Alpha Lipoic Acid & Biotin
What is Lipoic Acid? Alphal lipoic acid (ALA), also known as thioctic acid, is one of the most versatile antioxidants available. Supportive of a wide variety of health-related issues, ALA is able to recharge vitamin E, vitamin C, glutathione and CoQ10, and directly quenches reactive oxygen species (ROS). Since it has watersoluble, fat-soluble and sulfhydryl properties, it can be utilized by many different bodily tissues in a variety of ways. Its unique chemical properties allow ALA to support blood sugar balance, as well as to help maintain blood pressure already within normal range. This formulation of Lipoic Acid contains 300 mg of ALA and 300 mcg of biotin to protect against loss of biotin as a result of the competition of the two.
With its potent antioxidant properties, research has shown ALA strongly supports the neurovascular system, as well as overall circulatory and blood vessel health. As a short chain fatty acid, ALA can both be absorbed by fatty tissues and maintain its solubility in water, allowing it to be easily excreted from the body when not needed. In addition, orally supplemented ALA readily crosses the blood brain barrier after absorption in the small intestine. It then undergoes distribution via systemic circulation. Once inside the tissues, ALA can exert its antioxidant benefits both inside and outside the cells, including the cellular powerhouse, the mitochondria, where it functions as a coenzyme in several different biochemical pathways. ALA also serves as a sulfur donor, which allows it to support detoxification pathways that require this nutrient. Studies have shown that ALA also modulates the expression of genes which allows it to support blood sugar balance and
