Following information taken from "The X Factor Diet” by Leslie Kenton (highly recommended).
"Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is unique. An antioxidant also found in foods like liver and yeast, it is now increasingly taken in therapeutic doses ranging from 100-600mg a day. It is a sulphur-containing, vitamin-like substance needed in the body’s production of energy at a cellular level. It has a proven ability to lower chronically high levels of insulin and glucose. Researchers using it increasingly believe that it may be possible to use ALA to prevent or reverse damage caused by high levels of insulin and glucose in the body. Generally speaking, people with hyperinsulinaemia or diabetes have inadequate levels of this substance in their bodies.
ALA is especially important in restoring and preventing nerve damage. It is also an excellent anti-ageing supplement, and appears to be capable of recycling vitamin E and vitamin A in the body after they have been used up in free radical reactions. Many experts in functional medicine believe not only that it helps improve glucose metabolism, restore liver and brain health and prevent nerve disorders, but that it can also reduce the incidence of glaucoma and protect the body against heavy metals and radiation damage.”
