About ALC Arginate:
*Precursors of carnitine and acetyl-l-carnitine, including the amino acid arginine, may help to enhance the metabolic activities of these compounds. Acetyl-l-carnitine and arginine play roles in healthy male reproductive function, including antioxidant protection. Acetyl-l-carnitine is present in human sperm and seminal fluid and plays an important part in energy metabolism, which may support healthy sperm motility and spermatogenesis, or sperm production.
Some but not all research involving l-arginine supplementation for sperm motility has produced positive results. As a nitric oxide precursor, l-arginine may support healthy erectile function in some men. In addition, an acetyl-l-carnitine arginine complex supported healthy neuron viability in a cellular in vitro experiment. In the same study, the acetyl-l-carnitine arginine complex was able to help maintain calcium homeostasis in nervous system cells stimulated with glutamate, preserving healthy cerebellar cell function.
In a separate study, acetyl-l-carnitine arginine demonstrated potential support for maintaining healthy central nervous system function by promoting healthy neurite function. Neurites are the hair like projections of neurons, or nervous system cells, responsible for proper signal transmission. The acetyl group from acetyl-l-carnitine (ALC) is also responsible for production of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter for optimal mental functioning.
ALC arginate is an innovative acetyl-l-carnitine arginate complex providing potential support for male reproductive health and healthy cognitive function.
