ALA Xtreme is a whole-body, multifunctional antioxidant that helps to maintain healthy, well-functioning cells. ALAmax CR is designed to neutralize free radicals. ALA Xtreme has the ability to destroy free radicals in both the water-based and lipid-based portion of cells, making it the ideal whole-body antioxidant. In addition, ALAmax CR helps the body synthesize glutathione, the body’s own master detoxifier. ALA Xtreme also “recharges” other important antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, and CoQ10, giving them the ability to continue fighting free radicals for extended periods of time. Unlike regular alpha-lipoic acid, ALA Xtreme’s patented, controlled-release formulation provides extended protection. In addition, biotin supports the function of alpha-lipoic acid in regulating glucose metabolism.
