ALA promotes the production of glutathione, an essential antioxidant, and can also recycle vitamins C and E, thereby enhancing their antioxidant activities.

Numerous scientific studies support the role of ALA in treating diabetic neuropathy. It does so by enhancing nitric oxide-mediated endothelium-dependent vasodilation, thus improving microcirculation in patients with diabetic neuropathy. In addition to its array of benefits, ALA assists in maintaining cardiovascular health.
