Lipoic acid 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. Due to its unique sulfur-containing structure, lipoic acid can scavenge several types of free radicals, including the highly reactive hydroxyl and singlet oxygen free radicals. It is also capable of suppressing the generation of free radicals. Besides scavenging free radicals, lipoic acid potentiates the effect of other antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and selenium, and can regenerate glutathione. Because lipoic acid is involved in so many different antioxidant functions in virtually all body tissues, it has been called the universal antioxidant.
