Benefits for Anti-Aging
By: Bruce Brightman - Founder - LifeSource Vitamins
It has been demonstrated that free radical damage is one of the leading
causes of the symptoms we know as aging. As we get older, the levels of
free radicals in our bodies increase, causing a decrease in the efficiency
of our cells. This leads to a lack of energy, lower immune system function
among other issues.
Anti-Aging and Alpha Lipoic Acid
Not coincidentally, the levels of ALA in our bodies decrease with age as
the free radical activity increases. Supplementation with ALA can help
reverse this process.
Dr. Tory Hagen at the UC Berkley conducted a study to verify that the free
radical levels increased substantially as we age and if that condition
could be reversed with supplementation of Alpha Lipoic Acid.
In his study he used 2 groups of rats, one young, and one old. It was
determined that the free radical levels were much higher in the older rats.
Using video cameras and computers to analyze their movements, he determined
that the older rats only moved about and explored their cages one third as
much as the younger rats. They were also less active in other ways,
expending less energy grooming themselves, etc.
After only two weeks of ALA supplementation they saw a significant decrease
in the levels of free radicals and an increase in levels of glutathione
similar to those in the younger rats. ALA also wiped out the age associated
increase in DNA damage to the heart, bringing levels back to those seen in
The change could be seen more dramatically in the old animals appearance
and in their activity. They doubled the amount of exploring in their cages
and also appeared to be otherwise more active than the animals who did not
get the ALA supplementation.
