Thioctic acid (alpha-lipoic acid) - an endogenous antioxidant (binds free radicals), is formed in the body during the oxidative decarboxylation of alpha keto acids. As a coenzyme, mitochondrial multienzyme complexes are involved in the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvic acid and alpha-keto acids.
By the nature of the biochemical action is similar to the B vitamins. It has a hepatoprotective, hypolipidemic, hypocholesterolemic, hypoglycemic effect. Helps reduce blood glucose and increase glycogen content in the liver, as well as reduce insulin resistance.
Participates in the regulation of lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, stimulates the exchange of cholesterol, improves liver function. Improves trophism of neurons. The use of the megoulamine salt of thioctic acid (which has a neutral reaction) makes it possible to reduce the severity of side reactions.
The time to reach maximum concentration is 10-11 minutes. The area under the concentration-time curve is about 5 μg × h / ml.
Bioavailability - 30%. It has the effect of "first pass" through the liver. Metabolized in the liver by side chain oxidation and conjugation. The volume of distribution is about 450 ml / kg. Total plasma clearance - 10-15 ml / min. Thioctic acid and its metabolites are excreted by the kidneys (80-90%). The half-life is 20-50 minutes.
