What is Swanson Ultra Alpha Lipoic Acid?

We hear a lot about antioxidants these days and it can be easy to dismiss them as the latest ‘health fad'. Of course that's far from the truth as antioxidants have always been around. They are in almost everything we eat and often come by other, more familiar names. Vitamin C is a great example.

  • Water & Fat soluble
  • Used throughout the body
  • Helps produce Glucose

They are important because they hunt down and neutralise oxidised cells. We call these cells free radicals and they can harm us in very small or incredibly large ways. They are at the root of so many degenerative diseases that humans suffer from ageing to cancer. Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant made by the body, which makes it non-essential. It is already found in in every cell, where its usual role is to transform glucose into energy.

For this reason, Swanson Ultra Alpha Lipoic Acid has found a lot of admirers in the bodybuilding community, where it is thought to promote energy production and improve muscle recovery time after workouts.

While some antioxidants work only only in water (water soluble, like vitamin C) or lipids (fat soluble, like vitamin E), Alpha-lipoic acid is both water and fat soluble. This means that supplements like Swanson Ultra Alpha Lipoic Acid are uniquely capable of working throughout the body.

What is Swanson Ultra Alpha Lipoic Acid used for?

One downside of antioxidants in the body is that they are quickly used up whenever they attack toxic free radicals. That's why Swanson Ultra Alpha Lipoic Acid is so unique. Thought to be capable of regenerating important antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, it can actually extend the life of common antioxidants already present in your body.

  • Extends the life of vitamins C and E
  • Universal antioxidant
  • Regenerates other antioxidants

By simultaneously helping the body to use glucose (improving blood sugar control) and activating other antioxidants, Swanson Ultra Alpha Lipoic Acid is capable of not only boosting your immune system but energising you too.

Metabolic syndrome is a potentially deadly combination of high blood pressure, high triglycerides, insulin resistance, and lowered levels of "good" HDL cholesterol. It is thought to be a major cause of heart disease. Alpha-Lipoic Acid is now thought to be a great way to combat the signs of this terrible affliction and lead a life free from the perils of heart disease.
