Olympian Labs alpha lipoic coenzyme Q10 200 mg capsules
OL has combined these two meta vitamins into a 100mg therapeutic dose of each. ALA and CoQ10 taken together magnify the effectiveness of each other. ALA creates enzymes that fuel CoQ10 during energy production. CoQ10 recycles enzymes for ALA. Both nutrients are fueling each other to supply the perpetual energy needed for all healing and metabolism! Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA).Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
ALA provides a key step in the body�s energy production process. Energy is produced by the body in an eight step process called the �Kreb�s Cycle�. ALA is the �co-enzyme� that activates the conversion of glucose into energy. Glucose is a major energy source. ALA is an essential component of optimal energy production. Energy is the rate limiting resource for all metabolism, healing and, therefore, quality of life.
ALA is also one of the most powerful anti-aging, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory nutrients. It is known as the �universal� antioxidant because it is both fat-soluble and water-soluble. It works both in the fatty cell plasma membrane and the aqueous interior of the cell to protect the body against free radicals. Free radicals, also called pro-oxidants, are known to be a major contributing factor to our aging. Vitamin E and Vitamin C are also both known for their excellent antioxidant qualities. ALA has been measured to be 100 times stronger at protecting us from free radicals than Vitamin E and Vitamin C combined!
ALA plays an important role in liver health. The liver uses about 15% of the body�s total energy supply. One can easily see how sufficient ALA supplementation will contribute to a healthy liver. ALA regenerates a key antioxidant called glutathione. Glutathione also plays an essential role for liver detoxification. Without ALA, there would be insufficient glutathione for the liver to detoxify the numerous man-made chemicals we come in contact with everyday. Studies have shown ALAsupports the body�s efforts against liver diseases including mushroom toxicity reactions, alcohol-related liver damage, and metal toxicity.
ALA plays an important role in preventing and treating diabetes. ALA can improve insulin sensitivity in patients with type-2 diabetes. ALAtreatment effectively reversed body weight, blood glucose, plasma insulin, cholesterol, triglycerides and lipid peroxidation levels of diabetic animals. ALA has a beneficial effect on diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic Retinopathy is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. There are many other benefits to ALA supplementation including its protection against inflammation and its application for cognitive enhancement.
