CanPrev’s Alpha Lipoic Acid 600mg is supported with thiamine (vitamin B1) and biotin (vitamin B7) to help prevent potential nutritional deficiencies that can occur with alpha lipoic acid supplementation.

Alpha lipoic acid 600mg helps to promote healthy glucose metabolism and is a source of antioxidants for the maintenance of good health.

DL-Alpha Lipoic Acid (or ALA) is a unique, water and fat soluble, powerful antioxidant which is involved in mitochondrial electron transport reactions essential to cellular en- ergy production through the metabolism of glucose transport. ALA has been shown to increase intracellular levels of glutathione and coQ10 and has the ability to further reduce the oxidized forms of several other antioxidants such as vitamin c and E, thus regenerating them.

Thiamine & biotin are protective antioxidants and cofactors for energy production.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha lipoic acid is one of the most versatile antioxidants because it is both fat and water-soluble. This means that it can move into all areas of the body to deactivate harmful free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage. Alpha lipoic acid's antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals and therefore reduce damage to tissues all over the body, including those in the eye, liver, vessels and nerves. Cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma are exacerbated by free radical damage in the eye and therefore alpha lipoic acid can treat these conditions.

Alpha lipoic acid improves the functioning of the liver, the body's chief detoxifying organ. It recycles other antioxidants, like coenzyme Q10, glutathione, vitamin E and vitamin C, all of which are used by the liver to render toxins and metabolic byproducts harmless. Alpha lipoic acid reduces free radical damage in vessels and nerves. For example diabetics often suffer from heart disease and nerve damage because the excess sugar in the blood changes into a damaging agent. Studies show improvement in nerve conduction and arterial flow when diabetics use alpha lipoic acid. This supplement also increases the uptake of sugar into cells, thus reducing blood sugar levels. Alpha lipoic acid has anti-aging properties because as an antioxidant it protects the body against environmental pollutants other substances that and lead to aging. As you can see alpha lipoic acid is an important supplement for use in many different conditions and as a preventative therapy for all individuals.

Alpha lipoic acid is produced by the body in small amounts that are generally inadequate due to the great amount of stress our bodies face each day. It can be found in formulas for enhancing liver health, preventing age related disease and balancing blood sugar. It is often combined with other antioxidants. Other names for alpha lipoic acid are alpha-lipoate and thioctic acid.

Alpha lipoic acid may alter blood sugar levels and should be used cautiously by diabetics and hypoglycemic individuals. Skin rashes may occur in some people due to the use of alpha lipoic acid.
