We all know that eating your greens is healthy for you, but did you know that there’s often goodness beyond the fiber and vitamins?
For example, vegetables like broccoli and spinach contain a nutrient called Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), a vitamin-like antioxidant that is involved in many important functions in your body and supports good health in several ways.**
First, ALA is involved in sugar uptake (or absorption).** It supports sugar metabolism, which means it helps turn glucose into energy your body can use.** ALA also supports healthy nerve function.**
But ALA also stands out as an antioxidant, helping to fight cell-damaging free radicals in the body.** Free radicals are natural by-products of your body’s daily metabolism, and ALA helps neutralize cell-damaging free radicals in both the water-soluble and fat-soluble compartments in the cell.** That means this versatile nutrient is more supportive in its antioxidant action.** ALA also helps establish a cellular antioxidant network because it supports the regeneration of glutathione—one of the body’s primary antioxidants—and recycles Vitamins C and E, and Coenzyme Q-10.**
So whether it’s ALA’s abilities in metabolic functioning or antioxidant properties, this nutrient serves an important role in keeping you feeling good.**
