Alpha Lipoic Acid, Antioxidant Dietary Supplement - Reviews, Dosage
Alpha lipoic acid is unique in neutralising around six types of particularly damaging free radicals, now available to buy at Supersmart. 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 capsules?
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.
