Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

A universal antioxidant for energy production, blood sugar regulation and the maintenance of a healthy neural system. Also helps to reduce the complications associated with diabetes (such as pain and numbness).

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and its active metabolite, DiHydrolipoic Acid (DHLA) have unique antioxidant properties.

Working together, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and DiHydrolipoic Acid (DHLA) can neutralize almost all types of free radicals. Eg. Superoxide, hydroxyl, peroxyl, and hypochlorus radicals.

DiHydrolipoic Acid (DHLA) is able to recycle or spare other important antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and CoQ10 (Co-enzyme10). This enables longer and greater antioxidant protection.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and DiHydrolipoic Acid (DHLA) are able to scavenge free radicals in both fat soluble and water soluble environments. This enables antioxidant protection in all areas of the body includingthe brain and nerves which are fat-soluble areas.
