Alpha-Lipoic acid functions as both a water-soluble and fat-soluble antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralise free-radicals, normal by-products of metabolism. ALA's ability to act upon free radicals in both a watery and fatty environment makes it a highly versatile antioxidant.
What is Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA)?
Alpha-Lipoic acid is a sulphur-containing fatty acid that performs vitamin-like roles in the body. Also known as "Lipoic acid" or "thioctic acid," ALA functions, in a similar way to B complex vitamins, as a co-enzyme in the metabolism of carbohydrates that produces energy inside cells for the body's metabolic needs.
