Apha-lipoic acid, known also as thioctic acid, was found for the first time during the 50’s. It presents an enzyme, located in the mitochondria – the energy factory of human cell. In the end of 80’s, the scientists found out that this acid shows powerful antioxidant properties. In addition, it processes other antioxidants, especially Vitamin C and Vitamin E, increasing their strength. Alpha-lipoic acid has the ability to work both in water and fatty environment. Therefore, sometimes, it is referred to as a “universal antioxidant” and is also more effective in the neutralization of free radicals in comparison with other similar elements. It plays an important role in the processing of glutathione – a key antioxidant in the body. Finally, Alpha-lipoic acid supports B-group Vitamins during the transformation of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy.
