Alpha-Lipoic Acid supports liver detoxification, has antioxidant effects supportive of nerve health, and helps support mental sharpness.* It is an antioxidant in both water-soluble and fat-soluble tissues.*
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) has historically been used to help support 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 supporting mental sharpness.*
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.
