SKU: ONE631-P107190

Provides whole-body, multi-functional antioxidant activity to support healthy, well-functioning cells

  • Provides neuro-protection
  • Coenzyme for glucose uptake and utilization
  • Promotes healthy vascular function
  • Supports regeneration of vitamins C and E
  • Promotes healthy endothelial function
  • Supports healthy intracellular glutathione levels

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a fat- and water-soluble nutrient with antioxidant activity. It provides protection both inside and outside the cell. ALA has the ability to regenerate and extend the biochemical lifetime of other antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, as well as glutathione and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). As such, it plays a role in fighting oxidative stress and free radical formation. As a coenzyme, ALA is needed to break down glucose for energy metabolism.

This versatile nutrient has been shown to support vascular and connective tissue health, protect cell structures, support the nervous system, help maintain healthy liver function and maintain cholesterol and blood glucose levels within normal ranges.

Alpha lipoic acid can be made in the body but production declines with age. ALA supports healthy aging, helping to neutralize free radicals before they can cause damage to the elastin and collagen in the skin that can be linked to signs of aging and wrinkles. ALA is also provides support for althletes by producing energy in muscles and directing calories into energy production.

Research

  • More than a dozen clinical trials have studied the role of alpha lipoid acid in maintaining healthy nerve function. Findings demonstrate its neuroprotective function, believed to be due to ALAs ability to modulate nitric oxide metabolite activity and to promote healthy microcirculation.
