Alpha Lipoic Acid 600mg 60VC
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is naturally produced in the human body in very small amounts but is also available in some foods. ALA is unique in that it can function in both water and fat environments. ALA promotes the production of glutathione and can also recycle vitamins C and E, thereby enhancing their antioxidant activities. In addition, ALA may help to maintain healthy neural tissues, promote proper glucose metabolism and support healthy cardiovascular function.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a key factor in the cellular process that metabolizes glucose for energy production. Ageing is accompanied by a decreased ability of the liver to recycle ascorbic acid following oxidative stress. Studies have shown ALA, when given to ageing rats, reversed the age-related impairment of ascorbic acid recycling and concentration in liver cells. Ageing is associated with oxidative stress in the brain. Studies have shown longer term memory was enhanced by ALA. ALA is known as ‘The Universal Antioxidant’ – it is soluble in both water and fat and is able to recycle antioxidant nutrients such as Vitamin C and E.
