Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant with 2 unique characteristics not found in other antioxidants. First, it is both fat & water soluble allowing it to go anywhere in your body to carry out its function. Second, it has the power to enhance & restore other antioxidants such as vitamin C, E. beta carotene, & selenium, with a crucial benefit being its ability to regenerate the all-important glutathione.*

Lipoic acid has been solidly studied & the scientific evidence shows it:

  • Is necessary for converting glucose into chemical energy.*
  • Decreases insulin resistance (which is a major factor in diabetes, obesity, & heart disease.*
  • Increases the efficiency of insulin.*
  • In some cases has reversed neuropathy (a painful nerve degeneration.)*
  • Improves nerve conduction.*
  • Is helpful with chemical hypersensitivity syndrome.*
  • Helps protect the liver when there is high alcohol intake.
  • Has liver protecting action.*
  • Used to decrease elevated liver enzymes of unknown cause.*
  • Helps with drug induced liver injury.*
  • Has protective & curative effects in heavy metal & toxic poisoning* such as arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium, nickel, iron & copper.*
  • Is considered the only antidote to mushroom poisoning.*
  • Reduces cataract formation.
  • Promotes the growth of new nerve fibers & may be able to help regenerate brain cells with long-term supplementation.*
  • Protecs LDL cholesterol from oxidation. Oxidized LDL cholesterol tends to stick to the walls of arteries, resulting in plaque build up,*
  • Protects tissues from damage associated with low oxygen supply such as following stroke, heart attack, trauma & surgery.*
  • Regulates aspects of your immune system & can inhibit the replication of HIV-I & other viruses as a natural protease inhibitor.*
