Lipoic acid is a unique water- and fat-soluble antioxidant that helps to maintain good health.1 In both its oxidized and reduced forms, lipoic acid can scavenge free radicals, regenerate endogenous antioxidants (such as glutathione and vitamins C and E), and bind metal ions to reduce metal-induced oxidative damage.1 Because it supports antioxidant defence in nearly every part of the cell using a variety of actions, it is known as the “universal antioxidant.”1,2 As the typical Western diet provides low amounts of lipoic acid and humans produce this compound in low levels, daily supplementation is an ideal way of increasing the intake of this valuable antioxidant.1
