IV Therapy Ingredients

ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid)

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a key antioxidant and vital in most all body tissues. Referred to as the universal antioxidant, ALA supports other antioxidants, like vitamins C and E, and glutathione.

ALA is critical to mitochondrial replication. Mitochondria are tiny organelles inside human cells that help convert glucose to adenosine triphosphate, the energy molecule. Mitochondrial dysfunction is linked to aging and chronic disease in humans.

ALA is also fundamental to the breakdown of amino acids, the essential elements of proteins that are vital to new cell production. As we age, cellular turnover naturally slows. Insufficient levels of lipoic acid can reduce old cell replacement, which speeds aging.

When delivered via intravenous drip therapy, bypassing digestion, it quickly and efficiently enters depleted cells throughout the body for immediate use. For the treatment of serious diseases and health conditions, IV therapy is the delivery method of choice.

  • Anti-aging: ALA’s powerful antioxidant properties fight oxidative stress and protect cells from damage, slowing the aging process. ALA also fights systemic inflammation which is a major contributor to metabolic disorders like heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes.
  • Weight loss: ALA enhances glucose metabolism. Greater energy expenditure helps reduce fat stores and rev up your metabolism.
  • Vision health: ALA fights oxidative stress that damages optical nerves and cause eye-related disorders like retinal damage, macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and vision loss.
  • Liver health: ALA promotes liver health by protecting liver cells from oxidative stress damage and supporting the neogenesis of new liver cells. ALA fights many liver problems, including hepatitis B and C, autoimmune hepatitis, primary biliary cirrhosis, and other liver conditions.
  • Reversal of Type II diabetes and peripheral neuropathy: ALA improves insulin sensitivity of the cells, enabling them to use circulating glucose for energy production, thereby lowering your blood sugar. Effective in treating conditions associated with diabetes, including diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
  • Slows or stops cancer cell growth: Multiple studies have found ALA to be beneficial in the treatment of cancer. ALA has been shown to decrease the proliferation of cells in breast, ovarian, colorectal, and lung cancer. It also appears to slow the progression of pancreatic and thyroid cancer, and to enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy.
  • Treatment of dementia and cognitive decline: ALA penetrates the blood-brain barrier in protection of the mitochondria in brain tissue. Helpful to Alzheimer’s, and others suffering from memory loss, motor impairments, and reduced cognitive function. ALA also beneficial in treatment of multiple sclerosis.
