Today's hectic lifestyles can put a strain on our body's natural ability to eliminate free radicals. We need a certain level of antioxidants to fight free radicals and alpha lipoic acid may provide the necessary top-up our bodies require, particularly during times when other factors are placing a strain on our body.
Alpha lipoic acid is found in every cell of our body, where it assists in turning glucose into energy. It is difficult to obtain therapeutic amounts of alpha aipoic acid through the diet alone. For this reason supplementation has become popular and is now widely recommended by practitioners, particularly for those patients worn down by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is a general term used to describe cell and tissue damage from free radicals such as pollution, cigarette smoke, excessive consumption of alcohol, bacterial, fungal or viral infections.
Each tablet provides a full 300mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid, making it one of the most potent products on the market.
Take up to 2 tablets daily with or without food. For general antioxidant support a lower dose of one tablet daily may be used.

This product is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.
Those suffering from diabetes should consult a doctor prior to taking alpha lipoic acid as it may enhance insulin activity.
