Full Description

Lipoic acid has many different properties associated with it. It is often times used as an antioxidant and to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Lipoic acid is considered among the elite, multipurpose antioxidants. Also known as thioctic acid, lipoic acid is fat-soluble and slightly water-soluble. This property has made it a perfect electron transporter for both oxidized ascorbic acid (water-soluble) and vitamin E (fat-soluble). Alpha Lipoic acid also contains two thiol (sulfur) groups which allows it to reduce oxidized glutathione. The supplemental use of lipoic acid will have huge impacts on health in the population over the next ten years. Almost any portion of the body can use increased levels of alpha lipoic acid, and no known toxicity is known to exist except in diabetic patients. Diabetic patients should have blood sugar monitored if alpha lipoic acid is to be taken as it is known to improve sugar metabolism and may change insulin needs.
