Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a fatty acid found in mitochondria and increases levels of anti-oxidant enzymes, key to increased energy production. As an anti-aging ingredient some of the aesthetic damages caused by oxidation can be reversed.

For patients with diabetes, ALA has been shown to reduce both the pain and internal damage caused by the disease.
