Tri Metabolic Control (TMC)
Source of antioxidant(s)/Provides antioxidant(s) that help(s) fight/protect (cell) against/reduce (the oxidative effect of/the oxidative damage caused by/cell damage caused by) free radicals.
TMC combines LOWAT®, featuring clinically studied extracts of the Piper betle leaf and Dolichos biflorus seed, with acetyl-L-carnitine. It provides antioxidants that help protect cells against the oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
Body cells and tissues are threatened continuously by damage caused by toxic free radicals and reactive oxygen species (e.g., peroxides), which are produced during normal oxygen metabolism, by other chemical reactions, and by toxic agents in the environment. Free radicals, once formed, are capable of disrupting metabolic activity and cell structure. When this occurs, additional free radicals are produced, which in turn can result in more extensive damage to cells and tissues.
LOWAT® is a patent-pending ingredient that consists of Piper betle leaf and Dolichos biflorus seed extract, which have been traditionally used in Indian culture. LOWAT has been evaluated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study and was reported to be well-tolerated.
Acetyl-L-carnitine is a naturally occurring metabolite of L-carnitine, and both are present in the diet, particularly in foods of animal origin. Acetyl-L-carnitine can act as an antioxidant, scavenging harmful superoxide radicals. Since superoxide can damage membrane lipids, this may explain acetyl-L-carnitine’s membrane protective properties.
