ALA: Alpha-Lipoic Acid a Weight-Loss Aid

Posted on Jan 09, 2017


EZ Diet Editor:  This is another of Dr. Perricone’s top ten weight loss supplements I’ve taken for as long as I’ve been on the Ezekiel Diet system of eating.

Swanson Health Products, $5.99 for 60 – 300 mg capsules (1 a day, two month supply). Or, I take the high potency (pictured) for $8.99 – 60 – 300 mg capsules.

Excerpt from a blog post at the Daily Perricone blog:

Super Supplement #2: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
Alpha lipoic acid is a superior anti-inflammatory, that penetrates all portions of the cell because it is both fat and water soluble. On a cellular level alpha lipoic acid exerts a wide variety of positive actions, all of them anti-inflammatory. In addition to its function as a powerful antioxidant/anti-inflammatory, alpha lipoic acid increases the body’s ability to take glucose into the cells. This increased sensitivity to insulin results in decreased blood sugar levels and accelerated weight loss.

DOSAGE RECOMMENDATIONS: Because alpha lipoic acid is found only in trace amounts in food, it must be taken as a supplement. Twenty-five to thirty milligrams is adequate for a young healthy person. I recommend anywhere from two to four hundred milligrams of alpha lipoic acid per day to my patients with specific health problems, or who are trying to lose body fat.

Alpha Lipoic Tips:
In the metabolic cycle, Alpha Lipoic Acid acts as a coenzyme in the production of energy by converting carbohydrates into energy (ATP).

ALA is the only antioxidant that can boost cellular levels of glutathione, the body’s most important antioxidant to overall health and longevity.

Take with meals.
