In "....ayuda a reducir los efectos...". is the "a" required because ayudar always takes "a" before an infinitive? If followed by a human or animal the "personal a" is also required, e.g. Ayudo a mi padre, but not if the object is inanimate. Is this correct?

Nice to see you in the forum.
Ayudar is always followed by "a" with infinitives. Have a look at what the R.A.E says about this verb and the use of "a".
