Lipoic acid powder, whose molecular formula is C8H14O2S2, is an organic compound that can be used as a coenzyme to participate in acyl transfer in the metabolism of substances in the body, and can eliminate free radicals that cause accelerated aging and disease. Lipoic acid enters cells after being absorbed in the body through the intestines, and has both fat-soluble and water-soluble properties.
|Other name:||DL-lipoic acid; DL-α-lipoic acid; alpha-lipoic acid; α-lipoic acid; α-lipoic acid;|
In the beginning, lipoic acid powderwas used as a medicine for diabetes, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan classified it as a medicine, but in fact, it has many functions in addition to curing diabetes. Therefore, in June 2004, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan classified it as a medicine. From the classification of medicines to food. Then we will introduce its function:
*stabilization of blood sugar
In fact, lipoic acid is mainly used to prevent the combination of sugar and protein, which means it has an "anti-glycation" effect, so it can easily stabilize the blood sugar level.

*recover from fatigue.
As lipoic acid can increase the rate of energy metabolism and effectively convert the food eaten into energy, it can quickly eliminate fatigue and make the body feel less tired.
The constituent molecules of lipoic acid for improving dementia are quite small, so it is one of the few nutrients that can reach the brain. It also has continuous antioxidant activity in the brain and is considered to be quite effective for improving dementia.
studies have specifically focused on lipoic acid as an antioxidant. It was found that lipoic acid can protect liver and heart damage, inhibit the occurrence of cancer cells in the body, and relieve allergies, arthritis and asthma caused by inflammation in the body. Wait.
*beauty and anti-aging
lipoic acid powder has surprising antioxidant capacity, can remove the active oxygen components that cause skin aging, and because it has a smaller molecule than vitamin E, plus it is both water-soluble and fat-soluble, So skin absorption is quite easy.
