Overview

Description

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) enhances key antioxidants in your body, neutralizes free radicals, boosts the impact of glutathione and coenzyme Q10, helps regenerate vitamins C and E, and combat signs of cellular aging. It is found in every cell of your body — but often in small quantities. It can be found in certain foods, such as some organic meats and greens, but supplementation is key for effectiveness.

It is often used in skincare products to enhance the skin and boost anti-aging.
