Alpha-Lipoic Acid - A water and lipid soluble antioxidant; supports glucose metabolism and nerve health. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a multifunctional, versatile nutrient that plays a key role in the antioxidant network and the metabolic process.

What Is It?

Alpha lipoic acid is an exceptionally versatile nutrient. Being both water and fat soluble, it is able to function in almost any part of the body. It is a potent antioxidant which enhances the activity of vitamins C and E. It is a multifunctional compound providing protection from free radicals and supporting various metabolic processes. It has been associated with supporting nerve health, cardiovascular function, and glucose metabolism.*

Uses For Alpha Lipoic Acid

Nerve Health: At this time, as many as fifteen clinical trials have examined the role of alpha lipoic acid in maintaining healthy nerve function. The results of these trials have typically demonstrated that alpha lipoic acid administration provides neuroprotection. In part, this may be due to alpha lipoic acidís ability to modulate nitric oxide metabolite activity and to promote healthy microcirculation.*

Glucose Metabolism: Alpha lipoic acid supports healthy glucose uptake and helps to maintain healthy glucose utilization. It also plays a role in moderating the formation of advanced glycation end products.*

Cardiovascular Support: In addition to supporting healthy glucose metabolism, the antioxidant properties of alpha lipoic acid also promote healthy vascular and blood vessel function.*
