The Journal of the American Diabetes Freedom Review Medical Association (JAMA) has published numerous studies done by different researchers worldwide. These studies concluded that ALA has positive effects in preventing complications brought on by consistently high blood sugar levels. A study carried out by researchers at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, consisted of 84 diabetic patients who were given alpha-lipoic acid 600 mg twice daily for 18 months. After that period, 35 people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes were found to have a slower progression of their diabetes as opposed to 49 patients that served as the control group. Also, they discovered less protein was excreted in their urine, which means that nephropathy was somehow halted. These scientifically proven findings are good news! How does alpha-lipoic acid work? Of course the magical action of ALA is it's anti-oxidant properties. As an anti-oxidant: it counteracts the damage done to nerve cells, particularly the oxidative stress brought about by long term high blood sugar levels it offers impressive protection against glycation and aging induced damage to your heart, blood vessels, kidneys and nerves it also has the ability to improve blood flow which helps in the battle against neuropathy and other complications associated with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes A person in good health is often recommended a dose as low as 10-50 mg of ALA once daily, taken an hour or two before meals. Side effects for a higher dose may cause abnormal heart rhythms. However, the Linus Pauling Institute recommends 200-400 mg.
