R-Alpha lipoic acid and Acetyl-L-Carnitine Combination Package by Ergomax
This combination package with R-alpha lipoic acid or R-alpha lipoic acid and acetyl-L-carnitine offers powerful support to the energy metabolism inside the body cells. The R-alpha lipoic acid component of this product contains a combination of pure R-alpha lipoic acid and biotin. R-alpha lipoic acid is a fatty acid that occurs naturally in every cell of the human body. Biotin, or vitamin B8, is a B vitamin and enjoys various health claims.
Acetyl-L-carnitine (also called ALCAR) is the acetylated form of the amino acid L-carnitine. L-carnitine is also known as vitamin Bt. It occurs naturally in the human body. All ingredients combined form a powerful synergy.

R-alpha lipoic acid: fatty acid and antioxidant
R-alpha lipoic acid is a natural compound first isolated in 1951. It was initially thought to be a B vitamin, but it later turned out to be a sulfur-containing fatty acid and antioxidant. As a nutrient, it has powerful and unique features. The antioxidant is both water- and fat-soluble. This property makes R-alpha lipoic acid available to almost all body systems.
Versatile R-alpha lipoic acid
R-alpha lipoic acid is a molecular multitasker capable of performing a wide range of functions. Because the body can synthesize small amounts itself, it is considered a condition-specific nutrient. This means that adequate intake through food or dietary supplements is essential. R-alpha lipoic acid is found in small amounts in food, specifically organ meats.
Acetyl-L-carnitine: semi-essential amino acid
Different forms exist of the amino acid L-carnitine. Acetyl-L-carnitine (also called ALCAR) is the acetylated form. L-carnitine plays an important role in the energy metabolism of bodily cells. It occurs naturally throughout the human body. As we age, however, acetyl-L-carnitine levels are known to drop.
Why is acetyl-L-carnitine supplementation eligible?
L-carnitine is a semi-essential amino acid. Our body itself can synthesize small amounts, provided that the precursors (two essential amino acids, lysine and methionine) and the required cofactors (vitamins C, B3, B6 and iron) are available. L-carnitine can then be converted, as needed, into acetyl-L-carnitine, and vice versa. For the production of acetyl-L-carnitine we depend on food sources such as red meat and dairy products. Required is either an adequate supply of these nutrients or supplementation with acetyl-L-carnitine.
L-carnitine and acetyl groups
In the body, in the cells more precisely, acetyl-L-carnitine molecules are split into two components: L-carnitine molecules and acetyl groups. L-carnitine molecules contribute to an efficient energy metabolism in our cells. To this end, acetyl-L-carnitine functions as a donor of acetyl groups within the cell. Acetyl groups are essential for many functions of the cell. For example, they play a key role in various metabolic processes and the production of neurotransmitters, including acetylcholine.
Acetyl-L-carnitine is widely applicable
In sum, acetyl-L-carnitine is an essential supplement for many important processes in the body. Supplementation with acetyl-L-carnitine ensures that the body's needs are covered and that L-carnitine does not have to be converted into acetyl-L-carnitine first. Acetyl-L-carnitine supplementation may be particularly suitable for the elderly, individuals with increased or specific needs, athletes, vegans and vegetarians.
R-alpha lipoic acid in microencapsulation
To further optimize the potency of R-alpha lipoic acid and biotin, we opted for microencapsulation of the substances using pea protein.
Microencapsulation is a process whereby active substances are enveloped by extremely small capsules: at the nano level. This new technology is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry to improve the physical properties, stability or bioavailability of products.
Thanks to micro-encapsulation, active substances are effectively delivered to the body. This improves the absorption and effectiveness of this product. The microencapsulation of Ergomax's R-alpha lipoic acid takes place as part of a patented and natural production process in European production facilities. No use is made of high pressure, high temperatures or dangerous chemicals. In short: a choice for quality.
R-alpha lipoic acid versus S-alpha lipoic acid
There are two forms of alpha lipoic acid: the body's own natural R-alpha lipoic acid and the synthetic variant called S-alpha lipoic acid. Dietary supplements can contain either form, or a mixture of both. Our formula contains only the active, natural, body's own, right-turning form: R-alpha Lipoic Acid.
Choosing Ergomax is choosing quality, expert advice and proven effects. Ergomax offers strictly natural food supplements. In our view, to pursue optimal health should be within anyone’s reach. To this end we are incessantly on the lookout for new and unique compounds and products with proven effects. Our product range also includes many unique niche products. All of our products have been carefully selected, assessed and tested. This applies to Ergomax's own product line especially. Products are processed as little as possible and, thus, are as natural as possible. Mother Nature always knows better, after all.
