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

Hmmm - not sure

So, it's expensive - but I saved $0.01 (or 0%) off RRP through iherb. Just think what I can do with a 1 cent saving!

Thanks for your feedback!
