Alpha-lipoic acid is a key nutrient involved in the metabolism of food into energy and antioxidant defence. As a very small molecule, it is efficiently absorbed and easily crosses cell membranes. It works in combination with vitamins E and C to protect cells from oxidative stress. Because it is both fat- and water-soluble, alpha-lipoic acid is able to prevent free radical damage on both the inside and outside of cells. It also recycles vitamins C, glutathione, and vitamin E to restore their levels and effectiveness in the body.
Alpha-lipoic acid may benefit people with diabetes or pre-diabetic conditions by helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It is an approved drug in Germany for the treatment of a nerve disease called diabetic neuropathy and is a versatile antioxidant that may help many other conditions caused by free radical damage.
Although our bodies make some alpha-lipoic acid naturally, most of it is used for metabolic function with little left over for antioxidant protection. Supplementation with Natural Factors Alpha-Lipoic Acid is an important way to boost antioxidant levels.
Natural Factors Alpha-lipoic acid is a superior antioxidant that helps protect the entire cell from oxidative stress.
