Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a strong antioxidant that can protect you from degenerative diseases and early aging.

We encounter free radicals every day, with every breath we take. Scientists estimate that the DNA in each cell takes about 10,000 free radical “hits” per day – potential for a lot of cell damage. Exposure to cigarette smoke, polluted air, car exhaust, alcohol, even sunshine, increases the oxidative stress on our cells and it shows. Free radical damage shows up as wrinkles, cataracts, even heart disease and cancer. So it makes good sense to increase our antioxidant protection.

When antioxidants give up their electrons to quench a free radical, they die. Unless, of course, something comes along that recharges them. Alpha-lipoic acid extends the biochemical life of other antioxidants by restoring their missing electrons, allowing them to continue to be effective. Vitamins C and glutathione are directly recycled by alpha-lipoic acid, while vitamin E is indirectly recycled.

Alpha-lipoic acid helps to convert the food we eat into energy. Much of this action goes on in the mitochondria of the cells. It is also essential to blood sugar control, hastening the body’s breakdown of sugar. With a key role in several important enzyme systems, alpha-lipoic acid has therapeutic potential in conditions such as diabetes, where the body cannot properly metabolize food into energy.

Alpha-lipoic acid has a number of things going for it: it is a very small molecule, efficiently absorbed, and easily crosses cell membranes. Unlike vitamin E which is primarily fat-soluble and vitamin C which is water-soluble, alpha-lipoic acid is is both fat- and water-soluble. This allows it to bind with free radicals in a liver that's clogged with fat deposits. Plus it prevents triglyceride build-ups in the liver, protects the liver from damage caused by a fatty meal, and can even help with weight control.

Alpha-lipoic acid is involved in energy production. Alpha-lipoic acid works together with vitamin E and vitamin C to protect the entire cell from oxidative stress. As an antioxidant it is a very small molecule that is efficiently absorbed and easily crosses cell membranes. Alpha-lipoic acid is both fat- and water-soluble, so it can quench free radicals both inside and outside the cell. It also directly recycles vitamins C and glutathione and indirectly recycles vitamin E.

Although the body does make alpha-lipoic acid, supplementation is advised because the body uses the available alpha-lipoic acid for metabolic function with very little left over for antioxidant function.

I started taking Alpha-Lipoic Acid for pre-diabetic symptoms I was having (tingling in my hands/feet, blood sugar too high). Within 3 months of taking it my blood sugar was back to normal and the tingling was gone. This is a great product! Also helped me with energy levels and overall good health.

I think antioxidants are very necessary in the world we live in. I live in a very busy, congested city and enjoy being outdoors. Alpha-lipoic is a wonderful antioxidant that helps my body stay healthy and deal with inner city fumes and congestion. I take Alpha-Lipoic as part of my daily supplements.
