Alpha-lipoic acid

Alpha-lipoic acid, often abbreviated ALA:

  • is vital to cellular energy production by acting as a coenzyme in the citric acid cycle through which energy stored in nutritients is captured as chemical energy by the mitochondria in our cells (1-3), and
  • produces potent antioxidant actions that neutralizes the damage caused by free radicals (4-6).

ALA is a naturally occuring compound produced in the body and found in many foods from both plants and animals.
