For the most efficient energy production, alpha-lipoic acid is an essential nutrient. It works with vitamins C and E to protect cells from stress caused by oxidation.
Alpha-lipoic acid is a tiny molecule that crosses cell membranes with ease and can be absorbed efficiently. Because it is both fat soluble and water soluble, alpha-lipoic acid can attack free radicals from both the inside and the outside of the cell.
Alpha-lipoic acid also works to recycle glutathione and vitamin C directly and E indirectly.
In Germany, alpha-lipoic acid has been approved as a drug used in the treatment of the nerve disease known as diabetic neuropathy. A number of double-blind studies have concluded that supplementation with 300600 milligrams of alpha-lipoic acid daily does, indeed, improve this condition.
The human body can make alpha-lipoic acid; however, supplementation is an excellent idea. The body makes regular use of this substance for regular metabolic function. For this reason, there is often not enough to perform antioxidant functions.
