All about Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant found in every cell in the body as well as in some foods. It’s sometimes referred to as the “universal antioxidant" because it regenerates or recycles other antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10 and glutathione when they lose their ability to act as antioxidants. It also has the power to protect both cell membranes and the inside of cells against oxidative damage. Vitamin E is only effective at protecting cell membranes and other lipid-soluble structures from oxidative damage, and vitamin C only works well in a non-lipid environment. Alpha lipoic acid works well in both of these areas.

With its powerful antioxidant properties, it’s not surprisingly that alpha lipoic acid has been the focus of research. Studies have looked at its ability to ward off certain diseases and slow down the aging process. Preliminary research suggests it may be beneficial for preventing or treating diabetic nerve damage, glaucoma, heart disease, stroke and some types of degenerative brain diseases.
