LifeExtension Super R-Lipoic Acid provides the superior, more bioavailable, potent, active and stable form of Lipoic acid, sodium-R-lipoic acid. R-lipoic acid comes from alpha-lipoic acid and is the lipoic acid that is normally produced and used in the human body. In a breakthrough process, this biologically active form of R-lipoic acid is converted into sodium-R-lipoic acid which is seen as the “next-generation” antioxidant powerhouse with a variety of health benefits. Sodium-R-lipoic acid produces 10-30 times higher peak blood plasma levels within 10-20  minutes of taking it than pure R-lipoic acid. This means better and faster absorption from the blood into the tissues. 

Research has shown that the antioxidant effects of R-lipoic acid supports healthy mitochondrial function. 

Mitochondria are the energy powerhouses of body cells and mainly perform cellular respiration, meaning they take nutrients from the cell, break them down and turn it to energy. This is a crucial process to keep cells healthy and to keep up their normal functions in every tissue in the body which is why effective mitochondrial function is critical for wellbeing and overall health. Assisting mitochondrial health therefore means support for many body systems and ultimately healthy ageing. 

As an antioxidant R-lipoic acid can give support to protect from oxidative stress triggered by imbalanced blood sugar levels or imbalanced weight, support healthy states of blood vessels and balance inflammatory responses in the tissues.

Effective high dose

R lipoic is an effective tool against nerve pain. I highly recommend 2x 250mg a day. It is quite effective and better than alpha lipoic

I have suffered from severe nerve pain in my left leg due to an injury for the past six years. Taking R-Alpha Loic acid, has helped to reduce the burning and numbness in my leg significantly.

With ALA, Biotin depletion
19-10-2015 17:43:39
Remember ALA depletes Biotin stores in the body. I made mistake of not supplementing with x-tra biotin and my beautiful hair turned to straw and fell out. Many companies incl. biotin in their ALA products so this doesn't happen. And many do not. If you take a brand that has no biotin, must supplement or say goodbye to your hair.

I have been using ALA for more than one year. I started using Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid about 6 months ago and found it more effective. I am taking 600mg a day. My HBA1c dropped by about 1% within last 3 months. Also numbness on the legs eased substantially. Thanks to HEALTHPOST & Life Extension.

R-Lipoic Acid is the most natural form of ALA whereas and better absorbed. Life Extensiion do make excellent products, and whilst expensive, worth the extra cost.
