ALPHA LIPOIC ACID 100mg
Alpha Lipic Acidby Natrol is the universal antioxidant.
The structure of Alpha Lipoic Acid (AAL) enriches you with unique properties:
- It can act in lipo and hydrosoluble environments, protecting your body from oxidative stress.
- Increases the action and renewal of other antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
- It attaches with free ions to form chelates.
- It helps Group B vitamins to produce energy from proteins, fats and carbohydrates in food.
Due to all of this Alpha Lipoic Acid is one of the most effective antioxidants for combatting free radicals.
The function of antioxidants in the body is to neutralise free radiclas that are produced as a result of cellular oxidation. If there is a limited and controlled number of these elements it can be beneficial for the organism as they can be capable of eliminating pathegenic micro-organisms. As the number of free radicals increases and becomes unstable, this can lead to negative results such as alterations in the nervous system and other more serious illnesses (tumours, diabetes, cardiovascular problems and degenerative diseases).
Beneficial effects of Alpha Lipoic Acid in different disease:
Taking Alpha Lipoic Acid is very beneficial for people with diabetes. It has been proven to be effective in the regulation of blood sugar levels, as it normalizes them by facilitating entry into the cells for its use. It also increases the ability of insulin to use glucose and reduces insulin resistance in diabetics. And all this helps halt progression of the disease.
Free radicals (which Alpha Lipoic Acid neutralizes) help to increase thr activity of some cellular proteins designed by the nuclear factor kB (NF-kB) which is linked to the appearance of certain types of cancer. Alpha lipoic acid inhibits these proteins, and therefore prevents the appearance of malign cells.
It is also beneficial for neurological diseases (amongst others, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's...) and for cardiovascular diseases as it prevents LDL from oxidizing, and increases the effectiveness of vitamin E, increasing oxygenation of the heart.
This nutritional supplement is especially indicated for:
- treating diabetes.
- For improving memory.
- As a universal antioxidant.
