Alpha Lipoic Acid in the Therapy of Diabetes

October 10, 2019

Alpha lipoic acid protects the organism from harmful effects of free radicals by neutralizing them, donating their electron to them and not destabilizing it by doing that.

It is one of the most potent antioxidants and the only antioxidant that is fat-soluble and water-soluble. The feature of "universal antioxidant" provides to alpha lipoic acid the outstanding advantage in neutralizing free radicals in all media of the body, compared to vitamin C that acts outside the cell mile and vitamin E, which acts within the cell space.

Alpha lipoic acid has the ability to regenerate, i.e. regenerate its function as well as the function of oxidized antioxidants and prolongs the life expectancy of glutathione, coenzyme Q10 as well as vitamin E.

Numerous studies have shown that ALA improves glucose utilization in DM type 2 persons. Also:

  • Alpha lipoic acid reduces insulin resistance,
  • It supports healthy glucose levels and therefore delays the onset of diabetes
  • Therefore use of ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) is also recommended for healthy people.

It is recommended for treatment of:

  • Insulin resistance, to prevent the onset of diabetes
  • Diabetes, to prevent the occurrence of its complications
  • reducing complications of diabetes (neuropathy, retinopathy, cardiomyopathy)

Clinical studies have shown that ALA delay or reverse peripheral diabetic neuropathy.

Diabetic neuropathy is defined by the signs and symptoms of peripheral nerve dysfunction in diabetic patients. Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy may include burning, pain, numbness and shivers. Clinical studies indicate that ALA has a positive effect on the vascular system of diabetics.

It is also recommended for people without health problems as a dietary supplement, especially for people over 40 years of age. Therefore, take ALA and help your body to protect itself against the effects of free radicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis (tobacco smoke, polluted air, food, drugs), support the vitality of your body, slow down the ageing process, prevent occurrence of serious illnesses (cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease) and speed up the recovery of the body after exposure to physical activity and stressful situations.
