Product details "Alpha-Lipoic Acid with Biotin"
Health benefits at a glance:

First of all, what is alpha-lipoic acid? Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant produced naturally in the body. It can also be obtained from healthy foods like spinach, broccoli, and beets. (1)

Being successfully used in Europe, Alpha-lipoic acid can support energy production and sugar metabolism and, by binding to metals, help your body get rid of ingested toxins

According to research, damage caused by free radicals is a major issue that leads to the aging of our organs. Alpha-lipoic acid can be very effective in eliminating free radicals and, by extension, delaying the aging process


Why it works

Alpha-lipoic acid has been called the universal antioxidant due to its ability to act in both, the extra-cellular fluid and the cell, and can boost glutathione levels (2). This antioxidant may also provide benefits for the liver, nerves and can protect against oxidation

It can also promote the healthy function of mitochondria, your cells’ energy generators. Research indicates that lipoic acid supplementation can help support the body’s ability to process blood sugars and insulin, and support nerve health. (3)

This formula also contains biotin, a B-vitamin that complements lipoic acid’s role in supporting metabolic health. (4)


The science behind the product:

One of the most beneficial activities of alpha-lipoic acid is to enhance the functions of other essential antioxidants, by recycling them. 

This seems to be achieved by, for example, quenching tocopherol radicals or by reducing vitamin C, or increasing the levels of ubiquinol (a derivative of CoQ10) and glutathione. 

These steps help to regenerate vitamin E. In clinical studies, there have been no reported serious side effects, even at high doses. 

Some patients have experienced allergic skin reactions and possible hypoglycemia in diabetics. R-lipoic acid is biologically more active than alpha-lipoic acid, with slightly higher costs.

Lipoic acid is a tried-and-true supplement that has been around a long time. Many clinical studies have validated its benefits. For instance, it’s been shown to improve markers of metabolic health and to support the health of the delicate cells that line the inside of blood vessels called endothelial cells. (5,6)

Get the antioxidant benefits of alpha-lipoic acid with the added support of biotin in a twice-a-day capsule form to promote liver and nerve health and protect against oxidation.
