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.
The water based cream can be used starting 1 years old and up. Lipid based products can start at 5yrs old. Capsules over 18yrs. The oil starting 5 yrs old.
Persons diagnosed with chronic ailments (cancer, diabetes, hypotension, etc) should check with their doctor before taking alpha-lipoic acid or any other supplement. Pregnant and lactating women are advised not to consume alpha-lipoic acid, due to a lack of long-term safety data.
