R-Lipoic Acid 60 caps

R-Lipoic Acid capsules contain 100 mg of pure R-lipoic acid. The R-lipoic acid isomer used in this formulation is provided in a stabilized form as potassium-R-lipoate and does not contain any S-lipoic acid.

With its potent antioxidant properties, research has shown lipoic acid strongly supports the neurovascular system, as well as overall circulatory and blood vessel health. As a short chain fatty acid, it can both be absorbed by fatty tissues and maintain its solubility in water, allowing it to be easily excreted from the body when not needed. In addition, orally supplemented lipoic acid readily crosses the blood brain barrier after absorption in the small intestine; thereafter, it undergoes distribution via systemic circulation. Once inside the tissues, it can exert antioxidant benefits inside and outside the cells. Lipoic acid serves as a sulfur donor, which allows it to support detoxification pathways. Studies have shown that it also modulates the expression of genes, allowing it to support blood sugar balance and cardiometabolic health.

Difference between R-Lipoic Acid and Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha-lipoic acid exists in three different forms: alpha R-lipoic acid, alpha S-lipoic acid, and alpha RS-lipoic acid. Alpha S-lipoic acid and alpha RS-lipoic acid are synthetics created by chemical synthesis, and commonly known and sold as alpha-lipoic acid supplements. Alpha lipoic acid is referred to as racemic molecule, which contains both the natural and the unnatural form (cis and trans respectively).

On the other hand, alpha R-lipoic acid is the natural form of lipoic acid and the only version that exists in nature, is produced in the body, and synthesized by both plants and animals. R-lipoic acid contains only the natural form (cis) form of ALA.
