A-LIPOIC ACID – 300 mg – 60 caps
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a vitamin-like substance that has generated much interest in the last few years, especially with regards to both its ability to act as a powerful antioxidant and because of its role in energy production. Our bodies are able to make ALA although a dietary source is still important, and it is found in almost all foods, especially in kidney, liver, spinach, and broccoli.
In cells containing mitochondria, α-lipoic acid is reduced by NADH-dependent reaction to dihydrolipoic acid, but unlike antioxidant glutathione, both α-lipoic acid and its reduced form are powerful antioxidants quenching reactive oxygen species.
In addition, α-lipoic acid can reduce oxidized forms of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione (these antioxidants are effective in their reduced form and become oxidized when they neutralize free radicals), thus acting as an excellent antioxidant. α-Lipoic acid can also chelate metal ions, repair oxidized proteins, regulate gene transcription, and inhibit the activation of NK-κB. Experimental and clinical studies have shown that α-lipoic acid has beneficial effects in metabolic syndrome, diabetes and its complications, radiation damage, ischemia–reperfusion injury, and neurodegenerative diseases.
