Deal of the Week: Colorado Nutrition’s Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

Alpha Lipoic Acid was mentioned in Readers Digest article “New Pill That Stops Aging.”

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that is soluble in both fat and water. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is also an important component in the energy production process in the cells. Alpha-lipoic acid is a coenzyme that assists in the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-coA. Acetyl-coA is the beginning point for the Krebs cycle, one of the body’s main energy production cycles, which produces the high-energy molecule ATP. Alpha-lipoic acid supports the immune system and also supports healthy liver function.

Alpha Lipoic Acid and Diabetes

Alpha Lipoic Acid is prescribed in Germany for adult onset of diabetes. There it has been shown to help for the following reasons:

*Recommended supplementation for diabetic neuropathy is 800mg/day

Alpha Lipoic Acid Helps to preserve brain function in aging adults.
Results from animal studies indicate that alpha-lipoic acid may improve long-term memory. Much remains to be learned about whether this occurs in humans, but it may be worth trying this powerful antioxidant when a disease such as Alzheimer’s starts to erode memory. In addition, alpha-lipoic acid holds promise for preserving brain cells following a stroke or other type of trauma that restricts blood flow to the brain.

Food Sources of Alpha Lipoic Acid include:

  • Red meats and other Organ Meats such as Heart and Kidney
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Yeast (Particuarly Brewer’s Yeast)

Deal of the Day: Glucosamine & Chondroitin

CN-Glucosamine-and-Chondroitin-240Caps
Glucosamine & Chondroitin
240 Caps
from Colorado Nutrition
(Retail: $49.95)
Our Price: $12.76

Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin occur naturally in the body and act as building blocks for the functioning of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been studied and have been found to be critical nutrients that assist in supporting flexibility, comfort and range of motion.

Glucosamine: Glucosamine is one of the major components involved with the formation of cartilage (critical lubricants and shock absorbers necessary to maintain and restore healthy joint performance). Glucosamine facilitates the renewal of cartilage and helps keep cartilage lubricated to maintain its naturally slippery texture. These mechanisms of action improve the structure of joints.

Chondroitin: Chondroitin supports existing cartilage by promoting the quality of the synovial fluid — it attracts fluid to act as a spongy shock absorber for the joints. It works together with Glucosamine to promote the healthy flow of water and nutrients into cartilage producing cells.

When taken together, Glucosamine and Chondroitin work naturally with your body to promote healthy, flexible joints. This process of revitalizing healthy joints takes time and depends on your specific individual nutritional requirements. With daily continued use, you should look forward to experiencing the benefits of taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin.

L-Carnitine Fumarate
500 mg 120 Vcaps
from Colorado Nutrition
(Retail: $39.99)
Our Price: $10.36

L-Carnitine Fumarate is an amino acid(like) nutrient that is found naturally in the body and in red meat. It plays a major role in the process of burning fat for energy. This nutrient is a great weight loss aid as it can help to increase muscle strength, energy and increase fat burning efficiency. L-Carnitine can also help you achieve more energy, increase immune function, enhance and protect your mental faculties, and lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

L-Carnitine Fumarate is the most stable and bio-available carnitine salt. Contains 58.5% of active principle. Because fumarate is naturally present in the Krebs cycle it optimizes the action of L-carnitine. Recent studies have shown that fumaric acid increases energy through the anaplerotic effect and is beneficial for cardiac conditions.

When L-Carnitine Fumarate is taken in supplemental form, it can increase energy, burn fat, improve the functioning of the heart and liver (and studies suggest, even increase sperm quality!) Supplementation of this essential nutrient is a good idea for anyone looking to lose weight and improve muscle tone and strength.
