ADL simply gives higher dynamics by a sort of "compressing" the highest light contrast in the picture, thus retaining details in highlights that could have been blown out else. and without reducing the quality/increasing noise in the pic! In fact, with EV set right for the darker parts, that means a lighter exposure than without ADL activated, you will get better overall quality in the highlights, since they are given lower ISO before the RAW picture is made.
