Alpha Lipoic Acid

Give your skin cells a boost

Give your skin cells a boost.

In the battle against aging skin, alpha lipoic acid is being recognized as a powerful antioxidant that can help keep those wrinkles at bay. According to Dr. Nicholas Perricone, author of The Wrinkle Cure (Warner Books, 2001), wrinkles can result from inflammation and free radical damage that occurs from too much sun as well as the toxins we ingest from the air we breathe, the water we drink and the foods we eat.

But alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that can provide your skin with the protection it needs. Part of a natural enzyme complex that increases energy production in aging skin cells, it helps repair cellular damage and expel waste products. For added anti-inflammatory and cell-protective powers, it's often combined with vitamins C and E. Look for these ingredients on the labels of the natural skin care products you purchase.
