Alpha Lipoic Acid Slows Cellular Aging and Boosts Energy Levels

Posted April 30, 2012

Mitochondria are the small powerhouse organelles that control the energy output for each of the trillions of cells that function synergistically within the human body. Every cell houses dozens to hundreds of mitochondria, depending on the particular function and energy requirement of the component organ. More than 85% of the oxygen contained in every breath is consumed by these tiny energy producers, so it is easy to understand how low mitochondrial function typically seen with aging can lead to low energy levels and ultimately cellular death.

Study finds alpha lipoic acid protects nerve tissue

Posted April 30, 2012

A recently published study regarding the role of Alpha Lipoic and premature death of neurons suggests that Alpha Lipoic confers a neuro-protective role upon neurons. Expanding on the benefits of R-Alpha Lipoic, Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that R-Alpha Lipoic is also a nutrient and its dietary supplementation increases the cellular leaves of glutathione, which growing number of studies are implicating its deficiency in the development and progression of many diseases such as Arthritis, COPD up to Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Alpha-lipoic Acid Benefits Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Posted April 30, 2012

In a randomized, placebo-controlled study involving 38 outpatients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, supplementation with alpha-lipoic acid (300, 600, 900, and 1200 mg/d) for a period of 6 months was found to be associated with reductions in fasting blood glucose and HbA1c in a dose-dependent manner.

This Antioxidant Dramatically Inhibits Alzheimer’s Disease Progression

Posted April 30, 2012

Oxidative stress and neuronal energy depletion are characteristic hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease. It has been hypothesized that, because of this, pro-energetic and antioxidant drugs such as alpha-lipoic acid might delay the onset or slow down the progression of the disease.

New Research on Alpha Lipoic Acid and Acetyl-L-Carnitine Demonstrates Benefits of Supplementation

Posted April 30, 2012

Two new studies demonstrate the benefits of supplementing with two lesser-known dietary supplements. The first shows that alpha lipoic acid helps to ward off diabetes; and the second that acetyl-l-carnitine preserves cognitive function.
