Alpha Lipoic Acid, abbreviated as ALA, is a coenzyme that provides important metabolic functions, such as aiding in the breakdown of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fats) for energy production1, while also offering superior antioxidative benefits. ALA is often referred to as a “Universal Antioxidant” due to its ability to neutralize free radicals in both lipid and aqueous environments, as well as its wide versatility in targeting those oxidants, making it ubiquitously beneficial in all body systems.2 Going a step beyond some other antioxidants, ALA can regenerate many essential antioxidants such as glutathione, vitamins C and E, and coenzyme Q103 while helping to repair cells damaged by oxidation4. ALA also protect organs and other tissues from toxic metal accumulation, such as from mercury, lead or cadmium, by forming insoluble bonds with those metals and ensuring their secretion from the body.5 Health Thru Nutrition’s Alpha Lipoic Acid provides 600mg pure ALA in one vegecapsule to help you reach your goals.
