Vaidya Mishra's Knowledge Newsletter
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful both lipid- and water- soluble antioxidant. Antioxidants are intimately involved in the prevention of cellular damage -- the common pathway for cancer, aging, and a variety of diseases. An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that produces free radicals. Free radicals are chemical byproducts produced during the process of oxidation that converts nutrients to cellular energy. As they oxidize, these compounds can become highly reactive and harmful to the cell, distorting vital components and reducing metabolic efficiency. Once formed, free radicals are highly reactive. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged, resulting in disease, aging, and overall depletion and exhaustion of our bodies. While the body can naturally manufacture enough lipoic acid for metabolic functions, supplementing can allow more optimal levels to circulate in a free state.
To get the benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid or ALA, Vaidya Mishra has put together different formulations based on different delivery systems. You can choose from the delivery system that best suits your needs and physiology.
Sensitive areas like the eyes, run by alochak pitta, are by nature hot. When circulation to the eyes and nerve extremities in the eyes goes low, cooling but circulation enhancing products such as ALA are ideal. Triphala ghee can be applied on the temples and eye area at night to nourish and nurture. Then, in the day time, you may apply water-based ALA cream. This is a light soothing cream that will help improve circulation in the eye area, particularly helpful for those who work on computers for extended hours, or those who exert their eyes extensively otherwise on a daily basis. The ALA water based cream can even be used as a moisturizing facial cream in the winter time. No matter how careful we are, because of its constant exposure to climate, our facial skin has to bear the brunt of seasonal changes. In the Winter time, with the drop of temperatures, we will experience dryness, flakiness, and overall lack of lustre. The water-based ALA cream will help restore and protect from these by maintaining optimal circulation and flow of nutrients and energy to the facial skin nerves and areas.

Love the smell of this product and it has reduced the occurrence of my temporary blindness due to ocular migranes.

First I tried the ALA cream on myself, after having dry eyes from reading on my laptop and phone. I am very happy with the result, my eyes are now able to retain their moisture all day, and I don't wake up with hurting eyes anymore! I recommend it to my clients now.
