R- Alpha Lipoic Acid

R-Alpha Lipoic Acid- is a naturally occurring substance that acts as a coenzyme in energy production in cellular metabolism and functions as an ideal antioxidant. Evidence shows that R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid delays the aging process, improves brain function and memory, stimulates immune function and supports liver health.R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid is also indicated for several pathologies that include arteriosclerosis, atherosclerosis, arthritis, cancer, ischemia-reperfusion injury, apoptosis, and HIV infection, all involving inflammation. It also offers protection against the sequelae of diabetes, such as neuropathy, cataract, and cardiovascular disease. R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid ameliorates insulin sensitivity in type II diabetes. R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid can directly and indirectly recycle ascorbate, glutathione, coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E. Hence, the idea of an “antioxidant network”. In addition, lipoic acid has both water-soluble and membrane-soluble characteristics, enabling it to reduce oxidized antioxidants at the lipid/water interface.
