Product Overview

Description

  • Bio Enhanced Active Form of Lipoic Acid
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Non-GMO
  • Suitable for Vegetarians

Published studies have shown the critical importance of lipoic acid in preserving youthful cellular energy by supporting healthy mitochondrial function. Unlike other forms of lipoic acid, Super R-Lipoic Acid is more bioavailable, stable, and potent, achieving 10–30 times higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid. This unique sodium-R-lipoate can help you reach peak plasma concentrations within just 10–20 minutes of supplementation. Super R-Lipoic Acid provides more of the active "R" form of lipoic acid than any other supplement. Try this next-generation lipoic acid today!

Benefits at a Glance

  • Potent antioxidant that achieves healthy plasma levels already within normal range
  • Helps protect against oxidative stress
  • Supports healthy mitochondrial function
  • Preserves youthful cellular energy

Potent Antioxidant that Achieves Peak Plasma Levels

Super R-Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant that supports healthy mitochondria, preserves youthful cellular energy, and helps protect against oxidative stress.. Unlike other forms of lipoic acid, Super R-Lipoic Acid is more bioavailable, stable, and potent, achieving 10–30 times higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid.

This unique sodium-R-lipoate can help you reach peak plasma concentrations within just 10–20 minutes of supplementation. Super R-Lipoic Acid provides more of the active "R" form of lipoic acid than any other supplement.

“R” Lipoic Acid is Biologically Active

Alpha-lipoic acid, the universal antioxidant, consists of two different forms (isomers) — R and S — that have vastly different properties. The “R” form is the biologically active component (native to the body) that is responsible for lipoic acid’s phenomenal antioxidant effect. The “S” form is produced from chemical manufacture and is not very biologically active. Alpha-lipoic acid supplements typically consist of the "R" and "S" form in a 50/50 ratio. That means a 100 mg alpha-lipoic acid supplement is providing 50 mg of the biologically active "R" form.

The human body normally produces and uses the "R" form of lipoic acid. This active form, R-lipoic acid, significantly supports healthy inflammatory response, is a potent free radical scavenger, and has been shown to be more potent than the combined "R" and "S" forms that ordinarily comprise alpha-lipoic acid supplements.

Unique Sodium-R-Lipoate is the “Next-Generation” Antioxidant

Through dedicated research and development, a newer form of R-lipoic acid has been discovered and is being seen as the "next-generation" antioxidant powerhouse. R-lipoic acid already has demonstrated superior bioavailability, stability, and potency for a variety of health benefits.

But a breakthrough process converts the biologically active "R" form of lipoic acid to sodium-R-lipoate, which, in a recent human study achieved higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid.

Not only does this newer lipoic acid formulation reach higher peak blood levels,13 it also achieves them sooner, ensuring rapid uptake from the plasma into the tissues. A study showed that oral ingestion of Super R-Lipoic Acid, after converting to sodium-R-lipoate, reached peak plasma concentrations within just 10–20 minutes of supplementation.

Enhanced Antioxidant Activity through Stability and High Potency

Unlike other forms of lipoic acid, Super R-Lipoic Acid is more stable in the body. The increased stability of this enhanced formulation is the reason for its greater absorption and bioavailability compared with R-lipoic acid.

The superior antioxidant effects of R-lipoic acid are already well-known for supporting healthy mitochondrial function. Now, Super R-Lipoic Acid provides even more potent benefits for preserving youthful cellular energy levels.
