Description

Alpha-Lipoic acid is potent antioxidant and a critical cofactor for many enzyme complexes, which is crucial to mitochondrial function. However, ALA is fat soluble, making it different than its antioxidant cohorts, allowing it to get into different tissues to remove free radicals. Most other antioxidants (ie Vitamins C and E) are not fat soluble.

ALA also helps turn glucose into fuel for the body (improving insulin sensitivity), making it beneficial to prevent diabetes and its complications, but due to the fact that it can lower blood sugar, please use with caution if you currently have diabetes. 

In terms of heart health, because it is an antioxidant, and has metal chelating abilities, it can inhibit endothelial activation, slowing arterial plaque buildup and negative cardiovascular events.

Uses

Helps improve insulin sensitivity, which helps reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome (diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, high cholesterol). Also supports nerve health, especially for those who already have diabetes. Can also help prevent memory loss and cognitive decline, while also boosting glutathione (your master antioxidant) and supporting eye health. 

Directions

Take one capsule per day.
