Free radicals are found ubiquitously in our bodies thanks to the many environmental pollutants, toxins, processed foods, illnesses and daily stressors that we are surrounded by. Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant capable of protecting us on a cellular level from these damaging free radicals.
ALA is a unique compound in that it is both fat-soluble and water-soluble, making its antioxidant activities functional inside and outside of the cell. This dual ability makes ALA capable of regenerating a variety of other antioxidants in the body such as vitamin E, vitamin C, coenzyme Q10 and glutathione. Regeneration is most important as we age because our bodies are less able to absorb and recycle these nutrients, while being more susceptible to the damaging effects of free radicals from the environment. Cyto-Matrix's Cyto-ALA provides 600mg of stable ALA per capsule. A low dose of thiamine and biotin are included to prevent deficiencies and counteract possible side effects that can occur with therapeutic dosing of ALA.
