Properties of ALA
Alpha Lipoic Acid, commonly known as ALA, is a fatty acid found in our cells and which is involved in the process of transforming glucose in energy, that is, the energy metabolism.
ALA is known as the 'universal antioxidant', since it deals with the free radicals that cause oxidative damage. (1)
Another of its main features is that Alpha Lipoic Acid helps diabetics due to its essential role in mitochondrial bioenergetic reactions. That is why its antioxidant effect has gained a lot of attention to deal with diabetic complications such as retinopathy, neuropathy and other vascular diseases. (2)
