Antioxidant Has Varied Functions

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a unique lipid- and water-soluble antioxidant that is a cofactor in energy production. ALA promotes the synthesis of another powerful antioxidant, glutathione, and recycles antioxidant Vitamins C and E, CoQ10 and glutathione. It also has the ability to remain active once it neutralizes free radicals. In addition, ALA helps to regulate glucose metabolism and chelates metals including cadmium, copper, iron, lead and mercury.

Double-blind clinical trials in humans have demonstrated that ALA reduces the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy and improves insulin sensitivity and blood sugar control. It improves lipid levels, cardiovascular health and nerve function as well. Studies have also shown beneficial effects in slowing down the aging process, particularly in the brain. ALA has been shown to improve mental function in elderly subjects and in a study in patients with Alzheimer's disease, ALA was found to dramatically slow the progression rate compared to untreated patients or patients receiving standard treatment.
