NAC & ALA support mitochondrial function as well as phase 2 antioxidant enzyme up-regulation.


    • Nutrients - amino acids, antioxidants
    • Blood Sugar - diabetes, weight
    • Longevity - detoxification

      Feature Ingredients

      • NAC and ALA have direct antioxidant action, and also enhance the synthesis and regeneration of glutathione, the key cellular antioxidant
      • Improves endothelial function and also supports nitric oxide synthesis Reduce hyperglycemia associated damage

              N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) are highly complementary nutrients, critical to cellular function and protection, and management of hyperglycemia associated damage.

              • NAC drives the synthesis of the cellular antioxidant glutathione, often depleted in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and those with increased oxidative stress.1,2 Additionally, glutathione is needed for the detoxification of many persistent organic pollutants, which have emerged as powerful contributors to diabetes and the metabolic syndrome.3 Clinical trials have shown that NAC restores intraplatelet glutathione levels among diabetics, a marker of atherothrombotic risk, and reduces homocysteine and improves endothelial function in coronary artery disease.4,5,6
              • ALA, in turn, recycles antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C and glutathione, and is a cofactor for several mitochondrial enzymes as well as glutathione reductase.7 It improves glycemic control and insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetics, endothelial function among individuals with impaired glucose tolerance, and enhances weight loss among obese subjects.8,9,10 It has a well-recognized benefit for the prevention and treatment of peripheral neuropathy among diabetics, improving both symptoms and objective markers of disease, such as nerve conduction velocity.11,12 Its antioxidant and neuroprotective effects may also provide protection against neurodegeneration, and a range of oxidant-associated diseases.13,14

                  Bioclinic Naturals Advantage

                  Highly bioavailable ingredients for optimal absorption.


                  Do not use if you are hypersensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients. Do not use this product if you are taking antibiotics or nitroglycerin. Avoid use with acetylcysteine allergy. 


                  Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking any medications, or if you have any pre-existing condition including but not limited to pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetes, kidney stones and use caution in individuals with asthma.  Discontinue this product 2 weeks prior to surgery.

                  ALA was shown to prevent drug-induced weight gain associated with atypical antipsychotics without reducing drug efficacy.15 Caution should be used with anti-diabetes medications, as they may have additive hypoglycemic effects. Long term use may warrant low dose copper and/or thiamine supplementation. Although NAC may reduce nitroglycerin tolerance and improve its efficacy for unstable angina, severe headaches and hypotension may occur. NAC may also reduce the capacity of activated charcoal to absorb acetaminophen.

                  Side Effect Risks

                  Discontinue use and consult a healthcare practitioner if symptoms persist, worsen or you develop any reactions which may include: allergy or intolerance.  Keep out of reach of children. Sealed for your protection. Do not use if seal is broken. For freshness, store in a cool, dry place.
