What makes IV alpha lipoic acid(ALA) special?
Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant recognized for its many benefits including better health, beauty, and weight loss. ALA if round in every cell of your body and is produced in your cells. However, things like stress, disease, medications, toxins, and aging can lead to reduced levels of alpha lipoic acid.
Other antioxidants are soluble only in water (like vitamin C), limiting how your body can store and use them.
Alpha lipoic acid is classified as a phospholipid, meaning it is both water and fat-soluble and can work in all the tissues of your body, earning itself the reputation of “universal antioxidant”.
ALA is also unique because it helps your body restore or regenerate levels of vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione, the mother of all antioxidants.
