What Is Alpha Lipoic Acid?

It has been associated with supporting nerve health, cardiovascular function, and glucose metabolism.
Alpha Lipoic Acid Benefits
Nerve Health: At this time, as many as fifteen clinical trials have examined the role of alpha lipoic acid in maintaining healthy nerve function. The results of these trials have typically demonstrated that alpha lipoic acid administration provides neuroprotection. In part, this may be due to alpha lipoic acid’s ability to modulate nitric oxide metabolite activity and to promote healthy microcirculation.
Glucose Metabolism: Alpha lipoic acid supports healthy glucose uptake and helps to maintain healthy glucose utilization. It also plays a role in moderating the formation of advanced glycation end products.
Cardiovascular Support: In addition to supporting healthy glucose metabolism, the antioxidant properties of alpha lipoic acid also promote healthy vascular and blood vessel function.
