Dee Cee Labs Alpha Lipoic Plus

with ChromeMate and Methylcobalamin B-12

Dee Cee Labs Alpha Lipoic Plus is an alpha lipoic acid supplement that also contains a synergistic blend of ChromeMate and Methylcobalamin B-12.

What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?

Alpha lipoic acid has been called the universal antioxidant because of its ability to dissolve in both fat and water. Alpha lipoic acid has been found to destroy more free radicals than most antioxidants because of its ability to get to tissues comprised of water or fat.

Scientists have found that the body does manufacture small amounts of its own alpha lipoic acid, however, in order to get the concentrated doses needed to treat specific ailments supplements are recommended by many experts.

Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid and Diabetes

Alpha lipoic acid has been used for decades in Europe to treat diabetic neuropathy, a type of nerve damage that occurs in patients with diabetes. Due to its antioxidant properties, alpha lipoic acid may help to block the damage. Due to alpha lipoic acid's effect on glucose metabolism, it may enhance the glucose lowering action of insulin.

A clinical trial involving 328 patients with diabetic neuropathy received either 100 mg, 600 mg, or 1,200 mg a day of alpha-lipoic acid for three weeks. The participants who took 600 mg daily had the greatest reduction in pain and numbness. In a separate study involving alpha lipoic acid, blood sugar levels dropped in 74 patients with type 2 diabetes who took 600 mg or more of alpha lipoic acid daily.

Alpha Lipoic Acid Heart Benefits

An amazing benefit of alpha lipoic acid is that it may also assist the 25% of people with diabetes at risk of sudden death from nerve related heart damage. In one particular study, patients who took 800 mg of alpha lipoic acid for four months had improved heart function. Based on current research, it appears that for those afflicted with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, alpha lipoic acid should be part of your treatment plan.

Benefits of Chromium

The chromium in Alpha Lipoic Acid Plus is ChromeMate, a patented form of chromium polynicotinate which has an important role in regulating appetite, reducing sugar cravings, and lowering body fat. Chromium helps insulin metabolize fat, turn protein into muscle, and convert sugar into energy. The primary function of chromium is to potentiate the effects of insulin and thereby enhance glucose, amino acid and fat metabolism.

Some studies have revealed that chromium supplements enable certain people with diabetes to decrease their dosage of diabetes medications. Chromium helps insulin do its job so it seems sensible that it can help people with type 2 diabetes. Low levels of chromium are found in patients with diabetes; however there is not evidence that low chromium causes diabetes. Some studies have found that chromium picolinate supplementation in doses of 200 micrograms is beneficial, but others have not. In a large clinical trial conducted in China, it was noted that chromium was helpful for those with diabetes, however, it must be noted that the Chinese, even those with diabetes, are less likely to be obese than Americans.

Methylcobalamin B-12

Methylcobalamin (Methyl B-12) is better absorbed and retained than other forms of B-12 (such as cyanocobalamin). Methyl B-12 protects nerve tissue and brain cells, and promotes better sleep. Methyl B-12 is a cofactor of methionine synthase, which reduces toxic homocysteine to the essential amino acid Methionine. Methylcobalamin also protects eye function against toxicity caused by excess glutamate.
