Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is an antioxidant that is naturally manufactured in the human body. ALA has been called the "universal antioxidant" because of its versatility-it helps deactivate an unusually wide array of cell-damaging free radicals in both water and fat environments. * ALA works in conjunction with vitamins C and E and some other antioxidants‚ "recycling" them and making them much more effective. * Beyond its direct antioxidant function‚ ALA helps to boost glutathione levels. * Glutathione possesses its own antioxidant activities and is a critical component in cellular and hepatic detoxification mechanisms. ALA is also necessary for healthy glucose uptake and utilization‚ thereby helping to support healthy carbohydrate metabolism. * In addition‚ because alpha-lipoic acid can pass easily into the brain‚ it has protective effects on brain and nerve tissue.
