Alpha lipoic acid inhibits oxidative stress-induced apoptosis by modulating of Nrf2 signalling pathway after traumatic brain injury.

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant which has been widely used in the treatment of different system diseases, such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. But, there are few studies that refer to protective effects and potential mechanisms on traumatic brain injury (TBI). This study was carried out to investigate the neuroprotective effect following […]

Effects of lipoic acid on walking performance, gait, and balance in secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.

BACKGROUND: Gait and balance impairment is common in secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS). Lipoic acid (LA), an over-the-counter antioxidant, is effective in MS animal models and may improve walking speed, but effects on mobility are unreported. OBJECTIVE: Examine the effects of 1200 mg daily oral dose of LA versus placebo (PLA) on gait and balance in […]

Effect of Curcumin and α-Lipoic Acid in Attenuating Weight Gain and Adiposity.

OBJECTIVE: Obesity is growing at epidemic proportions worldwide. Natural compounds curcumin and α-lipoic acid have been shown to reduce body-weight gain in both preclinical and clinical studies. This study examined the effect of a combination of curcumin and α-lipoic acid on weight gain and adiposity in high-fat-diet (HFD)-fed mice. METHODS: C57BL6 mice (7 weeks old) […]

Elevated blood pressure reduction after α-lipoic acid supplementation: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

The aim of the comprehensive meta-analysis was to systematically explore the reductive effect of α-lipoic acid (ALA) supplementation on systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP). The related records were selected from PubMed, Scopus, EMBASE, Cochrane library, and Persian databases including SID and Magiran from earliest date 1980 until August 2018. The heterogeneities […]
