1,000 mg of pure alpha-lipoic acid per serving
Alpha-lipoic acid is a nutritional cofactor molecule that participates in the energy metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, with a particular role in blood glucose disposal. It is also able to scavenge a number of free radicals. Both fat and water-soluble, alpha-lipoic acid functions in the body as part of several multi-enzyme complexes located in the mitochondria and is essential for metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, for the conversion of their energy into ATP.
Because alpha-lipoic acid is involved in so many different antioxidant functions in virtually all body tissues, it has been called the universal antioxidant. Besides being a universal free radical scavenger, alpha-lipoic acid can also recharge other antioxidant systems throughout the body. It can extend the activity of vitamins C and E. In addition, alpha-lipoic acid may also regenerate glutathione.
A related metabolic function of alpha-lipoic acid is its role in blood glucose disposal and appears to be necessary for the normal healthy transport of blood glucose into the cell.
