Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that recycles and enhances reduced glutathione, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), and α-Tocopherol (Vitamin E) in the body. It can protect DNA and reduce insulin resistance. It also can reduce diabetic nerve damage with symptoms such as burning, numbness and tingling (associated with Diabetes, Lyme disease and more!)

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT ALPHA LIPOIC ACID IV THERAPY
ALA is an essential fatty acid found in every cell of the human body. It is an essential component in the production of cellular energy. It is also an extremely efficient antioxidant. It can penetrate the blood brain barrier much more effectively than any other antioxidant. This compound is unique because it is able to function in both water and fat. This allows it to enter all parts of the cell and even penetrate nerve cells to protect them from free radical damage. It also has the ability to recycle other antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Glutathione after they’ve been used up. This fatty acid increases the natural biological formation of glutathione. It has been used in therapies for cataracts, glaucoma, MS, Lyme disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, insulin resistance, and peripheral neuropathies.
**Our protocol involves a gradual increase in dose with each IV infusion, ideally done 1-2 times weekly.
**High levels of this fatty acid can cause headaches, tingling, skin rashes and muscle cramps.
