Alpha-Lipoic Acid tablets, provided by XT Medical, contain 100 mg of pure alpha-lipoic acid. Alpha-lipoic acid is a non-vitamin coenzyme that carries out important metabolic and antioxidant functions in the body.


ALA Medical supports liver health, immune system function, healthy circulation, clear vision, and glucose metabolism, as well as cardiovascular and neurological health. It’s an imperative factor of metabolic systems, and since it’s both fat- and water-soluble, it has exclusive characteristics and distinct benefits over other antioxidants.

FUNCTION

Antioxidants, Blood Sugar Metabolism, liver health, immune system, cardiovascular health, and vision

  • Enhances insulin sensitivity Metabolic Syndrome!
  • Antioxidant
  • Regenerates the antioxidant glutathione
  • Regenerates vitamin E, vitamin C and NAD
  • Modifies gene expression of some body systems
  • Decreases inflammation in the cell
  • Use it after stroke or heart attack for help against necrosis
  • Restores T cell function
  • Heavy metal chelator even better than EDTH it interacts with glutathione but also by itself.
  • Needed for food to energy
  • Optimize Exercise
  • It is a coenzyme for energy production

Nutrition

Alpha-lipoic acid is a nutritional coenzyme that is involved in energy metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, has physiological functions in blood glucose disposal, and is able to scavenge a number of free radicals. Alpha-lipoic acid is a fat- and water-soluble, sulfurcontaining coenzyme. It functions in the body much like a B-vitamin, since it is involved in energy production.

As part of several multi-enzyme complexes located in the mitochondria, alpha-lipoic acid is essential for metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and for the conversion of their energy into ATP. Two of these enzyme complexes, PDH (pyruvate dehydrogenase) and alpha-KGDH (alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase) are part of the citric acid cycle (Krebs cycle), and as such assume a central role for general energy production. Another lipoic acid containing enzyme complex, BCKADH (branched-chain keto-acid dehydrogenase), is involved in deriving energy from the branched chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

A related metabolic function of alpha-lipoic acid is its role in blood glucose disposal. This important coenzyme appears to be necessary for the normal transport of blood glucose into the cell. This may be explained by its functions in the glucosemetabolizing enzymes, PDH and alpha-KGDH, but some researchers suspect a more direct role in cellular glucose uptake at the cell membrane.

As early as 1959, alpha-lipoic acid was suggested to be an antioxidant, since it could extend the actions of vitamin C in guinea pigs, and those of vitamin E in rats. It is only recently, however, that the specific actions of alpha-lipoic acid in free radical quenching, metal chelation, and antioxidant regeneration have been investigated.

Supplement Facts

Benefit

Alpha-lipoic acid may be a beneficial dietary supplement for those concerned about a more complete antioxidant defense system and maintaining proper glucose metabolism. Dietary and supplementary alpha-lipoic acid is efficiently absorbed, transported to the tissues, and readily taken up by the cells.

Dosage

As a dietary supplement, adults take 1 to 2 tablets daily, or as directed by your healthcare professional.

Recommendations

Keep out of reach of children.

For optimal storage conditions, store in a cool, dry place. (59º-77ºF/15º-25ºC) (35-65% relative humidity)

Contains

Cellulose, Stearic Acid, Silica, Magnesium Stearate

Warnings

Tamper resistant package, do not use if outer seal is missing.
