More Insulin = More Fat

insulin and fat

You know those who claim to have been blessed with a “fast” metabolism? Yes, they bug us, too….. It seems some have innate systems that allow them to process sugars, starches, fats and calories more efficiently. With the holiday season upon us, an efficient calorie and fat burning system is on many of our wish lists.

What you may not know is that your entire metabolic system may not be to blame for that layer of fat you can’t seem to banish – the culprit may be insulin sensitivity.

<div class=”callout”>Insulin is a hormone that regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.</div>

Whenever you eat carbohydrates or protein, the level of sugar in your blood increases. In healthy individuals, insulin is released from the pancreas to remove the excess sugar from the blood, which otherwise would be toxic. This sugar is then used for energy. If your body is not responding properly to the insulin (poor insulin sensitivity), it begins to over-produce insulin in order to keep blood sugar levels in check. This can be the thing standing between you and your fat loss goals, because insulin has a powerful ability to prevent the breakdown of fat.

More Insulin Equals More Fat

What can you do to improve your insulin sensitivity? Fitness professionals have relied on one particular supplement for years. Some would say it’s one of the best kept secrets to weight management…. R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (or R-ALA).

Multiple placebo controlled studies have shown that daily doses of 600 mg to 1800 mg of ALA can improve insulin sensitivity and the utilization of glucose, ultimately leading to healthy blood sugar levels.

ALA may also go a step further and help prevent the complications that are associated with unhealthy blood sugar levels, specifically complications in the vascular system and kidneys. Recent research indicates this reduced threat of complication comes from ALA’s ability to protect the inner lining of blood vessels (the endothelium) from damage caused by oxidative stress.

It’s important to note that all R-ALA supplements are not created equal. Research shows that R -Alpha Lipoic Acid is a more biologically active form of ALA that offers greater antioxidant and neuroprotective benefits at substantially lower doses than the “S” form of alpha lipoic acid that is more commonly available. The body has a strong preference for natural R-ALA. Be sure to look for this when comparing supplements. Lypo-Spheric™ R-ALA uses the more bioavailable, “R” form of alpha lipoic acid, the form found in nature.

In addition to increasing insulin sensitivity, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) is one of the body’s most powerful intracellular and extracellular antioxidants. Known as the Universal Antioxidant, R-ALA directly affects the health of nearly every cell in the body, and can even cross the blood-brain barrier. The “R” form of ALA is considered the most bioavailable and biologically active form of ALA in the body. LypriCel™ R-ALA delivers high-quality R-ALA in every packet, neutralizing free radicals in nearly every part of the body.

Give the gift of healthy to nearly every part of the body this holiday season with Lypo-Spheric R-ALA. The heart, brain, eyes and waistline will all thank you for improved insulin sensitivity and reduced damage from free radicals.

Four Key Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid

When you hear the name “Alpha Lipoic Acid,” does it sound familiar, but you don’t quite know what it is?  Well, you’re not alone.  Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) often plays the role of the supporting actress – it’s a highly versatile antioxidant that’s found in nearly everything, yet is largely underappreciated. Although ALA has enjoyed periods of fame, most notably a mention on Dr. Oz earlier this year, it is often upstaged by more popular antioxidants like Vitamin C.

We happen to believe ALA may just be the most important substance you have never heard of, and it’s time to give it the attention it deserves!

To start, you should know that Alpha Lipoic Acid goes by several names and abbreviations, including ALA, Lipoic Acid, LA, Thioctic Acid, Lipoate, and α-lipoic acid.  Although less commonly used, Alpha Lipoic Acid may also be referred to as 6,8-thioctic acid, 6,8-dithioctane acid, 1,2-dithiol-3-valeric acid, and DHLA.

Now, here are four great reasons to know and love Alpha Lipoic Acid:

ALA = Energy

We all need energy, especially cellular energy. Cellular energy is the power behind every single action within the human body, including muscle movement, generation of new cells, wound healing, and even thinking.  You are using valuable cellular energy right now, just by reading this article!

The body’s supply of cellular energy starts in the mitochondria of the cells.  There are thousands of mitochondria in most eukaryotic cells (cells with nuclei) within the body, and they are constantly creating energy through a process known as the Krebs Cycle.  ALA is an important cofactor to two key enzymatic reactions within this Cycle. To put it simply, without ALA, cellular energy is not possible.  And without cellular energy, life is not possible.

