Is Vitabase Alpha Lipoic Acid (250 mg) Right for You?
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is valuable because it not only neutralizes free radicals, but it also "recycles" Vitamin E and Vitamin C. It can restore the antioxidant properties of these vitamins after they have neutralized free radicals. Because ALA is soluble in both water and fat in can move into all parts of cells to deactivate free radicals. ALA has been used for three decades in Europe because of its positive effects on blood sugar levels. ALA is also important for generating energy in the body and deficiencies can result in the slowing of the metabolic rate.
