Alpha Lipoic Acid, High Strength Antioxidant for Male & Female Fertility


Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a well-established antioxidant with suggested benefits for both male and female fertility. What makes ALA special is it has a rare ability to act as both a water-soluble and fat-soluble antioxidant, meaning it can act throughout the body. As well as playing a role in energy production throughout the body. 

ALA has been suggested to support sperm and egg quality by helping to reduce oxidative stress and support mitochondrial health. Plus, it can be particularly beneficial for those with PCOS to improve insulin resistance and support ovulation.

Who is it for?

ALA is recommended for both men and women looking to support fertility, with particular benefit for those with PCOS. ALA functions in two key ways which make it key for fertility support: as an antioxidant and in energy production. 

As an antioxidant, it reduces oxidative stress in the body associated with poor sperm and egg health. ALA functions as an antioxidant while also being able to regenerate other antioxidants in the body. ALA is also found naturally in the mitochondria, where it has a vital role in energy production, a key factor in sperm and egg development. 

In PCOS, ALA may be used to help improve insulin sensitivity and promote ovulation. 

Our ALA is a 50:50 mix of natural (R-ALA) and synthetic (S-ALA). This is because R-ALA, when separated from the S-form, is very unstable and deteriorates quickly, making it less effective.
