R-Lipoic Acid (stabilized) 60 caps
- Supports neutralization of free radicals and enhancing cellular activity‡
- Made with hypoallergenic, vegan ingredients
R-Lipoic Acid (stabilized) provides a highly bioavailable form of R-Lipoic acid, with the potential to provide enhanced antioxidant activity, cellular energy production and general metabolic function.‡
What Is It?
Sodium R-alpha-lipoic acid is a highly bioavailable and stabilized form of R-lipoic acid. Regular R-lipoic acid is heat sensitive and may polymerize extensively, decreasing its absorption significantly. In real-time stability tests, sodium R-lipoic remained stable for 12 months. The natural R isomer of alpha-lipoic acid may provide enhanced antioxidant activity, energy production, and general metabolic function.*
Uses For R-lipoic acid (stabilized)
Nerve Health: In a recent in vitro study at the Buck Institute for Aging in California, R–lipoic acid moderated oxidative stress in neurons. A related study demonstrates the ability of R–lipoic acid to support memory tasks in animals by supporting mitochondrial function and protecting cells from free radicals.*
Glucose Metabolism: An animal study suggested that R–lipoic acid supported healthy glucose metabolism. Additional studies suggest that R-lipoic acid promotes glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle.*
Antioxidant Support: A University of California Berkeley study indicates that R–lipoic acid may be protective against age–related oxidative stress in the liver. Furthermore, a study at Oregon State University established a potential role for R–lipoic acid in protecting the heart from age–related oxidative stress.*
