ALPHA LIPOIC ACID
Chemical Name: Alpha lipoic acid or thioctic acid
Type of Supplement: Glucose Control
WHAT IT IS:
ALA is a vitamin-like substance that functions as a co-factor for energy
production. As both a water soluble and a fat soluble antioxidant, it provides
internal cell protection and cell membrane (external) protection against free
radicals. While the body can make ALA on its own, levels decline with age
HOW IT WORKS:
Upon ingestion, ALA is absorbed by the small intestine, enters the
bloodstream and crosses the blood-brain barrier and is found within cells,
between cell tissue and within the mitochondria (the cell's powerhouse).
In fact, when the body makes its own ALA, it synthesizes it in the
mitochondria. As an antioxidant, ALA prevents reactive oxygen species
(free radicals) from damaging cell membranes.
ALA provides antioxidant protection inside and outside of cells.
