How To Buy
  • Provides 400 mg of alpha lipoic acid per day
  • Water and fat solubility provides exceptional versatility as an antioxidant
  • Protects against oxidative damage caused by free radicals

Alpha lipoic acid is an exceptionally versatile nutrient. Being both water- and fat-soluble, this multifunctional compound is able to function in almost any part of the body. Free radicals are atoms, ions, or molecules with one or more unpaired electrons that bind to and destroy cellular compounds. Dietary antioxidants disarm free radicals through a number of different mechanisms. Foremost, they bind to the free electrons, “pairing up” with them to create innocuous cellular compounds that the body can eliminate as waste. The antioxidant properties of alpha lipoic acid decrease oxidative stress, which is closely related to AGE production and is a known contributing factor to many of the same health concerns associated with AGE. Alpha lipoic acid scavenges free radicals and regenerates the antioxidant vitamins C and E.
