Alpha-Lipoic Acid

Just about everyone has heard of antioxidants and the health benefits that they provide to the body. One such antioxidant - alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) - is a compound that’s found in many vegetables that help combat the damaging effects of free radicals and fight inflammation.

One of the most important uses of ALA is to fight diabetes. 

  • ALA is effective in helping to improve insulin sensitivity
  • Protects against metabolic syndrome  
  • Lower blood sugar levels.

Used in supplement form, ALA can help alleviate many of the symptoms and complications related to diabetes such as:

  • Nerve damage,
  • Cardiovascular issues
  • Disorders of the eyes
  • Numbness of the extremities
  • Pain and swelling. 

Other health benefits of taking ALA supplements include:

  • Preventing memory loss
  • Preserving eye health
  • Protecting skin from damage.

Dosage: 

  • A dosage between 50 to 100 mg of ALA is generally recommended.
  • For those with diabetes, a much higher dose of between 600 to 800 mg is suggested
  • As high as 1,800mg may be recommended for those with neuropathy
