Bluebonnet Nutrition Alpha Lipoic Acid 100mg contains a pure crystalline alpha lipoic acid in it's purist most crystalline form. Alpha lipoic acid is a unique antioxidant that is both fat- and water-soluble, and is known for its free radical scavenger activity. Available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.

Antioxidants remove potentially damaging oxidizing agents - known as free radicals - from within the body. Free radicals can damage DNA, as well as proteins and lipids within cells, altering or inhibiting cellular function. They may be generated by strenuous physical activity; physiological processes, especially in defense against microbes and other foreign substances; and especially exposure to harmful environmental factors, such as smog, ozone, chemicals, drugs, smoking and radiation. Dietary antioxidants - which include carotenoids and vitamins E and C - help control or eliminate free radicals by donating electrons to cells throughout the body. This offsets the potential damage caused by free radicals and helps maintain cellular health.

Exogenous antioxidants are available through the diet and include amino acids (N-acetyl-L-cysteine, taurine and L-glutathione), carotenoids (beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin), minerals (selenium and zinc) and vitamins C and E. Endogenous antioxidants are produced in the body and include ubiquinone/ubiquinol (CoQ10), alpha lipoic acid and superoxide dismutase (SOD), the master cellular defense enzyme. However, supplementation of endogenous antioxidants is essential since many factors - the normal aging process, medications and oxidative stress - have been found to compromise their levels in the body.

Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid - also known as thioctic acid - is a vitamin-like natural antioxidant that is both fat- and water-soluble. Alpha lipoic acid is involved in energy production and aids in recycling the antioxidant vitamins C and E. There is also evidence that it is involved in glutathione production in the liver, supporting detoxification of the body. Dietary sources rich in alpha lipoic acid include flaxseeds, soybeans, pumpkin seeds, and flaxseed, canola and soybean oils.

As a dietary supplement, take one capsule daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
