Description

Alpha-lipoic acid is an anti-oxidant that is made by the body and is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose into energy.Anti-oxidants are substances that attack waste products created when the body food into energy. Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells in the body, making it harder for the body to fight off infections. They also damage organs and tissues. Most other anti-oxidants work only in either water-soluble environments (such as vitamin C) or in fatty tissues (such as vitamin E). However, alpha-lipoic acid is both fat-and water-soluble.In addition, antioxidants are depleted as they attack free radicals,but evidence suggests alpha-lipoic acid may help regenerate these other anti-oxidants and make them active again. Alpha-lipoic acid helps to blood sugar levels, which is important for diabetics. Its ability to kill free radicals may help reduce pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in people who have nerve damage caused (called peripheral neuropathy). Taking alpha-lipoic acid as a supplement appears to help another diabetes-related condition called autonomic neuropathy, which affects the nerves supplying the heart.
