Alpha Lipoic Acid

      Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is an antioxidant used in Europe to promote liver and nerve health, and confer protective benefits against oxidative processes. Alpha-lipoic acid has been called the �universal� antioxidant because it boosts glutathione levels in cells already within a normal range and has potent antioxidant actions.

      Research has strongly implicated cellular oxidative damage caused by free radicals in the pathogenesis of hair loss. What makes alpha-lipoic acid so effective as an antioxidant is its ability to quench free radicals in both aqueous and lipid environments, which is particularly significant in regards to the dermal papilla. This means that the antioxidant activity of alpha-lipoic acid is working in the extra-cellular fluid and also within the cell.

      Alpha-lipoic acid also is a cofactor for some of the key enzymes (alpha keto acid dehydrogenases) involved in generating energy from food and oxygen in mitochondria and thus plays a critical role in energy production within the hair follicle�s and other cell�s mitochondria.

      The combination of ALA with Palmetto Guard, (Beta-sitosterol/C02 Extract of Saw Palmetto) and Carnitine inhibit both 5 alpha reductase and the inflammatory processes that contribute to the hair miniaturization seen in MPB, providing a two pronged, natural treatment approach.

      Directions: Take one (1) capsule in the morning and one (1) capsule in the evening, preferably on an empty stomach, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
      Caution: If you are taking glucose lowering medication, consult your healthcare provider before taking this product.
