Description Usage Other Ingredients

Alpha-lipoic acid is a highly versatile nutrient that functions as an antioxidant and is essential for energy production and glucose transport. It also plays a critical role in the detoxification and elimination of organic toxins and toxic heavy metals. Alpha-lipoic acid is a naturally occurring sulfur containing compound made by the body in small amounts. Dietary intake is an important source of alpha-lipoic acid even in healthy people.

Conditions such as aging and illness increase dietary need for alpha-lipoic acid.

Energy Production: Alpha-lipoic acid supports cellular energy production. It is an essential cofactor for several enzymes in the Krebs metabolic cycle that extracts a maximal amount of energy from glucose. It increases glucose uptake and improves its utilization.

Antioxidant Activities: In the process of using oxygen to fuel metabolism, the body generates highly reactive kinds of oxygen molecules that can severely damage (oxidize) bodily proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and genetic material (DNA). Alpha-lipoic acid is a unique antioxidant protecting biological compounds from oxidative damage. It is both a water- and fat-soluble antioxidant and functions whether it has been chemically reduced (gained electrons) or oxidized (lost electrons). These properties make alpha-lipoic acid a highly versatile defender against oxidative stress. Alpha-lipoic acid plays an important role regenerating other highly important water- and fat-soluble antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and coenzyme Q10.

Metabolism: Alpha-lipoic acid is involved in the breakdown of the branched-chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine, and valine. It also plays an important role in breaking down alpha-keto acids.

Detoxification: Studies indicate alpha-lipoic acid increases glutathione synthesis, an important cellular antioxidant that also plays a role in the detoxification and elimination of potential carcinogens, toxins, and heavy metals. Alpha-lipoic acid can bind with unwanted toxic heavy metals, including lead and mercury, as well as trace metals manganese, copper, and zinc reducing their potential toxicity when in excess.

DNA synthesis: Alpha-lipoic acid plays an important role in the synthesis of nucleic acids, the building blocks of genetic material (DNA). It is part of the essential metabolic system that gives rise to the pivotal B vitamin folate intermediate, 5,10-methylene tetrahydrofolate.
