Alpha lipoic acid molecule structure

Alpha Lipoic Acid Supplement - Powerful Antioxidant to Fight Free Radicals

Alpha lipoic acid is unique in neutralizing around six types of particularly damaging free radicals. It's also a chelator of several toxic metals. It's used preventatively and therapeutically in a number of diseases, in particular, the complications of diabetes.

What are the benefits associated with Alpha Lipoic Acid?

Alpha Lipoic Acid is called the universal antioxidant because:

  • It's active in aqueous and lipid regions (it's both water-soluble and fat-soluble).
  • It recycles vitamin C, vitamin E, Coenzyme Q10 and Glutathione after their use by the body and therefore significantly increases their effectiveness.
  • It is rapidly converted to its metabolite dihydrolipoic acid in most tissues and in this form, protects against free radicals.
