Alpha-Lipoic Acid, also known as lipoic acid, is found inside every cell of the body, where it helps generate the energy that keeps us alive and functioning. Lipoic acid, a sulfur-containing fatty acid, is a key part of the metabolic machinery that turns glucose (blood sugar) into energy for the bodyâs needs.
Alpha-Lipoic acid is an antioxidant, which means that it neutralizes naturally occurring but harmful chemicals known as free radicals. Unlike other antioxidants, which work only in water or fatty tissues, lipoic acid is unique since it functions in both water and fat. This gives Alpha-Lipoic Acid a broad spectrum of antioxidant action.
It is thought that certain nerve diseases are at least partially caused by free radical damage. Thanks to its combined fat and water solubility, lipoic acid can get into all the parts of a nerve cell and potentially protect it against such damage.
