Best Alpha Lipoic Acid 150mg - Defends Against Free Radicals, 120 caps, (Doctor's Best)

This item is qualified for FREE GROUND SHIPPING!

Supports the Body Defenses Against Free Radicals and Helps Maintain a Healthy Blood Sugar Level When Used as Part of the Diet 
 
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a sulfur-containing fatty acid that functions like a vitamin in the body. As a coenzyme, ALA plays an important role in the metabolism of glucose that produces energy in cells. ALA also has antioxidant properties and thus is important for controlling free radicals. Because it is soluble in water and fat, ALA is sometimes referred to as the "universal antioxidant"

SUGGESTED USAGE
Take one to six capsules daily, with or without food.

How It Works

How "Sustained Release" works 
Using a highly sophisticated process involving mixing and compression, a specialized form of cellulose is combined with ALA, which results in substantial lengthening of the time required by the stomach to digest and release the nutrient into the small intestine. This enables the ALA to be slowly absorbed by the system, thereby maintaining and optimal concentration of effective antioxidant in the bloodstream throughout the day.
FAQ

How “about R-Lipoic” acid? 
Alpha Lipoic Acid occurs in two forms, designated "R" and "S". Studies suggest that R-alpha lipoic acid, the natural form, is more biologically active than the S form. Like ALA, RLA recycles antioxidant nutrients, such as vitamin C and E, and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels when used as part of the diet.
  • Natural form of alpha lipoic acid - found in humans, animals and plants.
  • More rapidly absorbed than S-lipoic acid (the synthetic molecular mirror-image of R-lipoic acid).
  • Exhibits potent antioxidant and anti-aging properties.
  • Shown to normalize blood glucose in insulin resistant study subjects.
  • Protects brain cells against neurotoxins.
Benefits
  • Supports the body’s defense against rree radicals recycles antioxidant nutrients such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
  • Helps maintain a healthy blood sugar level when used as part of the diet
Alpha-lipoic Acid––the "Ideal Antioxidant" 
The antioxidant potential of a substance is based on a number of criteria, including:  
1) Ability to quench specific free-radicals. 
2) Ability to bind or "chelate" metal ions that can generate free radicals. 
3) Supports function of other antioxidants. 
4) Absorption/bioavailability. 
5) Concentration in tissues, cells and extra cellular fluids. 
6) Ability to function as an antioxidant in fatty and watery environments. 
 
The "ideal antioxidant" would meet all the above criteria. Very few antioxidants do, yet a particular antioxidant with but a few of the characteristics is still valuable and effective. Vitamin E, for example, is one of the most important dietary antioxidants, yet it only works in fatty environments such as cell membranes. 
 
As a team, ALA and DHLA come close to the ideal, for the following reasons:1,2,3 
1) ALA is easily absorbed when consumed orally. 
2) ALA is readily converted to DHLA in various tissues. 
3) As a pair, ALA and DHLA neutralize superoxide, hydroxyl, peroxyl, and hypochlorus radicals.  
4) ALA and DHLA form stable complexes with metal ions such as iron, manganese, copper and zinc ions. 
5) ALA and DHLA scavenge free radicals in fatty environments and watery environments. 
6) DHLA recycles other important antioxidants. 
 
DHLA-regenerates vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione 
Within the cell, antioxidants work as a team to keep free radicals from damaging cell structures. In order to neutralize a free radical, an antioxidant such as vitamin C must give up an electron, which mean it becomes oxidized. Before it can function as an antioxidant once again, it must be regenerated back to its "reduced" form, by gaining an electron to replace the donated electron. For this, it needs the help of other antioxidants. Vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione are key antioxidants that can be generated by cycling between their oxidized and reduce forms. This is necessary to maintain the balance between oxidation and its reverse––the neutralization of free radicals by antioxidants. 
 
DHLA is an essential component in the interaction between these antioxidants. Studies show that addition of alpha-lipoic acid to liver tissues results in increased vitamin C levels. It has been found that DHLA is responsible for regenerating vitamin C, which in turn regenerates vitamin E. DHLA also converts glutathione from its oxidized form back into its free radical scavenging reduced form. The ALA/DHLA pair is thus vital for prevention of "oxidative stress," which occurs which the balance is tipped in favor of oxidation in cells. DHLA helps preserve antioxidants in both the watery cell interior and the fatty structure of cell membranes. Evidence from animal studies suggests that DHLA protects the brain against free radical damage. 
 
Alpha-lipoic Acid and blood sugar 
Alpha-lipoic acid is a key factor in the cellular process that metabolizes glucose to produce energy for cellular functions. The importance of ALA’s role in blood sugar metabolism is evidenced in studies on ALA and type-2 diabetes. In a small pilot study, 13 people with type-2 diabetes showed improved utilization of glucose in muscle tissue in response to intravenous administration of ALA. In a four week controlled multicenter trial, 74 people with type-2 diabetes took ALA in oral doses of 600, 1200 or 1800 mg per day. After 4 weeks, the normal lowering of blood sugar levels in response to insulin improved. In vitro studies have shown that ALA has a positive effect on insulin-stimulated uptake of glucose by muscle cells. 
 
Safety 
Alpha-lipoic acid is considered safe, and no adverse effects have been seen with long-term supplementation.
