Alpha Lipoic Acid is an Antioxidant With Numerous Benefits

To fully understand the benefits of alpha lipoic acid (ALA), it is helpful to know a little about antioxidants and their role in eliminating and counteracting the impact of free radicals. A free radical is a normal by-product of metabolic processes in the body. Its atomic makeup allows a free radical to easily attach to other atoms, causing chemical reactions.

While some free radicals are desirable, such as those that help destroy viruses and bacteria, excessive free radicals can cause disease and contribute to the aging process. In addition to normal production by the body, free radicals result from environmental stresses such as smoking and pollution. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals.

Helps Maintain Energy Levels

Because ALA is soluble in both water and fat, its benefits are enhanced because it can move into all parts of cells to deactivate free radicals. ALA is also important for generating energy in the body, and deficiencies may result in the slowing of the metabolic rate.

Supports Other Antioxidants

ALA is an important nutrient. First, because it is a powerful antioxidant, it works to scavenge free radicals. Second, ALA helps regenerate vitamins C and E, which are also antioxidants. To neutralize free radicals, vitamins C and E must give up part of their atomic structure. ALA makes them useful again by replenishing this part.

Necessary For Brain Health

Especially important for brain health, ALA is one of the few antioxidants that can pass the blood brain-barrier, which enables it to protect brain tissue and prevent free-radical damage.

Help for Glucose Management

ALA is also well known for its use in diabetes support. It is a key factor in the metabolism of glucose, making it useful energy for the cell. ALA has been used successfully in Germany to treat diabetes since the 1960's. Numerous human clinical studies have verified the efficacy of ALA in supporting blood sugar levels.
