Alpha Lipoic Acid 600mg - 60 VCaps
 

  • Universal Antioxidant
  • 600 mg - Highest Potency
  • With Grape Seed Extract & Bioperine
  • Vegetarian Formula
Many nutritionists and researchers refer to Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) as the "universal antioxidant" based on its fat/water solubility.  This allows it to travel to virtually any cell in the body to quench cell damaging oxidation.  In addition, ALA has been shown to increase the free radical fighting abilities of other vitamins and antioxidants, especially C and E.

NOW ALA 600 mg uses only the highest grade Alpha Lipoic Acid available, and delivers it in a high potency that has been proven safe in studies.  To further support antioxidant activity, we've added 30 mg of Grape Seed Extract and 5 mg of Bioperine, a potent compound that helps enhance the absorption of ALA.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a versatile water and fat soluble metabolic antioxidant.  It is a potent free radical quencher and aids Vitamins C and E in their antioxidant activities. Vitamins C and E are added as complementary, synergistic antioxidants.

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) has many functions, but it’s one of the most effective free radical scavengers, and the only one known to easily get into your brain.It also has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamins C, E, and glutathione. So, when your body has used up these antioxidants, if there’s ALA around, it helps regenerate them.

One condition that ALA helps is peripheral neuropathy.  This condition can be caused by injury, nutritional deficiencies, chemotherapy or medical conditions. Alpha lipoic acid works as an antioxidant in both water and fatty tissue, enabling it to enter all parts of the nerve cell and protect it from damage.  It can cross the blood-brain barrier, a wall of tiny vessels and structural cells, and pass easily into the brain, and ALA is thought to protect brain and nerve tissue by preventing free radical damage.

Alpha lipoic acid also does one other thing that no other antioxidant does – it actually has the ability to recycle other antioxidants over and over again. With antioxidant capabilities like this, alpha-lipoic acid is used to treat a number of ailments and boost immune function. Diabetics can benefit from alpha-lipoic acid use to treat nerve damage that is caused by long-term complications of the disease.
