Deal of the Week: Colorado Nutrition’s Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

Alpha Lipoic Acid was mentioned in Readers Digest article “New Pill That Stops Aging.”

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that is soluble in both fat and water. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is also an important component in the energy production process in the cells. Alpha-lipoic acid is a coenzyme that assists in the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-coA. Acetyl-coA is the beginning point for the Krebs cycle, one of the body’s main energy production cycles, which produces the high-energy molecule ATP. Alpha-lipoic acid supports the immune system and also supports healthy liver function.

Alpha Lipoic Acid and Diabetes

Alpha Lipoic Acid is prescribed in Germany for adult onset of diabetes. There it has been shown to help for the following reasons:

*Recommended supplementation for diabetic neuropathy is 800mg/day

Alpha Lipoic Acid Helps to preserve brain function in aging adults.
Results from animal studies indicate that alpha-lipoic acid may improve long-term memory. Much remains to be learned about whether this occurs in humans, but it may be worth trying this powerful antioxidant when a disease such as Alzheimer’s starts to erode memory. In addition, alpha-lipoic acid holds promise for preserving brain cells following a stroke or other type of trauma that restricts blood flow to the brain.

Food Sources of Alpha Lipoic Acid include:

  • Red meats and other Organ Meats such as Heart and Kidney
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Yeast (Particuarly Brewer’s Yeast)

    I have been advocating Alpha Lipoic acid for quite a while. In my research I found that 600 mg/day raises glutathione levels, this is the reason for much of its benefits. I found another way to substantially raise glutathione levels and it reversed my diabetic complications including neuropathy. Read my story at
