Alpha-lipoic acid, sometimes referred to simply as lipoic acid, is produced in the body, specifically in the mitochondria, our little power plants for energy production. Unfortunately, it is only produced in very small amounts in the body and fortunately it is soluble in both water and fat, so it can be easily supplemented in the form of a dietary supplement.
So-called ALA affects almost every cell in the body. Studies have found a wide range of positive effects on our body, but unfortunately no health claims can be made because it is not approved by the EU Commission.
There are no known serious side effects when taking alpha-lipoic acid.
