Pharma Nord Bio-Lipoic Acid 30 mg 150 Tablets
Lipoic Acid Supplements is only known as Alpha-Lipoic Acid (or thioctic acid), it is a vitamin-like antioxidant, which is produced naturally in the body in small amounts. It is present in both the aqueous (water) and lipid (fat) compartments of cells. Alpha-Lipoic Acid is mainly obtained from the diet with red meat, spinach and brewer’s yeast being good sources. Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is important for converting sugars and fat into energy within the body, and is also a powerful antioxidant, protecting tissues against free radical damage. Free radicals are chemicals which are created by our own metabolism but can also be generated by exposure to environmental pollution, smoking, alcohol, UV light etc.
