What is Lipoic Acid?
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 recharges vitamin E, vitamin C, glutathione and CoQ10, and directly quenches reactive oxygen species (ROS). Since it has water-soluble, fat- soluble and sulfhydryl properties, it can be utilized by many di erent bodily tissues in a variety of ways. Its unique chemical properties allow ALA to support blood sugar balance already within normal levels. This formulation of Lipoic Acid contains 300 mg of ALA and 300 mcg of biotin to protect against loss of biotin as a result of the competition of the two.1
