What are the benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid?
Glucose and insulin levels in control
Multiple placebo-controlled studies have shown that daily doses of 600 mg to 1,800 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) can maintain healthy insulin sensitivity and regulates glucose level, allowing you to keep healthy blood sugar levels that are already in the normal range.
Essential for the production of energy
Kreb’s cycle is the energy production process in the cell mitochondria. ALA is an important cofactor in Kreb’s cycle’s enzymatic reaction. For the optimal functioning of this cycle, your body requires adequate stores of ALA.
It is a universal antioxidant
Being a universal antioxidant, it also recharges other antioxidants like Vitamin C and Glutathione so you get more out of those nutrients. As ALA is soluble both in fats and water-based bodily fluids, it can protect every organ in the body from the harmful effects of free radicals.
The amount of ALA consumed in food and produced in your body is miniscule, and only a small quantity can be absorbed. However, the R-ALA found in nature is more bioavailable and biologically active than the S-ALA. Therefore, to maximize absorption we use 100% R-ALA in our Lypo-Spheric R-Alpha Lipoic Acid. ALA is both attracted to and repelled by water which makes its absorption in the gastrointestinal tract unreliable. The liposomal technology, used to wrap the nutrient in liposomes, comes to aid here. It protects the ALA from the digestive juices in the digestive tract and helps release the nutrient into the bloodstream.
