Alpha Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger. Alpha Lipoic Acid is unique because it is both a water and fat soluble antioxidant, which allows it to provide protection both inside and outside the cell. Alpha Lipoic Acid has also been shown to activate and extend the biochemical lifetime of other valuable antioxidants such as Vitamins C, E and Glutathione.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger. Alpha Lipoic Acid is unique because it is both a water and fat soluble antioxidant, which allows it to provide protection both inside and outside the cell. Alpha Lipoic Acid has also been shown to activate and extend the biochemical lifetime of other valuable antioxidants such as Vitamins C, E and Glutathione.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant that works to support vascular and connective tissue health, maintain healthy collagen, protect cell structures and maintain blood lipid levels within normal ranges.

Alpha Lipoic Acid Supports:

  • The body's antioxidant defence systems to protect against free radical damage.
  • Glutathione production, which is the master antioxidant of the cell.
  • Detoxification functions, as well as chelation and removal of heavy metals.
  • Energy production, because it is a cofactor for enzymes needed to make ATP (cellular energy).
  • Cholesterol and blood glucose levels within normal ranges.
  • Metabolic enzyme production, insulin function and glucose metabolism.

Beneficial for:

  • People as they age
  • Those in need of extra antioxidant support
  • Athletes
  • Those under stress

Alpha lipoic acid can be made in the body, but its production decreases with age. Alpha Lipoic Acid has anti-ageing properties. Alpha Lipoic acid is converted to dihydrolipoic acid, which neutralises free radical before they can cause damage to the elastin and collagen in the skin that is associated with signs of ageing and wrinkles.

Athletes need antioxidant protection to help reduce free radical damage to muscles during times of work out and stress. Exercise causes oxidative stress, which can be countered by antioxidants. Aside from its antioxidant properties Alpha Lipoic Acid supports energy production, which is very useful in athletes.
