Acts As An Antioxidant And Converts Energy Into ATP
Description: Alpha-Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant, helping neutralize free radicals in our bodies - from smoking, pollution, fried foods - and protects our cells from damage.Free radicals, once formed, are capable of disrupting metabolic activity and cell structure. When this occurs, additional free radicals are produced, which can result in more extensive damage to cells and tissues. The uncontrolled production of free radicals is thought to be a major contributing factor to many degenerative diseases.
Alpha-lipoic acid is a fat- and water-soluble, sulfur-containing coenzyme. This allows it to neutralize free radicals just about everywhere in the body, inside and outside the cells. Due to its unique sulfur-containing structure, alpha-lipoic acid can scavenge several types of free radicals, such as the highly reactive hydroxyl, and singlet oxygen free radicals. It is also capable of suppressing the generation of free radicals in the first place, since alpha-lipoic acid chelates transition metals, such as iron and copper. Because alpha-lipoic acid is involved in so many different antioxidant functions in virtually all body tissues, it has been called the universal antioxidant.