ALA and Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

Another important characteristic of ALA is its effect on insulin, and the body’s use of blood sugar (glucose). Multiple placebo controlled studies have shown that daily doses of 600 mg to 1800 mg of ALA can improve insulin sensitivity and the utilization of glucose, ultimately leading to healthy blood sugar levels.

ALA may also go a step further and help prevent the complications that are associated with unhealthy blood sugar levels, specifically complications in the vascular system and kidneys. Recent research indicates this reduced threat of complication comes from ALA’s ability to protect the inner lining of blood vessels (the endothelium) from damage caused by oxidative stress.

ALA is a Key Factor in Optimal Nerve Health

In Germany, ALA has been approved as a treatment for diabetic neuropathy – a debilitating condition that causes painful burning sensations in the arms and legs, and eventually leads to a loss of nerve function.   Although most of the studies related to this treatment have used intravenous (IV) ALA, a placebo controlled study using oral ALA demonstrated that symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, including pain, stinging and burning sensations, were reduced when taking single doses of 600 mg, 1200 mg or 1800 mg per day for 5 weeks.

ALA is an Important Part of Your Weight-Loss Plan

Every year, thousands of different supplements, gym memberships, pharmaceutical drugs, books, and medical treatments are used by people trying to lose weight.  In 2012, the annual revenue of the USA weight-loss industry was an estimated $20 billion. Clearly, managing a healthy weight is an issue many people struggle with.

Alpha Lipoic Acid cannot magically make cheeseburgers as nutritious as carrots, but it does have an effect on how our bodies use food and excess fat.  Recent research showed that overweight individuals who took 1,800 mg ALA every day for 20 weeks lost more weight than subjects who did not take ALA. It all comes down to cellular energy.  By supporting the creation of energy within the cells, ALA can help stimulate the body to use food molecules more quickly and burn excess calories from fat.

Choosing the Right Form of Alpha Lipoic Acid

ALA can be found in oral supplements in two forms: the R form, which is the form found in nature, or the S form. The R form of ALA is more bioavailable and biologically active than S-ALA, but it is expensive to produce and often presents stability issues in manufacturing. This is why many ALA supplements contain only the S form, or a 50/50 mixture of S-ALA and R-ALA (also referred to as racemic ALA).

In most cases, only 50% of the total dose of supplements labeled as Alpha Lipoic Acid or R/S Lipoic Acid is the R form.  Because R-ALA has only recently become available in a stabilized format, most clinical research has been conducted using intravenous or oral mixtures of R/S ALA.  This is important to consider when choosing how much ALA to take.  For example, when clinical evidence suggests 600 mg of racemic ALA per day can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, this dose would be equivalent to 300 mg of R-ALA.

Liposome encapsulated R-ALA may also offer further benefits to the absorption and utilization of R-ALA in the body.  ALA pills, powders and capsules are rapidly, but incompletely absorbed into the blood, and then quickly used by the body or passed as waste.  With Liposomal Encapsulation Technology, R-ALA is encapsulated and protected from destruction in the digestive system by microscopic liposomes.  Since liposomes are made of phospholipids (the same material that makes up your cellular membrane), they are capable of passing through cell membranes and delivering R-ALA directly into the cell.

WHY YOU NEED LYPO-SPHERIC™ R-ALA

Along with experts like Burt Berkson, MD, PhD and Lester Packer, PhD, we believe R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) may be the most important antioxidant ever discovered.

R-ALA directly affects the health of nearly every cell in the body, and can even cross the blood-brain barrier. This means R-ALA can neutralize free radicals in nearly every part of the body.

Reducing the damage caused by free radicals is the key to aging gracefully, and maintaining the health of your heart, brain, eyes, and every other organ in the body.

Lypo-Spheric™ R-ALA

  • Promotes, maintains and supports cellular energy production*
  • Recycles other vital antioxidants, including vitamin C and vitamin E
  • Helps maintain optimal nerve health*
  • Helps maintain healthy glucose levels*
  • Promotes healthy insulin sensitivity*
  • Supports weight-loss when combined with a low calorie diet*

Lypo-Spheric™ R-ALA uses the more bioavailable, “R” form of alpha lipoic acid, the form found in nature. Research shows that R -Alpha Lipoic Acid is a more biologically active form of ALA that offers greater antioxidant and neuroprotective benefits at substantially lower doses than the “S” form of lipoic acid that is more commonly available.* The body has a strong preference for natural R-ALA.

