 Alpha-lipoic acid

Alpha-lipoic acid, also called thioctic acid, is a vitamin like antioxidant and has an important role in protecting cell membranes. It is easily absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract and it reaches the cell membrane and penetrates the cell hence protecting the cell from within and without. In the body it can be converted to DHLA (dihydrolipoic acid) which in its own right is a potent antioxidant.

In addition ALA and DHLA help to regenerate other antioxidants such as CoQ10, vitamin C and glutathione.

ALA and DHLA both act as heavy metal chelators. In this manner they bind up excess mercury, cadmium, copper and iron, hence limiting their harmful effects.

Moreover it is believed that ALA and DHLA have regulatory effects on proteins and genes. This process is important in cell growth and metabolism.

There is some research to show the benefits of ALA in prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, cataract, diabetes, HIV and Parkinson's disease.

The best source is potatoes, but it is found in most foods. The body can produce ALA too. However, it is said that the amount produced by the body is not enough for antioxidant activity.

Daily dose is 10-25 mg. 44
