Supports the body's defense against free radicals. It recycles antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C and vitamin E. An ideal antioxidant would have the ability to quench a wide variety of free radicals, to support the functioning of other antioxidants, to bind or chelate metal ions that can generate free radicals, to function in watery and fatty environments, and to be present in tissues, cells, and extracellular spaces having exceeded these criteria, lipoic acid was termed the universal antioxidant.

Alpha lipoic acid (aka ALA, lipoate or thioctic acid) is utilized as an antioxidant and co-factor in glycolysis. Glycolysis is the initial process in most of the body's pathways to breakdown glucose into useful forms of energy. Though critical to life, ALA is not a vitamin because it can be synthesized from essential fatty acids and the amino acid L-cysteine. However, no food is rich enough to serve as a good source.
Alpha Lipoic is a powerful antioxidant which works with other nutrients such as vitamins E, C and glutathione to defend against excessive free radicals. It is called a universal antioxidant because it is soluble in both water and lipid based tissue. Moreover, the body uses it in many other ways, including food metabolism and energy production. What makes Alpha Lipoic Acid so versatile is the two sulfur atoms that are part of each molecule.
