Alpha lipoic acid is an essential substance for the body and has the unique feature that it is water- as well as fat-soluble. For this reason the substance can easily pass through the membranes to execute its protective effect during the water and fat phase of the body. It is one of the few antioxidants that readily cross the blood-brain barrier and provides antioxidative protection for the brain and nervous tissue. Another unique feature of Alpha Lipoic Acid is that it can restore previously spent (oxidised) antioxidants into their original state so that they can neutralise radicals once again.


After oral intake, Alpha lipoic acid is quickly and entirely absorbed and carried to the tissues to be used by the cells. In the cell, a large portion is converted into the reduced form of alpha lipoic acid: dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA). Alpha lipoic acid is present in all bodily cells. This is not surprising, since alpha lipoic acid plays an important role in the production of energy within the mitochondria, the so-called ‘energy centres’ of the cell. Being the main muscle in the body, the heart is the first to notice its influence. Alpha lipoic acid also has beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system and helps to reduce cholesterol levels.

Most important characteristics of Alpha lipoic acid 300 mg:

  • Both water- and fat-soluble
  • Easily passes through membranes, such as the blood-brain barrier
  • Regenerates oxidised antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione, coenzyme Q10)


Take 1 capsule daily, during of immediately after a meal. 300 mg per day is sufficient for general protection against free radicals.


Alpha lipoic acid can decrease blood glucose levels. Therefore, one should be cautious when using Alpha lipoic acid in combination with anti-diabetic medication. A high dose of alpha lipoic acid is not recommended for people who are suspected of having thiamine deficiency (e.g. alcoholics), unless thiamine is given prior to treatment. Interactions with regular medication and other natural health products may occur. Please consult an expert about this.


It is recommended to combine the treatment with NAC 600 mg, L-Glutamine 500 mg or L-Glutamine powder if the primary aim is to increase the levels of glutathione. If alpha lipoic acid is primarily used for its antioxidative effect, low doses of vitamin E, vitamin C, coenzyme Q10 and NAC can have a supportive effect. Because of its regenerative effect, alpha lipoic acid will utilise these antioxidants very sparingly. The chelation of heavy metals by alpha lipoic acid can be assisted by for example chlorella.
Besides taking this product it is also recommended to follow a healthy diet, as well as taking a basic supplementation of Multi Vital Forte, Vitamin C-1000 Ascorbate Complex and Omega-3 liquid (or Omega-3 capsules).
