The drug is an endogenous antioxidant that binds free radicals. Thioktovic (? -lipoic) acid is involved in the mitochondrial metabolism of cells, it performs the function of coenzyme in the complex of transformation of substances that have a pronounced antitoxic effect. They protect the cell from reactive radicals arising from intermediate metabolism or from the decay of exogenous foreign substances and from heavy metals. Thioctic acid shows a synergism with respect to insulin, which is associated with an increase in the utilization of glucose. In patients with diabetes, thioctic acid leads to a change in the concentration of pyruvic acid in the blood.
