In this video, we’re going to talk about alpha lipoic acid and the benefits of alpha lipoic acid. 

What is alpha lipoic acid?
Your body makes alpha lipoic acid, you can get it as a supplement, and it’s in foods like red meat and certain vegetables. When you take alpha lipoic acid as a supplement, you’re getting a lot more of it—like 1000x more than your body can make. 

Alpha lipoic acid is a very powerful antioxidant. If you’re a diabetic, alpha lipoic acid can protect the tissues from that. It can also help with damage within the mitochondria. Alpha lipoic acid acts as a sponge to soak up free-radicals and protect against oxidation. 

Alpha lipoic acid can act as a chelator to help detoxify mercury from the body, which can also produce oxidation. Alpha lipoic acid is also a lipid antioxidant, so it’s good for areas of the body that are lined with lipids (like your nerves).

More alpha lipoic acid benefits:

• It’s good for diabetic neuropathy 
• It counters oxidation and free radicals 
• It crosses the blood-brain barrier 
• It protects the myelin sheath 
• It helps mitochondria make more energy 
• It lowers A1C 

Alpha lipoic acid dosage:

If you’re going to take alpha lipoic acid as a supplement, try taking 600mg, 3 times a day, on an empty stomach.
