We are all chasing ageless beauty. The aim for many of us is to be forever young like Jennifer Lopez, Regina Hall and Sanaa Lathan who inexplicably but amazingly seem to have stopped ageing 20 years ago. What’s the secret, you ask? Could it be Alpha Lipoic Acid?
What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a super antioxidant which is naturally produced in your body in small quantities. It is formed in the mitochondria, also known as the powerhouse of all cells in your body. ALA is known to have powerful antioxidant properties which have been linked to a number of benefits such as slowed skin ageing, improved nerve function, reduced inflammation and lower blood sugar levels. At a cellular level, ALA assists the body in fighting free radicals and preventing oxidation of cells. This is the damage that, among many other health problems, can result in the premature ageing of the skin.
Do we need Alpha Lipoic Acid? The answer is YES! We absolutely do.
Why we love Alpha Lipoic Acid:
We love ALA because it is soluble in both water and oil which means that your body can easily absorb the vitamin regardless of what you choose to eat or drink. Unlike vitamin C and vitamin E which can be absorbed either through water or oil. Meaning that when you take vitamin C your body can only absorb it with water and when you take vitamin E your body can only absorb it from the oil in your food.
Alternatively, we recommend you take Alpha Lipoic Acid and other vitamins through IV treatments which allows you to take a higher dose of the vitamin and bypass the digestive system, giving your body a quicker shot of vitality.
Amazing Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid:
- Helps Eliminate Wrinkles: As a result of ALA’s ability to slow the breakdown of your skin’s collagen. It helps greatly reduce or completely remove fine lines and wrinkles on your face over time. It also helps decrease the size of your pores.
- Helps with anti-ageing: ALA helps revive dull and ageing skin. It treats under eye puffiness over time and gives your skin a healthy, youthful glow.
- Lightens dark spots caused by sun damage and improves the quality of your skin: ALA helps improve your skin tone and texture, making your skin soft and lightens your skin over time making it one even tone. It also improves the rate at which your skin heals wounds as well as skin issues caused as a result of cigarette smoke exposure.
