Nutri-Med Logic Corp States that in the Cases of Diabetes, R-Alpha Lipoic Would Benefit in Redox Imbalance, Expanding on the Redox Article of ‘Reviews in Cardiovasc Med’
Nutri-Med Logic Corp investigation in the role of nutrients to improve metabolism of carbohydrates (glucose), expanding on the the Redox article of “Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine”, shows a strong relationship between R-Alpha Lipoic and Redox Imbalance, seen in Obesity and Diabetes.

Nutri-Med Logic Corp.: Benefits of proper diet with R-Alpha Lipoic in Obesity and Diabetes.
Redox Imbalance is not exclusive to over-production of free radicals, as stated in the recent redox imbalance Article of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine, redox imbalance is also referred to improper ratios of NAD/NADH.
NAD is essential for proper metabolism of glucose. NAD after helping in metabolism of carbohydrates becomes NADH, which is the precursor (raw material) to energy.
Cells maintain a high number of NAD. In non-diabetics, there are about 500 NAD to 1 NADH. However, in diabetics that number drops to as low as 200 to 1.
Improper NAD/NADH ratios or a redox imbalance manifests a lack of homeostasis in the body.
This type of redox imbalance causes the conversion of glucose (sugar) to fat (palmitate) instead of conversion of glucose to ATP (energy).
As fat deposits in the muscle tissues and the concentration of palmitate (fat) increases, they produce insulin resistance (through activating a protein called TNF).
When cells do not accept insulin, naturally the glucose levels elevate. A constant elevated levels of glucose activate certain proteins (Sorbitol-Aldose Reductase), which permits the entry of the excess glucose to certain cells for its conversion, now to fructose. These certain cells exist in the blood vessels, kidney, nerves and eyes.
The problem starts when this process (Sorbitol-Aldose) become more than normal. The Sorbitol-Aldose produces substances that change the osmotic pressures of the these certain cells in a kidney, blood vessels and eyes, as well as not permitting entry of nutrients into these cells.
The end result is damage to the eyes, kidney, blood vessels and nerves, as seen in the diabetics.
R-Alpha Lipoic is a nutrient. R-Alpha Lipoic is made by the human body but its levels drop by age. R-Alpha Lipoic is found in variety of foods but its levels do not increase through conventional food and studies have shown, to increase its levels, its dietary supplementation is the solution.
R-Alpha Lipoic is approved in Germany, intravenously, for the treatment of Diabetic. It was even the attention focus of the FDA, as the agency granted a special license to Dr. Berkson, an Associate in National Institutes of Health for intravenous application of this nutrient.
R-Alpha Lipoic is capable of entering the cells via the vitamin transport channel and, once inside, it has been suggested that each molecule of R-Alpha Lipoic is capable of accepting one hydrogen for NADH (the H stands for hydrogen). When NADH loses its H (hydrogen) it becomes NAD and as the levels of NAD goes up, so does the metabolism of glucose (sugar).
That is why R-Alpha Lipoic has been recommended for Diabetics in Germany, for more than 40 years, and is gaining fame as a the Dietary Supplement of choice for Diabetics in US, as well.
Without a doubt, a diet rich in R-Alpha Lipoic is most beneficial in the cases of Obesity and Diabetes. However, nutrients cannot and should not be a substitute for medications. At the same time, it is not a secret that proper nutrients improve the overall health and thus confer valuable benefits.
It is also very important to note that one should not relate the cause of Obesity or Diabetes to the decline of R-Alpha Lipoic by aging. Additionally, taking R-Alpha Lipoic does equate with prevention or a cure.
In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp. agrees with the recent redox imbalance Article of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine. However, the redox imbalance should not be taken verbatim as the over-production of free radicals, rather the improper ratios of NAD/NADH.
Nutri-Med Logic Corp is a producer of dietary supplements that would be Essential in countering stress, inflammation, redox imbalance and hypomethylation “The Four Factors”; all of which affect the homeostasis of the body.
Nutri-Med Logic’s products are Formulated Based on Nutritional Logic, made from the highest quality raw materials that are manufactured in pharmaceutical facilities, encapsulated in pharmaceutical facilities and, also, packaged in pharmaceutical facilities.
