Benefits

  • R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid includes only the naturally occurring R-isomer, the only form utilized by mitochondrial enzymes, and the only one synthesized in humans
  • R-isomer has greater biological activity than the racemic mixture often used in supplements, which is a combination of the R- and S- isomers
  • R-isomer supplementation results in higher total plasma levels, as well as a shorter time to reach maximum levels in older individuals compared to the racemic mixture
  • ALA is involved in the body’s antioxidant processes
  • Supports glutathione synthesis and helps maintain healthy mitochondrial function
  • Suitable for vegetarians/vegans

Feature Summary
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) has antioxidant activity, helps clear cellular debris normally produced by the body, may support healthy neurological function, and helps maintain healthy mitochondrial function. The R-isomer of ALA is a cofactor for mitochondrial enzymes and a substrate for glutathione reductase; it participates in the citric acid cycle and ATP production and recycles other antioxidants, including vitamins C, E, CoQ10, and glutathione. R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid includes only the R-isomer, which increased plasma levels nearly 1-5 times higher in older populations than the commonly used racemic mixture (combined R- and S- isomers). ALA may also support wound healing when combined with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, particularly the R isomer. ALA may support blood glucose levels already within the normal range, help maintain insulin sensitivity already within the normal range, and help maintain normal peripheral neurological function.
