Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that is soluble in both fat and water. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is also an important component in the energy production process in the cells. Alpha-lipoic acid is a coenzyme that assists in the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-coA. Acetyl-coA is the beginning point for the Krebs cycle, one of the body’s main energy production cycles, which produces the high-energy molecule ATP. Alpha-lipoic acid supports the immune system and also supports healthy liver function.

Experts reveal best ways to save an aging brain

June 23, 2009

Fifty-three percent of people have at least a minor mental decline in their 70s, 80s. But research done by a team at the University of California, San Francisco, found several ways to save your aging brain, including:

  • Stay in school: High school graduates were 2 to 3 times more likely to be cognitive maintainers, compared to those with minor memory loss. Those with a ninth-grade literacy level or higher were 4 to 5 times as likely to maintain their mental capacity with age.

  • Quit smoking: Chalk up one more advantage of steering clear of cigarettes. Nonsmokers were 1.84-fold more likely to be in the “no memory loss” category compared with those with minor decline.

  • Exercise: People who engaged in moderate or vigorous activity at least once a week were more likely to maintain their memory.

  • Stay connected: People who lived with someone had a higher chance of being a memory maintainer, and the same was true for those who did volunteer work.

    Additionally there is some scientific evidence that supplements can help suppress damaging free radical and inflammatory reactions that are linked to underlying aging processes. Although none have been proven to slow aging.

    Among others this includes alpha lipoic acid. Results from animal studies indicate that alpha lipoic acid may improve long-term memory. and holds promise for preserving brain cells following a stroke or other type of trauma that restricts blood flow to the brain.
