Lipoic acid dietary supplement, with added vitamins B1 and B6.
Lipoic acid is a naturally found substance in the body and in foods. In some circumstances, supplementation may be necessary, which is why it is considered a vitamin-like compound. Lipoic acid has an antioxidant function. Through direct action it reduces several signals of oxidative stress and encourages the recirculation of other important physiological antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Lipoic acid is involved in nutrient metabolism , and in particular, in the transformation of glucose and fat into ATP and therefore into energy.
