NOW Foods Alpha Lipoic Acid Category

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID (ALA) is an antioxidant with positive research findings as a potent protector against oxidation.  In one study,6 researchers studied 31 healthy adults for two months and gave 16 patients 600 mg per day of ALA and 15 patients 400 IU per day of vitamin E in the form of alpha tocopherol (AT).  After two months, they then combined them.
At the end of two months, they found ALA to be much more effective than AT in decreasing measures of oxidative stress in each patient when taken alone.  The researchers found ALA’s mode action to be in preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, the “bad” cholesterol implicated in heart disease.7  Combining them for the additional two months, however, did not improve their effectiveness.
So while taking a multivitamin can definitely protect your cells against oxidation, other supplements are also available to further protect you and enable you to age gracefully.
