    Lipoic acid (LA), also known as α-lipoic acid[2], alpha lipoic acid (ALA) and thioctic acid[3] is an organosulfur compound derived from octanoic acid. LA contains two sulfur atoms (at C6 and C8) connected by a disulfide bond and is thus considered to be oxidized although either sulfur atom can exist in higher oxidation states. Alpha lipoic acid has been examined in relation to diabetes from several different angles. Since many facets of diabetes, and the common complications of diabetes, have a foundation in oxidative stress, this powerful antioxidant has been a candidate for improving insulin sensitivity, damage to arteries and blood vessels, and damage to nerves.

    Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a sulfur-containing fatty acid naturally found in your body. Lipoic acid is unique among other antioxidants because it is both water-and fat-soluble.. You get small amounts of lipoic acid in your diet from spinach and collard greens, broccoli, beef and organ meats.. But lipoic acid declines in your body as you age.

    Alpha-lipoic acid is a common supplement, but what about its geroprotective properties? We take a look at this supplement in another of our geroprotector articles. History. Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) was first discovered in , when Snell discovered that a . What Is Alpha Lipoic Acid? ALA is a naturally occurring thiol antioxidant, or simply stated, a sulfur containing chemical produced in plants and animals (1, 8). Alpha lipoic acid is found from the following dietary sources: (4, 5, 8) Fruits & Vegetables: Green leafy vegetables are some of the highest sources of ALA including spinach and.

"The Alpha Lipoic Acid Breakthrough" is the best book on alpha lipoic acid [ALA] that I've read. The author, Dr. Burt Berkson, is an M.D. and a Ph.D and has treated people with mushroom poisoning with alpha lipoic acid and saved their lives from certain liver failure and death.

It neutralizes "both water- and fat-soluble free radicals" and regenerates other antioxidants in the body. The preliminary chapters in the book explain the basic facts about free radicals and antioxidants.4/5.

The book is divided into three sections: Section I: Discovery and Molecular Alpha lipoic acid book reviews the early studies leading to the discovery of alpha-lipoic acid and explains the molecular structure, biosynthesis, and the characterization of lipoic acid and its chemical derivatives.

It was encouraging to finally read a book that validated my experience with lipoic acid. This book explains a-lipoic acid in layman's terms and sheds light on the value of this nutrient. As a Type I diabetic of 36 years, I have essentially reversed diabetic neuropathy by taking mg of a-lipoic acid per day.5/5(5).

Alpha Lipoic Acid. Alpha lipoic acid (lipoic acid, thioctic acid, acetate replacing factor, biletan, lipoicin, thioctacid, thioctan) is a fat-soluble, sulfur-containing, vitamin-like antioxidant. 19 Alpha lipoic acid increases intracellular glutathione and regenerates ascorbic acid, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a multifunctional, versatile nutrient that plays a key role in the antioxidant network and the metabolic process. Alpha lipoic acid is an exceptionally versatile nutrient; being both water and fat soluble, it is able to function in almost any part of the body.

Studies have shown lipoic acid can make it easier for the body to use its own insulin to reduce blood sugar on: Newport Blvd, Costa Mesa,CA.

Lipoic acid is both water- and fat-soluble, and is thus widely distributed in both cellular membranes and the cytosol of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells.

There are two forms of lipoic acid; α-lipoic acid (1,2-dithiolanepentanoic acid, 1,2-dithiolanevaleric acid or thioctic acid) and the reduced form dihydrolipoic acid (6,8-dimercaptoocatanoic acid or 6,8-thioctic acid) (Fig. Alpha-lipoic acid occurs naturally in potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, yams, and red meat.
