Amino Acids and Neuropathy

Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl L-Carnitine

Amino acids are the chemical units, or “building blocks” that make up protein. In its various forms protein participates in the vital chemical processes that sustain life.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) has been used to help with neuropathy. In fact, it is a powerful anti-oxidant which can help to protect the nerves so that no further damage is done. It does that, but for real help, Acetyl L-Carnitine has to be added.

Acetyl L-Carnitine improves the cells ability to produce energy, this allows the cells to do their jobs. But more energy creates more free-radicals. Adding Alpha Lipoic Acid to the Acetyl L-Carnitine handles these free radicals. The cell producing better, can now use cholesterol and B vitamins to repair the nerve cells.

These two supplements can allow faster results when taken along with the supplements that build healthy nerves. .See Nerve Health

Some remedies boast that they have R-alpha lipoic acid, the more natural kind. I would hope that they would use natural amino acids and not something made in a laboratory. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids that are made in a lab are not recognized by the body and not utilized properly.

But you also need Acetyl L-Carnitine along with the Alpha Lipoic Acid. And in order to build healthy nerves, they need to be taken with a formula that was designed to build healthy nerves.
