Lipoic Acid Plus is a formula designed to help support healthy blood sugar levels and insulin balance. It combines lipoic acid with biotin (vitamin B7) and the amino acid taurine. Long-term supplementation of lipoic acid may reduce biotin levels because lipoic acid competes for biotin-dependent enzymes. This is why they are supplied together. Taurine and biotin also play important roles in fostering healthy insulin function, so it acts synergistically with lipoic acid to aid in blood sugar regulation.

- Blood sugar regulation
Lipoic acid is a naturally occurring compound that is produced in the body. It acts as a strong antioxidant and also supports the regulation of blood sugars. Studies indicate that lipoic acid aids healthy blood sugar levels by optimizing the function of insulin receptors (the sites where insulin attaches to cells so it can do its job) in order to support proper insulin balance. Antioxidants are substances that fight damaging free radicals in the body and, thus, are critical to the body’s overall health and energy. Lipoic acid acts as an antioxidant, and also regenerates other important antioxidants, such as vitamins E and C.
Biotin is involved in the manufacture of fatty acids and glucose. It supports the health of the skin, nerves, digestive tract, metabolism and cells. It also helps to support insulin sensitivity, which means that the body is able to use insulin efficiently and effectively to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Taurine is an amino acid that regulates the levels of water and mineral salts in the blood. It also possesses beneficial antioxidant properties and assists with a healthy inflammatory response.
