Product Description


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. 

To improve your body’s overall circulation without heating things up, you can use the ALA massage oil. This is good improve circulation in the cellular system, nourish the nerves, support the supply of blood to the nerves throughout the entire body. If you tend to have poor circulation but are prone to pitta inflammation and heat, this oil is idea for you, specially in the winter time. If you use Pitta massage oil, you can blend the ALA oil with your current oil in the ratio of 50/50 or 80/20 as per your preference. If you are a Vata type and need more thermogenic herbs, you can combine this oil, 50/50 or 80/20 with your vata oil as a mixture and apply. The ALA oil will boost the herbs and ingredients in any other formula that it is combined with. It will act as a catalyst to enhance the effects and supply added circulation so the herbs are delivered even faster and more efficiently. You can do regular abhyanga massage with the ALA oil, warming it applying it leaving it on for 30 minutes and then showering. Or you can also do a daily quick massage on arms and legs only, after shower. You can do this throughout the year for added cumulative benefit.

  1. Like a deep tissue massage 5 Star Review

    I felt like blood/prana was flowing to parts of my body it couldn't reach in years, especially my eyes and knees. Now I've blended it with some other oils to boost the effect of the herbs in those oils. This is great. I'd never heard of ALA before but this is some good stuff. Thanks Vaiyda!
