AMPK is a master control mechanism for cellular energy homeostasis. It determines body fat composition and has a significant impact on mitochondrial biogenesis, the diabesity spectrum and life span extension in mice models. Lipoic Acid Plus supplies (DL) R-Alpha-Lipoic acid (ALA), a potent antioxidant and a critical cofactor for many enzyme complexes, along with vitamin C. As a powerful biological antioxidant, Lipoic acid has exhibiting the capability to quench free radicals, equivalent to that of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), and vitamins C and E. In the body it functions as both a coenzyme, and a necessary component for normal mitochondrial function. Unlike the actions of other antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, which are restricted to aqueous tissues, and fatty tissues/membranes, respectively, ALA has activity in both fat and water-soluble tissues. Taken orally, lipoic acid is readily absorbed into both the cellular and tissue systems.ALA has also demonstrated advantageous effects in supporting both the cardiovascular system, and glucose dysregulation. In terms of cardiovascular support, as a consequence of both its antioxidant function, and its metal chelating ability, the actions of ALA have been associated with the inhibition of endothelial activation, signifying its potential benefit in delaying both arterial plaque buildup and negative cardiovascular events. Use for diabetes, fibromyalgia, inflammation, superoxide radical quenching, liver dysfunction, myelin sheath degeneration, peripheral neuropathy, RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME and is a mild heavy metal chelator. Also indicated for Tinnitus.
