Alpha lipoic acid is a fatty acid found naturally in every cell in the body and is an essential co-factor for many enzyme complexes. Supplementation can help improve alpha lipoic acid status in the body. Life Essentials® Alpha Lipoic Acid is a 100% vegetarian supplement that provides 300 mg of alpha lipoic acid per capsule.
Alpha Lipoic Acid has been used for decades in Europe, especially Germany. A vitamin-like antioxidant, Alpha lipoic acid is able to benefit just about every cell and function throughout the body due to its unique ability to dissolve in both lipid (fat)-based tissues and water-based fluids. For this reason, it is often referred to as a “universal antioxidant.” Antioxidants are substances that have been shown to help neutralize free radicals in the body, which can harm organs and tissues by attacking and damaging cells, proteins and DNA.
Alpha lipoic acid is not the same as alpha linolenic acid, which is an omega-3 fatty acid.
Life Essentials® Alpha Lipoic Acid is 100% vegetarian, provided in easy-to-swallow capsules, and supplies a full 300 mg Alpha Lipoic Acid in every capsule. Glass packaging extends natural freshness and helps maintain product potency.
