LifeSpan EXTENSION COMPLEX™
What is Lifespan Complex?
Supplement Spot has combined 3 ingredients Acetyl L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Bioperine, to create Lifespan Complex, one of our best sellers!
These ingredients combined work synergistically to improve energy and wellness. The 3 active ingredients are generally sold separately and expensive when purchased apart, buying Lifespan Complex will reduce the cost of taking these 3 amazing life-enhancing supplements.
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC)
Aging occurs when the energy producing components of the cell deteriorate, resulting in reduced cellular metabolic activity, the accumulation of cellular debris, and the eventual death of the cell.
Acetyl L-Carnitine, an amino acid, helps maintain youthful cellular energy and protect cell health.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is the acetylated ester of the amino acid L-Carnitine. 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 by the mitochondria of the cell. *
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid was first discovered in the 1950s. It is an enzyme found in the mitochondria, the energy powerhouses of human cells. Scientists in the late 1980s discovered that it possessed powerful antioxidant properties. In addition, it recycles other antioxidants, specifically Vitamin C and Vitamin E, enhancing their potency.
Unlike other antioxidants, it has the unique ability to be active in both water and fat compartments in the body. Thus, Alpha Lipoic Acid is sometimes referred to as a "universal antioxidant" and is more effective in neutralizing free radicals than other antioxidants. It also plays an important role in the process that recycles glutathione, which is another major antioxidant in the body. Finally, it assists B vitamins in converting carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy for the body. *
Here is a summary of Alpha Lipoic Acid benefits:*
- ALA acts as a powerful antioxidant.
- ALA supports healthy glucose metabolism.
- ALA may support healthy energy levels.
- ALA assists enzymes in conversion of food to energy.
- ALA helps support healthy liver function.
- ALA may support healthy immune function.
- ALA may support healthy eyesight
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that works with other nutrients such as vitamins C & E and gluththione to defend against excessive free radicals. It is called a universal antioxidant because it is soluble in both water and lipid based tissue. *
Alpha Lipoic Acid is used by the body to metabolize food and for energy production. ALA is also an antioxidant that may prevent free-radical damage.*
Although there have been hundreds of studies over the last 40 years revealing how Alpha Lipoic Acid energizes metabolism, the new excitement about this vitamin-like substance can be seen in the countless recent studies focusing on how it improves the physique, combats free radicals and protects our genetic material.*
The metabolic process that generates energy at the cellular level in our body is called thermogenesis. While thermogenesis has typically been categorized as a key factor in weight loss, to confine the scope of its function to this aspect alone is incomplete. Thermogenesis plays an integral role in our body's ability to properly utilize the daily foods and nutrients we take in. It sets in motion the mechanisms that lead to digestion and subsequent gastrointestinal absorption.* Piperine, in the patented form of Bioperine™, enhances the body's natural thermogenic activity - hence the term Thermonutrient™.
This enhancement may be explained as a means of increasing thermal energy sufficient to "power up" mechanisms related to thermogenesis. This in turn results in increased metabolic processes that create a "demand" for "supply" of a broad range of nutrients that contribute to metabolism, i.e. vitamins, minerals, herbals, amino acids, etc. It is as if Bioperine™ activates a metabolic paddle wheel of sorts that selectively provides a more efficient mode of nutrient transportation into the blood. Based on available research, piperine is unique in its thermonutrient activity.*
Bioperine™ is the only source of piperine to obtain patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. Bioperine™ is also the only source of piperine to undergo clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use.
