alpha-lipoic-acid

or annotated as ALA, is a natural antioxidant produced by our body. It plays a major role in the prevention and management of metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and oxidative stress. Alpha-lipoic acid has been widely used to enhance insulin usage within the body in order to maintain normalized blood sugar levels. If taken in supplement form, it is recommended to use ALA in the form of r-ALA, which has been shown to be much more effective. But results may vary.
