Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that
is soluble in both fat and water. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly
recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is also an
important component in the energy production process in the cells. Alpha-lipoic
acid is a coenzyme that assists in the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-coA.
Acetyl-coA is the beginning point for the Krebs cycle, one of the body's main
energy production cycles, which produces the high-energy molecule ATP.

as Alzheimer's starts to erode memory. In addition, alpha-lipoic acid holds
promise for preserving brain cells following a stroke or other type of trauma
that restricts blood flow to the brain.
