Dr's Best Alpha Lipoic Acid 600mg

Alpha Lipoic Acid is one of the natural antioxidants, nutrients that can protect the cells from free radical attack. Alpha Lipoic Acid supplements can assist the cells in converting glucose into useful energy, promote natural anti-inflammatory defences, support effective detoxification, and stabilise blood sugar levels. ALA is also known as the Universal Antioxidant since it is soluble in fat and water.

Alpha Lipoic Acid as one of the most powerful antioxidants can help protect the billions of cells in the body from oxidative stress which may cause damage. Oxidative damage to cells has been implicated to the side effects of aging, affecting the nervous, cardiovascular, and immune systems, as well as the eyes and skin. Oxidative stress is  one the reasons why older people can have poor memory, fluctuating blood pressure, above normal glucose and cholesterol levels, vision problems, skin wrinkles and fine lines, and other health problems related to aging. Alpha Lipoic Acid can benefit other antioxidants by participating in their recycling of other premier antioxidants. ALA naturally supports healthy levels of glutathione, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E in the body. By assisting the body to utilise effectively, Alpha Lipoic acid capsules and pills may normalise serum glucose levels. It may be helpful in neutralising the harmful effects of extremely high or low glucose levels to the eyes, kidneys, skin, blood vessels and other organs. Antioxidants like Alpha Lipoic Acid can prevent the oxidation of the Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) which can develop into arterial plaques that disrupt normal blood flow. Another important Alpha Lipoic Acid benefit is that it may counteract the harmful effects of stress in the body.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), also known as thioctic or lipoic acid is a vitamin-like nutrient that is naturally occurring in the body. ALA exists in two forms, the R form or R-(+)-Lipoic Acid (RLA), and the S form or S-(-) –Lipoic Acid. The major organ that produces ALA is the liver, and small amounts are manufactured in other tissues where it participates in different enzymatic reactions. Alpha Lipoic Acid can benefit the body through its powerful antioxidant properties. Antioxidants protect important cellular structures and functions from free radicals, the byproducts oxidative processes in the body that occurs with age. They  can render these free radicals harmless by donating oxygen molecules or acquiring excess oxygen molecules so they become stable. Free radical damage is thought to be the major contributor to the harmful signs of aging that affects the nervous, immune, and cardiovascular systems. ALA is both soluble in fat and water, that’s why it’s, called the universal antioxidant and also why, it is able to quickly deliver antioxidant protection to membranes.
