Our focus is that of the COVID-19 virus, seeking intervention to lessen its adverse impact.
Alpha lipoic acid is a compound whose use and research-proven benefit stem over 40 years. As to its application concerning viruses, it was previously used to address SARS-1 almost a decade ago. Appropriate use has shown success for the treatment of cancers, degenerative joint disease, cardiac, cerebral, and hepatic disease. At a time when we are facing a pandemic, this substance stimulates via the liver the manufacturing of a tri-peptide called L-glutathione. Its production directs the immune system to adversely impact viruses of respiratory and other etiologies in a physiologic manner, potentially reducing autoimmune-related side effects.
By entering “alpha lipoic acid” into the website https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov over 5,000 medical journal articles concerning alpha lipoic acid appear on this U.S. Government resource.
Alpha lipoic acid can cause a marked reduction in blood sugar levels, and this is most pronounced in patients with a diagnosis of diabetes. The therapeutic reduction of glucose can prove to be markedly beneficial: but a rapid drop in glucose levels is of concern. If you choose to utilize alpha lipoic acid, blood sugar levels must be followed closely, with correct doses of this supplement taken.
