Alpha Lipoic Acid
A Powerful Antioxidant!
Scientists discovered the importance of alpha lipoic acid in the 1950’s and recognized it as an antioxidant in 1988. Alpha lipoic acid is a fatty acid found naturally inside every cell in the body. It is needed by the body to produce the energy for our body’s normal functions. Alpha lipoic acid converts glucose (blood sugar) into energy.
Alpha lipoic acid is a substance that neutralizes potentially harmful chemicals called free radicals. What makes alpha lipoic acid unique is that it functions in water and fat, unlike the more common antioxidants vitamins C and E. Alpha lipoic acid appears to be able to recycle such antioxidants as vitamin C and glutathione after they have been depleted. Glutathione is an important antioxidant that helps the body eliminate potentially harmful substances. Alpha lipoic acid increases the formation of glutathione.
