A powerful antioxidant derived from coconut oil, alpha lipoic acid (ALA) helps improve insulin sensitivity and control the effects of oxidation that can lead to nerve damage. This fat and water-soluble antioxidant capsule also helps combat the free radical damage responsible for the premature aging of cells.
People with diabetes can suffer from various nerve problems (diabetic neuropathy), ranging from pin-pricking sensations to complete loss of feeling. Poor blood sugar control and oxidation contribute to diabetic neuropathy. There are natural antioxidants that improve insulin sensitivity and the body’s ability to process sugar effectively, supporting nerve function. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant derived from coconut oil that helps control the effects of oxidation, which can lead to nerve damage. ALA’s antioxidant effect is multiplied by its ability to “recycle” other antioxidants already used by the body. Studies in diabetics experiencing symptoms of diabetic neuropathy show that ALA supplementation provides significant antioxidant support.
