Pure Encapsulations Alpha Lipoic Acid
400 mg 60 Capsules
Alpha lipoic acid is an exceptionally versatile nutrient; being both water and fat soluble, it is able to function in almost any part of the body. It is manufactured in the body, but often times not in the amounts necessary to perform its many functions. Alpha lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant which neutralizes harmful free radicals and enhances the activity of vitamins C and E. A key component of the metabolic process, alpha lipoic acid produces energy in muscles and directs calories into energy production. In addition, this powerful nutrient helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism, supports the nervous system and provides nutritional support for healthy liver function. In one study, alpha lipoic acid decreased serum lactate and pyruvate and promoted healthy glucose metabolism in lean and overweight individuals. Alpha lipoic acid supported nerve health in subjects who participated in a four-month, randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial. The ability of alpha lipoic acid to modulate nitric oxide metabolite activity and to promote healthy microcirculation accounted for its ability to promote nerve cell health in two separate studies.

  • 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.
