Product Description

Alpha lipoic acid acts a highly bioavailable antioxidant and so reduces oxidative stress and free radical damage in the body.  Alpha lipoic acid can act and interact with both fat-soluble and water-soluble components of cells and tissues of the body.  Importantly, alpha lipoic acid supports the liver and the detoxifying activities of the liver.  Additionally, alpha lipoic acid is a necessary component in the pathway (glucose-pyruvate-ATP pathway) that converts calories from our diet into energy.  Indivisuals with diabetes, liver conditions, or those who are exposed to toxins may not be able to produce enough alpha-lipoic acid.
