Why buy this?

There is considerable evidence that Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) plus Alpha Lipoic Acid has beneficial effects on sustaining health while aging.  ALC is an FDA approved drug but sold as a nutritional supplement (allowing for what is probably a considerably lower price than if sold as a prescription drug). There is one study suggesting if ACL is taken early in the development of Alzheimer’s disease that it might slow the development of the disease. There are cautions worthy of note: those with a history of seizures, bipolar disorders, and under-active thyroid should avoid ACL-use.
