What is Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha lipoic acid is a fatty acid that's naturally produced and is found in every body cell. It's essential in energy production. In particular, it converts blood sugar, or glucose, into usable energy. In addition, this compound is a natural antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals. Alpha lipoic acid is water and oil soluble. This is unlike many other supplemental, such as water soluble vitamin C and vitamin E which is oil soluble. Plus, this compound appears to recycle some other antioxidants after the body has used them. Why use Alpha Liporic Acid Alpha lipoid acid appears to prevent certain cell damage. Studies have shown this compound to improve diabetic neuron damage. It helps with energy production. It’s believed that this fatty acid protects the brain when injured or damaged. You see, alpha lipoid acid can pass through the blood-brain barrier. Many other natural or pharmaceutical compounds cannot. It neutralizes free radicals, which damage body cells. Liver disease, cataracts, MS, glaucoma, Alzheimer’s disease and stroke are also benefit from supplemental use. Dose Although, the body produces alpha lipoic acid, it diminishes with age or the use of certain medications. Small amounts are found within certain foods, such as broccoli, spinach, peas, brewers yeast, rice bran and meat organs. Although there is no supplemental requirement, dosage suggestion is 600 to 1200 mg per day. Alpha lipoid acid may effect other medications being used. A health care provider should be consulted before adding alpha lipoid acid to your regimen.
