3:10 How to get alpha-lipoic acid
In this video, we’re going to cover the eight benefits of alpha-lipoic acid. Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a fat that shouldn’t be confused with alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is an omega-3 fatty acid. Alpha-lipoic acid has a lot of very interesting properties.
Benefits of alpha-lipoic acid:
1. Powerful antioxidant
When you’re exposed to various things, you get free-radicals that can damage your DNA, cellular membranes, and mitochondria. Alpha-lipoic acid could help protect you from that.
2. Glucose sensitizer
Alpha-lipoic acid could help normalize glucose levels.
3. Insulin sensitizer
Alpha-lipoic acid could help normalize insulin levels.
4. Increases glutathione
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that your body can make in the liver. It’s known as the master antioxidant.
5. Inhibits cancer
It may inhibit certain types of cancer.
6. Helps with autonomic neuropathy
This is a very common yet under-diagnosed condition related to diabetes. A good remedy may be to not only get on keto and intermittent fasting but to also start taking 600-1800mg of alpha-lipoic acid.
7. Protects cell membranes
Alpha-lipoic acid mainly deals with the protection of lipids. This is why it could help protect your cell membranes. If there’s damage to the membrane, all sorts of issues could happen.
8. Could help with diabetic retinopathy
High levels of sugar can damage the retinas. Alpha-lipoic acid may help minimize the damage to the retinas. Doing keto and intermittent fasting may also be beneficial.
If you’re going to take alpha-lipoic acid as a supplement, you may want to take it on an empty stomach. If you have a major condition you’re trying to deal with, the supplement form may be the most beneficial.
You can also get alpha-lipoic acid from:
• Organ meats
• Brussels sprouts
