An advanced antioxidant that fights free radicals, Alpha Lipoic Acid is an important component in our anti-aging products. Free radicals are the result of oxidation, a naturally-occurring side effect of cellular metabolism in the body, and are believed to destroy tissue on the cellular level through a destabilizing chain reaction – accelerating the aging process. Free radicals occur naturally, but exposure to harmful environmental factors, such as pollution, sun exposure, or lifestyle conditions such as smoking cigarettes, can increase their production. Antioxidants such as Alpha Lipoic Acid bind to these free radicals helping to inhibit their spread. Alpha Lipoic Acid is unique since it’s an antioxidant and it also assists the body’s production of Vitamin C, one of our naturally-occurring antioxidants.
