IV Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant in both fat and water soluble mediums. It is capable of regeneration of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and increases cellular glutathione and CoQ-10. It appears to be capable of even chelating certain metals.

In Diabetes, acting as a potent antioxidant, it was found to protect pancreatic islet cells from destruction by reactive oxygen species and to stimulate sugar uptake by muscle cells in a manner similar to insulin. Type 2 diabetics, given 1000 mg intravenously (I.V.), experienced a 50 percent improvement in insulin-stimulated glucose uptake.

Alpha Lipoic Acid was also found to reduce the symptoms of neuropathy in diabetic patients.

Intravenously, Alpha Lipoic acid is used to treat liver damage. Indications include conditions that can be helped by administration of intravenous Alpha Lipoic acid such as:

  • Cataracts and glaucoma
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Fatty liver degeneration and cirrhosis
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Post stroke support
