Alpha lipoic acid is a vitamin-like antioxidant. Alpha lipoic acid is sometimes referred to as the “universal antioxidant,” because it is soluble in both fat and water.
Alpha lipoic acid has several potential benefits for diabetics. It enhances glucose uptake in non-insulin-dependent diabetes (NIDDM), inhibits glycosylation (the abnormal attachment of sugar to protein), and has been used to improve diabetic nerve damage and reduce pain associated with that nerve damage. Most studies have used intravenous alpha lipoic acid, but oral supplementation has nonetheless proved partially helpful in treating at least one form of diabetic neuropathy, using 800 mg per day.
Preliminary evidence indicates that 150 mg of alpha lipoic acid, taken daily for one month improves visual function in people with glaucoma.
Alpha lipoic acid has been shown to inhibit the replication of the HIV virus in the test tube. However, it is not known whether supplementing with alpha lipoic acid would benefit HIV-positive people.
Alpha lipoic acid has significantly increased the survival rate of people who have eaten poison mushrooms.
