Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) ‒ 6,8-dithio octanoic acid or shortly thioctic acid, is an organic compound containing sulphur which acts as a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions, also at the mitochondrial level. It used to be regarded as a vitamin, but now we know that it is synthesized in the human body system during the ongoing transformations of fatty acids. However, it is not difficult to guess that these quantities are negligible, and full effects resulting from the action of this compound can be observed only thanks to supplementation.
Strong antioxidant potential
Nowadays, ALA is considered to be the strongest known antioxidant. Providing its proper dose is important not only for athletes but also for all of us. Its action includes not only scavenging free radicals, which can be observed in the body system in even bigger quantities, but also it supports the activities of other antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E.
Moreover, the supplementation with alpha lipoic acid supports the natural detoxification processes, such as removing heavy metals from the body system and neutralizing toxins, which contributes to the improvement in general well-being, the appearance of skin, hair and nails as well as it can also inhibit ageing processes of cells.
Support for glucose balance
In scientific experiments it has been proved that ALA shows a specific effect, very similar to the effects of insulin hormone, so that it ensures the stability of blood glucose levels. This is of great importance both in diabetes prevention and during fat reduction as part of slimming process. A constant blood sugar, and hence no insulin secretion, reduces appetite as well as improves energy metabolism. Moreover, we can also observe an increase in the amount of energy consumed during the supplementation with ALA, because the sugar delivered is faster converted to glycogen and speeds up post-workout regeneration.
Healthy cardiovascular system
It has been demonstrated that the use of ALA supports the epithelium lining blood vessels. As a result of its actions, the vessels relax and blood pressure is reduced, which directly affects the reduction in accumulation of atherosclerotic platelets.
As it has already been mentioned above, ALA contributes to the improvement in the process of removing heavy metals and toxins that were provided with food and/or air, which leads to the improvement in the liver functioning and the regeneration of this organ. As a result, the liver is not as burdened as always, it can regenerate faster and quickly returns to good condition. In turn, a long-term supplementation with alpha-lipoic acid is able to almost completely reduce problems with overloading the liver with metabolites and toxins. To sum it all up, Scitec ALA is a product that on the one hand allows for efficient and effective supplementation supporting the biological processes in the human body system, while on the other hand it is considered by experts to be one of the best supplements of antioxidant effect in the world. What is more, ALA seems to be a necessary agent restoring the proper glucose-insulin balance, which is important not only for the athletes, but also for people being at risk of insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia or other sugar disorders.
