Alpha lipoic acid molecule structure

Alpha Lipoic Acid 250 mg - Powerful Antioxidant to Fight Free Radicals

Alpha lipoic acid is unique in neutralising around six types of particularly damaging free radicals. It's also a chelator of several toxic metals. It's used preventatively and therapeutically in a number of diseases, in particular, the complications of diabetes.

What are the benefits associated with Alpha Lipoic Acid?

Alpha Lipoic Acid is called the universal antioxidant because:

  • It's active in aqueous and lipid regions (it's both water-soluble and fat-soluble).
  • It recycles vitamin C, vitamin E, Coenzyme Q10 and Glutathione after their use by the body and therefore significantly increases their effectiveness.
  • It is rapidly converted to its metabolite dihydrolipoic acid in most tissues and in this form, protects against free radicals.

What is oxidative stress?

Oxidative stress is what happens when our cells are attacked by free radicals. In excess, these unstable molecules overwhelm our defences, damaging the body. Here we take a look at their sources and consequences, and the ways in which we can help keep them under control.

What are the various causes of ageing?

Ageing is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors: DNA shortening, oxidative stress, glycation... Here we take a look at the ageing process, its causes, and the ways in which we can slow it down.
