- The evolution of technological research at the service of the best formula for glycemic control
Improved formulation, with “Time Tealesed” effect thanks to the presence of DRcaps® capsules. The newStrength Carnitine Extreme represents an ideal formulation for those who want to control glycemic fluctuations during the day; desirable situation in the periods of definition and loss of body fat.
Strength Carnitine Extreme is the first product that simultaneously contains:
- 1 g Acetyl Carnitine
- 400 mg Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
- 200 mg Berberine
- 15 mg Zinc
- 200 mcg Chromium Picolinate
The formulation of Strength Carnitine Extremehas been designed to offer all the advantages of the synergy between the five molecules present and to offer at the same time:
- pro-energetic action
- optimization of lipid metabolism
- antioxidant action
- action on mental performance
> Acetyl-l-carnitine (ALC) 1000 mg
Acetyl-l-carnitine (ALC) plays multiple roles in cellular functions:
- increase in metabolic efficiency in the use of lipids
- increase in the possibility of consuming body fat during physical activity
- optimization of natural testosterone production
- it has anti-catabolic properties
- increased resistance to fatigue in athletes subjected to prolonged efforts
- decrease in the formation of free radicals during exercise
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) 400 mg
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a key molecule in the cellular energy metabolism of most living beings. ALA acts as a cofactor for numerous enzymes that participate in the process of converting glucose, fatty acids and other energy sources into ATP.
ALA acts as a cofactor for numerous enzymes that participate in the process of converting glucose, fatty acids and other energy sources into ATP. Several studies have shown that ALA deficiency is associated with a reduction in muscle tone and an accumulation of lactic acid.
It is a verypowerful antioxidant with unique properties such as:
- High absorbability
- Versatility, maintaining its activity both in water and in lipids
- Wide spectrum of action against many types of free radicals
- Strengthens and completes the defensive action of other antioxidants
ALA increases the efficiency of insulin and can improve the transport of glucose within cells using pathways independent of those of the insulin itself.
It protects the nerves by limiting the damage caused by free radicals, and also helps them to protect themselves from degeneration due to wear and fatigue. Furthermore, a very important factor for athletes, it improves the speed of nerve communication and optimizes its functionality.
The ALC-ALA combination is therefore a booster for metabolism, nervous and energy health.
Chromium Picolinate 200 mcg
The main function of chromium, a mineral present in very low concentrations in the human body, seems to be related to the metabolism of sugars; in the latter case, the role of chromium seems to intervene with insulin in regulating the use of glucose.
Chromium supplementation can be useful for:
- Sugar control
- Stimulation of the basal metabolism
- Lipid metabolism
A study conducted on obese patients treated with chromium showed an average weight loss of 5 kg after two months of administration, accompanied by a decrease in the desire for sugar, a reduction in appetite and an increase in energy.
Berberine (200 mg)
Berberine has been used positively for controlling cholesterol levels for over 20 years (although its use dates back to ancient Chinese natural medicine), but its action also plays a powerful role in glycemic stability.
Berberine acts on blood glucose levels thanks to its ability to reduce intestinal absorption of the latter. This mechanism occurs through inhibitory effects on some digestion enzymes (α-glucosidase). This inhibition would partially preclude its absorption and facilitate its uptake in the muscle and liver.
The hypoglycemic effects of berberine are linked to: the increase in the expression of GLUT1 and GLUT4 receptors, the increase in cellular AMPK levels and the efficiency of insulin receptors.
Zinc (15 mg)
Zinc in the sports environment is associated with an intervention to support the endogenous production of testosterone but, given this interesting prerogative, Zinc is important to prevent insulin resistance, in fact low levels of this mineral have been associated with the increase of this phenomenon.
It is therefore a basic mineral (together with chromium) to modulate glucose-insulin regulation, zinc appears to be involved in almost all metabolic aspects of insulin, including synthesis, secretion and use.
Low zinc levels can impair the ability of the pancreatic islets to produce and secrete insulin, even in type 2 diabetes.
The future in new technology: Capsugel DR Caps®
One of the problems of all the molecules taken orally, and of those with antioxidant action in particular, is the gastric “dispersion” due to the impact with the acid pH of the stomach.
There is also the risk that the active ingredients only have an acute peak and cannot guarantee their continuous effect in the body for many hours.
Capsugel DR Caps® technology is based on the use of hypromellose (HPMC), a product of plant origin that protects the active ingredients from acid attack and at the same time allows a time relase.
In the case of the components of Srength Carnitine Extreme, this technology is essential so that all the molecules can carry out their neurogenic, antioxidant, glycemic stabilization and pro metabolic action throughout the day.
This Time relase action, combined with the very low gastric dispersion, ensures that even with apparently lower dosages, these molecules have an amplified and optimal effect as their bioavailability obtains a booster compared to other more “traditional” forms of capsules or tablets.
The Capsugel DR Caps® also guarantee the protection of the active ingredients from moisture during product storage, and the gradual release also avoids possible “taste returns” with masking of the taste and odor of ingredients that potentially create bitter or unwelcome flavors.
