R-Alpha Lipoic Acid
250 mg/capsule (Veggie Cap)
|R-Alpha Lipoic Acid|
Suggested dose for adults: 1 capsule 2-3x daily on an empty stomach
or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Primary action: R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is a coenzyme used in energy
production in cellular metabolism and functions as an ideal
R-Form Benefit: Conventional chemical synthesis of lipoic acid
yields a mixture of R- and S-enantiomers. Lipoic acid from Alpha
Science is processed in such a way as to yield the active R- isomer
only with purity guaranteed to be higher than 99%.
Bioavailability of R- and S- alpha-lipoic acid has extensively been
studied. After oral intake of R- and S-alpha-lipoic acid, at least
a 60% higher response was found for the R-form than for the mixed
(racemic) form, which would include the S-form.
As an antioxidant, R-alpha-lipoic acid and its reduced form
dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), activated metabolically from lipoic
acid, are strong reductants that can regenerate oxidized ascorbate,
glutathione, coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E. Hence, the idea of an
antioxidant network”. In addition, lipoic acid has both
water-soluble and membrane-soluble characteristics, enabling it to
reduce oxidized antioxidants at the lipid/water interface.
R-alpha-lipoic acid also acts as a metal chelating agent which
explains the usefulness of lipoic acid for the detoxification in
heavy metal poisoning.
