Lipoic Select is a powerful antioxidant that strengthens the skin, detoxifies and protects the liver and is beneficial in diabetics since it helps insulin to work better. Another benefit for diabetes is in regards to neuropathy. Studies have shown the benefit that lipoic acid has in reducing and improving the symptoms of neuropathy. The burning sensations and sharp pains that occur in the legs of Diabetics is much improved by lipoic acid according to various studies.
May be beneficial as an antioxidant in Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders. Important in detoxifying heavy metals such as mercury and lead. Lipoic acid should not be taken alone., but must be combined with Taurine and Biotin. These two ingredients are included in Lipoic Select.
Recommended Usage: 1 capsule per day or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Storage: Keep out of reach of children. Store sealed in a cool, dry place.
Warnings: If taking medication, pregnant or nursing, consult a physician before using.
Lipoic acid, a vital antioxidant, is consistently researched and studied for its numerous beneficial attributes including its role in preserving and protecting collagen in the skin, fortifying liver function and maintaining blood sugar and insulin balance. It is a naturally occurring compound and small amounts are produced in the human body (as well as in plants).
Lipoic Acid scavenges highly reactive compounds, neutralizing them before they can inflict damage to cells including DNA, proteins, lipids and cell membranes. Typically, the neutralizing action tends to exhaust these beneficial scavengers until they can be replenished but Lipoic acid has a potent regenerative force. This regenerative property also boosts recovery in other free radical scavengers like vitamin C, glutathione and coenzyme Q10. Lipoic acid is so efficient at neutralizing the oxidative damage in cases of heavy metal toxicity, it is a promising subject of focus for researchers of neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer’s. Lipoic acid halts production of adhesion molecules, the “sticky” molecules that capture fat along arterial walls and contribute to atherosclerosis.
Lipoic Acid’s promising role in controlling or preventing diabetes stems from its ability to increase glucose uptake in fat and muscle cells by binding to the insulin receptor sites. This way, glucose is delivered to where it is best used rather than circulating in the bloodstream.
Lipoic Acid competes for biotin dependent enzymes so it is critical to supply them together. Taurine and biotin play important roles in maintaining healthy insulin function and we have included them in this formulation.
