Controlled-Release Alpha-Lipoic Acid

A whole-body antioxidant that helps to maintain healthy, well-functioning cells.

    ALA Extended Release is designed to neutralize free radicals and has the ability to destroy free radicals in both the water-based and lipid-based portion of cells. In addition, ALA Extended Release helps the body synthesize glutathione, the body’s own master detoxifier.

    ALA Extended Release also “recharges” other important antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, and CoQ10, giving them the ability to continue fighting free radicals for extended periods of time.

    In addition, biotin supports the function of alpha-lipoic acid in regulating glucose metabolism.

      ALA Extended Release is an eight-carbon disulfide water- and fat-soluble compound that is synthesized in small quantities in the liver and other tissues.

      Oral supplementation readily crosses the blood brain barrier after it is absorbed in the small intestine, goes into the portal vein, and is distributed via systemic circulation.

        Once in the tissues, ALA can be found inside and outside the cells including inside the mitochondria where it functions naturally as a coenzyme for the oxidation of pyruvate, alpha ketoglutarate, and branched-chain amino acids.*

          Researchers recently identified lipoic acid’s mechanisms of action related to maintaining metabolic health.

          Controlled-release technology supports efficacy of alpha-lipoic acid in helping to maintain blood sugar already in the normal range.

          Data from a 12-week clinical study indicate that supplementation with ALA Extended Release (1200 mg per day, divided doses) may support healthy C-peptide levels. C-peptide is used as an indication of insulin sensitivity.*

          Alpha-lipoic acid effectively neutralizes a variety of free radicals, including oxygen radicals and ionized metals. This action is particularly beneficial for people who have higher levels of oxidative stress.

          Alpha lipoic acid regenerates vitamins C and E, increases tissue levels of glutathione, and helps maintain the proper ratio of reduced to oxidized coenzyme Q10 in the mitochondria.

          In addition, alpha-lipoic acid may help the body rid itself of heavy metals.*
