An antioxidant-rich chemical, that fights stress and a variety of neurodegenerative diseases.

A University of Massachusetts study also demonstrated that it increases cognitive performance in combination with L-Carnitine, Alpha-GPC, DHA, and phosphatidylserine.

Mitochondrial Antioxidant

Mitochondria and the Future of MedicineFrom Dr. Lee Know's recent book

additional ALA provided by supplements allows it to circulate in a “ free ” state , where it has the ability to function as both a water - and fat - soluble antioxidant . This is unique because most antioxidants are effective in only one area or the other . Vitamin C , for example , is usually restricted to the interior cytosolic ( watery ) compartment of cells , while vitamin E works at the level of the fatty cell membranes . Further , ALA has an important role in the production of glutathione , one of the “ primary ” antioxidants produced directly by the body . Where ALA surpasses other conventional antioxidants is that it is targeted to the mitochondria . Most other antioxidants can’t effectively concentrate at the level of the mitochondrion and so are almost meaningless in their ability to support the most important generator of free radicals .(2596-2603)

Research suggests that ALA increases brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which plays a major role in maintaining neurons and improving learning and memory. (p.139)

Cold Storage

ALA is not stable at room temperature for long . What happens is that elevated temperatures cause ALA molecules to polymerize ( link together to form chains ) , and this form doesn’t seem to be absorbable . For this reason , a stabilized R ( + ) ALA product or one that is sold from the fridge ( and stored in the fridge at home ) is best . At the very least , definitely avoid exposing ALA to any sources of heat (2628-2630)

You may be interested in taking it as an infoceutical - a non-pharmacological, side-effect-free version of the drug that takes advantage of the phenomenon of water memory - which is imprinted on water via quantum collocation and electromagnetism using this device...

Infocueticals typically have 1/3 or half the effect of the actual medicine being imprinted. If you're skeptical of Infopathy that's understandable, it's a game-changing application of a little-known scientific phenomenon. But I'd urge you to evaluate the scientific evidence (presented in my biohacker review) that downloadable medicine is no longer science fiction...


Dietary supplementation with a combination of alpha-lipoic acid, acetyl-L-carnitine, glycerophosphocoline, docosahexaenoic acid, and phosphatidylserine reduces oxidative damage to murine brain and improves cognitive performance.
