1) What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a beneficial sulfur-containing antioxidant which can be produced in the body and is found naturally in foods, such as red meat, yeast, spinach, broccoli and potatoes. ALA is unique because it is both fat and water soluble, meaning it can interact with multiple systems throughout the body. It is a potent antioxidant itself and has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants, such as glutathione, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E, to address the various types of free radicals in blood, organ tissue or muscles. It is important to address these free radicals as we age to maintain a healthy biological system.
2) What are the benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid?
With its ability as an antioxidant to respond to oxidative stress, ALA has been shown to support kidney, eye and liver health. Due to bad eating habits or poor glucose metabolism, ALA can be beneficial for proper glucose metabolism as it helps transport glucose into the cell. This mechanism supports the metabolism of glucose into energy, which consequently promotes normal blood glucose levels.
3) How does Alpha Lipoic Acid work?
ALA is a fat and water soluble antioxidant that addresses the free radicals in the body, which can be damaging as they can disrupt the structure and stability of many crucial factors at the molecular and cellular level.
Alpha Lipoic Acid can support healthy glucose metabolism because of its action as an insulin mimic. Glucose Transporter Type 4 (GLUT4), is the insulin-regulated glucose transporter found in skeletal and cardiac tissue that transports glucose across the cell membrane into the cell to be used for energy or stored as fat. In times of low insulin status, GLUT 4 is found within pockets of cells and it is insulin and ALA that both make GLUT 4.
Individuals with inadequate glucose metabolism often have issues with glycation, which is the bonding of a sugar molecule with a protein or fat molecule without the regulation of an enzyme. This bonding causes severe tissue damage and leads to decreased kidney, eye and cardiovascular health. Studies have shown that ALA halts glycation and promotes the transfer of blood sugar into the cells by stimulating insulin activity.
