7 Major Benefits of ALPHA LIPOIC ACID (ALA) Infusion Therapy
Anti-aging: Oxidative stress and free radicals are primary contributors to the aging process, damaging skin cells, vital organs and cellular mitochondria. ALA’s powerful antioxidant properties fight oxidative stress and protect cells from damage, slowing the aging process. ALA also fights systemic inflammation which is a major contributor to metabolic disorders like heart disease, hypertension and diabetes.
Weight loss: ALA enhances your cells’ ability to use glucose to produce energy. Greater energy expenditure tips the scales in your favor as you burn more fuel, helping you to reduce fat stores and rev up your metabolism.
Vision health: Many people experience vision problems in middle age that worsen over time. ALA fights oxidative stress that can damage optical nerves and cause eye-related disorders like retinal damage, macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and vision loss.
Liver health: Your liver is a vital organ that performs multiple functions, making it pivotal to human health. ALA promotes liver health by protecting liver cells from oxidative stress damage and supporting the neogenesis of new liver cells. ALA therapy is used to fight many liver problems, including hepatitis B and C, autoimmune hepatitis, primary biliary cirrhosis, and other liver conditions.
Reversal of Type II diabetes and peripheral neuropathy: ALA improves insulin sensitivity of the cells, enabling them to use circulating glucose for energy production, thereby lowering your blood sugar. ALA via IV infusion has been found to be effective in treating conditions associated with diabetes, including diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
Slows or stops cancer cell growth: Multiple studies have found ALA to be beneficial in the treatment of cancer. ALA has been shown to decrease the proliferation of cells in breast, ovarian, colorectal, and lung cancer. It also appears to slow the progression of pancreatic and thyroid cancer, and to enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy.
Treatment of dementia and cognitive decline: ALA is able to penetrate the blood-brain barrier to protect the mitochondria in brain tissue. It offers hope to Alzheimer’s and other patients who suffer from memory loss, motor impairments and reduced cognitive function. ALA is also being studied as an effective treatment for multiple sclerosis.
