A state-of-the-science compilation, Lipoic Acid follows the history of this potent molecule and the latest discoveries regarding the chemistry, biological action, and significance in energy production, antioxidant activity and health.
The book is divided into three sections:
- Section I reviews the discovery, molecular structure, biosynthesis, and characterization of lipoic acid.
- Section II describes metabolic aspects and human pharmacodynamics and explains its role in energy production and antioxidant activity.
- Section III discusses clinical aspects and the treatment of metabolic syndromes and loss of mitochondrial function with lipoic acid supplementation.
Contributions from leading international researchers make Lipoic Acid the most comprehensive, up-to-date account of the impact of this potentially key molecule in diminishing the damaging effects of aging and disease.
