Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA or thioctic acid) is a fatty acid that is both produced by the body and absorbed from the foods you eat. When it binds to certain proteins, ALA plays an important role in your metabolism – namely the Kreb’s cycle, which is your body’s main process for converting carbohydrates into energy. ALA acts as a synergist with B vitamins to help in the production of energy from the proteins, carbohydrates and fats you consume via your diet.
When you supplement ALA there’s an excess of it in your system, ALA does not bind to protein and acts as an antioxidant. When in this “free” state, ALA deactivates a wide variety of free radicals (such as heavy metals) circulating through your body and reduces oxidative cellular damage. Because we produce less ALA as we age, researchers believe that taking a supplement may help slow the aging process. Unlike other antioxidants, ALA is both water and fat soluble, enabling it to work throughout the body.
Studies have found that ALA improves several components of the metabolic syndrome with a positive effect on your insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism. It also lowers triglycerides and increases high-density lipoprotein (HDL).
Recent studies have shown that ALA’s antioxidant effect might be helpful with improvement of vigour in case of problems related to diabetes or pre-diabetes.
New evidence suggests that lipoic acid can play a preventative role against ageing’s more unpleasant accompaniments. Scientists believe that lipoic acid may increase the production of acetylcholine, an essential nervous system messenger that is deficient in the brains of those with age-related brain and memory diseases.
