It is manufactured in the body, but often times not in the amounts necessary to perform its many functions.

A key component of the metabolic process, alpha lipoic acid produces energy in muscles and directs calories into energy production. In addition, this potent nutrient helps sustain normal blood sugar levels, supports the nervous system, and provides nutritional support for normal liver functioning. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a multifunctional, versatile nutrient which plays a key role in the antioxidant network and the metabolic process.
