Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Alpha-lipoic acid is a compound naturally found inside every cell of the body. ALA is an antioxidant made by the body. Antioxidants attack "free radicals," which are waste products created when the body turns food into energy. Free radicals are harmful and can damage cells, which in turn, makes it harder for the body to fight off infections. Free radicals can also damage organs and tissues. Unlike other antioxidants, which work only in water - such as vitamin C, or
only in fatty tissues - such as vitamin E, ALA works in both - fat and water. That means it can work throughout the entire body.
ALA has become popular as a potential aid to diabetes due to its ability to decrease insulin resistance and increase insulin sensitivity. It also may help fight the signs of skin aging, decrease cholesterol, assist with memory loss-related disorders, promote healthy nerve function, and reduce inflammation. ALA potentially chelates heavy metals and regenerates other antioxidants.
