Benefits for Diabetes - Alpha Lipoic Acid
Diabetes Mellitus is a group of chronic diseases associated with abnormally
high levels of sugar in the blood. Glucose (sugar) builds up in the
bloodstream as a result of the body's inability to produce insulin (which
regulates blood/sugar levels) or the inability of insulin in the body to
control sugar levels.
Diabetics suffer from many symptoms and complications. These include, but
are not limited to; neurological, vascular, kidney and visual problems.
Neuropathy is also a very common chronic problem for diabetics.
Diabetes and Alpha Lipoic Acid
For well over 30 years physicians in Germany have been clinically treating
Diabetics with ALA. Studies worldwide have shown ALA's ability to normalize
glucose uptake and utilization. In one study, ALA was even shown to prevent
diabetes in 70% of the animals tested. In another study type II diabetics
were given 500mg of ALA daily and in 10 days saw a 30% increase in insulin
stimulated glucose disposal.(2)
Nerve damage or neuropathy affects over 50% of diabetics and is one of its
most damaging complications. A study published in "Diabetes Care" has shown
that supplementing with ALA can partly restore diabetic nerve function
after only four months of high-dose oral treatment.(1)
