Best Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid contains BioEnhanced Na-RALA, the sodium salt of R-Lipoic acid (RLA). Unlike pure RLA, BioEnhanced Na-RALA is a stabilized form of RLA that won't degrade at high temperatures, is more bioavailable than regular RLA and has no solvent residues.
Lipoic acid (LA) plays an important role in glucose metabolism and energy production. Because it is soluble in both water and fat, LA is known as the "universal antioxidant." LA occurs in two forms, designated as "R" and "S". Studies suggest that RLA, the natural form, is more biologically active than the S form.
Adult Use: Take one to two capsules daily, or as directed by a nutritionally informed physician.
Modified cellulose (vegetarian capsule), rice powder, microcrystalline cellulose, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium stearate (vegetable source), silicon dioxide.
Contains nothing other than listed ingredients
Note: The RLA in this product is stabilized with Na (sodium). However, one serving of this product contains less than 1% of the Daily Value for sodium, an insignificant contribution to dietary sources. Research suggests that sodium may impact blood pressure in some individuals only when it is consumed as sodium chloride (NaCl, table salt) and not in other forms. The sodium in this product is unlikely to affect blood pressure levels.

R-Lipoic Acid is exceptionally suitable for supporting the retina of the eye because it can enter the mitochondria, recycle other antioxidants, and is regenerated by high blood sugar. R-Lipoic Acid can help protect the nervous system from the damaging effects of unhealthy blood sugar metabolism, it appears to support healthy glucose uptake and utilization directly.
Since I have been taking this particular form of Lipoi Acid, I am always in a good mood and have no brain fog. It was so bad that sometimes I could not even find my words.... I am 35 yrs old!

Read research that hold promise that R-Lipoic Acid improves mitochondrial function of the cells. Recommended it along with ubiquinol to a family member that has cancer that to improve mitochondrial activity. Also came across research that indicates promise for cardiovascular risk.
