Water and lipid soluble antioxidant; supports glucose
metabolism and nerve health*
Alpha lipoic acid is both water and fat soluble which allows it to function in
almost any part of the body as an antioxidant. A key component of the metabolic
process, alpha lipoic acid produces energy in muscles and directs calories into
energy production. In addition, it helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism,
supports the nervous system and provides nutritional support for healthy liver
function. In one study, alpha lipoic acid decreased serum lactate and pyruvate
and promoted healthy glucose metabolism in lean and overweight individuals.
Alpha lipoic acid supported nerve health in subjects who participated in a
randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial. The ability of
alpha lipoic acid to modulate nitric oxide metabolite activity and to promote
healthy microcirculation accounted for its ability to promote nerve cell health in
two separate studies.*
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a multifunctional nutrient which plays a key role
in the antioxidant network and the metabolic process.*
