What is ALA?
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a vitamin-like compound that has proven to posses potent antioxidant properties. It helps prevent healthy cells from getting damaged by unstable oxygen molecules referred to as free radicals.*
What is Dual Solubility?
ALA is often referred to as having dual solubility, making it one of the most versatile antioxidants because it is both fat and water-soluble. This means that it can move into all areas of the body to deactivate harmful free radicals.* Alpha lipoic acid’s antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals and therefore reduce damage to tissues all over the body, including those in the eye, liver, vessels and nerves.*
ALA & Your Health
Alpha lipoic acid helps improve the functioning of the liver, the body’s chief detoxifying organ.* It recycles other antioxidants, like coenzyme Q10, glutathione, vitamin E and vitamin C, all of which are used by the liver to render toxins and metabolic byproducts harmless.* Alpha lipoic acid reduces free radical damage in vessels and nerves.* This supplement also increases the uptake of sugar into cells, thus reducing blood sugar levels.* As you can see alpha lipoic acid is an important supplement for use in many different conditions.
Alpha lipoic acid is produced by the body in small amounts that are generally inadequate due to the great amount of stress our bodies face each day. It can be found in formulas for enhancing liver health, preventing age related disease and balancing blood sugar.* It is often combined with other antioxidants. Other names for alpha lipoic acid are alpha-lipoate and thioctic acid.
What is an Antioxidant?
Antioxidants are nutrients that help to protect your body from the damage caused by free radicals - the toxic molecules that play a role in the development of diseases from cataracts to heart disease.* While our bodies produce some of these free radicals as the "garbage" from some its natural processes, we are now exposed to more and more of them from our environment than ever before.
How Antioxidants Protect Your Cells:
When a free radical enters your body, it is attracted to the cells that make up the different tissues of it just like a magnet to metal. It then bonds to parts of the cell, which causes it to deteriorate in a way similar to that which oxygen causes metal to rust. If the cell gets damaged enough, it dies. Worse yet, if the cell DNA is damaged and then the cell reproduces, it reproduces abnormally as a result.*
