Description

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.*

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
