Effect of Alpha Lipoic Acid Supplementation on Cognitive and Vascular Function in Older Adults


Study Description: Anti-oxidants are believed to help reduce oxidative stress in the cells of the body.

The purpose of this study is to determine if taking alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), an over-the-counter oral dietary supplement, can improve mental sharpness and blood vessel health in people with high oxidative stress
