Source Naturals R-Lipoic Acid is a natural form of lipoic acid that your body can synthesize and safely metabolize. It may be better absorbed and more effective as an antioxidant than alpha-lipoic acid. R-lipoic acid by itself may be 10 times more effective than other forms of lipoic acid and has been called the "mitochondrial antioxidant" because it is a key component of mitochondrial dehydrogenase complexes, which may help to slow the natural aging process in animals. Also, animal research has shown that R-lipoic acid can increase or maintain levels of other antioxidants including CoQ10, vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione, which may decline with age, more efficiently than other forms of lipoic acid.

Needed the 300mg Country life
Posted by Reviewer2291009 on Dec 11, 2013
This was my first time in using this product I will be going back to Country life 300mg. perhaps it is the dosage in this product only being 100mg. probably ok for those who need less.
R Lipoic is a superior form of ALA
Posted by OrganicReviews99 on Apr 08, 2012
That's what I've been able to find online. RLA is better than ALA. Either is probably good! I did ALA for a while and now doing RLA. I mix it up. Taking it for antioxidant and liver health.
This is really working!

After a lot of research, I decided to trial this for insulin resistance and it really helps to stabilise my blood glucose levels. Be cautious not to increase the dosage too much (as much of the scientific literature states that 600mg is a good therapeutic dose) as I increased to just 400mg and became quite ill for the rest of the day due to low BSL. I am using this in conjunction with a lot of exercise and a wholesome diet to reduce my insulin resistance and hopefully keep diabetes at bay. I feel it really working
