Alpha Max was designed to help support healthy antioxidant levels, healthy blood sugar, and nerve function. It has a unique patented slow release formula for maximum absorption. Our formula also includes the added B vitamin, Biotin because alpha lipoic acid tends to compete with it. Many people with gluten sensitivity and celiac disease develop gluten induced nerve damage and research has shown alpha lipoic acid to be beneficial and safe for those struggling with neuropathy. Additionally, Alpha Max helps regenerate the antioxidants, Vitamin E, C, and CoQ10. Alpha Lipoic Acid also helps support blood sugar metabolism, it helps increase the master antioxidant glutathione, and thus, supports health detoxification.
