Super R-Lipoic Acid 240 mg 60 Vegetarian Caps by Life Extension
Alpha-lipoic acid consists of two different forms (isomers) that have vastly different properties. The “R” form is the biologically active component (native to the body) that is responsible for lipoic acid’s phenomenal antioxidant effect. The “S” form is produced from chemical manufacture and is not very biologically active. Typical alpha-lipoic acid supplements consist of the “R” and “S” form in a 50/50 ratio. That means a 100 mg alpha-lipoic acid supplement is providing 50 mg of the biologically active “R” form.
Life Extension’s Super R-Lipoic Acid converts the biologically active “R” form of lipoic acid to sodium-R-lipoic acid which is more stable and bioavailable than other forms of R-Lipoic Acid.
Suggested Use: Take one to two capsules daily as tolerated, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. Take capsules at the same time, preferably on an empty stomach.
