If you're taking a conventional alpha lipoic acid supplement then you need to know that the health promoting‚ anti-aging benefits associated with this nutrient are only being delivered by half of your supplement. The other half actually antagonizes the effects of the good half of the supplement. Many molecules used by the body have a specific "handedness" (chirality) and in some cases‚ synthetic versions if these molecules have a different "handedness" than the natural molecule.
It is important to note that unless specified‚ "lipoic acid" supplements are a 50/50 mixture of the natural R(+) lipoic acid‚ and the synthetic S (-) lipoic acid. The S (-) form actually acts in opposition to the activity of R (+) lipoic acid. Common "lipoic acid" supplements are thus like a house at war with itself. The S (-) form should be removed from supplements in favor of pure R (+) lipoic acid as found in AOR's High Dose R-Lipoic Acid.
R (+) Lipoic Acid is a powerful and versatile antioxidant known for its ability to help protect the brain and nerve cells from free radicals and toxins. Lipoic acid ha also been used to support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
A study in a short-lived mouse strain demonstrated that R (+) lipoic acid can dramatically increase its lifespan. Neither S (-) lipoic acid‚ nor the racemate (blend of R (+) and R (-)‚ had any significant effect.
High Dose R-Lipoic Acid is formulated to provide a higher bolus dose of this powerful nutrient based on recent research.
