Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a fairly unknown natural antioxidant. It is a chemical produced in plants and animals, that contains sulfur and has the ability to restore other major antioxidants. It also has the ability to protect the body from oxidative stress and tension. It is noted for its ability to lower cancer cell formation, with little to no adverse side effects, making it a considerable alternative to chemotherapy treatment. Alpha lipoic acid is found in many fruits and vegetables, such as spinach, broccoli, yams carrots, beets and brussel sprouts. It is used by many wellness practitioners in high dosages to assist with cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative issues and problems with auto-immune disorders, like issues arising from diabetes. ALA is also a great supplement to increase performance and regenerate the antioxidant effect of Vitamin C.
Conventional cancer treatments use processes that do more harm than good. They cause more damage to DNA, cellular damage and create free radicals. Alpha lipoic acid aids in the prevention of metastatic cancers spreading. It slows down angiogenesis, the process through which new blood vessels are formed, that supply cancer cells. Additionally, Alpha lipoic acid helps make antioxidants more available to cells, decreasing the damage done at the cellular level.
Alpha lipoic acid has been proven to increase the production of oxygen inside cancer cells. This increase triggers apoptosis, the process of programmed cell death, and eliminates the mutated cells.
