The Super Antioxidant is now found!
We might not have noticed it, but our environment is continuously and rapidly changing every single day.
Along with these changes, we are more exposed to some external sources such as radiation, ozone, cigarette smoking, various industrial chemicals, and environmental pollutants, which causes our bodies to react and produce molecules with unpaired electrons called “free radicals” that are harmful to our well-being. Luckily, our bodies are also naturally capable of protecting us from the unhealthy effects of free radicals by generating substances, usually found in our food or supplements, known as antioxidants, that prevent or slow down the occurrence of cell damage. One of the antioxidants that have many benefits to our body is Alpha-lipoic acid, the Super Antioxidant.
Alpha-lipoic acid or ALA is an antioxidant produced naturally in our body and sometimes found in different health supplements. It is known for its functions at the cellular level as it is responsible for attacking “free radicals” and breaking down carbohydrates useful for energy production. ALA is both fat and water-soluble, meaning, it can perform its benefits throughout the body whether in water (like vitamin C) or fatty tissues (like vitamin E). Many experts claim that Alpha-lipoic acid is great for our overall health. It is very helpful especially for those who experience nerve pain due to diabetes simply because it lowers blood sugar levels and improves insulin activity. In addition, some research also shows that it decreases the level of cholesterol or “bad” fats in the blood that may cause people to be vulnerable to different diseases, that is to say, ALA also reduces the signs of obesity.
Aside from the positive effects mentioned above, some studies suggest that Alpha-lipoic acid may also have benefits in our skin health as it regenerates other antioxidants such as vitamin C and E to make them active again and protect us from ultraviolet light, air pollution, cigarette smoke, and other environmental factors.
Furthermore, it is also said that ALA lessens some signs of aging because of the following:
1. It protects the skin from too much exposure to pollutants.
2. It lightens up dark spots / reduces pigmentation due to skin damage.
3. It reduces oxidative stress, and
4. It speeds up wound healing.
Proven with scientific facts, Alpha-lipoic acid is indeed beneficial for our overall health. That is why we suggest that people should consume Japonesa ® Total Well-being, Immuno boost & Beauty Capsule powered with Setria ® L-Glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid & Sodium Ascorbate using Zeal Technology, supplement regularly since it contains enough ALA for every capsule that will surely give our body the strength and protection we need as we continue to exist in an unpredictable and ever-changing world!
