Ultra Lipoic Forte 60 caps by Douglas Labs
Ultra Lipoic Forte 60 caps by Douglas Labs is a dietary supplement made for those wishing to increase the amount of lipoic acid in their bodies. This ingredient is a coenzyme that is a not a vitamin and is vital to the function of both antioxidant and metabolic activities. Each serving contains roughly 1000mg of pure alpha-lipoic acid.
The coenzyme itself is a part of many roles in the body, including metabolizing proteins, fats and carbohydrates and then disposing of the excess sugars derived from that process. It is also a scavenger of dangerous free radicals. After it is ingested, it eventually becomes a part of larger enzymes that do such things as generate energy within the cells and transport glucose and making sure it is properly metabolized by the body. Since 1959, it has been believed to act as an antioxidant. Due to its solubility in both fat and water, lipoic acid is one of the most versatile, being able to protect cells both internally and externally. In addition, it has the ability to suppress generating free radicals. Other benefits include extending the activity of vitamin E and C and regenerating glutathione.
