ALPHA LIPOIC ACID INTRAVENOUS INFUSION

ABOUT THE SERVICES

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent antioxidant that protects cells from free radical damage. ALA is required for healthy cell metabolism, and it helps regenerate glutathione — another major antioxidant. Glutathione is critical to healthy ageing and disease prevention; insufficient glutathione increases the risk of disease.

The body increases its production of free radicals during periods of high physical stress and oxygen utilisation, a condition called oxidative stress. During endurance training, an athlete’s oxygen use can rise 20-fold, generating a huge increase in the production of free radicals capable of damaging muscles, cells and tissues, causing  cancer and other diseases and speeding up the ageing process.

A number of well-designed studies and meta-analyses have shown that intravenous infusion of ALA provides greater efficacy than oral doses of ALA. Antioxidant infusion therapy reduces oxidative stress in the body, prevents and reverses tissue damage, and initiates cell repair to reduce tissue inflammation and promote recovery from illness.

BENEFITS

Alpha lipoic acid treats and prevents type 1 and type 2 diabetes; has regenerative properties to treat liver diseases including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD); improves glycemic control; prevents common conditions resulting from poorly controlled diabetes including peripheral neuropathy, retinopathy, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, erectile dysfunction and cancer.

ALA promotes weight loss and inhibits fat cell formation; boosts HDL (good) cholesterol while reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol; capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, potentially useful in treating neurological conditions — dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and others; treats cancer and pre-cancer conditions; reduces lactate production to slow the growth of cancer cells; prevents degradation of colon cancer tumour suppressor gene p53.
