This blend of vitamin C (as sodium ascorbate) with R-lipoic acid (as sodium R-lipoate) simultaneously supports the body™s antioxidant status while supporting endogenous production of glutathione.* As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, inhibits lipid peroxidation of cellular membranes, and supports levels of the other necessary antioxidants vitamin E and glutathione.* Beyond its role as an antioxidant, vitamin C supports normal immune system function, cholesterol metabolism, and the growth and repair of collagen. It also is a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions, and is necessary for the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.*
Lipoic acid has been shown to extend the biological activity of vitamins C and E, also raising ubiquinol (commonly known as CoQ10) levels and endogenous production of glutathione via the Nrf2 nuclear transcription pathway.* Lipoic acid is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and it has been shown to have neuroprotective effects.
