Why These Natural Ingredients?
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), also known as thioctic acid, is one of the most versatile antioxidants
available. Supportive of a wide variety of health-related issues, ALA is able to recharge vitamin
E, vitamin C, glutathione and CoQ10, and directly quenches reactive oxygen species (ROS). In
addition to it’s well-known support of eye health, the unique chemical properties of ALA allow
it to support the neurovascular system, blood sugar balance, as well as overall circulatory and
blood vessel health.
ALA supports blood sugar balance by activating a protein called adenosine mono-phosphate
kinase (AMPK), a regulator of cellular energy. AMPK coordinates both long-term and short-term
metabolic changes, improving energy production and reducing energy storage. The compound
activates cellular metabolism by improving insulin sensitivity, down-regulating genes involved
in fat storage and activating genes involved with burning fat.
