Olimp ALA 200 is a dietary supplement containing pure alpha-lipoic acid, signed with the trademark Alipure®. It highlights the high purity of the active substance and guarantees advanced technology during production, free of chemical solvents.
The versatility of alpha-lipoic acid’s systemic activity makes it possible to use the supplement in many different cases. The preparation works fantastically in people struggling with the metabolic syndrome and sugar management disorders. It can serve as an element of preventing neurodegenerative diseases and ailments caused by the lack of balance between oxidation and reduction reactions. Physically active people are observed to experience increased capacity and energy levels.
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a saturated fatty acid. It can be found in some food products: offal, spinach and broccoli contain its large amounts. It is also synthesised both by human and animal organisms.
The substance is characterised by a vast range of effects on the organism. It plays the role of a cofactor of a large group and enzymes and a metal chelator, it sweeps free radicals from the organism, and participates in the process of energy production.
The chemical structure and physicochemical properties of alpha-lipoic acid determine its incredible antioxidant abilities. The compound very easily reacts with free radicals and neutralises them permanently. It reacts with nearly all types of radicals: singlet oxygen, peroxynitrite, hypochlorous acid, hydroxyl and peroxyl radicals. Moreover, it is both water- and fat-soluble, which lets it penetrate cell membranes and overcome biological barriers quickly.
The antioxidant properties of alpha-lipoic acid are strengthened by its ability to regenerate other antioxidants (like vitamins C and E). What is more, it stimulates the production of glutathione, that is the most important endogenous antioxidant.
Heavy metal chelation
Alpha-lipoic acid supplementation helps to remove heavy metals from the organism. The accumulation of heavy metals (mainly lead, mercury, cadmium) inhibits the functioning of all organs and systems in the organism. It can also handicap the body’s natural ability to dispose of toxins. Eliminating heavy metals is believed to be an efficient way of preventing neurodegenerative and cardiovascular system diseases.
Alpha-lipoic acid contains sulphur, thanks to which it binds with various metals easily. Chelate complexes formed in that way lose their toxic properties and become easily disposable. Some scientific research suggests that alpha-lipoic acid supplementation can also be used to deal with haemochromatosis, a serious condition caused by excessive iron absorption in the organism.
Metabolic disorder treatment
Alpha-lipoic acid is successfully used to treat metabolic syndromes and prevent diabetes complications. It helps to regulate glucose levels in serum and enhances insulin sensitivity. It can also reduce the degree of glycation that takes place within blood vessels as a result of elevated blood sugar levels.
The systemic activity of alpha-lipoic acid includes several mechanisms. It prevents problems with insulin production by inhibiting the deposition of triglycerides, which damage beta cells in the pancreas, that is structures responsible for proper insulin secretion. It can also stimulate skeletal system cells to use glucose efficiently. Apart from that, it prevents the occurrence of insulin resistance – it increases the efficiency of fatty acid oxidation, which prevents their accumulation. It is the pathological deposition of fatty acids that makes cells less susceptible to the activity of insulin.
Support for mitochondria
Scientific research demonstrates that alpha-lipoic acid can improve the efficiency of ATP and NADH synthesis. It increases the activity of mitochondrial enzymes, which are included in the electron transport chain and are responsible for the process of the Krebs cycle. It can also regulate AMPK expression. That activity leads to an increase in vitality, better physical capacity, and slower aging processes in the organism
To sum up, Olimp ALA 200 is a supplement with very high health-promoting potential. Its efficiency is guaranteed by the undoubtedly high quality of the active substance and its appropriately high dosage. The preparation is recommended both for seniors and young people. It can slow down aging processes and reduce the risk of developing diseases of affluence.
ALA should bring best results when used 15-30 minutes before meals rich in carbohydrates. The dose should be adjusted individually to your goals, however, it is usually 1-3 capsules a day.

ALA (alpha-lipoic acid) is a vitamin-like substance, a metabolite of catecholamines with strong antioxidant properties, it enhances anti-free-radicals action of some vitamins (A and E). ALA is synthesized at low levels by the body. It is a component of such products as broccoli, yeast, chicken liver, spinach. In the medicine it is used in the prevention of diabetic neuropathy (tissues shows a sensitivity to the insulin hormone, and it stimulates blood sugar levels). It has a positive effect on the functioning of the circulatory system and heart by the anti-arteriosclerosis action. It improves transport of creatine. It affects the storage of glycogen in muscle and liver.
Antioxidant properties of ALA are used in sports supplementation, along with the assimilation of nutrients. ALA is found in the form of mono-formula and is a compound of multicomponent products as: amino acids, creatine nitrogen boosters, as well as insulin-like (insulin-mimetic substances).
