Alpha Lipoic Acid by Olympian Labs Feeling like your skin is aging faster recently? Do you want to help keep your body looking young and mind sharp? As we age, our epidermis needs external supplements to help keep the elasticity that we naturally have earlier in life. Olympian Labs’ Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is an antioxidant that neutralizes harmful chemicals called free radicals and thereby helps prevent cell damage in the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid is an unusual antioxidant as it is both water-soluble and fat-soluble in cells and tissues. UV radiation of the sun causes an inflammatory condition in the skin and a massive release in free radicals, which leads to premature aging.  ALA improves skin texture and may help protect the skin from sun exposure. Internally, ALA helps protect the brain from excessive free radicals that are present in degenerative brain diseases. Preliminary evidence suggests that lipoic acid could also offer welcome relief for migraine sufferers and reduce frequency and intensity of migraines. Olympian Labs’ ALA helps amplify the positive effects of other important antioxidants in the body such as Glutathione and Coenzyme Q10—two essential compounds in the fight against aging and disease. In addition, it also works with B-vitamins to support energy production in the body by converting carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, into stored energy. It is also 100% Vegetarian!
