Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), an important metabolite synthesized in the mitochondria, is soluble in oil or water and active in both extracellular and intracellular environments. Besides playing a key role in the production of cellular energy, ALA has important antioxidant functions.* It also helps restore or recycle other antioxidants to their active states, including vitamins C and E, Coenzyme Q10, and glutathione.*
Because R-lipoic acid is highly unstable and sensitive to heat, ALA Release utilizes a proprietary stabilized form of R-lipoic acid.
Biotin is added because long-term administration of alpha-lipoic acid may theoretically increase the need for biotin.* Biotin may also extend the life of alpha-lipoic acid in the body.
