- Supports healthy inflammatory responses.
- Enhances glucose transport.
LIPOIC ACID is a naturally occurring chemical produced by every cell in the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid has been called the “metabolic antioxidant” by Dr. Lester Packer, considered one of the world’s leading experts in antioxidant research. Even though Lipoic acid is made naturally within the body, there is good evidence that our bodies can lose the ability tosynthesize enough Lipoic acid when we need it most. Although the body produces smallamounts of R-Lipoic acid necessary for metabolism, this may not meet the needs of the body for free radical quenching. Supplementation may be beneficial and can produce profound therapeutic benefits.
CHRONIC SYSTEMIC INFLAMMATION is a prerequisite for ALL the chronic degenerative diseases of aging. Alpha R-Lipoic Acid has a positive effect supporting healthy inflammatory responses.
ALPHA RS-LIPOIC ACID (ALPHA LIPOIC ACID OR ALA) has been used in Europe in doses between 500 to 1000 mg per day, producing profound benefits in patients with glucose regulation disturbances, nerve conditions, and insulin resistance. Scientists are now applying the active form of ALA, Alpha R-Lipoic acid to even more challenging cases!
HOW DOES R-LIPOIC ACID DIFFER FROM ALPHA LIPOIC ACID?
Molecules in living systems generally exist in only one form. When the same molecules are synthesized in the laboratory they consist of equal amounts of both forms. Examples of this would include: dl-alpha tocopherol (synthetic vitamin E) and d alpha tocopherol (natural vitamin E). The synthetic ‘unnatural’ form of ALA is Alpha RS-Lipoic Acid or more commonly called alpha lipoic acid and the natural “fully active” form is alpha R-Lipoic acid. The ‘R’ form is the proper structural fit for membrane receptors and enzymes and therefore is metabolized more efficiently and with much greater potency.
