Alpha Lipoic Acid Immediate Release (IR) is ideal for men and women who want powerful antioxidant protection, optimal cellular energy production, and healthy glucose metabolism.*
Alpha Lipoic Acid IR provides alpha lipoic acid (ALA), a versatile antioxidant that also plays a key role in cellular energy production. As an antioxidant, it works throughout the body to neutralize harmful free radicals in a variety of ways. Deep within the mitochondria – the powerhouse of your cell – ALA activates enzymes involved in cellular metabolism and energy production.*
Alpha Lipoic Acid IR exerts its antioxidant effects in a variety of ways as the body’s universal antioxidant. Once absorbed, ALA can be converted to dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA). Together ALA and DHLA work in cell membranes and other fat-based areas of the body as well as in the blood and other water-based areas. ALA and DHLA can also regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione, making them available to quench more harmful free radicals. Finally, ALA and DHLA have the ability to bind certain metals, including heavy metals, thereby reducing their ability to cause oxidative damage that can damage cells.*
