Alpha-lipoic acid is a sulphur-containing vitamin-like compound (vitaminoid). It is an important multifunctional antioxidant that is both effective in water as well as in a fat-soluble environment. Alpha-lipoic acid can be used to convert glutathione again in its active form (recycle), and is of interest for the carbohydrate metabolism. Tissues that are particularly rich in alpha-lipoic acid are tissues with intensive metabolism, such as the brains, heart and liver.
Foods contain only minor amounts of alpha-lipoic acid. The natural R (+) form is characterised by a high biological availability and has the ability to stimulate glucose uptake into the skeletal muscle.
