R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is the natural form of ALA in the human body, plants and animals. It is the exact same type found naturally in the body. It contains Bio-Enhanced R-Lipoic Acid the patented R-Alpha Lipoic Acid that is highly stable at room temperature and in the stomach, with high absorption and lesser side effects. It is four times more potent because the body can “recognize” this form of ALA and needs only a lower dosage. Each vegetable capsule contains sodium lipoate 187.5 mg. (Providing 150mg R-Alpha Lipoic Acid).
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a naturally occurring compound that is present in the cells. It is involved in energy production by converting sugar to energy. ALA is a powerful antioxidant with a unique feature. It is able to recharge and rejuvenate the oxidized antioxidants such as glutathione, vitamin C and vitamin E to make them active again. After recycling glutathione, ALA will become DHLA, an even more potent antioxidant. It helps to improve blood sugar control by facilitating the transportation of sugar into the cells. ALA also reduces fat deposition in the fat tissues. It is good for diabetic neuropathy, a type of nerve damage that occurs when a person has diabetes.
Adults: Take 1 capsule once daily, preferably before meal.
