R+ Alpha Lipoic Acid Stabilized BioEnhanced! Now WITHOUT Magnesium Stearate! R-Lipoic Acid is the form of lipoic acid that occurs naturally in plants, animals and the body and is responsible for the specific beneficial effects of alpha lipoic acid. R-Lipoic Acid, is the natural form of Lipoic Acid — the exact type the body makes and requires. It is significantly more potent than Alpha Lipoic because the body “recognizes” it and “knows” how to use it. Research indicates that not only does the human body have difficulty absorbing the unnatural (S) version; it may actually inhibit the most essential properties of natural R-Lipoic Acid! Our proprietary stabilization process converts the biologically active, natural “R” form of lipoic acid to sodium-R-lipoic acid (Na RALA), which, in a recent human study achieved 40 times higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid. This is the best R-Lipoic Acid and explains just part of the reason for the differences in cost. PLEASE READ WellnessPartners Feedback for extra reviews!

R-ALA is one of the very few substances that can actually cross the blood/brain barrier to enter the brain and go directly where it is needed most. Stabilized R+ ALA, not the combination of the R+ and S ALA supplementation causes increased levels of glutathione, which helps the body dispose of toxins.
Normally once an antioxidant has eliminated a free radical, it is lost forever. Lipoic acid is the only antioxidant with the unique ability to regenerate/recycle itself, and other antioxidants such as vitamins C & E, so that they can continue destroying free radicals. This is why ALA is known as a network antioxidant.
R-ALA is also crucial for energy production. It helps break down sugar for the production of ATP, the fuel used by cells to keep the body running.
Ralapure R Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is the only antioxidant that is both fat and water soluble. This is important because Ralapure R Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) can access all parts of the cell, giving it tremendous ability to trap free radicals wherever they may be. One of the leading causes of the symptoms we know as aging is from free radical damage
