Douglas Laboratories Lipoic Acid for antioxidant support. Lipoic acid contains pure alpha-lipoic acid, a non-vitamin enzyme that is responsible for important antioxidant and metabolic functions in the body. This nutritional coenzyme is involved in energy metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates and plays a role in blood glucose disposal. It is both water and fat soluble and contains sulfur and serves as part of a number of multi-enzyme complexes in the mitochondria. Its ability to scavenge free radicals in nearly all body tissues has earned it the title of universal antioxidant. It extends vitamins C and E activity and can regenerate glutathione. Recommended use: Take 1 capsule 1 to 2 times daily or as directed by a healthcare professional.
