About essential fatty acids
The molecules of fatty acids consist of a long chain of carbon atoms, and at the end of this chain, there is a carboxyl acid group. Bound to the carbon atoms are hydrogen atoms. The carbon atoms are chained together by single or bouble bounds.
The body uses carbon atom chains with differnt pattern of doible and single bounds for different processes. The body is not able to make chains with all needed patterns itself, and have to get a supply of chains with the required pattern through fatty acids containing such chains.
These fatty acids are called essential fatty acids. Chemically they are divided in omega-3, omega-6, omega-9 types according to the distance of the first double bound from the carboxyl gtoup.
Good sources of essential fatty acids are fat fish, nuts sunflower seeds, almonds, wheat- and other corn germ, or oils from these sources. There are also supplements on the marked made from these sources.
About alpha-lipoic acid
Alpha-lipoic acid is a sulphur containing carboxylic acid with 8 carbon atoms. In the opposite end of the carboxylic group 3 of the carbon atoms and two sulphur atoms are linked together to a ring structure.
The R-enantiomer of the substance works as a cofactor, that is a central working tool, in many enzymes that catalyse reactions inside the human body, especially those enzymes that catalyze reactions with nutrients and oxygen to yield energy for bodily processes. It also plays as a tool in the regulatory mechanisms of bodily processes as the immune system processes and repair processes.
All food contain lipoic acid, but especially kidney, heart, liver, spinach, broccoli, and yeast extract. Naturally occurring lipoic acid is always covalently bound and not immediately available from dietary sources and the amount is samll even in the most ambundant sources. Therefore all lipoic acid used as a dietry supplemant is made synthetic.
Alpha.lipoic acid gives many health benefits. The basic action of the substance when used as a supplement seem to make the body more able to fight down infections and repair damages done by disease processes.
Alpha-Lipoic acid can act as an anti-oxydant, but also as an oxydant in specific reactions. Recent findings suggest that lipoic acid's beneficial effects are due to modulation of regulatory mechisms in the human and animal body, which actually occur because of specific oxydative actions.
Specific benefits of the substance are:
- Alpha-lipoic acid seems to help the body manage the intake, distribution and utilization of glucose better and thereby be a help for diabetic people.
- The substance helps to protect the nervous system form damage and help it to repair damages allready done. It is effective against periferial neuropaty that gives symptoms like: pain, burning sensations, numbness, tingling, weakness, and itching.
- Alpha-lipoic acid works to prevent aging signs and age related diseases.
- The substance has the ability to eliminate harmful elements that come into the body by binding to these substances. Alpha-lipoic acid is soluble both in fat and in water and therefore it eliminates harmful elements more totally than many other anti-oxydants.
- Alpha-lipoic acid and the related compound dyhydro-lipoic acid helps to protect body tissues, and especially heart and brain tissue, against damages caused by lack of oxygen, and helps the tissue to regain normal properties after such damage. Thus it can help to lesson the damages done by strokes and infarction and help to regain from such events.
- The substance helps to protect against heavy metal poisening and to regain from damages done by such poisoning.
- The substance is very safe with only rare side effects. The substance is reported to sometimes cause headache, tingling or a "pins and needles" sensation, skin rash or muscle cramps.
