Alpha Lipoic Acid IV Therapy

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Reduce Pain, Regain Control

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is an antioxidant that is made by the body and is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose into energy.

Although ALA is found in some food sources, it is not enough
in concentration to have any effect.
Therefore, we give it as IV therapy.


Ingredients: Alpha Lipoic Acid

Treatment Time: 60-90 Minutes

Powerful Antioxidant

Antioxidants are substances that attack "free radicals," waste products created when the body turns food into energy. Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells in the body, making it harder for the body to fight off infections. They also damage organs and tissues.

Unlike other antioxidants, which work only in water (such as vitamin C) or fatty tissues (such as vitamin E), alpha-lipoic acid is both fat- and water-soluble. That means it can work throughout the body. In addition, antioxidants are depleted as they attack free radicals, but evidence suggests alpha-lipoic acid may help regenerate these other antioxidants and make them active again.  One example of this is it’s ability to recycle glutathione- the body’s main antioxidant use to defend against free radicals.

Fighting Diabetes

Alpha-lipoic acid can lower blood sugar levels in diabetic patients.  Its ability to kill free radicals may help reduce pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in people who have nerve damage caused by diabetes (called peripheral neuropathy). Alpha-lipoic acid has been used for years for this purpose in Europe, and at least one study found that intravenous (IV) doses of alpha-lipoic acid helped reduce symptoms.

Other Uses

ALA can also be used for cardiac autonomic neuropathy, retinopathy, cataracts, dementia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), HIV/AIDS, cancer, liver disease, Wilson's disease, cardiovascular disease, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), intermittent claudication, and Lyme disease.

If you are receiving an ALA infusion you should expect the treatment to take 60-90 minutes and for it to be protected from light by being covered with an amber colored bag and run through amber tubing.

You should avoid taking ALA orally the day of your infusion.
