What is 5-ALA?

What is 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA)?

Source of health, beauty, and vitality

“The Source of Life”, natural amino acid 5-ALA

5-AminoLevulinic Acid (ALA) is one of the natural amino acids that has existed on the earth since its inception 3.6 billion years ago, and is deeply involved in the birth of life.

5-ALA, which exists in the mitochondria of cells and produces energy in all living organisms such as humans, animals, and plants, is called the “source of life.”

5-ALA Health Food

SBI Pharma is a pharmaceutical company in Japan specializing in researching, developing, and manufacturing pharmaceuticals and health foods containing 5-ALA (raw material notation: 5-Aminolevulinic Acid Phosphate). Based on the various research results of 5-ALA, SBI Pharma considers its combination with other ingredients and its blending balance, while promoting product development with awareness on ease of use, high quality, and safety.

SBI Pharma only commercializes developed products that meet the strict quality standards that they set independently in-house. In addition, some products are classified as functional foods based on the results of research and development and product development, as “functionality labeling based on scientific evidence” is performed.




Since 5-Aminolevulinic Acid (5-ALA) was discovered by the late Dr. David Shemin (Columbia University) in the United States in the 1950s [3], many scholars have been studying its basic biology throughout the 20th century. On the other hand, the method of chemically synthesizing 5-ALA used in basic research was very complicated, and its price was higher than that of platinum of the same weight.
