Nerve Communication and Heart Health

Nerves must maintain healthy connections to tissues they are regulating, including the heart. When signs of nerve wear and tear (shaking, numbness, tingling, etc.) start to occur in the hands or feet, it means that the long nerves going to these areas are struggling to maintain healthy function. The basic nutrients needed for nerve transmission are B vitamins, magnesium, and calcium. Nutrients like ALC and Q10 boost the body’s functions. Proper thyroid function is also important for healthy nerve transmission down long nerves. Additionally, nerves must be protected, and that is where R Alpha Lipoic Acid, RALA, comes in as it is a potent nerve antioxidant. Numerous studies show that RALA supports the integrity of healthy nerve transmission.*

Normal heart function is under complex regulation from both sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves. These nerves must be able to communicate their signals properly to the heart. R Alpha Lipoic Acid helps offset general age related nervous system wear
and tear, helping preserve the natural function of nerves. It does this by participating in antioxidant processes, along with other antioxidants like vitamin E and Q10. Numerous studies show that RALA also supports general cardiovascular antioxidant functions, supporting not only your heart's antioxidant function but also helping all the cells that line your arteries.*

Your heart must make energy, and a lot of it. Even in a perfectly healthy person normal energy function is inherently inefficient, as some oxygen related by-products must be trapped by antioxidants, otherwise energy production rusts whatever is next to it. As you age the natural function of antioxidant systems starts to decline. This means that free radical driven rusting processes increase. The reason for taking antioxidants in general is to offset this issue everywhere in your body, and the heart is no exception. R Alpha Lipoic Acid has been shown in animal studies to directly support the normal antioxidant function of the heart, even in old animals. Numerous studies are coming in on this topic, many of which are using a combination of Acetyl-L-Carnitine and RALA to stabilize the heart in the face of various forms of stress.*

    ALC helps the heart burn fat for fuel, a process known as beta oxidation.* It also helps restore the function of the enzyme cytochrome c oxidase, which in turn promotes normal oxygen uptake and use by cells to make energy. This naturally supports the heart's high energy requirements.*
