    Breaking it down

    Below we've broken down the main functions of our Alpha Lipoic Acid and the benefits it can provide.

    Research has linked this supplement to weight loss because it may lower the enzyme AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), which is responsible for increasing the amount of calories burned at rest (1).

    One study showed it can reduce blood sugar levels in diabetics by up to 64% (2).

    As a natural antioxidant, it is believed to have a positive effect on oxidative stress in cardiovascular conditions (3).

    What the research says

    In addition to neuroprotective benefits, ALA has been shown to help obesity, diabetes, and overall inflammation.
