Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) has become popular recently due to its many health benefits. It is made by our bodies and found in every cell. You can also get it from food and supplements.

The Health Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid

These benefits include:

  • Potent antioxidant
  • Lower blood sugar levels
  • Lower heart disease risk
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Slow skin aging
  • Improves nerve function
  • Protects the brain

A Potent Antioxidant

Free radicals can cause inflammation, premature skin aging, heart disease, nerve damage, Alzheimer's, and damage cells which can cause cancer. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant that rids our body of free radicals.

Alpha Lipoic Acid can also recycle other antioxidants like vitamins E and C so they can continue to rid our bodies of free radicals.

Lower Blood Sugar

Studies in animals have shown that it can lower blood sugar by 64%. Another study in adults found that it can lower fasting blood glucose and HbA1c levels, and reduce insulin resistance.

Too much fat in our cells is what can cause insulin resistance. Researchers believe that ALA can remove accumulated fat in muscle cells, reducing insulin resistance.

Lower Heart Disease Risk

Due to its antioxidant properties, ALA can reduce the oxidative stress that can lead to heart disease. Alpha Lipoic Acid improves endothelial function, which is vital for the proper dilation of blood vessels, lowering the risk of heart attacks and stroke. A Meta-analysis also found that ALA can lower LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
