This is a Dr. grade nutritional product that should only be purchased from a practitioner like myself. It's important to purchase R Lipoic Acid over regular Lipoic Acid as it's more potent due to lack of fillers. R Lipoic Acid offers powerful protection against stroke, heart disease, and cataracts. It has been known to strengthen memory and prevent aging. R Lipoic Acid has been safely and effectively used in Europe for decades to prevent and relieve complications associated with diabetes. This antioxidant is so powerful it has been known to turn of bad genes and used to treat liver diseases such as hepatitis C.
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. In a recent in vitro study at the Buck Institute for Aging in California, R-lipoic acid moderated oxidative stress in neurons. Additional studies suggest that R-lipoic acid offers support for glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle. 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.
