Alpha-Lipoic Acid Alpha-Lipoic Acid

Antioxidant Coenzyme

What is it?

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a coenzyme that is capable of fighting free radicals in both fatty and water-based environments. This makes Alpha-Lipoic Acid a very potent anti-oxidant that can help fight some of the ills of aging. Alpha-Lipoic Acid also has several potential benefits for diabetics. It enhances glucose uptake in non insulin-dependent diabetes and inhibits glycosylation (the abnormal attachment of sugar to protein). It has also been used to improve diabetic nerve damage and reduce pain associated with that nerve damage. Preliminary evidence also indicates improvement in the visual function for people who suffer from glaucoma. As for body-builders, Alpha-Lipoic Acid increases the levels of intra-cellular glutathione, which has been shown to enhance recovery from heavy training by reducing intra-cellular damage. It also mimicks insulin which can enhance muscle cell nutrient uptake and protein turnover.

What does it do?

  • Potent antioxidant
  • Insulin mimicker

Dosage Recommendation Take one capsule 2-3 times per day with meals.

Who Should Not Take It?

Consult with a physician prior to use if you are suffering from any medical condition, including, but not limited to diabetes, heart disease or hypertension. Do not use if pregnant or lactating.

R-Alpha Lipoic Acid AST
R-Alpha Lipoic Acid

Mimics Insulin
Powerful Antioxidant
Enhances Glucose Utilization
Enhance Amino Acid Transport
Lowers Blood Sugar
Increases Creatine Uptake

R-ALA is a potent and effective "universal" antioxidant.* It quenches free radicals in virtually all tissues in the body. R-ALA also exhibits insulin-like effects allowing greater nutrient uptake into muscle tissue. R-ALA 200 uses the more effective "r" isomer for a potent, very efficient and effective performance nutrient. R-ALA increases your muscles uptake of glycogen. This increases muscle cell volume and contributes to that full pumped feeling when you workout. This is a very desirable effect as the increase in muscle glycogen also increases other important nutrient transport that contributes to cell volume and muscle growth.

R-ALA is not a thermogenic but it does appear to contribute to favorable body composition changes. This is believed to be due to a nutrient partitioning effect where nutrients are channeled more to lean tissue and away from fat tissue. R-ALA will help enhance the efficiency of many different supplements. One in particular is Creatine HSC. R-ALA will help enhance the absorption of creatine into the muscle cell by providing a transport vehicle by its unique ability to mimic insulin. R-ALA should be taken in a capsule form and not in a pre-mixed powder.

Alpha Lipoic Acid Antioxidants

When you exercise intensely, your muscle tissues and overall health can be negatively affected by free-radical damage. Alpha-lipoic acid is a coenzyme that is a very effective antioxidant, which means this supplement has the capability of fighting free radicals in the body. Alpha-lipoic acid is sometimes considered the "universal" antioxidant because it is both fat and water soluble.

Alpha Lipoic AcidALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid)

ALA™ is a high quality source of the intermediary metabolite alpha lipoic acid. This key nutrient is very beneficial to the hard training athlete from two very important perspectives.

Alpha lipoic acid has been shown to have powerful antioxidant properties. By fighting free radical damage and strengthening the cellular integrity this action helps to prevent the potential damaging effects of physical stress.* This is an important consideration for athletes who want to maximize their growth potential and minimize the catabolic consequences of physical training.

The alpha lipoic acid in ALA™ has also been shown to be an effective glucose driver pushing the uptake of energizing carbohydrate into the muscle cell. This action helps to accelerate recovery and promotes the anabolic effects of intracellular glycogen uptake.

ALA™ supplementation has been shown to:

  • Exhibit powerful antioxidant activity supporting Vitamin C&E at the cellular level helping to protect cellular integrity.
  • Enhance glucose uptake into the muscle cell which helps to accelerate recovery and increase glycogen storage.
