 Alpha Lipoic Acid bottleshot
-  What is it?
It is a potent antioxidant and is active in both fat- and water-soluble regions of the cells. This makes ALA quite rare and this is why it is called “the universal antioxidant.” ALA also supports healthy sugar metabolism, liver function and energy generation.


-  What is it recognized for?
It is a critical component of an enzyme that generates acetyl coenzyme A, the start of the Krebs cycle that produces ATP in the mitochondria. ATP is the main source of energy for all muscle contractions and almost all other activities that our cells perform. Most of all, ALA is recognized as a powerful antioxidant because it has the unique ability to reactivate helpful compounds like vitamin C, glutathione, vitamin E, and CoQ10, enabling them to do more for your health.


-  Are there any natural food sources for alpha-lipoic acid?
ALA is naturally synthesized in small amounts by plants and animals, and is found in many foods including spinach, beef, broccoli, and brewer’s yeast.


-  Why is it such an effective antioxidant?
ALA scavenges and terminates free radicals. The quenching of free radicals is a highly important aspect of healthy aging and immune health. ALA is a potent reducing agent and can reactivate other helpful antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ-10.


-  Are there any other important benefits of Alpha-Lipoic Acid?
In addition to supporting overall metabolic and cellular health, other benefits include the chelating of transition metals so they can be cleared from your body. This reduces the workload of the liver and improves cellular health. ALA supports healthy sugar balance, helping to support normal glucose metabolism in the cells, which in turn supports cellular energy and the function of cells. It has been shown in preliminary studies to improve memory and cognitive function. *
