Amino acid supplements are especially vital for athletes because they support muscle building, and people over 50 as generally people over 50 lose muscle mass. They form proteins which are the building blocks of health and Amino acid supplements can help ensure you have the amino acids you need for cell growth, tissue repair and body functions.

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

HELP NEUTRALIZE THE CHEMICAL BY-PRODUCTS OF SMOKING
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) has been extensively researched for its antioxidant properties, particularly in its potential to neutralize the chemical by-products of smoking. Its ease of conversion to both extracellular and intracellular glutathione, coupled with its stability and long half-life in the body, makes it an economical and powerful antioxidant. N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC)—a derivative of the amino acid L-cysteine—forms the all-natural foundation of any daily lung support routine. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) can also help support the integrity of intestinal mucosal cells.*

Acetyl-L-Carnitine
Supercharge mental performance & prevent age-related cognitive decline
Are you worried about losing your memory and cognition as you age? Perhaps worried about memory and cognition in someone who drinks too much alcohol? Supplementing with acetyl-l-carnitine has been shown to diminish memory loss and cognitive impairment associated with aging and it appears to help alcoholics, too. Acetyl-l-carnitine, often called ALC, has been shown to preserve brain health. It promotes healthy brain functioning and provides oxidative support, thereby reducing oxidative damage. It also supports healthy nerve function throughout the body, particularly associated with poor blood sugar control and/or induced by medications.
