Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), also known as thioctic acid, has gained considerable attention as an antioxidant. ALA combats particularly nasty free radicals such as superoxide radicals, hydroxyl radicals, hypochlorous acid, peroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen, thereby reducing oxidative stress. ALA is a small molecule, soluble in both water and fat. This allows it to work both inside the cell and at the membrane level, making ALA a particularly valuable antioxidant.
• ALA is an antioxidant which protects against the oxidative damage caused by some of the nastiest free radicals.
• ALA is a metabolic antioxidant that recycles other antioxidants; thereby providing double-duty out of the other antioxidants.
• ALA works synergistically with other antioxidants, thereby providing greater protection against free radical damage.
• ALA aids in the metabolism of glucose which helps promote energy production.
*Disclaimer: Because of ALAs relationship to mercury we highly recommend reading literature by Andrew Hall Cutler before using any product containing ALA.
