Alpha-Lipoic Acid supports liver detoxification, has antioxidant effects supportive of nerve health, and helps maintain mental sharpness. It is an antioxidant in both water-soluble and fat-soluble tissues.
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) has historically been used to mitigate toxic insults to the liver. ALA is also a nutrient cofactor involved in mitochondrial function, thus supporting energy production in the cells. Studies indicate that a higher amount of alpha-lipoic acid – 600-1,800 mg daily – is most effective for neurological support and helping to maintain mental sharpness.* Thorne's Alpha-Lipoic Acid provides 300 mg of ALA per capsule. In addition to being an important antioxidant in both fat-soluble and water-soluble tissues, alpha-lipoic acid also helps recycle other antioxidants, including glutathione, another essential antioxidant for liver detoxification.
Take 1 capsule two to three times daily or as recommended by your health professional.
