Growing older, sleeping less

As you grow older are you getting more sleepless? Scientists studied how lipoic acid can reset the body’s biological clock-circadian rhythm. Lipoic acid actually helped restore a more normal circadian rhythm in older animals even while it helped with stress resistance, cardiac function, hormonal balance, muscle performance, glucose metabolism and the whole aging process in general. Some one-third of our genes are directly influenced by circadian rhythms and when the circadian rhythm goes whack, the body is more susceptible to cancer, heart disease, liver dysfunction, inflammation, hormonal imbalance and many other diseases. The body normally produces the active “R” form of lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid is a combo of the natural and the synthetic forms of lipoic acid. Studies show that R-lipoic acid benefits kick in at about 600mg a day – much more than you can usually get in a healthy diet.
