Who should take lipoic acid?
It’s often taken orally by diabetic patients suffering from nerve-related symptoms like numbness and pain in the arms and/or legs. It can be given as an injection too. Lipoic acid may improve blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics, but there is conflicting evidence about this. There are other uses for lipoic acid, such as possibly controlling cholesterol, and it may also help reduce body weight in overweight adults.
There is some evidence to support that lipoic acid therapy may reduce nerve damage caused by chemotherapy, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, help with erectile dysfunction, help with heart failure, help with migraines, and help in many other areas around health and wellness. There’s even some evidence that lipoic acid can boost the immune system.
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.
What does lipoic acid do for the body? What are some lipoic acid benefits?
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. There’s some evidence that lipoic acid can improve the function and conduction of neurons for diabetic patients. As an antioxidant, lipoic acid may have certain benefits for the brain and in helping with certain liver diseases. It may also help in lowering total cholesterol and bad cholesterol.
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. It may prevent inflammatory responses in the body, restore/improve immune system cell function, and even help to regulate the brain’s immune system responses to some viruses. This research is somewhat limited, but the possible benefits of lipoic acid therapy can be great. We’re very happy to be able to provide it to you here at Mediworks Rejuvenation Centre!
