More specifically, you want help with Burn Carbohydrates with Antioxidants: Alpha Lipoic Acid- Thomas DeLauer?

what if I told you you could be your own little supplement Factory your own little antioxidant powerhouse that’s creating antioxidants as byproducts of cells to be able to fight free radicals and get the most out of your life what if you didn’t have to go to a supplement store and pick something off the shelf well I’m telling you there is something that is a byproduct of every single cell in your body and it’s called alpha lipoic acid and it is one of the most powerful antioxidants that is available now one of the most interesting things about alpha lipoic acid aside from the fact that it’s a powerful antioxidant is the fact that it is both water and fat soluble now if you see my other videos you see me talk about how important to know the difference between a water soluble vitamin and a fat soluble vitamin is see a water soluble vitamin can be excreted through your urine fat soluble vitamin usually has to be taken in or consumed along with fat in order to be absorbed well the cool thing about ala or alpha lipoic acid is since its naturally occurring in the body our bodies know how to break it down one way or the other well before I go into a lot of detail and how alpha lipoic acid can multiple a help you in terms of fat loss terms of muscle building I want to explain what an antioxidant is and how an antioxidant can actually play a pretty significant role when it comes to your metabolism you see an antioxidant is something that fights a free radical there free radicals we see among packages all the time right you buy a box of green teen it says helps eliminate free radicals well what is a free radical you see a free radical is a byproduct or a waste byproduct of any kind of food metabolism energy metabolism when you have a cell and that cell is producing energy or that cell is being converted into energy there are byproducts simple waste byproducts that are oxidized and those become free radicals well those free radicals can cause all kinds of things they can cause abnormal cell growth they can cause abnormal cell proliferation basically meaning you can start growing rogue cells and rogue portions of cells and this can lead to all kinds of things at the end of the day there is a lot of length it says free radicals can lead to disease and lead to cancer but more so than that free radicals can lead to a slowed metabolism on day one slowing down your glucose uptake and slowing down your ability to burn fat and ultimately build muscle to have the best body that you could possibly want now I want to explain exactly how alpha lipoic that can help you burn fat and help you build muscle so I want to lead off with a study and the study talks about diabetic patients and I know you may or may not be diabetic but this study makes some pretty solid sense see what this study looked at was patients that were obese and diabetic they gave these obese diabetic patients 600 milligrams of alpha lipoic acid daily for a couple of weeks and then they took a control group that they gave a placebo to what was interesting after a couple of weeks those that consumes the alpha lipoic acid had a significant decrease in their body mass index and their overall fat mass meaning they lost body weight coming from fat but additionally they had a lower blood sugar level and an increased level of glucose uptake and I’m going to get to that in just a minute you see what’s important to know is it’s thought the reason these people lost fat mass was predominantly because of something called insulin signaling and insulin resistance you see when you consume something your body secretes insulin and when your body secretes insulin that insulin shuttles glucose into the cell so that the cell can utilize that glucose for energy well if you don’t have that insulin response or your body’s insulin resistance oh I get in the case of a type-2 diabetic that insulin can’t really trigger the glucose to go into the cell so that glucose flows through the bloodstream and ultimately can hit the liver and gets stored as fat this can lead to of course excess fat accumulation but it can also lead the disease and other side effects of high blood sugar now the interesting thing is alpha lipoic acid triggers this insulin signaling response but it doesn’t trigger it through traditional insulin response you see what it does is it actually mimics insulin so you can actually uptake glucose into the cell without having a traditional insulin response that you would get from eating sugar alpha lipoic acid can mimic insulin that’s the most important part of this video so if you have high blood sugar or you’re trying to increase the amount of glucose that gets taken into the cell to give you more energy in the gym to give you more energy and more brain power then alpha lipoic acid can assist you with that and how does that affect you again well it’s simple when that glucose goes into the cell it’s not floating through the bloodstream it’s going into the cell it’s giving you energy and it’s not tortoise fat