ALA is the only antioxidant that is both fat and water soluble. This is important because this allows it access to all parts of the cell which gives it tremendous ability to trap free radicals wherever they may be.An antioxidant is any chemical, natural or synthetic, that neutralizes toxins or free radicals, thus protecting our cells from damage.
ALA is one of the very few substances that can actually cross the blood/brain barrier to enter the brain and protect the cells directly where needed the most. It has been demonstrated that not only does ALA enter the brain, ALA supplementation causes increased levels of Glutathione in the brain. This is important as glutathione protects the brain from free radical damage, and low levels of glutathione in the brain are associated with brain disorders such as stroke, dementia, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
Normally once an antioxidant has eliminated a free radical, it is lost forever. Lipoic acid is the only antioxidant with the unique ability to regenerate/recycle itself, and other antioxidants such as vitamins C & E, so that they can continue destroying free radicals. Alpha Lipoic Acid speeds the removal of glucose (sugar) from the blood which accounts for the profound benefits seen by diabetics as well as its reputation for fat loss.
ALA is also crucial for energy production. It helps break down sugar for the production of ATP, the fuel used by cells to keep the body running.
ALL ALAs ARE NOT THE SAME
There are two types of ALA, R-ALA and S-ALA. R-ALA contains the "R" form of Alpha Lipoic Acid, the form found naturally occurring in the body. S-ALA contains the "S" form of ALA which is a synthetic that can actually interfere with the action of R-ALA, according to studies.
The standard ALA sold today is a mixture of 50% S-ALA and 50% R-ALA, mostly because the process used to create pure R-ALA is more complicated and expensive. A number of researchers have stated that R-ALA is up to 12 times as effective as standard ALA.In addition, R-ALA Edge contains the stabilized, bioenhanced form of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, which is up to 40 times more bioavailable than unstabilized R-ALA. While R-ALA may initially appear to be more expensive than standard ALA, upon closer examination R-ALA is a much better value.
