Alpha lipoic acid is a fatty acid that is produced by the body and absorbed from the food you eat. It has potent antioxidant properties and plays a crucial role in energy production by helping the body produce ATP - the body's cellular energy source.
Alpha lipoic acid, also called thiotic acid, is considered a 'conditionally essential antioxidant nutrient'. The body makes some of its own alpha lipoic acid, but you still need to get most of it from your food. It's most plentiful source is in red meat. Your body’s ability to make alpha lipoic acid declines with age, so you become more dependent on dietary sources.
