GLOSSARY
ALPHA-LIPOIC ACID

Alpha-Lipoic Acid

 

How does it work?

Alpha-Lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant which plays an essential role in protecting cell membranes by interacting with vitamin C and glutathione (the most potent antioxidant), which may enable vitamin E recycling.1 

Alpha-Lipoic acid is a fatty acid that can cross the blood-brain barrier and is therefore considered for treating brain and neuronal tissue pathologies where free radical damage has occurred.2

What results can be expected?

Alpha-lipoic acid can protect brain and nerve tissue from free radical damage, therefore is considered in age-related health conditions, diabetes and diabetic neuropathy, cataract formation, HIV activation, neurodegeneration, radiation injury and other causes of acute or chronic damage to brain and neural tissue.3