but where do we get alpha lipoic acid if you look at all my videos I’m always talking about trying to get the most bioavailable form possible I’m always talking about trying to get it from food and the thing is since alpha lipoic acid is available in just about every cell in the human body you can imagine it’s pretty common in a lot of foods as well you can get it at broccoli you can get it in high amounts of red meat and you can get it in organ meat but the problem is because it’s such a sensitive molecule it gets broken down when you cook it it gets broken down through any kind of adulteration so it’s one of the very very few antioxidants that is actually more potent when it comes in supplement form then when you get it from food it’s more bioavailable in a capsule than it is from your food and that’s crazy for me to say I don’t usually talk like that now again I have to say I’m not a doctor and I don’t like to recommend any specific kind of dosage but I know that that question is going to come up and I can say based on the research that I’ve looked at and what people have told me and the scientific evidence that I’ve seen 600 milligrams per day seems to be the right kind of amount to get a mainstream effect of it to help glucose uptake to help insulin signaling and to ultimately help fat loss help glucose tolerance and to get you the most out of the supplement without going overboard now one thing that I’ve noticed when I take alpha lipoic acid definitely make your urine stink a little bit and that usually means that you’re not absorbing all of it so as funny as it is you may want to use that as your reference point to back off your dosage a little bit or increase your dosage as necessary as always keep it locked in here in my videos if you have any questions or suggestions on videos just go ahead and put them in the comment section below and I’m happy to look at them and get some ideas on more videos that can help you be your best self see you in the next

Burn Carbohydrates with Antioxidants: Alpha Lipoic Acid- Thomas DeLauer:
Did you know that the body is capable of producing its own antioxidants? One powerful antioxidant produced by the body is alpha lipoic acid.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is found in every cell of the human body. Both water soluble and fat soluble, so able to act throughout the body. Antioxidants attack free radicals, which are waste products that occur when the body creates energy through the food we eat. Free radicals can also come from exposure to toxins and pollutants. Negative effects of free radicals include: slows metabolism, abnormal cell growth and proliferation, impaired neuron signaling. Free radicals lead to cellular damage, including damage to organs. Make the body more susceptible to infections. Cancer, heart disease and diabetes are partially caused by this kind of cellular damage. How else can ALA help our health?
ALA for Fat Loss and Building Muscle: Multiple studies have found ALA reduces weight gain in rodents and in humans. One study followed obese diabetic patients for 20 weeks with either 600 mg supplementation of ALA per day or a placebo and found significant effect on body mass index and triglyceride levels, decreasing BMI and triglyceride levels, in the subjects with oral ALA supplementation. Protection against insulin resistance has been shown. Insulin resistance leads to decreased glucose uptake in fat and muscle cells.
ALA helps to turn glucose into energy, or fuel, for your body through insulin signaling: When insulin binds to the insulin receptor a cascade of events is started, leading to increased cellular glucose uptake. ALA has been shown to activate this cascade of events, leading to increased glucose uptake in fat and muscle cells. This is done not through an effect on insulin levels, but by triggering the same sequence of events, leading to glucose transport for energy creation. ALA sort of mimics insulin!
Studies have shown that this shuttling allows more glucose to enter skeletal muscle cells, thus more glucose burned as for energy → more energy to tear and rebuild muscles and less shuttled to be stored as fat. When more glucose is delivered to muscle cells, there is less available to be stored as fat in far calls. So you have more fuel to push muscle growth and less glucose stored in fat cells = muscle growth and less fat accumulation.
Other Possible Uses of ALA: ALA is approved in Germany as a treatment for diabetes and for symptoms of diabetes due to its effect on glucose.
Cancer
Memory Loss
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
HIV/AIDS
Heart Disease
Eye related disorders
How to add Alpha Lipoic Acid to Your Diet: Foods high in ALA: broccoli, spinach, potatoes, red meat, organ meats – liver. You can also take supplements. The bioavailability of supplemental ALA has been shown to be much greater than that of dietary ALA. You can take about 50 mg for antioxidant purposes; up to 800 mg per day for diabetic purposes, as directed by a doctor. 350 mg to 600 mg daily is a common dose. This is often recommended to be taken on an empty stomach.
