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. This formula includes the vitamin biotin to further support lipolic acid's metabolic benefits.
Adult Use: Take 1 capsule once or twice daily, preferably between meals or as recommended by a nutritionally-informed physician.
Modified cellulose (vegetarian capsule), rice powder, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate (vegetable source), silicon dioxide.
Store in a cool dry place.

Good for Diabetic Neuropathy
Good for Diabetic Neuropathy
I was diagnosed with Type 2, Diabetes 5 years ago. I am 70 years old. The worst case scenario for for diabetic is nerve damage in feet and legs causing burning, tingling and numbness and even amputations. Eye damage which can lead to blindness and kidney failure. Within the first year I began to have issues with my left leg and foot as mentioned above. I read about Lipoic Acid and that the R-Lipooic acid was the best kind. I started taking 500 Mg. per day, which is considered safe, even at 1200 Mg. I used Dr.Best and Life Extensions 300 Mg to make up the 500 Mg. dose. I no longer have any leg or foot issues. My Opthamologist said there was no evidence of any damage to my eyes. R-Lipoic acid is not a license to eat WRONG, but it has played a big role in preventing and reversing nerve damage for me I believe. Other diabetic I know are having their toes removed, walking with canes due to nerve damage, etc., and losing their eye sight. Learn to eat right and exercise and take R-Lipoic Acid and a high grade fish oil. Educate yourself on Diabetes, as you will get little help from your doctors as a general rule. Most Diabetic cook books are a mere hint of what they should be. Bitter Melon Capsules have also helped lower my blood sugar, which I buy from I-Herb. No one thing is a cure all for this disease. You must change your life style and eating habits.
Good for skin!

I have had a nasty peri-oral dermatitis and it is said that nothing can heal it. Well, this Lipoic Acid has improved my skin incredibly! It hasn't completely disappeared but now I only get a few little bumps and not the huge, painful patches anymore! A huge thanks to this product! I will continue taking it and see what happens.....
