Lipoic Acid 100 mg
Lipoic Acid capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain 100 mg of pure ALA. ALA is a non-vitamin coenzyme that carries out important metabolic and antioxidant functions in the body.
ALA is a nutritional coenzyme that participates in the energy metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, with a particular role in blood glucose disposal. It is also able to scavenge a number of free radicals. As both a fat and water-soluble, sulfur-containing coenzyme, ALA functions in the body as part of several multi-enzyme complexes located in the mitochondria.
ALA is essential for metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, for the conversion of their energy into ATP. Two of these enzyme complexes, pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) and alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase (KGDH) are part of the citric acid cycle (Krebs cycle), and as such assume a central role for general energy production.
ALA may be a beneficial dietary supplement for individuals who wish to supplement with lipoic acid.