Liposomal Alpha Lipoic Acid Benefits and Facts

Here is a quick list of Alpha Lipoic Acid benefits and facts. LivOn Labs has successfully encapsulated Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) and we are excited to tell you all about it!

  • Also known as: Thioctic acid, Lipoic Acid, LA, ALA
  • ALA was discovered in 1948 and officially named Alpha Lipoic Acid in 1951 by Irwin C. Gunsalus and Lester Reed
  • ALA is naturally synthesized in small amounts by plants and animals, including humans.
  • ALA contains an asymmetric carbon, meaning there are two possible isomers: R-LA and S-LA. Only the R- isomer is endogenously synthesized and bound to protein. R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is considered the most bio-available and biologically active form of ALA in the body
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid is a vital cofactor for several important mitochondrial enzyme complexes.
  • The amounts of R-ALA available in dietary supplements are as much as 1,000 times greater than the amounts that could be obtained in the diet.  Animal tissue that includes R-ALA include liver, heart and kidney. Plants with R-ALA include spinach and broccoli, tomatoes, peas and Brussels sprouts.
  • Plasma concentrations of ALA generally peak in an hour or less and decline rapidly.
  • In cells, ALA is quickly reduced to DHLA.
  • ALA functions as an antioxidant.
  • ALA is considered the most important mitochondrial antioxidant given its vital role in mitochondrial electron transport reactions that convert glucose into ATP to produce energy.
  • Recycles other antioxidants, including vitamin C and vitamin E.
  • Shown to increase natural glutathione synthesis in aged animals.
  • There is no documented “nutrient deficiency” disease associated with ALA.
  • Intravenous ALA is approved for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy in Germany. R-ALA is available by prescription in Germany.  Dosage used in a trial with 1,258 diabetic patients found that a treatment of 600mg/day if IV R-ALA for 3 weeks significantly reduced the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy to a clinically meaningful degree.[1]
  • R-ALA should always be taken on an empty stomach.
  • Most frequently reported side effects of oral ALA supplementation include rashes, hives, itching, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. These generally occur when supplementing at doses of 1,200 – 1,800 mg/day.
  • ALA should be taken under the guidance of a physician by anyone taking glucose lowering medication or receiving treatment for under-active or over-active thyroid.
  • ALA should not be taken by children under the age of 18, unless under the care of a physician.
  • “Without ALA, you could not obtain energy from the food you eat, and you could not stay alive.” Burt Berkson, MD, MS, PhD

Identifying High-Quality Liposomal Supplements

We have spent years researching the best formulation techniques and manufacturing processes for liposome encapsulated supplements. As part of this research, we analyze every liposomal supplement we come across.  This is what we’ve learned so far…

Liposomal Supplements Must Use Phospholipids Suitable for Making Liposomes.

In order to make strong, stable liposomes that can encapsulate nutrients and not “break apart” too easily, it is important to use Phospholipids from highly refined sources that have a natural mix of phospholipids, including a high percentage of Phosphatidylcholine (PC) and Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE).

Some products are made with low-quality soy lecithin, which does not have the proper percentage of PC or PE to make liposomes.  This type of lecithin is typically used as a food additive, and should not be used in liposomal supplements.

We have always found that Phospholipids extracted from non-GMO soy lecithin work the best for high-quality, affordable liposomal supplements.  While a very high intake of unrefined soy ingested as food may contain tiny amounts of undesirable substances, the intake of highly refined and purified phospholipids derived from soy lecithin does not pose such a risk. In fact, we have not found any evidence of anyone being harmed by the regular intake of phospholipids extracted from non-GMO soy lecithin.

 Liposomal Supplements Must Have at Least an Equal Ratio of Phospholipids to Key Nutrients.

We have analyzed many commercial and homemade products, and found that most of them are of poor quality. Some are merely emulsions.  This means the nutrients are simply mixed with a small amount of low quality phospholipids or lecithin, and there are very few liposomes, if any at all.

One indicator of an emulsion is the amount of phospholipids or lecithin in the product.  For proper liposome encapsulation, you must have at least an equal amount of phospholipids and nutrients.  If the phospholipids or lecithin are listed as “Other Ingredients”, it is very likely there is not enough material to create any liposomes, even if the production process is otherwise appropriate.

Some companies choose to make emulsions and call them “Liposomal Supplements” because they are easy and inexpensive to produce.   Whether they believe they have products that are legitimately encapsulated in liposomes is unknown.

