A product supplementing the diet with highest-quality alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) increasing the efficiency of energy production and protecting against adverse effects of oxygenation. It displays anti-oxidative action and the functional enhancement of other antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C and E.
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) inhibits the development of atherosclerotic lesions, supports heart function, improves efficiency, regulates glycaemia, and protects the eyes and the liver.
The second benefit of ALA is its "insulin mimicking" effects - the dramatic decrease in glucose levels. Insulin mimicking may also support increased concentrations of glutathione in the cells. It may also promote muscle cell nutrient intake and protein turnover. Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) displays insulin-like activity, facilitating the penetration of amino acids and creatine into muscle cells.
This powerful metabolic antioxidant is unique in that it is both fat and water-soluble, can travel to any cell in the body and is therefore one of our most readily available oxidation destroyers. The "universal" antioxidant as its commonly referred to, Alpha Lipoic Acid (or ALA) remains one of the most widely used and trusted free radical fighters to date. Naturally enhancing to the way our body uses B vitamins, ALA is also vital to the production of energy from the proteins, carbohydrates, and fats we take in each day.
Alpha lipoic acid is produced in the human body, but it can also be found in broccoli, spinach, yeast, potato, carrot, beetroot and red meats. The human body is also capable of synthesising it in small quantities; however, it is also recommended to be taken as a supplement. Many think that ALA is the ideal antioxidant as it dissolves in fat and water equally well. The antioxidant effect requires a daily dosage of 200-300 mg.
Recommended especially for persons at risk of atherosclerosis, diabetes, heart and liver diseases, obese persons, cigarette smokers, elderly persons, and athletes for adipose tissue reduction and improvement of strength, structure, and endurance of muscles.
