Thioctic Acid, also referred to as alpha lipoic acid, is an antioxidant that is made by the body, and is present in every one of your body cells, where it plays a pivotal role in making energy.*
A healthy body is pretty efficient at making enough thioctic acid to meet the body’s needs. While some antioxidants will only work in water (like vitamin C) or in fat (like vitamin E) due to solubility conditions, thioctic acid is both water and fat soluble, giving it the advantage of protecting all body regions and tissue types from the oxidative damage caused by free radicals. It also recharges other antioxidants to prolong their activity.*
In terms of energy production, thioctic acid is thought to reduce mitochondrial decay and boost energy output. It also functions as a co-factor in enzymes responsible for converting food into usable energy.*
In addition, thioctic acid promotes liver regeneration (important after liver surgery), safeguards the kidneys and liver from damage caused by acetaminophen-containing drugs, and helps to expel heavy metals from the body.*
