energy needed for optimal cellular function. As we age, our mitochondria become less efficient because of the decay of components of their membrane system. This causes an increase in oxidative stress and further cellular deterioration. Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown in mice to improve mitochondrial function and decrease the production of free radicals. This leads to less DNA damage and improved function of many organs. We have added this expensive ingredient to the packs because we believe it has now been shown to be a necessary component of any regimen aimed at slowing the aging process. This amino acid is also directly linked to the improvement of cognition and memory in patients with Alzheimer's disease and neurological repair in stroke victims.*
L-Carnosine is a powerful antioxidant has been shown to protect against radiation, improve the function of the heart and even promote wound healing. This amino acid is also well known for its ability to rejuvenate cells. L-carnosine has an anti-glycosylation effect. Glycosylation takes place when sugar aldehydes react with the amino acids on the protein molecule--this results in the formation of AGEs (Advance Glycosylation End-products). These cross-linked, oxidized end-products can be quite damaging. L-carnosine bars this chain of events from happening, and therefore protects the body from many aspects of aging that glycosylation can cause.*
DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) is a chemical naturally produced in the human brain. It is thought to be used in converting choline to the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. Involved in the processes of learning and memory, acetylcholine has been known to be beneficial for people with autism, memory deficiency and dementia. The possible memory-boosting effects of DMAE may help with the ordinary memory lapses that occur with normal aging. People who have tried DMAE report better memory (especially short-term memory), as well as improved concentration, focus, mental clarity, and sleep.*
LECI-PS can reverse normal age-related memory loss that occurs while performing certain basic tasks of everyday life. Most striking is the effect of Leci-PS on our ability to learn and remember names: an age-related reversal of memory loss was observed that was the equivalent of almost 14 years (Crook, 1998). PS benefits brain functions not only in the elderly, it also reduces the negative effects of mental stress in young healthy individuals and benefits a person's mood. As shown in numerous studies, PS is also an effective supplement for combating exercise-induced stress and preventing the physical deterioration accompanying too much exercise (i.e., overtraining).*
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: We have maintained since the publication of the GISSI trial in which fish oil capsules reduced the risk of sudden death by 45% in patients with heart disease that the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA should be a staple of any full spectrum supplement. That is why two capsules of fish oil have been in our packs since 1997. Now the American Heart Association has for the first time recommended a dietary supplement and it is fish oil capsules. They recommend 360 mg a day of DHA, the most potent form of omega-3 fatty acids. Our premium packs provide 500 mg of DHA in half of the volume of fish oil as most capsules. This means that there are fewer of the other potentially damaging fatty acids (such as arachadonic acid) that can be found in the other 500 mg of a typical less concentrated fish oil capsule. In addition, our capsules are enteric coated, which virtually eliminates fish odor.
