Alpha Lipoic Acid is a vitamin like chemical that is made in the body and is called an antioxidant. It is both fat and water soluble so it can work throughout the entire body. It is found in every cell in the body! (This makes it different from other antioxidants which are usually either fat soluble or water soluble, but not both.) It has been suggested that Alpha Lipoic Acid may promote antioxidant support.*** This means that Alpha Lpioic Acid may also support normal and healthy aging.***
Alpha Lipoic Acid also naturally occurs in in yeast, liver, spinach, broccoli & potatoes.

This means that it helps produce useable energy for the body from food.*** Alpha Lipoic Acid supplements may also support normal sugar metabolism***.
Because Alpha Lipoic Acid can work throughout the entire body it can easily pass into the brain. Alpha Lipoic Acid supplements support normal brain and nervous system health***.
