Lipoic acid is an octacarboxylic acid found in organisms. It is a dithiopentacyclic vitamin. It widely exists in biological tissues such as animals and plants. It participates in the tricarboxylic acid cycle and is an indispensable auxiliary factor in the production of ATP. Recent studies have found that many diseases are closely related to the accumulation of free radicals in the body. Antioxidants can scavenge free radicals, maintain the function and institutional integrity of important immune cells, and thus enhance the immune function of the body. Lipoic acid is one of the most effective natural antioxidants known. It is the only antioxidant with both fat solubility and water solubility. It can regenerate endogenous antioxidants. It can effectively resist a variety of free radicals and has the reputation of "universal antioxidant".
Lipoic acid can easily change with its reduction form.
Water solubility and fat solubility
Lipoic acid is both water-soluble and lipid-soluble, and has strong reducibility in lipid/water media, so it can exist in high concentration both inside and outside cells, and play a role in scavenging lipid-soluble and water-soluble free radicals.
Antioxidant activity can be achieved by chelating metal ions
Transition metal ions such as iron, copper, mercury and cadmium can catalyze the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to produce highly toxic hydroxyl radicals, leading to tissue damage. Lipoic acid and dihydrolipoic acid can chelate these metal ions and inhibit the formation of free radicals.
Regeneration of Antioxidants
Lipoic acid can be coupled with the redox of vitamin C and vitamin E to restore oxidized vitamin C and vitamin E to vitamin C and vitamin E, thus playing an antioxidant role again.
