Alpha-lipoic acid is a vitamin like substance that affects nearly every cell in the body. It is involved in energy production and acts as a powerful antioxidant. More specifically Alpha-lipoic acid supports B Vitamins to break down the carbohydrates, proteins and fats in the foods we eat into more usable energy for other organs in the body. Alpha-lipoic acid also works effectively to help prevent cell damage and also restores the levels of other antioxidants such as vitamin C and E.

Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant which attacks free-radicals, but what makes it that extra bit effective in that whilst other antioxidants work only in water or fat, Alpha-lipoic acid is easily absorbed as it is both fat and water soluble. Alpha-lipoic Acid also may help regenerate these other antioxidants such as vitamin C and E.
