Alpha Lipoic Acid helps support conditions such as diabetes, and is a very unique and powerful antioxidant because it is both fat and water soluble. This makes it easily absorbed and transported across cell membranes, and gives it a potentially broader range of effectiveness against free radicals. Free radicals contain one or more unpaired electrons and cause damage by stealing electrons from other molecules such as DNA, proteins, and fats. Antioxidants prevent this damage by donating electrons to the radical, preventing the damage it can cause.
One most notable attribute of alpha lipoic acid is its ability to stabilize glucose and insulin levels, improving insulin sensitivity and insulin resistance. It also helps to regenerate glutathione, coenzyme Q10, vitamin C, and indirectly renews vitamin E. Due to its unique characteristics, alpha lipoic acid is showing great promise for treating conditions such as diabetes, cirrhosis, and heart disease.INGREDIENTS PER SERVING (1 capsule):Alpha Lipoic Acid, 300 mgVitamin C (Calcium Ascorbate),100mg/167% RDVSERVING SIZE: 1 capsules; 120 servings
