Overview
Alpha Lipoic Acid, which is also known as thioctic acid, was first discovered in the 1950s. It is an enzyme found in the mitochondria, which are the energy powerhouses of the human cell. Scientists in the late 1980?s discovered that it possessed powerful antioxidant properties. In addition, it recycles other antioxidants, specifically vitamin C and vitamin E, enhancing their potency. Unlike other antioxidants, it has the unique ability to be active in both water and fat compartments in the body. Thus, Alpha Lipoic Acid is sometimes referred to as a universal antioxidant and is more effective in neutralizing free radicals than the majority of other antioxidants. It also plays an important role in the process that recycles glutathione which is another major antioxidant in the body. Finally, it also assists B vitamins in converting carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy.

Our Alpha Lipoic Acid 300mg is available in both 60 and 120 count sustained released vegetarian tablets.
