Stress Helper Ingredients
Stress Helper contains the following ingredients: Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Pantethine, Carnosine, Silica, Magnesium Stearate, and Cellulose capsule.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is part of the amino-acid class of compounds, which are building blocks of proteins and which are involved in numerous processes throughout the body. This particular chemical is needed to transform fat into energy. The compound is broken down into carnitine, which is the actual transporter of fatty acids in the mitochondria (where they are transformed into energy). ALCAR is the acetylated derivate of L-carnitine, a common substance in dietary supplements. It has been stated that ALCAR supplements are more effective than L-carnitine based products due to an increased bioavailability of the acetylated form. The chemical is able to cross the blood brain barrier where it acts as a potent antioxidant, providing an effective defense against oxidative stress damage. ALCAR is a popular ingredient of brain and memory supplements, used to treat and prevent age related memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, depression symptoms, thinking problems of various causes (Lyme disease, alcoholism), poor circulation in the brain, and nerve pain. Side effects of Acetyl-L-Carnitine supplements were reported in the form of fishy odor, digestive discomfort, and sleeping problems.
Carnosine is a chemical used particularly for its rejuvenating effect on certain enzymes and proteins and neuroprotective effects on the brain cells, eyes and nerves. It is also believed to possess important antioxidant benefits, making it an important structure of the body’s defense against free radicals. This substance is also believed to provide important benefits to the skin (prevention of wrinkles, dryness, skin sagging, etc.) by maintaining its structural integrity and preventing damage to collagen fibers and fibroblasts. Safety information about the use of this substance is not available for consulting.
