Condition: Heavy metal chelator



DESCRIPTION: The process of extracting, holding onto and eliminating environmental toxins,industrial toxins and heavy metals we encounter daily that constitute hindrance to healing from the body is referred to as chelation. A heavy metal chelator should be able to permeate the cell easily and chelate the heavy metals. Alpha lipoic acid satisfies at least two of the above criteria; which are the absorption into the intracellular environment and complexing metals previously bound to other sulfhydryl proteins. ALA when found unbound in the circulation, is able to trap circulating heavy metals, thus preventing cellular damage caused by heavy metal toxicity. The fact that free ALA crosses the blood brain barrier is significant because the brain readily accumulates lead and mercury, where these metals are stored intracellularly in glial tissue. ALA scavenges hydroxyl radicals and can remove heavy metals by chelation and regenerates other antioxidants like glutathione, vitamin C, Co enzyme Q10 and vitamin E hence it is referred to an ideal chelator
