Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful fat- and water-soluble antioxidant. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is also an important component in the glucose metabolism process within cells. Alpha-lipoic acid may support the normal insulin response and healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range
Features of Source Naturals Alpha Lipoic Acid
- It is a critical component of an enzyme that generates acetyl coenzyme A, the start of the Krebs cycle that produces ATP in the mitochondria. ATP is the main source of energy for all muscle contractions and almost all other activities that our cells perform. Most of all, ALA is recognized as a powerful antioxidant because it has the unique ability to reactivate helpful compounds like vitamin C, glutathione, vitamin E, and CoQ10, enabling them to do more for your health.
- It is a potent antioxidant and is active in both fat- and water-soluble regions of the cells. This makes ALA quite rare and this is why it is called “the universal antioxidant.” ALA also supports healthy sugar metabolism, liver function, and energy generation.
- ALA scavenges and terminates free radicals. The quenching of free radicals is a highly important aspect of healthy aging and immune health. ALA is a potent reducing agent and can reactivate other helpful antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ-10.
