Life Extension Super-Alpha Lipoic Acid with Biotin is a potent antioxidant. It enhances glutathione, promotes liver and nerve health, and has metal chelating properties. Replenishes vitamins C & E, CoQ10, and SOD. Creates energy from food and oxygen.

Used often in Europe, alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant with demonstrated ability to promote liver and nerve health, and helps to fight off oxidation. Alpha-lipoic acid increases glutathione levels in cells currently within a healthy range, and boasts powerful antioxidant effects.125-127

Studies have shown that cellular oxidative deterioration, aggravated by free radicals, is responsible for many degenerative complications. Alpha-lipoic acid is so effective because it is able to destroy free radicals in both aqueous and lipid environments. It also has metal chelating ability, helping the body rid itself of accumulated ingested toxins.128-131

Among the most valuable benefits of alpha-lipoic acid is its capability to replenish other vital antioxidants including vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10, and glutathione, and the actions of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx). The evidence is notably compelling for the capability of DHLA (dihydrolipoic acid, a lessened variety of alpha-lipoic acid) to reuse vitamin E. This is probably accomplished directly by destroying tocopherol radicals or indirectly by decreasing vitamin C or boosting the levels of ubiquinol (a derivative of CoQ10) and glutathione, that, in turn, helps replenish tissue levels of vitamin E.132,135-141
