ALA Release x 60 Tablets
- Vegetarian product
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), an important metabolite synthesised in the mitochondria, is soluble in oil or water, and active in both extracellular and intracellular environments. Besides playing a key role in the production of cellular energy, ALA has important antioxidant functions. It also helps restore or recycle other antioxidants to their active states, including vitamins C and E, Coenzyme Q10, and glutathione.
Because R-lipoic acid is highly unstable and sensitive to heat, ALA Release utilises a proprietary stabilised form of R-lipoic acid. Biotin is added because long-term administration of alpha-lipoic acid may theoretically increase the need for biotin. Biotin may also extend the life of alpha-lipoic acid in the body.
