Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant that works with the mitochondria — the body’s energy powerhouses — to boost metabolism, prevent inflammation, eliminate toxins and reverse some of the oxidative damage caused by aging. ALA enhances your cells’ ability to use glucose to produce energy. Greater energy expenditure tips the scales in your favor as you burn more fuel, helping you to reduce fat stores and rev up your metabolism. ALA is sometimes referred to as the universal antioxidant because it supports other antioxidants like vitamins C and E, and glutathione. ALA is involved in multiple antioxidant functions in virtually all body tissues, protecting your body’s organs and systems from damage so they can keep you fit and healthy. It is both water and fat soluble allowing it to cross cell membranes.
ALPHA-LIPOIC ACID IV TREATMENTS HAVE MANY BENEFITS
As an antioxidant, alpha-lipoic acid has many wellness benefits, including its ability to protect the body’s cells against free radicals, which are unstable molecules that naturally occur in our body that can damage proteins, DNA and cell membranes. Some benefits of an alpha-lipoic acid include:
• Weight loss
• Treatment of dementia and cognitive decline due to its ability to penetrate the blood brain barrier
• Liver health
• Vision health
• Restoration of other antioxidant levels
• Reduction in blood sugar levels by improving insulin sensitivity
• Symptom improvement in diabetic peripheral neuropathy
• Slows or stops cancer cell growth

Lipoic acid is a vitamin-like chemical and an antioxidant, so for most patients, it isn’t a risky supplement to take and the side effects are generally negligible. However, it’s still important to have a proper consultation with a professional before beginning lipoic acid supplementation/therapy.
It seems that lipoic acid helps prevent some kinds of cell damage in the body and can restore vitamin levels like levels of vitamin E and C.

With lipoic acid therapy, a patient may be able to boost his or her immunity, as there is some evidence that the therapy benefits the immune system, helping to regulate it and improving its function.
