Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a coenzyme that is a very effective antioxidant. Alpha-Lipoic Acid has the capability of fighting free radicals in both fatty environments and water-based environments, such as muscle and skin. Where is it found? The body makes small amounts of alpha lipoic acid. There is only limited knowledge about the food sources of this nutrient. However, foods that contain mitochondria (a specialized component of cells), such as red meats, are believed to provide the most alpha lipoic acid. Supplements are also available
