Lipoic Acid and Blood Sugar

Lipoic acid is a great antioxidant, but it also gives a boost to the way your body uses blood sugar. In diabetic patients given alpha lipoic acid, researchers found a significant drop in fasting blood sugar  as well as post-meal glucose levels.  In diabetics, these tests are high and reflect difficulty removing sugar from the blood and using it as energy.
