Thioctic Acid (also known as Alpha Lipoic Acid)

 Thioctic Acid (also known as Alpha Lipoic Acid) – ALA is a fatty acid found naturally in skin cells and a potent antioxidant that has ability to scavenge free-radicals which lead to premature aging and wrinkling. “But unlike other antioxidants, it’s one of the few antioxidants that is both fat- and water-soluble, meaning it can work inside the cell and in the cell membrane. In one study published by the British Journal of Dermatology, 33 middle-aged women were treated twice daily for 12 weeks—half the face with a 5% ALA cream, the other half with a control cream. Skin quality improved significantly—by about 50%--in terms of smoothness and wrinkle reduction. Alpha lipoic acid has two important characteristics. Firstly, as a fundamental co-enzyme in several energy-producing reactions on a cellular level. And secondly, as a small but powerful antioxidant accessible to all parts of the body. (Truth in Aging)
