Information @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Lipoic acid is an antioxidant found in certain foods, including red meat, spinach, broccoli, potatoes, yams, carrots, beets, and yeast. It is also made in small amounts in the human body.
  • Lipoic acid plays an important role in metabolism. Recent research has shown that it is beneficial in treating nerve damage in diabetics. It is an antioxidant that is promoted to protect the body against cancer and other diseases.
  • Lipoic acid can regenerate vitamin C from its oxidized form, dehydroascorbic acid. Lipoic acid can also potentially regenerate other antioxidants. Lipoic acid increases the levels of glutathione, a very important antioxidant normally found in our cells and responsible for mopping up all types of toxins and free radicals.
  • Alpha-lipoic acid may prove useful in the treatment of chronic hepatitis because it relieves stress on the liver and helps rid the body of toxins.It has also been used in conjunction with silymarin to treat Amanita poisoning.
  • Alpha-lipoic acid is absorbed from the small intestine and distributed to the liver via the portal circulation and to various tissues in the body via the systemic circulation. The natural R-entantiomer is more readily absorbed than the L-entantiomer and is the more active form.
  • Lipoic acid cannot be called a vitamin in the traditional sense of the word since our bodies appear capable of producing it. Nutrition tradition says no substance can be designated a "vitamin" unless it is impossible to produce in the body.
  • Alpha-lipoic acid protects mitochondria by removing free radicals and improves the recycling of other antioxidants. Carnitine is more potent in restoring mitochondrial energy production. Thus the combination is complementary.
  • Degussa's new alpha-lipoic acid has been microencapsulated on a molecular level with alpha-cyclodextrin produced by chemicals group Wacker, giving it a much-improved shelf life and taste.
  • Alpha-lipoic acid has been described in scientific publications as the “ideal,” “universal,” and “metabolic” antioxidant. At high doses, alpha-lipoic acid helps maintain normal blood sugar balance in certain populations, and it also helps protect the liver and other tissues.
