New Research on Skin Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid Announced by Ethical Alternative Products
Date:12/26/2013

Wyckoff, NJ (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) has become a common ingredient* in multivitamin formulas, anti-aging supplements, and even pet food. It is well-defined as a therapy for preventing diabetic polyneuropathies, and scavenges free radicals, chelates metals, and restores intracellular glutathione levels which otherwise decline with age. ALA has been described as a potent biological antioxidant, a detoxification agent, and a diabetes medicine; it has been used to improve age-associated cardiovascular, cognitive, and neuromuscular deficits, and has been implicated as a modulator of various inflammatory signaling pathways. This impressive array of cellular and molecular functions has piqued considerable interest among the lay public and the research community for the use of ALA both as a nutritive supplement and as a pharmacotherapy.

Adding to this already impressive array of favorable biological properties, new research** has demonstrated in rats that the topical application of alpha lipoic acid produced an increase in skin wound healing. On the seventh day after surgery, animals treated with alpha lipoic acid showed increased healing rates vs. control animals for the histological parameters analyzed.

“The above study adds new evidence that the topical application of alpha lipoic acid provides another effective delivery system for utilization of this remarkable natural substance,” stated Gerald Bruno, Ph. D., CEO and Founder of Ethical Alternative Products. “Topical cosmeceuticals containing alpha lipoic acid have been used for many years to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and recent research has demonstrated that products containing alpha lipoic acid are also effective in promoting healing of diabetic wounds, and hold great promise for protection of the skin from photodamage,” stated Bruno.

Ethical Alternative Products supplies high grade alpha lipoic acid products in both oral and topical dosage forms. Tendonex is a unique highly concentrated topical formulation of alpha lipoic acid that maximizes the beneficial properties of the alpha lipoic acid for use on the skin. ThioGel is the high bioavailability oral formulation of European-sourced alpha lipoic acid that has been a favorite of integrative and holistic practitioners for more than 10 years.
