Basic knowledge of how the body works will help you understand the importance of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) to good health. Antioxidant compounds fulfill a vital function by protecting cells against the damage that free radicals cause. ALA’s antioxidant qualities boost the body’s defenses against infection. The body naturally produces a small amount of ALA, but certain vegetables such as asparagus also contain significant deposits. You can also get ALA supplements from natural health stores. Furthermore, the natural production of ALA declines as the body ages, and this makes it more important to use these supplements.

1. Powerful antioxidant properties

The prime ALA benefits come from its antioxidant properties. In order to naturally maintain a good balance of antioxidant and free radical compounds, a healthy person should maintain an active lifestyle and live in a clean environment. However, if poor lifestyle choices, environmental pollution or other factors disturb this equilibrium, the free radicals start to damage cells. In these situations, taking ALA and generally boosting antioxidants can help to protect against such damage.
