Aging is progressively deteriorating physiological function that leads to increasing risks of illness and death. Increases in life expectancy and the aging of a large segment of the population have made age-related disability and morbidity increasingly important issues. Supplements such as α-lipoic acid may have antiaging effects by positively affecting oxidative stress, cognitive function, and cardiovascular function.
