A compound of acetyl-L-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid retards cellular aging -- the stuff doesn't make you any younger but, in tests with laboratory rats, appears to slow the rate of aging. The Food and Drug Administration has yet to rule on the efficacy of the substance, but claims made on its behalf are backed by serious medical research; the compound is sold under the zoomy trade name Juvenon. Considering how obsessed Americans are with the illusion of youth, it seems mildly puzzling Juvenon has not become popular. Maybe the reason is the formula results from hard-science research, rather than claims of a mysterious miracle plant found deep in the Amazon rain forest.
