A high potency powerful free radical scavenger providing 200mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid per capsule it is a broad-spectrum sulphur containing antioxidant that can operate in both fat and water-soluble tissues, unlike most other antioxidants. Alpha Lipoic Acid is also involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels
This vitamin-llke, sulphur containing antioxidant (also known as thioctic acid) has proven to be many times more potent than antioxidants such as vitamin C and E. It may even recycle C and E, as well as other antioxidants, enhancing their effectiveness. Because it dissolves in both water and fat, this 'universal antioxidant' is able to scavenge a wider range of free radicals than most antioxidants, the majority of which tend to dissolve in either fat or water, but not both. Alpha Lipoic Acid reaches fatty tissues such as nervous tissue, as well as those made mainly of water, such as the heart. Alpha Lipoic Acid is present in the diet from spinach, liver and brewers yeast but if dietary intake is insufficient, supplementation may become an important option.
Antioxidants are substances produced in the body that help protect against free radical damage (oxidation). When overexposure and high levels of free radicals exceed the body's ability to counter this damage, antioxidant supplementation is needed. Because every cell in the body is exposed thousands of times a day to the damaging effects of free radicals, a constant supply of antioxidants must be provided to prevent disease and keep us healthy. Although a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables provides a varied source of important antioxidants, many people do not get an adequate intake of fruit and vegetables, so supplementing with antioxidants can be essential. This is particularly important if you work with chemicals and pollutants or have a family history of disease or suffer from degenerative health conditions.
