How alpha-lipoic acid prevents skin aging

Alpha-lipoic acid is a unique antioxidant because it prevents sugar from binding to proteins (a process called glycation). When sugar binds to a protein, the protein cross-links As a result, the small, narrow strands and coils that naturally slid together can no longer move freely by cross-linking, causing the skin to lose its elasticity, making the skin look old. Alfalipoic acid prevents this process and even reverses the binding of sugar to collagen, and by increasing the body’s sugar metabolism, it prevents its accumulation in the cell. Increased metabolism naturally repairs damage, in other words, it protects against collagen and prevents aging. In fact, when alpha-lipoic acid is taken orally, it protects all the proteins in the body against glycation.
