Alpha Lipoic Acid

What is Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)? It’s called the Universal Antioxidant because it is both water- and fat-soluble, so it can neutralize dangerous free radicals in nearly every tissue in a healthy body.

A small amount of ALA is made naturally in the body, but the rest of what you need must come from eating red meat, organ meats and brewer’s yeast, or from dietary supplements. Since the amount of ALA available in dietary supplements is as much as 1,000 times greater than what you can obtain in a normal diet, ALA experts recommend daily supplementation with high-quality ALA.
