Documents relevant to this claim


Solal distributed a marketing booklet/flyer in 2010 (precise date unknown) which made approximately 280 health claims including anti-aging. In particular, Solal claimed that a product called Acetyl-L-Carnitine:

  • Increases brain carnitine levels.

  • Exerts antioxidant effects in brain.

  • Helps prevent age-related memory decline.

  • Assists with chronic fatigue.

Marcus Low of the Treatment Action Campaign has lodged a complaint against Solal with ASASA. At the time of last updating this entry in the Quackbase we are still awaiting a final ruling on this matter. Solal's logo, website and Facebook page state SOLAL Technologies - Antiaging Specialists. Their website claims the following products counteract aging:

  • The Anti-Aging Pill™

  • Stress Damage Control™

  • Advanced Cellular™ Anti-Aging Antioxidant (or Super Nutrient Antioxidant or ACES Plus™)

  • Carnosine

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid (Dual R-form)(or Alpha Lipoic Acid)

  • Ubiquinol Co-Q10 (or Co-Enzyme Q10)

Harris Steinman has written a demolition of Solal's anti-aging claims. His article exposes just how sloppy this company's research is.
