Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is an antioxidant that is produced naturally in the body. It functions as a co-factor for a number of important enzymes responsible for the conversion of our food to energy (ATP). In nature‚ ALA is found in the leaves of some plants and in red meat. Unlike other antioxidants‚ ALA is both fat and watersoluble‚ easily absorbed‚ and transported across cell membranes.
This unique quality offers protection against free radicals both inside and outside the cell while other antioxidants only provide extra-cellular protection. Recent research has shown ALA to be an efficient free radical scavenger. With its capabilities as a precursor to glutathione (GSH)‚ ALA has shown to support overall health. Lipoic acid has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants like Vitamin E‚ Vitamin C and GSH for further use after they have eradicated free radicals. Numerous clinical trials have shown the benefits of supplementing with ALA for supporting blood glucose metabolism‚ cardiovascular‚ eye and liver health. Individuals with inadequate glucose metabolism often have a serious problem with glycation.
This is caused by higher than normal levels of blood sugar due to low insulin production or insulin resistance. Glycation happens when blood sugar reacts quickly and spontaneously with proteins to form damaging cross-linking. This cross-linking causes severe tissue damage and leads to decreased kidney‚ eye and cardiovascular health. ALA curtails glycation and enhances the transfer of blood sugar into the cells by stimulating insulin activity. One of the more severe complications of high blood glucose is reduced circulation to the lower extremities. Studies show that patients suffering from poor blood glucose metabolism improved significantly when they supplemented with 100 mg of ALA.
Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid:
- Powerful Antioxidant.
- Supports Normal Blood Glucose Metabolism.
- Promotes Detoxification & Eye Health.
