Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) supports the body in two ways. It helps convert food into energy and promotes antioxidant protection. ALA supports the citric acid cycle, otherwise known as the Krebs cycle, the most fundamental energy producing action in the human body. ALA supports production of ATP (the body's cellular energy) by acting as a catalyst in producing acetyl-coenzyme A.
ALA also plays an important role as an antioxidant. It helps neutralize the effects of free radicals on the body by enhancing the antioxidant functions of glutathione. In addition to functioning as an antioxidant, this hard-working nutrient assists the B vitamins in producing energy from the proteins, carbohydrates, and fats consumed through foods. Vitamin B6 plays a major role in the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. In addition, vitamin B6 facilitates the release of glycogen from the liver and skeletal muscles so that it can be used for energy.
