Health Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a coenzyme present in mitochondria, similar to vitamins. It contains a disulfide five-membered ring structure with high electron density, significant electrophilicity and ability to react with free radicals, so it has antioxidant properties. It can eliminate free radicals that accelerate aging and disease. It has high health care function and medical value (such as anti-fatty liver and lowering plasma cholesterol). Alpha Lipoic Acid enters the cells after intestinal absorption in the body. It has both fat-soluble and water-soluble properties. Therefore, it can pass through the whole body without any resistance. It can reach any cell site and provide comprehensive effects. It is a fat-soluble and water-soluble omnipotent antioxidants. 

Dr. Lester Park, Professor of Molecular Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, is one of the world's leading researchers in antioxidants. He calls Alpha Lipoic Acid a "super antioxidant" that is the most versatile and active of all antioxidants. "An antioxidant." In addition, the sulfhydryl group of Alpha Lipoic Acid is easily redoxed to protect the thiolase from heavy metal ions. Lipoic acid is widely distributed in nature, and is abundant in liver and yeast cells. Alpha Lipoic Acid is often present in the food together with vitamin B1. The human body can be synthesized. Humans have not been found to have a deficiency in Alpha Lipoic Acid.


Alpha lipoic acid has the following functions:

1. Help patients reduce their dependence on insulin and hypoglycemic drugs. Alpha Lipoic Acid balances blood sugar, promotes glucose absorption, improves glycemic control in diabetic patients, and reduces the use of insulin or hypoglycemic drugs.

2. Protect the nerve tissue of diabetic patients and help treat peripheral neuropathy. Foreign studies have shown that Alpha Lipoic Acid can significantly improve the clinical symptoms caused by diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

3. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant. Its antioxidant capacity is 5-10 times that of grape seed, while grape seed has 20 times more antioxidant capacity than vitamin C. 60 times more vitamin E.
