Stabilized sodium salt of R-lipoic acid
Provides enhanced antioxidant support
Supports cardiovascular health
Promotes cognitive health
Lipoic acid is a compound produced by all animals, including humans. Your body produces vast stores of lipoic acid to support and promote cellular respiration. The most common form of lipoic acid is alpha-lipoic-acid, or ALA.
R-alpha-lipoic acid is a very stable form of alpha-lipoic-acid that your body can use to supplement its stores of ALA. R-lipoic acid may provide antioxidant support to vital organs as well as neurons. Alpha-lipoic acid contains a natural R isomer that contributes to this benefit. Its antioxidant properties actually stem from its potential to spur your body’s own production and utilization of vitamin C and E.
Your body uses ALA to support optimal nerve health. It helps to encourage cognitive function and it promotes optimal memory. ALA also plays a vital role in glucose metabolism, and it supports the production of energy in the cells by promoting cellular respiration. ALA is a powerful antioxidant and it therefore plays a role in protecting your body from free radical damage.
R-alpha-lipoic acid provides a highly stable and bioavailable form of R-lipoic acid, with the potential for enhanced antioxidant protection and metabolic support.