If you take an emulsion that contains lecithin and a nutrient like vitamin C, you may see overall good results since both components are excellent supplements individually.  You will not, however, be able to experience the potentially exceptional results offered by products using real Liposome Encapsulation Technology.

Liposomal Supplements Must Be Protected from Oxygen.

Liposomes are a natural fit for water-soluble nutrients that are not otherwise bioavailable.  But the process of making stable, quality liposomes is tricky.  Liposomes are sensitive to things like heat and oxygen.  The inherent stability (and in some cases instability), of the phospholipids and each nutrient also play an important role in the overall stability of liposomal products.  Getting all of these things exactly right, then assuring the liposomes and nutrients remain stable throughout the product’s shelf life is key.

One way to enhance the stability of a liposomal product is through uni-dose packaging.  Many of the liposomal products we have analyzed are stored in jars, plastic bottles, or even capsules within bottles.  Opening the bottle to remove the product exposes the remaining product to heat, light and oxygen.  This can be detrimental to the liposomes, and can cause rapid degradation of the nutrients.

Uni-dose packaging protects the product from oxygen until moments before it’s consumed, keeping it safe and effective throughout the shelf-life of the product.

 Three More Signs of a Low-Quality Liposomal Supplement:

  1. Consistency. If the product is very watery, it is most likely due to an insufficient amount of phospholipids or the use of low quality phospholipids.
  2. Uniformity. If the product separates into layers, it is a strong indicator the liposomal mixture is deteriorating. On the other hand, if there are noticeable lumps or the product feels gritty, it is a sign that the nutrients are coming out of the liposomes and forming crystals.
  3. Size. If the volume of the dosage is too small, there are not enough phospholipids and water to make proper liposomes.  For example, 1,000mg of vitamin C and 1,000mg of phospholipids, along with the necessary amount of water for proper liposome formation, will fill a teaspoon (5mL).  It is not likely this amount of material could fit into one or even two large-sized capsules.

The Bottom Line

There are a plethora of liposomal supplements to choose from.  Some are great, many are not.  The key is finding the liposomal supplements that work best for you – from a company you can trust. LivOn Labs offers a 100% Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee so you can try the Lypo-Spheric™ products for yourself.  If you are not satisfied, at any time, return the unused portion – or even the empty carton – and we will refund every penny you paid.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) Benefits

R-ALA has many benefits. It is unique that it is both fat and water soluble while other notable vitamins such as vitamin C are only water soluble. This is important because ALA or Alpha Lipoic Acid has the ability to access all parts of the cell. This increases its antioxidant properties granting it the ability to trap free radicals wherever they may be hiding.

What are Free Radicals?

To understand free radicals, you must first understand a bit about cells and molecules. Here is a great article on What are Free Radicals? however what you need to know is that free radicals are formed when an odd, unpaired electron splits. Free radicals are very unstable and react quickly with other compounds. Generally, free radicals attack the nearest stable molecule, stealing its electron. So you can see that having many free radicals can create chaos on your body at a cellular level.

R-ALA Benefits?

  1. Powerful antioxidant, which protect the body against these destructive free radicals. Antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, Glutathione and R-ALA neutralize free radicals by donating one of their own electrons. This ends the electron stealing and stabilizes molecules. So wait, wouldn’t the antioxidant become a free radical since it lost an electron? No, these antioxidants are stable in either form. They act as philanthropists, donating electrons to prevent cellular damage and disease.
  2. Crosses the blood/brain barrier – R-Alpha Lipic Acid (R-ALA) is one of the very few substances that can cross the blood/brain barrier. This allows R-ALA to enter the brain and assist in eliminating free radicals. Even more, Alpha Lipoic Acid supplementation causes increased levels of Glutathione, which is another powerful antioxidant. Glutathione protects the brain from free radical damage and low levels of Glutathione has been associated with brain disorders however research continues to better understand the connection between the two.
  3. Recycles itself – Like Glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid is able to recycle itself. When an antioxidant neutralizes a free radical, it is lost forever. R-ALA has the unique ability to regenerate itself, as well as other antioxidants such as vitamin C, so they can continue to destroy free radicals. R-ALA is the medic in the field, ensuring its soldiers can continue to win the war against free radical damage.

R-ALA continues to be studied extensively with published studies championing its incredible restorative properties. R-ALA has even been used by professional bodybuilders to build lean muscle mass.
