Doctor's Best, Best Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid, 200 mg, 60 Veggie Caps11 Reviews
Expiration Date: Feb 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

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 1 capsule daily with or without food, or as directed by a nutritional 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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I always feel an energy boost whenever I take this and it has so many benefits that I can't be without it.
R-lipoic acid acts in many different roles in your body: it chelates heavy metals, protects your brain and nervous system, lowers blood sugar (and can thereby help lose weight), acts as a very powerful and long-lasting antioxidant, recycles other antioxidants back to active form and so on... Great detoxifier and universal antioxidant! Has made me feel much more energetic!
