Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is an unusual antioxidant because it is both water and fat soluble. It neutralizes free radicals by enhancing the antioxidants Vitamin C, Vitamin E and glutathione and it also recycles fat- and water-soluble vitamins. It helps maintain proper functions of two important enzymes involved in converting food into energy. It also helps to regulate glucose metabolism and enhance brain function.
Jarrow Formula's optimized Alpha Lipoic Sustain is in a special bilayer format that minimizes gastric irritation while it maximizes and sustains blood levels over a longer period of time thereby decreasing the likelyhood of blood sugar fluctuations. It does this with a one-third quick release and two-thirds sustained release bilayer tablet. For optimum ALA activity, Jarrow's Alpha Lipoic Sustain also contains the B-vitamin biotin.
