Alpha Lipoic AcidAlpha-Lipoeic Acid

This anti-oxidant fights the signs of aging that come from being exposed to the sun's UV rays. It encourages new cell growth and is beneficial against free-radicals. Some ot it's noted uses are:

  • A potent and versatile antioxidant.
  • It inhibits cross-linking, the  formation of chemical bridges between proteins or other large molecules. Cross-linking contributed to the aging process by causing hardening of arteries, wrinkling of the skin and stiffening of joints.
  • It has moderate anti-inflammatory effect.
