Alpha Lipoic Acid is an amino acid which is produced in the human body. It has strong ant oxidant properties. What makes Alpha lipoic acid special is the fact that it is water- as well as fat soluble. Because of this, alpha lipoic acid can be effective in all parts of the human body.
Our body constantly releases free radicals into the bloodstream. This is caused through stress, bad nutrition or environmental factors to name but a few. Free radicals have the potential to damage cells and cause illnesses in the long term. Antioxidants form a chemical bond with these free radicals, thereby neutralizing them and rendering them harmless for the body.
Alpha Lipoic Acid can enhance the effects of other antioxidants such as vitamin C or E.
Studies have also shown that alpha lipoic acid has a positive influence on the insulin sensitivity in the body which has a stabilizing effect. And last but not least, because alpha lipoic acid is also fat soluble, it can improve the fat metabolism and thereby assist weight loss efforts.
