Heart disease and Diabetes possess the first and second leading cause of death in the world and people are suffering from chronic kidney disease are likely more tend to suffer from hypercholesterolemia. Alpha-lipoic acid is unsaturated fatty acids having strong anti-oxidative properties. The aim of this study was to characterize alpha-lipoic acid as a cholesterol reducer for acetaminophen induced uremic rats. The study was performed on thirty male albino rats. Plasma total cholesterol…

Effects of alpha lipoic acid on metabolic syndrome: A comprehensive review.
TLDR
The potential properties of α-LA in managing MetS are exhibited, however, high-quality studies are needed to confirm the clinical efficacy of α, as well as the different molecular mechanisms behind these effects.

TLDR
The present study indicates that the protective nature of Sargassum polycystum extract may be due to the presence of active compounds possessing antilipemic property against acetaminophen challenge.

TLDR
It is suggested that alpha-lipoic acid (LA) ameliorate the lipid peroxidation and the loss of cellular antioxidants, thereby protecting the CQ-induced oxidative damage in kidney.
