Alpha-lipoic Acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant found in many foods and made naturally in our bodies. It is a mitochondrial compound (the powerhouse of each and every living cell in our bodies) that is highly involved in energy metabolism.
ALA carries anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which when taken in a supplement form, may provide benefits and protection for:
- Nerve (neuropathic) pain/symptoms
- Heart diseases
- Liver diseases
- Neurological decline associated with aging.
When looking at pain nerve (neuropathic) pain, there is strong medical evidence supportive of alpha-lipoic acid benefits. These benefits include reducing/managing symptoms of nerve damage caused by diabetes and various forms of cancer treatment. There is also evidence to support benefits found in with pain caused by damage to nerves from numerous other causes.
Studies have also demonstrated that it may improve insulin resistance in diabetics as well as provide protective effects for the retina, which is often affected in diabetes.
Adding Alpha-lipoic to our CBD-Central Re-leaf blend allows for an additional supplement which has been recommended for years by specialists treating nerve symptoms/pain for years.
