Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a natural compound that our bodies produce and can be found in certain foods, such as spinach, broccoli, and red meat. As both a water-soluble and fat-soluble antioxidant, ALA offers a unique advantage in fighting free radicals!
At SeeBeyond Medicine, we pride ourselves on providing the latest and most effective treatments to our patients. One of our groundbreaking offerings is the Alpha Lipoic Acid IV therapy. This potent antioxidant IV infusion can help improve blood sugar control, promote healthy nerve function, aid in weight loss, and support heart health.

The Functions of Alpha Lipoic Acid
ALA is a potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and prevents oxidative stress. This helps protect the body from a range of diseases and health issues related to aging, inflammation, and cellular damage.
ALA aids in energy production by assisting in the conversion of glucose into energy within the mitochondria. This process not only provides the body with essential fuel but also supports overall cellular health.
Heavy Metal Detoxification
ALA has the unique ability to bind with heavy metals, such as mercury and lead, allowing the body to eliminate them more effectively. This detoxification process helps maintain a healthier internal environment and reduces the risk of heavy metal toxicity.
Benefits of ALA IV therapy over oral supplementation
Greater bioavailability. Antioxidants are highly absorbable when delivered via IV, in comparison to the 15% of active ingredient absorption the body receives when ALA supplements are taken orally.
Faster absorption and direct delivery of nutrients. When ALA gets into the bloodstream, it goes straight to the depleted cells and gets to work. It is beneficial especially when the ALA is direly needed and a high dose of oral supplementation is discouraged.

Alpha Lipoic Acid IV Treatment
Intravenous (IV) administration of Alpha Lipoic Acid has become increasingly popular due to its ability to deliver high concentrations of ALA directly into the bloodstream. This approach bypasses the digestive system, ensuring maximum absorption and rapid results.
The Process of IV Administration
IV ALA treatment is administered by one of our healthcare practitioners. We use a sterile solution containing a high concentration of ALA through a small needle, inserted into a vein in your arm. The procedure usually lasts between 30 minutes to an hour.
Benefits of IV Alpha Lipoic Acid
The advantages of IV ALA treatment extend far beyond its antioxidant properties, offering numerous health benefits for a variety of conditions.
Nerve Function Improvement
ALA helps improve nerve function and reduce symptoms of neuropathy, a condition characterized by nerve damage and pain. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with diabetes, who often experience diabetic neuropathy as a result of uncontrolled blood sugar levels.
By helping the body utilize glucose more effectively, ALA can support healthy blood glucose concentrations and insulin resistance, which is essential for individuals with diabetes or those at risk of developing the condition.
Liver Health Support
ALA’s detoxifying properties make it an excellent choice for supporting liver health. Research suggests that IV ALA treatment may help protect the liver from damage caused by toxins and oxidative stress, promoting overall liver function and health.
Chronic Pain Relief
IV ALA assists in alleviating chronic pain in some patients, particularly those suffering from neuropathy or fibromyalgia. By reducing inflammation and oxidative stress, ALA may help lessen pain and improve the overall quality of life.
Weight Loss and Heart Health
When used regularly, Alpha-Lipoic Acid reduces insulin resistance and increases cellular utilization of glucose by more than 50%, especially in type-2 diabetes. ALA also helps widen blood vessels, reducing the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease by maintaining normal heart rhythm and pumping.
Potential Side Effects
While ALA IV therapy is generally considered safe, some individuals may experience side effects. These can range from mild to severe, depending on the person and the dosage administered.
Mild Side Effects
- Skin rash or irritation at the injection site
Most of these side effects are temporary and subside on their own. However, if they persist or worsen, it’s essential to contact us immediately.
Severe Side Effects
In rare cases, some individuals may experience severe side effects from ALA IV therapy. These can include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Rapid heart rate
- Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
If any of these severe side effects occur, it’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention.
Contraindications and Precautions
Before undergoing ALA IV therapy, it’s important to discuss any pre-existing medical conditions or medications with us as certain individuals may be advised to take this treatment due to potential risks or contraindications. If you have the following condition, consult with us today so we can recommend a different therapy.
- Those with a history of allergic reactions to ALA or its components
- Those with thiamine deficiency or certain thyroid disorders
