Lipoic Acid Description
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.*
