ALA + NAC delivers a special blend of two powerful and related antioxidants, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC). ALA has the rare ability to exist in either water- or oil-based environments, which enables ALA to deliver its powerful antioxidant benefits virtually anywhere in the body. This universal solubility results in ALA being commonly referred to as the Universal Antioxidant and allows it to be particularly effective in providing its antioxidant benefits to the cells of our nervous system and brain where its molecular structure permits it to cross the blood-brain barrier. It also protects the vital tissues and structures of the cardiovascular and immune systems, the liver, kidneys and lungs. ALA’s antioxidant capacity also helps to “recharge” and extend the life of other antioxidants in the body, such as vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q-10 and glutathione. Unfortunately, the body makes and maintains very low concentrations of ALA and supplementation can become necessary as a result of the normal changes that accompany aging, stress, illness and even exercise. For additional protection against free radical damage, we include ALA’s related molecule, NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine), which is also a powerful antioxidant and an essential building block in the creation of glutathione peroxidase, perhaps the body’s most powerful antioxidant. The human body relies on its own extremely effective internal antioxidant systems for protection, and ALA and NAC offer both internal and external antioxidant support to combat the daily onslaught of damaging free radicals. No modern antioxidant regimen is complete without the addition of the Universal Antioxidant (ALA) and NAC. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

I started taking Alpha Lipoic Acid about three months ago. I started taking it due to severe itching, burning, stinging in my feet and toes and just plain severe uncomfortable feeling in my feet and legs. I was diagnosed with Diabetes about 10 years ago and I was watching a special on Diabetes by a Dr. on TV who recommended Alpha Lipoic Acid for Diabetes and s/sx of long term complications of Diabetes. I have done a lot of research on ALA and this is an excellent product/supplement for diabetics to help control blood sugar, and to ease off s/sx of long term complications of Diabetes. It certainly has helped me tremendously and I am back today to order the auto ship so I will not run out. Thank you, Andrew, for such wonderful quality products that we can trust to give us what we need to have a true quality life.

alph lipoic acid
I have been using Andrew's products for more then ten years and now as finances are becoming limited I have to justify the expense with the fact that ...[despite numerous medical issues]...I still look good and have endless energy, great hair and skin due to the 7 products I take every day. The Alpha Lipoic Acid has helped [me] heal, as well as so many other benefits too many to mention...I love all of the products...the liver cleanse has also helped with the cleansing of my liver... . I love them all. thank you

I had to start taking Alpha Lipoic Acid and Biotin [as] requested by my cardiologist... I first started taking Alpha Lipoic Acid and Biotin from another company, went back again and again to [my] doctor and I.... still was out of balance, then took Andrew’s and went back and went back to normal! I will never be without this!
