How Alpha-Lipoic Acid WorksAlpha-Lipoic Acid is from the Douglas Labs Antioxidants product line.
Douglas Labs Alpha Lipoic Acid is a non-vitamin coenzyme that carries out important metabolic and antioxidant functions in the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a nutritional coenzyme that is involved in energy metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, has physiological functions in blood glucose disposal, and is able to scavenge a number of free radicals.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a fat-and water-soluble, sulfurcontaining coenzyme. It functions in the body much like a B-vitamin, since it is involved in energy production. As part of several multi-enzyme complexes located in the mitochondria, alpha-lipoic acid is essential for metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and for the conversion of their energy into ATP.
A related metabolic function of Alpha Lipoic Acid is its role in blood glucose disposal. This important coenzyme appears to be necessary for the normal transport of blood glucose into the cell.
Alpha Lipoic Acid by Douglas Labs is unique among biological antioxidants, because it is soluble in both water and lipids. This allows it to neutralize free radicals just about everywhere in the body, inside and outside the cells. Due to its unique sulfur-containing structure, Alpha Lipoic Acid can scavenge several types of free radicals, such as the highly reactive hydroxyl, and singlet oxygen free radicals. It is also capable of suppressing the generation of free radicals in the first place, since Alpha Lipoic Acid chelates transition metals, such as iron and copper. Because alphalipoic acid is involved in so many different antioxidant functions in virtually all body tissues, it has been called the universal antioxidant.
Besides being a universal free radical scavenger, Alpha Lipoic Acid can also recharge other antioxidant systems throughout the body.
