Alpha-lipoic acid was discovered over 40 years ago and was originally thought of as a vitamin; however when researchers found that our bodies could synthesize it, the status of ‘vitamin’ was lost. This substance has been considerable research and interest in the use of ALA. Our bodies are able to make ALA although a dietary source is still important, and it is found in almost all foods, especially in kidney, liver, spinach and broccoli.
Alpha-lipoic acid affects nearly every cell in the body. It helps all the B vitamins-including thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and niacin- to convert carbohydrates, protein and fats found in foods into energy that the body can store for later use. Alpha-lipoic acid is a cell-protecting antioxidant that may stimulate the body to recycle other antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, thereby boosting their potency.
