Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful anti-oxidant. It's main function is to increase production of glutathione, which helps dissolve toxic substances in the liver. It helps neutralize free radicals and protects cells from damage.

Many physicians who follow the Defeat Autism Now (DAN) organization's autism lipoictreatment protocols use alpha lipoic acid in the treatment of mercury toxicity. Chelation. According to parent surveys compiled by Defeat Autism Now of autism therapies, parents report that chelation single the most effective therapy in the treatment of autism for children under the age of 5.

According to DAN doctor, Amy Holmes, "Lipoic acid fits the molecular criteria of a good chelator. It has two diametrically opposed sulfhydryl groups capable of tightly binding mercury in a "pincer grasp". It also has the advantage of being lipid-soluble which implies an innate ability to cross cell and mitochondrial membranes and the blood brain barrier."

Alpha Lipoic Acid is frequently used with other chelators and supplements such as Milk Thistle to ensure the chelated mercury is excreted from the body.

Also, chelators can remove beneficial minerals as well as heavy metals, so it is important to alternate chelation days with days building up beneficial minerals such as zinc, potassium, selenium, magnesium, and non-dairy calcium - frequently during chelation mineral levels are regularly tested for by the physician.
