Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha-Lipoic-Acid or ALA is a sulphur component produced by plants, animals and humans.

In humans, it is found in the mitochondria, the energy centre of the cells where is acts as a co-factor for different enzymatic functions required for the production of energy.

ALA is both water and fat soluble and has powerful antioxidant abilities. It inactivates free radicals and repairs damage but can also help to produce and restore other important antioxidants such as glutathione and vitamins C and E.

It is a metal chelating agent, meaning it supports the removal of heavy metals from the blood stream.

Its involvement in glucose and lipid metabolism means it is useful for blood glucose control in diabetes and has been used therapeutically to support symptoms of diabetic neuropathy.

Studies have also shown it maybe useful in the prevention of ovarian damage from certain chemotherapy drugs via its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

The human body creates a small amount of ALA, but mostly we consume is from fruit, vegetables and meat.
