The More Bio-available Antioxidant
Alpha-lipoic acid has antioxidant activity and can scavenge free radicals both intra- and extra-cellularly. It is a part-coenzyme that is involved in carbohydrate metabolism, and in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It may also help to suppress vascular inflammation. Alpha-lipoic acid can regenerate endogenous antioxidants, such as vitamin E, vitamin C, and glutathione, to help prevent oxidative damage.
- Antioxidant & Free Radical Neutralizer
- Support For Pancreatic Function & Normal Blood Sugar Balance
- Support For Peripheral Nerve & Endrocrine Function
- Improves Effectiveness Of Many Other Ingredients
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a ‘network’ antioxidant that provides support for healthy blood sugar levels, peripheral nerves, digestion, glandular activity, and the liver. In addition to neutralising free radicals, ALA has been studied for its potential abilities in the repair of oxidative damage, regeneration of other antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, and chelation of excess metals.
Alpha Lipoic Acid R™ is significantly more bio-available than the ‘free acid’ form of R-Lipoic Acid (RLA). In a preliminary trial, the maximum plasma concentration was 40 times higher than that of unstabilized RLA.
