WHY IT’S TIME TO PAY ATTENTION TO ALA
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is produced in small quantities in both animal and human bodies. It is soluble in oil and water which increases its bioavailability. It is an essential nutrient that is advised to be supplemented since it is produced so little.
AMAZING BENEFITS OF ALA
A potent antioxidant produced in cells that reduces oxidative stress, ALA is also vital in intracellular signaling.
Being dually soluble, ALA provides immediate free radical protection.
BENEFITS FOR DIABETES
Supplementing with ALA has been proven to help diabetes symptoms, as it supports insulin sensitivity in diabetics.
WEIGHT LOSS BENEFITS
Although results have been inconclusive, it is theoretically proven that ALA may help in losing weight. This is achieved by ALA suppressing the activity of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), which causes hunger.
