Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant made by the body that is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose into energy. It is considered a "conditionally essential antioxidant nutrient", as it attacks "free radicals," waste products created when the body turns food into energy. It is a unique antioxidant that functions in water and fat, unlike the more common antioxidants vitamins C and vitamin E, and it appears to be able to recycle antioxidants such as vitamin C and glutathione.

What is Alpha Lipoic Acid and where does it come from?

Alpha Lipoic Acid, also called thiotic acid, is considered a "conditionally essential antioxidant nutrient". The body makes some of its own Alpha Lipoic Acid, but you still need to get most of it from your food. Its most plentiful source is in red meat, but is also found in plants. Your body’s ability to make Alpha Lipoic Acid also declines with age, so you become more dependent on dietary sources.

It is an excellent alternative treatment to other medications for diabetic peripheral neuropathy, and its use is well supported in many clinical studies.

What makes alpha lipoic acid unique is that it functions in water and fat, unlike the more common antioxidants vitamins C and vitamin E, and it appears to be able to recycle antioxidants such as vitamin C and glutathione after they have been used up.
