Juvenon: The Acetyl-l Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid based antioxidant supplement.
Juvenon is currently marketed as a “cellular health support formula”. It is a unique antioxidant supplement in that it targets the mitochondria within the human body’s cells, rather than the body as a whole. This is a completely different marketing strategy and approach than the majority of other antioxidant supplements manufacturers.
In essence our mitochondria are our cell’s energy or fuel cells. Our cells, and their subsequent mitochondria productivity (as do all complex processes taking place within the human body), decline with age. And, just as other antioxidant supplements also try to do, Juvenon takes direct aim at the aging process hoping to reserve, repair, and restore cellular and physical health from within. This supplement has been featured at the prominent Oxygen conference, where medical doctors and health specialists lecture about a variety of anti aging topics. According to the their home website, the herbal compounds contained in Juvenon purportedly (based on independent laboratory study) help to maintain the mitochondrial function of aging cells by;
- Enhancing anti oxidative protection,
- Maintaining the mitochondrial membrane potential,
- Promoting cellular health, and
- Promoting metabolism and overall cell function.

The science behind the supplement, Juvenon:
Acetyl-l Carnitine: The amino acid carnitine and acetyl-l carnitine are significant in key physiological processes. They shuttle nutrients (fatty acids, sugars, and acetyl groups) into our cells and mitochondria for energy production. Acetyl-l Carnitine is also for the production of key brain chemicals.
Alpha Lipoic Acid: This natural compound is an extremely potent antioxidant. Alpha Lipoic Acid also has the unique ability of regulating blood sugar levels. This makes it an appealing compound for diabetes and those struggling with glucose regulation. Alpha Lipoic acid may help to regenerate other antioxidants in the body and produce an abundant amount of glutathione when consumed. Glutathione is a substance that helps our body rid itself of toxins while aiding in reducing internal and external free radical damage.
Juvenon offers a complete satisfaction and return guarantee if you do not see results from the product. Additionally, there are links to ongoing clinical trials that include Juvenon in several test subjects, as well as guidance on their site to past studies. Users can also read more about mitochondria, mitochondrial damage and aging too. You can also view videos of several doctors describing in their own terms what makes Juvenon such a unique antioxidant supplement.
Finally, just by visiting the site, anyone may subscribe to a monthly news letter that sends information about aging, health, and all things wellness. With the extensive research and inclusion of two wonderful ingredients (Aceytl-l Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid), Juvenon seems like a worth while addition to any aging adult’s vitamin chest. However, do your research and what is best for your current age and lifestyle.
