Alpha Lipoic Acid (Formula 104) by Dee Cee Labs

Formula 104 - Antioxidant - Help Balance Blood Sugar Levels

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 in 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.

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.
