Certain diseases, environmental conditions and age can cause depletion of Alpha Lipoic Acid. Supplementation provides unique free radical protection and may help improve energy levels. Alpha Lipoic Acid is involved in reactions in the cell that produce energy rich molecules from carbohydrates. It will dissolve in both fat and water and is able to neutralise fat and water soluble free radicals.
The Benefits of Natures Aid Alpha Lipoic Acid:
Antioxidant - damage by free radicals may be the basis for the ageing process. They cause harmful chemical reactions that can injure cells, making it harder to fight off infections and lowering resistance to heart disease.
Diabetics - Alpha Lipoic Acid normalises blood sugar levels in diabetics. As well as increasing energy levels it also appears to reduce the secondary effects of diabetes, including retinopathy, cataract formation, nerve and heart damage.
Liver Protection - it has been speculated that Alpha Lipoic Acid may help in conditions where oxidative stress is involved and success has been recorded in a number of conditions relating to liver disease, including alcohol-induced damage.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) - Alpha Lipoic Acid can penetrate eye tissue and protect both the lens and the retina from free radical damage.
HIV - there is evidence to suggest that Alpha Lipoic Acid may be helpful in treating HIV positive patients because it has antioxidant effects and can reduce the activity of an enzyme responsible for the replication of
HIV from the DNA of white blood cells.
