Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha-lipoic acid is believed to be a very important antioxidant. One of the most important characteristics of alpha-lipoic acid is that it is both fat-soluble and water-soluble. These properties allow alpha-lipoic acid to provide antioxidant protection in a wide range of body systems. Red meat is the best dietary source of alpha-lipoic acid. Smaller amounts occur in the leaves of some plants and in potatoes, carrots, yams, and sweet potatoes. Alpha-lipoic acid is also widely available in supplement form. Alpha-lipoic acid is thought to facilitate the production of energy for cells and enhance the effectiveness of other antioxidants. A lot of very exciting research is taking place looking at the role of alpha-lipoic acid in the promotion of health. Alpha-lipoic acid may also support healthy vision and glucose metabolism.
