Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant made in the body from food sources. Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that protects our cells from the damage of free radicals formed during energy metabolism. ALA can be found in every cell and is a vital component in turning glucose into energy for our bodies to use.
Antioxidants help combat free radicals, the waste products created by our cells when we convert food into energy. Free radicals can cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells and adversely affect the immune system. Free radicals, if left unchecked, can also cause damage to organs and tissues.
Generally antioxidants work only in water (e.g. vitamin C) or in fatty tissues (vitamin E). However alpha lipoic acid is both fat and water soluble meaning that it can work unhindered throughout the body, combating free radicals. Antioxidants are continuously being destroyed in their fight against free radicals, which means that we have to keep eating (or supplementing) a constant replenishing supple.
