Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a natural compound in our body. It is a fatty acid that cells use to produce energy and as an antioxidant.
It is available in various foods, but it is possible to obtain its benefits through intravenous therapy. By this, it reaches almost all the cells of the body, including the brain. In other words, it is an antioxidant for neurons.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant. The substance inhibits malignant cells that try to metastasize. Therefore, it is a supplement indicated in patients under chemotherapy.
Alpha Lipoic Acid reduces the presence of PCR in the body. This is a biomarker of inflammation. Less inflammation means less possibility of developing chronic pathologies.
As ALA has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB), it reaches the brain. It also acts on peripheral nerves, so it could slow the progression of neuropathies in hands and feet. This is a big problem for diabetic patients, for example.
The substance has been shown to improve cognitive abilities. There is an enhancement of memory and it is helping with Alzheimer’s disease.
