Now Foods Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 Mg (60 Veggie Caps) (60 Vcaps®)
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body from oxidative damage related to aging and exercise. ALA supplementation can also support glucose uptake by the body's cells. Alpha lipoic acid recycles both fat and water soluble antioxidant vitamins, improves sugar metabolism and energy production, promotes the incorporation of cysteine into glutathione and combines synergistically with other antioxidants for increased benefits. Thus, it is known as the ideal or universal antioxidant and free radical scavenger.
