Product Overview

Description
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

R-Lipoic Acid the most active form of alpha-lipoic acid

  • supports neurological function
  • antioxidant in both water- and fat-soluble tissues
  • essential for liver, eye, and nerve health
  • the form of supplemental lipoic acid found in highest concentration in the bloodstream

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) contains two forms – designated as R-lipoic acid (R-ALA) and S-lipoic acid (S-ALA) – that are mirror images of each other. Naturally occurring ALA is in the R form, where it functions as an essential cofactor for many enzymes involved in energy production. In addition, R-lipoic acid has important characteristics – significant antioxidant effects in particular – that contribute to liver, nerve, and eye health.

Dietary supplements of ALA are generally comprised either of R-ALA by itself or a mixture of R-ALA and S-ALA. Studies indicate the R-ALA form appears to be better absorbed, with twice as much R-ALA than S-ALA appearing in the bloodstream after an oral dose. Hence, R-ALA is the best form utilized by the body.

Thorne Research provides R-lipoic acid bound to sodium – the most bioavailable form of R-lipoic acid

fabulous

Posted by Reviewer1244659 on Dec 11, 2011

Another top quality product from Thorne. The best and most bioavailable form of lipoic acid is r lipoic acid. No fillers, binders etc. I do notice quite a stronge detox reaction when taking it along with Livon glutathione and vitamin c.

Better than Alpha Lipoic Acid

Posted by Reviewer2285897 on Apr 21, 2010

This is absorbed much better than ALA, and this brand has less toxic excipients than other brands.

Another good one

Posted by Reviewer2054172 on May 29, 2011

Taken nightly, R-Lipoic is the more bio-available version of alpha lipoic acid. Aids in detoxification.
