Alpha Lipoic Acid + EPA May Promote Body Weight Loss in Healthy Overweight Women

ala-epa and weight lossA new study has found supplementing with alpha lipoic acid, both with or without EPA Omega 3 may support weight loss in women who are overweight and obese.  The EPA Omega 3 was found to prevent the reduction of leptin during weight loss.  Leptin is the satiety hormone that signals the body that it is full.

97 women who were obese or overweight participated in this study.  The study was a double blind placebo controlled study.  All the participants followed a reduced calorie diet and were divided into 4 groups: Control (no supplementation), EPA only (supplemented with 1.3 grams daily), alpha lipoic acid only (300 mg daily) and lastly alpha lipoic acid + EPA .  The study lasted 10 weeks and 77 women completed the study.

The control group lost an average of 5.2 kg on the diet only.  The same weight loss of 5.2 kg was seen in the EPA group.  The alpha lipoic acid group only, lost an average of 7 kg and the alpha lipoic acid group + EPA lost on average 6.5 kg.

I have been involved in the Wellness Industry for over 25 years. I am a Certified Dietary Supplement Specialist and regularly lectures at various higher learning institutions on basic vitamin/mineral/herbal supplement facts. I became involved in the industry after being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome. Not satisfied with conventional treatment methods, I began to learn about natural remedies and slowly began to see changes in my condition. Driven by my own results with natural products I developed a passion to pass on those same benefits to others who also suffered any number of ailments and wanted a natural treatment alternative that offered results.
