    The basics

    Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent antioxidant that is naturally found in various foods and has been identified to have significant therapeutic potential, especially in individuals with specific genetic variations.

    The need to know

    What are the benefits?

    Mega protector

    • Supports sugar metabolism
    • Helps with brain fog
    • Protects against heart disease, liver disease and improves energy

    The Science

    Alpha lipoic acid is unique among antioxidants as it is both water- and fat-soluble, allowing it to work in various parts of the cell. It plays a role in the energy production process within cells by aiding the conversion of glucose into energy. Furthermore, ALA has been found to reduce the activation of NF-kB, thereby decreasing inflammation. This reduction in inflammation contributes to its protective effects against various diseases. One of ALA's standout features is its ability to recycle other antioxidants like vitamins C and E, enhancing the body's overall antioxidative defence. This is particularly crucial for individuals with genetic variants like SOD2, who might require increased antioxidant support. The involvement of ALA in numerous biochemical reactions helps improve energy metabolism, detoxification, and protection against oxidative stress.

    How will I know its working?

    Benefits may manifest as improved mental clarity, enhanced energy levels, and reduced inflammatory symptoms. Over time, tests may also show improved liver and heart function markers.

    When to take it?

    Take 1 tablet daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.
