BENEFITS OF ALPHA LIPOIC ACID

Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful and versatile antioxidant as it defends against free radical damage.

It can act both in lipid and water environment, which allows it to work in every cell and tissue of the body.

Contrast this with antioxidants such as vitamin C, which is not very lipid-soluble (so is not able to penetrate the lipid wall of cell membranes very well), or vitamin E, which is not very water-soluble. When lipoic acid is combined with these antioxidants, the body’s ability to fight free radicals is greatly increased. It helps to regenerate vitamins C and E as well.

It helps to boost the positive effects of Coenzyme Q10 and glutathione — which are essential in fighting ageing and chronic diseases. It is recommended to supplement alpha lipoic acid together with b complex vitamin, to maximise the results, as it supports the energy production in the body.

Our body produces alpha lipoic acid naturally however with age the its production decreases, which can lead to free radical-induced damage.

As we can get small amounts of alpha lipoic acid in foods but it’s very small amounts, as such supplementation is highly recommended.

Alpha lipoic acid is most known to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and reduce oxidative stress, but it has other benefits as well.

BENEFITS OF ALPHA LIPOIC ACID:

1. SLOWS DOWN AGEING PROCESS

It raises the levels of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C and glutathione, which helps to protect against skin damage and reduces signs of ageing.

2. IMPROVES MEMORY AND MENTAL HEALTH

It has the ability to neutralize free radicals and to slow down progression of memory loss.

3. BOOST IMMUNE SYSTEM & HELP REDUCE INFLAMMATION

It reduces oxidative stress in the body via powerful antioxidant activity.

Chronic inflammation is linked to chronic diseases, such as cancer, heart diseases, diabetes. As alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant is having the ability to decrease inflammation and fight free radicals.

Oxidative stress and production of free radicals is one of the main problems in diabetes. Free radicals circulate in the body and damage tissues. R-ALA prevent this damage by neutralizing the free radicals.

Prevents free radical damage to neurological system as well.

4. SLOWS DOWN SKIN AGEING

Help to improve elasticity and firmness of the skin. Reduces wrinkles and roughness of the skin. Makes it smoother.

As it raises the levels of glutathione it protects against skin damage and help reduce the signs of ageing.

5. IMPROVES SKIN TEXTURE AND HELP REDUCE ACNE

It is very helpful in treating acne as it helps to control body’s level of insulin and sugar. It also helps with inflammation.

Skin benefits of alpha lipoic acid may be enhanced when combined with Coenzyme Q10, Grape seed oil, and selenium.

6. LOWERS BLOOD SUGAR

R-ALA was found to lower blood sugar levels and help maintain optimal blood sugar levels by helping the body to use glucose.

It also reduces blood pressure and insulin resistance and improves the lipid profile.

7. REMOVES TOXIC METALS FROM THE BODY

Lipoic acid helps to protect the body against toxic metal contaminations found in food and environment. It chelates arsenic, lead, mercury and render them so they can be removed from the body. If you eat lots of fish, alpha lipoic acid, will help you to get rid of toxic heavy metals faster.

Skin benefits of alpha lipoic acid may be enhanced when combined with Coenzyme Q10, Grape seed oil, and selenium.
