The body produces only small amounts of the antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid. We take in the largest share through food: red meat from beef and organic meat are among the most important suppliers.

Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant and helps reduce oxidative stress in the body. Alpha lipoic acid counteracts free radicals and can support the formation of intracellular antioxidants (e.g. glutathione). Alpha Lipoic Acid contributes to carbohydrate metabolism by improving blood glucose levels.

The R form is naturally present in the body and is considered the "active" form. The S-form is a by-product of the manufacturing process and is considered the biologically "inactive" form, although some research indicates that it may have other activities than the R-form that may be beneficial. Generally considered inactive, most commercial alpha lipoic acid products contain a 50:50 mixture of the two forms.

The use of lipoic acid as a powerful antioxidant has increased
The main reason for this is that the body routinely converts alpha-lipoic acid into dihydrolipoic acid, an even more potent antioxidant capable of counteracting the damaging effects of peronitritic radicals.

In addition, lipoic acid in its form as dihydrolipoic acid has the ability to restore vitamin C, which in turn can regenerate vitamin E. The multi-talents of these properties of lipoic acid can increase its popularity among consumers, especially athletes who want to optimize their energy metabolism.

Another lesser-known reason for taking lipoic acid supplements is that it fills in deficiencies in red meat and animal fat, which athletes often avoid these days. Red meat and animal fats are rich sources of lipoic acid. Therefore, lipoic acid is becoming a very popular dietary supplement among vegetarians and vegans. Lipoic acid has also been noted for its supportive effect against cataract formation. The water-soluble and antioxidant properties of lipoic acid lead to oxidative relief of the water-containing environment in the eyes.

Alpha lipoic acid has a high redox potential. It therefore plays a key role in our body's antioxidant network. Alpha lipoic acid is a potent sulfur-containing antioxidant. It helps to balance stress hormone levels. It supports liver metabolism.

According to the latest findings, alpha lipoic acid has properties that keep the basal metabolism high (thermogenesis) and are therefore important for self-regulation of body weight. Alpha lipoic acid works best in combination with other antioxidants.
