Alpha Lipoic Acid by Pure Encapsulations (Healthcare Practitioner Brand) is an exceptionally effective nutrient which is both fat and water soluble and which operates in almost every part of the body. The body can create alpha lipoic acid, but sometimes in inadequate quantities for proper functioning. It is considered a potent antioxidant to fight free radicals. It synergestically enhances the activity of vitamins C and E.
Alpha lipoic acid is a critical part of the metabolic process in that it produces energy for muscle activity and it is responsible for converting calories into energy production within the cell. It also helps maintain normal levels of blood sugar, supports normal liver capacity and supports the nervous system generally.
