What is ALA?
ALA by BioTech USA is a product made of Alpha Lipoic Acid, one of the strongest existing antioxidants. It can be found in each cell of our body, and it helps to turn glucose into 'fuel' so that the organism functions properly.
What are the properties of ALA?
The designation of 'universal antioxidant' is due to the ability of ALA or Alpha Lipoic Acid to act both in lipidic and aqueous mediums. This gives ALA the possibility to address a broad range of cells. Inside our cells, Ala is transformed into dihydrolipoic acid, which exerts the protective effects over common cell reactions. One of the most important fields is to combat the action of free radicals. These substances are reagents and the consequence of chemical reactions produced in our organism and at the same time, because of the condition of external agents, such as pollution, sun exposure, or even the contact with certain elements such as heavy metal, or its ingestion through food.
Free radicals will produce the well-known oxidative stress, attacking cellular components, and propagating this effect to adjacent tissues. However, our organism has enough counter mechanisms in place, and if we support it with the intake of ALA, the result will be less deteriorated tissues apart from allowing the intervention of other important antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E.
El ALA también ofrece un efecto positivo para la captación de glucosa, lo que nos brinda una interesante cualidad para contribuir en la pérdida de grasa y el mantenimiento del peso. Además, el ALA coopera y realiza una acción sinérgica junto a las vitaminas del grupo B, a la hora del proceso de obtención energética y de nutrientes a partir de los alimentos de la dieta.
Who can benefit from ALA?
- Sportspeople and/or athletes that want an element to combat the harmful action of free radicals that are generated as a consequence of high-intensity activities. Moreover, it improves the sensitivity to insulin, and incorporates the strategy of carbohydrate loading efficiently.
- Anyone who wants antioxidant protection and to improve sensitivity to insulin in order to take advantage while it maintains corresponding habits when it comes to fat loss.
