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. 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 cell, distorting vital
components and reducing metabolic efficiency. 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 can
naturally manufacture enough lipoic acid for metabolic functions,
supplementing can allow more optimal levels to circulate in a free
This Alpha Lipoic Acid or ALA Massage Oil has been
carefully formulated by Vaidya Mishra usisng his SVAyurveda
protocol to improve your body’s overall circulation without heating
If you tend to have poor circulation but are prone to pitta
inflammation and heat, this oil is idea for you, specially in the
winter time. If you use Pitta massage oil, you can blend the ALA
oil with your current oil in the ratio of 50/50 or 80/20 as per
your preference. If you are a Vata type and need more thermogenic
herbs, you can combine this oil, 50/50 or 80/20 with your vata oil
as a mixture and apply. The ALA oil will boost the herbs and
ingredients in any other formula that it is combined with. It will
act as a catalyst to enhance the effects and supply added
circulation so the herbs are delivered even faster and more
efficiently. You can do regular abhyanga massage with the ALA oil,
warming it applying it leaving it on for 30 minutes and then
showering. Or you can also do a daily quick massage on arms and
legs only, after shower. You can do this throughout the year for
added cumulative benefit.
