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.**
