Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is one of the most versatile antioxidants available. ALA's unique chemical properties allow it to support blood sugar balance already within normal levels and increase intracellular glutathione levels.
- Provides Fat-Soluble and Water-Soluble Antioxidant Protection
- Protects the Neurovascular System from Free Radical Damage
- Supports Blood Sugar Balance Already Within Normal Levels
- Regenerates Vitamins C and E
- Increases Intracellular Glutathione Levels
With its potent antioxidant properties, research has shown ALA strongly supports the neurovascular system, as well as overall circulatory and blood vessel health. As a short-chain fatty acid, ALA can both be absorbed by fatty tissues and maintain its solubility in water, allowing it to be easily excreted from the body when not needed. In addition, orally supplemented ALA readily crosses the blood-brain barrier after absorption in the small intestine. It then undergoes distribution via systemic circulation. Once inside the tissues, ALA can exert its antioxidant benefits inside and outside the cells, including the cellular powerhouse, the mitochondria, which functions as a coenzyme in several different biochemical pathways. ALA also serves as a sulfur donor, which allows it to support detoxification pathways that require this nutrient.
Supportive of various health-related issues, ALA recharges vitamin E, vitamin C, glutathione, and CoQ10, and directly quenches reactive oxygen species (ROS). Since it has water-soluble, fat-soluble, and sulfhydryl properties, it can be utilized by many different bodily tissues in a variety of ways. Its unique chemical properties allow ALA to support blood sugar balance already within normal levels. This formulation of Lipoic Acid contains 300 mg of ALA and 300 mcg of biotin to protect against loss of biotin as a result of the competition between the two.
