Alpha-lipoic acid is an important antioxidant that provides an extensive array of health benefits, primarily to protect mitochondrial health and promote youthful cellular energy production. It consists of two forms, “S” and “R” forms; both have different properties. The “S” form is biologically inactive, while the “R” form is a biologically active form responsible for lipoic acid’s antioxidant effect.
Our body produces the R form of lipoic acid, an excellent radical scavenger to boost body immunity against free radicals. But most of the alpha-lipoic acid supplements contain a 50/50 ratio of both “R” and “S” forms, which means taking 100mg of lipoic acid delivers 50 mg of active “R” form. That’s why our team produces a novel form of R-lipoic acid that is more biologically active and effective than ordinary R-lipoic acid.
Our advanced formula comprises a new, more bioactive form of R-lipoic acid, Sodium R-lipoate, that achieves a higher peak blood level sooner than the pure R-lipoic form. A recent study showed that supplementation of R-lipoic acid shows a rapid intake from plasma into tissues within just 10-20 minutes after ingestion. Plus, it is a more stable form and offers more excellent absorption. It promotes mitochondrial function, preserves youthful cellular energy, and inhibits oxidative stress.
The sodium salt of R-lipoic acid, which is the form used in Super R-Lipoic Acid, achieves 10-30 times higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid.
