Powerful antioxidant to help protect the body from free radical damage.
What is alpha lipoic acid?
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a natural compound that functions as a co-factor in vital, energy-producing reactions. The body produces very little ALA on its own, and it is difficult to obtain sufficient quantities from diet.
ALA is well known as a powerful antioxidant. It has been called a “universal antioxidant” because it is effective in water-based substances such as blood, while its reduced metabolite, dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), is effective in fatty tissues and membranes.
How does alpha lipoic acid support health?
May promote cardiovascular health by protecting against free radical damage.
Enhances the antioxidant activity of vitamins C and E and coenzyme Q10.
May increase levels of glutathione, the body’s most important antioxidant.
