Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful both lipid and water
soluble antioxidant. Antioxidants are intimately involved in the
prevention of cellular damage -- the common pathway for cancer,
aging, and a variety of diseases.
This is a light soothing cream that will help improve
circulation in the eye area, particularly helpful for those who
work on computers for extended hours, or those who exert their eyes
extensively otherwise on a daily basis. The ALA water based
cream can even be used as a moisturizing facial cream in the winter
time. No matter how careful we are, because of its constant
exposure to climate, our facial skin has to bear the brunt of
seasonal changes. In the Winter time, with the drop of
temperatures, we will experience dryness, flakiness, and overall
lack of lustre. The water-based ALA cream will help restore and
protect from these by maintaining optimal circulation and flow of
nutrients and energy to the facial skin nerves and areas.
Sensitive areas like the eyes, run by 'alochak pitta', are by
nature hot. When circulation to the eyes and nerve extremities in
the eyes gets low, cooling and circulation enhancing products such
as ALA are ideal. This water based ALA Cream is ideal for use
during the daytime. Then for night time use, Triphala Ghee can be applied on the temples and
eye area to nourish and nurture.
An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of
other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that produces
free radicals. Free radicals are chemical byproducts produced
during the process of oxidation that converts nutrients to cellular
energy. As they oxidize, these compounds can become highly reactive
and harmful to the cells, distorting vital components and reducing
metabolic efficiency. Once formed, free radicals are highly
reactive. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when
they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the
cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To
prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of
antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact
with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital
molecules are damaged, resulting in disease, aging, and overall
depletion and exhaustion of our bodies. While the body usually can
manufacture enough lipoic acid for metabolic functions naturally,
supplementing can allow more optimal levels to circulate in a free
