Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/17/2014 -- Superior Labs, Inc., one of America's leading nutritional supplement company, today announced the arrival of its products on the Amazon marketplace. This makes it easy for anyone to order their supplements from around the world. It also allows customers to gain the advantage of benefits like Amazon's A-z guarantee, inexpensive shipping options, and other bonuses.
One of the company's newest products is an alpha lipoic acid (ALA) supplement. "Alpha lipoic acid is a very unique antioxidant," said Christie Owens of Superior Labs. "Most antioxidants can be dissolved in water or fat, but not both. ALA, on the other hand, is both fat- and water-soluble. This means that it can work throughout the body to reduce levels of free radicals and combat aging and disease."
Most free radicals have another property, and that is that they get used up by the body as they fight free radicals. ALA, however, can return some of these other types of antioxidants to an active state. This means that it not only works directly, but can increase the effectiveness of other supplements in the same category.
"ALA's power doesn't stop here," said Owens. "According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, studies have shown that it helps control blood sugar and that its action against free radicals may help combat the tingling, stinging, and other sensations felt by diabetics who suffer from peripheral neuropathy."
It can also pass through the blood-brain barrier, so it could protect against stroke and dementia. Studies exploring this aspect have not yet taken place, so at this time, a brain-protective effect is simply a possibility. This, however, doesn't mean that it won't work in the brain. It simply means that whether it does or not is still in the question stage. The same goes for predicted benefits in combating glaucoma and other such diseases.
"So far, studies have been very positive when it comes to lowering blood sugar," Owens explained. "Scientists are still looking at other possible health benefits. In our opinion, it's a good idea to start supplementing with alpha lipoic acid right away. Some benefit has been found, and no negatives have been discovered."
One thing buyers need to be careful of is that they get alpha lipoic acid. Another acid, alpha linolenic acid, is also commonly abbreviated "ALA." Therefore, it's always good to check the label to make sure the ALA is of the lipoic type. This will ensure that the blood sugar-lowering variety is what is being purchased.
