R-Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid, or lipoic acid, sometimes even thioctic acid, is an important antioxidant to the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid was first classified as a vitamin, then, upon later research, reclassified due to the body's ability to synthesis the disulfide compound. Alpha Lipoic Acid is important to energy-producing reactions that occur in the body and the metabolic reactions that occur in the mitochondria. Alpha Lipoic Acid has the ability to hunt down hydroxyl radicals, the nitric oxide radical, peroxynitrite, hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorite, single oxygen, and other oxygen related free radicals. Alpha Lipoic Acid has the ability to scavenge in aqueous as well as lipophilic regions. Alpha Lipoic Acid not only fights free radicals but also is involved in the recycling of biologic antioxidants such as vitamin E and C. Alpha Lipoic Acid increases ATP production and aortic blood flow. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a very busy compound that works towards maintaining a healthy body.

If you are diabetic, please be sure to keep close observation on your blood glucose levels as alpha lipoic acid may decrease blood glucose.If you are taking triiodothyroxine, research has shown that alpha lipoic acid may lower T3 levels as well, please watch closely. Alpha Lipoic Acid can also influence T helper/supressor ratios, patients medications to support this should be cautious.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is well tolerated by most people in the recommended doses; although those with diabetes should consult their health care professional before use. If high doses are administered, side effects that are gastrointestinal could occur. These side effects include nausea, vomiting, and headache.
