Alpha lipoic acid is a compound that plays a vital role as an antioxidant providing protection against free radical damage and it plays other vital roles in the body. Your body needs alpha lipoic acid to help regulate and maintain healthy blood sugar levels. The body uses alpha lipoic acid as part of the glucose-pyruvate-ATP cycle. Alpha lipoic acid therefore plays an important role in producing energy for the body and it is particularly important for supporting the production of energy for the muscles.
Although the body produces its own source of alpha lipoic acid, there may be times when supplementation of alpha lipoic acid could be crucial for health.
