Alpha-lipoic acid is one of the most powerful antioxidants ever discovered. It is a vitamin-like sulfur-containing compound that is synthesized naturally in the human body. Sometimes it is referred to as alpha-lipoate‚ thioctic acid‚ or just lipoic acid. One of its most important characteristics is that it is both fat-soluble and water-soluble. This enables it to provide antioxidant protection in a much wider range of physiological environments throughout the body‚ which has resulted in some scientists referring to alpha-lipoic acid as the "universal" antioxidant. In the body‚ alpha-lipoic acid is converted to dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA)‚ which also functions as a strong antioxidant. Lipoic acid is part of two enzyme systems: PDH (pyruvate dehydrogenase) and alphaketoglutarate dehydrogenase. These enzymes are part of the Krebs cycle and are essential in the production of energy.
