Dr. Sivak's Notes:

Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant found in every cell of the body that helps turn glucose into energy. These antioxidants attack free radicals that can cause harmful reactions and damage cells.

This antioxidant is both fat and water soluble which means it can work throughout cells in the body.

• Active ingredient in the Perricone, MD line.

Each tube is enough for about 4 fl oz of  oil at approximately 1% concentration for a light peel. Use at 0.25% in a cream or oil base (1.2 g in 16 oz of cream or oil) or less for use as an antioxidant. It will dissolve almost instantly and gives the cream a soft yellow tint. Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream, European Cream, ELS, or Rosehip Oil . It may also be added to soap and can be combined with our other actives.

Alpha Lipoic Acid.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a naturally occurring dithiol (--SH) complex, and is the prosthetic (i.e. non-proteic) group of several very important enzymes, including the transacetylase part of the enzyme complex that catalyzes the decarboxylation of pyruvate so that the remaining 2-carbon group can enter the Krebs cycle. Aside from its enzymatic role, in vitro and in vivo studies suggest that ALA also acts as a powerful micronutrient with diverse pharmacologic and antioxidant properties.

    This is a GREAT anti-inflammatory ingredient. In a body lotion it is a life saver to prevent or minimize sunburn after days in the summer sun. Soothes irritated & inflamed skin.
