About Anti-Fatigue Complex:

Anti-Fatigue Complex is a unique blend of cofactors for mental clarity, energy metabolism, immune support and antioxidant defense to relieve occasional mental and physical fatigue.
Uses For Anti-Fatigue Complex
Cognitive Support: The role of acetyl-l-carnitine in neurotransmitter function accounts for its ability to relieve mental fatigue, promote memory, support mental clarity and promote emotional well-being.
In an exploratory open label, randomized study, acetyl-l-carnitine supplementation demonstrated statistically significant beneficial support for mental fatigue. The antioxidant alpha lipoic acid also promotes cognitive function and nerve health, in part through its free radical scavenging abilities.*
Energy Production: Ashwagandha is highly revered for promoting energy, vitality and immune defense according to traditional use. In animal models of fatigue, it helps stimulate antioxidant defenses.
N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), alpha lipoic acid and selenium also help diminish the impact of oxidative stress in fatigue, in part by supporting glutathione production. Furthermore, they play an important role in mitochondrial function and protection. Carnitine, from acetyl-l-carnitine, is also critical for energy production, acting to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria for beta-oxidation.
Malic acid further promotes energy production by enhancing ATP synthesis, which is essential for proper muscle function. Magnesium plays a key role in cellular energy metabolism.
Nutrients like zinc and vitamin D are additional cofactors that may support individuals experiencing occasional fatigue.*
Potential Side Effects Or Precautions:
In rare cases, acetyl-l-carnitine or alpha lipoic acid have caused gastrointestinal upset or skin rash. N-acetyl-lcysteine has been associated with headache, dry mouth, itching and dizziness. Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women.
